Shameless Series Finale Spoilers: Will Anyone Find Happiness?

at .

If you'd asked me a few years ago how I would feel about saying goodbye to the Gallaghers, I would have probably cried.

Nowadays, however, the show has fallen into a pattern of repetitive storylines and characters making terrible decisions.

There is an end in sight!

Saying Goodbye - Shameless

Shameless Season 11 Episode 12, titled "Father Frank, Full of Grace," is the name of the series finale, at least according to Showtime.

That was also the name of Shameless Season 1 Episode 12, and given that Frank has been questioning his morality of late, it might hint that he's at peace with dying.

Here's the official logline for the series finale.

Searching for a Home - Shameless Season 11 Episode 10

"Ian and Mickey shop for furniture for their new place and Kev and V look for a buyer for the Alibi," it reads.

Ian and Mickey made a big leap forward on Shameless Season 11 Episode 10. They have a lease on an apartment and are on the move to the West Side.

On the other hand, Kev and V are moving to Kentucky to be nearer to V's family.

If you watch Shameless online, you know they realized they could have a much better life away from the South Side, so it's hardly surprising.

Frank Plots - Shameless Season 11 Episode 9

Selling the bar might prove difficult because we're in the middle of a pandemic, but my theory that Debbie could purchase it remains.

Then again, her plot in the finale sounds mildly concerning.

"Debbie plunges into a treacherous world when she meets someone new," it reads.

Yes, Debbie is still trying to find a way to cope with the news her family is leaving her behind and starting their own lives.

Lip is Mad at Debbie - Shameless Season 11 Episode 9

We've witnessed her descent in recent weeks as she's struggled to find a home that doesn't make her feel lonely.

"While Lip settles for a new job, Carl finally finds his calling in a new role on the police force."

Lip's arc has slowly been coming full circle, and his move away from his family, complete with a new job, should allow him to spread his wings and be the family man he's always aspired to be.

"Frank comes to terms with his own mortality," is the end of the logline, and it's pretty ominous.

Frank Plans - Shameless Season 11 Episode 9

We know Frank was planning his demise on Shameless Season 11 Episode 10. He wants to be in control of his fate.

While we have plot details, we still don't know whether any beloved characters from the past will return.

Given the pandemic, it's difficult, but there could be a Zoom call between all of the siblings or something.

If they're all going their separate ways, they'll need to find a way to keep in contact.

Catch the series finale on April 11.

Shameless Quotes

I'm not gonna ask your forgiveness because you bunch didn't do s--- for me, so let's just call it a draw. I know some of ya think ya hate my guts, and truth be told I never liked any of you much either. But we're all Gallaghers. My only advice is to stop worrying so damn much. You're supposed to ask people on their death bed if they wish they'd worked more or spent more time with their family. [Laughs] Me, hell, I wish I'd partied more. Nobody ever said our neighborhood was the Garden of Eden but it's been a good home to us, to me, and you kids. I'm proud of all of you, because every single one of you reminds me a little bit of me, Lip, you're smart as a whip, you just can't seem to get out of your own way. You'll figure it out. Ian, industrious, incredible work ethic, not a clue where you got that from — got the mental illness from your mother. The only way I can understand how you ended up marrying a Milkovich. Carl, I never could figure you out. Can't believe you betrayed the family and became a cop. I'm hoping you're already on the take. Debbie, you remind me of your mother, and not in a good way. Good luck in life, you're gonna need it. Liam, you're the apple of my eye, you handsome devil. Everybody says you look just like me. Oh, Kev, Veronica, you're overrated as friends, always sticking your noses in my family's business where they don't belong. You're moving, I say good riddance. And me, Frank Gallagher, father, teacher, mentor, captain of our little ship. People say you can't drink your troubles away, I say you're just not drinking enough. I guess that's it. Not much left to say really. Except, time's precious, don't f---ing waste it. Have a good time. I sure as hell did.


Welcome to the South Side, bitch.
