Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 3: “Frances Francis Franny Frank”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 3, I learned that sometimes “playing the long game” can truly make a difference.

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

In season 11, episode 3, “Frances Francis Franny Frank,” Frank attempts to take Franny to school, which ends up being more difficult than he anticipated. Meanwhile, Carl gets a new partner, Tami gets some heartbreaking news, and Kev shows off with pride.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 3 are:


“It’s like a piggy bank but it’s a keg.”

Makes sense to me Kev. It’s a “keggy bank.” Kev is splurging a little bit since they are raking in the dough with their new weed business, but V is skeptical about some of his knockoff purchases.

It’s clear that Kev is excited, but perhaps he shouldn’t go around flaunting his money to everyone, especially when he ends up getting robbed.

Luckily it looks like a new business partner will be joining in the mix to act as security. Welcome to the team, Mickey!


“Can I get a picture for Instagram?”

Debbie’s business is really taking off ever since her wrongfully convicted lesbian welder profile launched and she even has time to pose for pictures.

However, things take a turn for the worse when she needs to quickly find a way to deliver snacks to Franny’s school. Perhaps it wasn’t the best idea to “borrow” your client’s food and sneak out the window…

I’m curious to see that Yelp review!


“Try not to kill this one.”

Carl’s former partner has a 60/40 chance of recovery after his heart attack, but he now has a new female partner to work with. It looks like this new partner is the complete opposite and is ready to shake things up at work.

Carl actually gets to make his very first arrest and it looks like he even learned a thing or two. I think this is the start of a beautiful partnership guys!


“I’m not anybody’s bitch.”

Ian and Mickey continue to go through the power struggle known as “marriage,” which ends up escalating into a fight at the Alibi.

Luckily V is there to break it up and manages to put these two in their places, reminding them what a true partnership is all about.

Seriously don’t mess with V! It looks like Gallavich is going strong again with these wise words!


“Today is take your grand-kids to work day.”

Sure, maybe Frank made that up, but he ends up having quite the entertaining adventure with Franny after he fails to find her school. Deb is freaking out about where Franny is, but gets a harsh wake-up call from Lip about her parenting skills.

I have to admit that the best part of the episode was this team-up between Frank and Franny, which was beyond adorable. Her negotiation skills are top notch and Frank even convinced her about the importance of “playing the long game” to make her mother happy, finally putting on the dress to take her picture for “Miss South Side.”

Frank’s sporting some new ink to honor his granddaughter and we even get a trip down memory lane and a mention of…Fiona!

Overall, I thought this was another strong episode. I can’t wait to see what happens next!


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.
