Season 11 of Shameless Airs on Showtime.
The following episode of Shameless season 11, titled Father Frank, Full of Grace, picks up where the previous episode left off, with Frank’s overdose in mind.
Because this is a common occurrence in the Gallagher household, the rest of the family decides to leave him comatose on the couch while they go about their business.
There is growing concern about the Alibi as Kev and V attempt to sell the much-loved bar, but so far, none of the offers they have received have met their expectations. Meanwhile, Ian and Mickey, who are getting furniture for their new apartment and celebrating their first wedding anniversary, are experiencing tensions.
While all of this is going on, Frank reawakens from his overdose and flees the house, completely unaware of his family’s presence.
After passing through a boarded-up Patsy’s Pies, Frank ends himself to a church, where he disguises himself as a priest before being apprehended by the priest, who calls for an ambulance to take him away.
Explained How the Ending Was So Disgusting
In response to the priest’s intervention, Frank is admitted to the hospital, where it is discovered that he has caught Covid-19 and is suffering from a severe fever.
After Frank begins to have hallucinations, he believes that his nurse has the same name as his eldest daughter, who left Shameless at the end of season 9, which causes a sequence of flashbacks, he is taken back to the beginning of season 9.
The rest of the Gallagher family gathers at The Alibi for one more celebration, and while there, Frank sees himself at the bar and begins to levitate, just as he is about to be taken to the hospital.
Finally, in a letter written to his family, Frank offers some final emotional words of wisdom before his burial is held, and the alcohol present in his corpse causes an explosion during the cremation process.
