Sierra seems to really like Lip too, but her responsibilities as a parent make this a different type of relationship for Lip. With her being a single mom she has to keep a level head. Lip has not had a real relationship with someone for more than one season, maybe Sierra will change that.
But did we talk about Trevor yet? The new guy in Ian’s life.
He’s also transsexual which has brought up a few questions. Most people, like Lip, although not the politically correct in their comments, do not mean them as rude, more like unsure of what to say or how to say it. Ian’s face when Lip put his foot in his mouth – priceless.

“Every time I look into one of you kids’ faces, I see her face looking back at me, smiling, laughing,” he says, tearfully. “She was strong, and you’re strong. She was brave, and you’re brave…. Hate her if you want, but she’s in you, and that’s a good thing.”
