Last season of Shameless was nothing short an emotional roller coaster, with Monica’s death ushering in a new era for her just-remarried husband, Frank, and their kids. It seemed like the family was finally back on track—or, really, on track for the first time ever.
Fiona was successfully running two businesses and dipping her toes into Chicago’s real estate market. Lip was trying to get sober. Ian found his calling as an EMT. Debbie was pursuing her newfound passion for welding. Carl left his criminal ways in the past and embraced military school. And the youngest Gallagher, Liam, began attending a wealthy local private school.
Everyone seemed to be on the right path—but this is Shameless, and we know that won’t last too long.
8. Frank To Be Different
Monica was no doubt a terrible mother to the Gallagher brood, but now that she’s officially dead, it’s time for Frank to stop living in his drug- and alcohol-fueled world and actually try to help his children succeed in life. Wishful thinking, but worth a shot.
