Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 9 episode 13: “Is That Bone?”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 9 episode 13, I realized that it’s never easy to get back up and start over, but sometimes it is necessary.  Even if it feels hopeless, every now and again you will be surprised by what comes next.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In tonight’s episode, “Lost,” Frank suffers an injury that gets him a pass into the hospital, but most of the staff are not too thrilled with his presence.  Meanwhile, Fiona starts over, Lip has a heart-to-heart talk with Tami, and Liam decides he has had enough.  My top 5 moments from Shameless season 9 episode 13 are:


“It took them two days to realize I was gone.”

During the episode, Fiona notices that Liam is not in his room and she begins texting him to try and find him.  Everyone else starts reaching out to Liam too, but we find out that he has been hanging out at his friend’s house and comments on how long it took everyone to notice he was missing.  Liam decides not to answer any of their texts and continues to have some fun.  I can’t say I really blame him, but it looks like he is getting some quality Liam time in.  After all, there is always some kind of commotion going on in the Gallagher home.  Enjoy your vacation away, Liam!


“Pull the trigger!”

Carl is still upset about Kelly breaking up with him and he hates it that Debbie is trying to move in on his territory.  To make matters worse, he also finds out that he did not get into West Point.  During work, a robber points a gun at Carl and he simply tells him to pull the trigger because his day can’t get any better.  Only the robber actually shoots the gun and Carl proceeds to beat the crap out of him.  Perhaps a job in law enforcement is in his future?  Later on, Debbie tries to make a move on Kelly and is rejected.  Carl and Debbie actually share a sweet moment together, as Carl tells her that she will find someone to be with someday.  It’s nice to see that these two can still support each other even though they were both initially fighting over the same girl.


“The nuns know.”

The gig is up, as Kev and V’s daughters are finally spotted together at preschool.  The nuns call up Kev and V to discuss the matter further and explain what there are options are.  They can either pay back tuition to prevent being brought up for fraud or Kev can play Jesus and drag a 300 pound cross to the church while wearing his revealing costume.  I mean, I guess it beats paying the $1400, but it’s not every day that you get to see Jesus walking down the block.


“Is that bone?”

After Fiona’s former building is bulldozed, Frank is still inside and ends up injuring his leg severely during the commotion.  Frank says it is just a scratch, but his bone is literally sticking out.  Frank is no stranger to the emergency room, as the members of the staff know him quite well and refuse to give him pain medication.  We learn that Frank has been to this particular hospital 52 times and he has no insurance.  However, Frank gets a lucky break after all, as he ends up with a short visit and lots of pain medication before being dumped out on his street by the ambulance.


“Did you let Lip recruit you into that cult?”

Fiona continues to go to AA meetings and is starting to pick up the pieces.  After meeting with her lawyer, she learns that she needs to prove that she is a contributing member of society since she is facing assault charges from the woman she punched in the face during the block party.  Fiona can’t really be picky with her options and ends up taking a job at a gas station.  At the end of the episode, Max walks in and offers her a real chance to start over.  He explains that they are moving forward with the project and that he would like to buy Fiona out, which would give her $100,000.  Talk about a lucky break.  I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat when I saw a man walk in the gas station, as I was kind of hoping it might be Jimmy.  However, it looks like this chance encounter will finally allow Fiona a fresh start.  Stay tuned for the season finale next week, as we say goodbye to our beloved Fiona Gallagher.  I’m not sure I am ready to, however.
