Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 2: “Go Home, Gentrifier!”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 2, I learned that going into business with Frank Gallagher can be risky, but he does know what he is doing…

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In season 11, episode 2, “Go Home, Gentrifier,” Kev and V decide to team up with Frank to make some more sales from their new weed business. Meanwhile, Deb wants to throw a princess birthday party for Franny and Carl starts his first day on the force.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 2 are:


“First day on the job.”

Carl is more than excited to start his first day on the job, but his new partner doesn’t really want to rush into danger. His idea of the perfect day involves jamming out to “Shake That Ass,” enjoying a nice meal with his mom and getting in a quick nap at Best Buy while responding to fake calls.

Carl wants to actually experience some action, but changes his tune slightly when his new partner agrees to buy him one drink. Only his new partner starts chugging beer and ends up having a heart attack while having sex with a police groupie.

It looks like Carl may be getting a new partner after all…


“A Gallagher lives here!”

Lip is upset when he returns home and finds out that his windows have been broken and trash is dumped on his yard. Lip has really been trying to make an effort on his new home and asks his neighbor to keep an eye out.

Later in the episode, Lip and Tami discover that his neighbor and her friends were the ones messing up their house because they don’t want the property taxes to go up. The front garden was looking really nice, Lip!


“Shut the f*ck up Jerome!”

Mickey still doesn’t seem overly motivated to get a job, but Ian tells him that there will be no more sex until he does. After watching TV all morning, Mickey sees a hilarious ad from Jerome asking him what he is doing with his life. Mickey seems somewhat inspired, but tells Jerome to shut up.

After failing his “role playing” interview at the warehouse, Mickey decides to put his entrepreneur skills to the test to make some money on the expired food that is being tossed out, but Ian still tells him he needs a new job.

I’m confident that there is the perfect job out there for Mickey, but it may be a little while until he finds his true calling. Gotta love his enthusiasm though!


“What could be more fun than that?”

It’s Franny’s fifth birthday and she is initially very excited, but it looks like Debbie is the one who truly wants to throw a princess party. After finding the perfect decorations at the dollar store, Debbie is extremely disappointed when the bouncy house arrives with a Count Dracula theme.

Franny actually seems to love it, but Debbie wants a princess one, revealing that perhaps this party is really more for her…

Later on, the princess sing-along gets a little stale, but luckily Uncle Mickey shows up with a gun to win over Franny.


“I would feel the same way if I was going into business with me…”

V is out of weed and is worried about how they will continue making their new edibles, but Kev suggests that they go into business with the “illegal drug connoisseur,” Frank Gallagher.

Frank tells them they can go for a trial run, but his product is actually pretty impressive and brings in a lot of money. After the trial run is over, Frank reminds them that he did most of the work and changes the cut.

V thinks that they should try and get the product themselves, but Frank is one step ahead of them and now changes the split to 70/30. 

Going into business with Frank can have its rewards, but Frank is ready to defend his skills if necessary. Watch out, V!

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
