The further we get into the seventh season of “Shameless,” and the more we (start to) have hope that some of these characters could be starting to think about a more positive future. Take, for example, Fiona continuing to establish herself as a modern businesswoman, and Ian taking a moment to stop and consider some of his actions. Of course, not everyone in the cast is on the way up; the best example we can offer up there is Frank, who continues to stumble his way into good things even when they are not deserved.
“The Defenestration of Frank” is the title for the next new episode, and it certainly looks as though there are a wide array of things happening that could throw the show into further chaos. Just think; we’re almost at the halfway point of the season! There is so much more still to come with this show.
Synopsis (via TV Guide) – “Fiona discovers the laundromat is for sale and decides to invest in it. Meanwhile, Frank revels in the good fortune of his latest scam; Ian grapples with mixed feelings about Trevor; Debbie deals with a bombshell; Carl has second thoughts about military school; and Kev and V discover a shocking secret about Svetlana’s father.”
We read words like “bombshell” and “shocking” here, but the one thing that we do think as a result of that is rather simple: Is there really anything about this show that would actually surprise us? We have a hard time thinking so.
If there is one major tease we can offer from what we saw in the promo for what’s coming up next, it’s that at some point, you are (somehow) going to see law enforcement get involved in all this.
