Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 10: “DNR”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 10, we were reminded about the importance of family and that there’s nothing worse than being alone…

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

In season 11, episode 10, “DNR,” many of the Gallaghers try to find a new place to live, but some are having a tougher time than others. Meanwhile, Liam spends the day with Frank and Kev and V test out life in the south.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 10 are:

“You’re going down.”

Carl and Officer Tipping respond to a call where a protest is happening with several tenants who have been kicked out of their homes. Carl gets upset when he sees the owner in his shiny Mercedes double parking.

Carl decides to make a difference and arrests him, telling him that he’s everything that is wrong with the world today, but his other officers let the man go and explain that the rich people fund the police and that they can’t just arrest them.

Carl initially thinks he is fired, but later learns that it’s going to take a lot more than that for him to lose his job so it’s safe to say that Carl will be a cop for quite some time.

“Happy to help.”

Kev and V initially seem out of place in Louisville while helping V’s mother with her move. However, V starts to realize that she feels right at home there after all and there may even be a new political job on a campaign waiting for her.

Meanwhile, Kev’s hunger leads him to the ultimate bartending gig where he gets to put his oreo drink skills to the test. Kev makes more in tips than he ever has at The Alibi and is told that there is a job waiting for him if he wants it.

It looks like Kev and V are going to move after all. As long as they are together, I’m happy with the outcome, but it looks like everything is coming to an end. Let’s hope they all still stay in touch with the Gallaghers though.

“Let’s go for a swim.”

Ian and Mickey find an apartment on the West Side, but Mickey is not sure he is ready for joggers on all sides and domestic beers that cost four bucks. However, the apartment is actually kind of perfect and Ian clearly wants to live there.

Ian reminds Mickey that maybe it’s time they “stop doing shady stuff and grow some tomatoes,” but we know that Gallavich will always be from the Southside no matter what.

It looks like it’s the start of a whole new journey for our favorite couple!

“All By Myself.”

The funniest moments of this episode featured Debbie going around with Franny looking for apartments. Debbie is clearly not ready to be without her family and the soundtrack behind her featuring the song, “All By Myself” was pure genius.

After checking out the first apartment, Debbie thinks she wants to move into a room with a big family, but when she learns that the room is all the way out back and she’d be alone, she starts to have some crazy what-if scenarios as well.

I’m curious to see where Debbie ends up and I’m still hopeful that she can work things out with Sandy in the end.

“Tough day.”

Liam spends the day with Frank and admits to him that he doesn’t really know how to do this. Liam is the only one who actually likes Frank and it’s certainly a lot for an eleven-year-old to deal with.

Frank later has “Do Not Resuscitate” tattooed onto his chest to make the decision a little easier, but I’m wondering what is actually going to happen to Frank at the end of the series and how it will truly impact the rest of the Gallagher family.

Meanwhile, Lip deals with some struggles of his own and tries to get the house ready for buyers leading to more unexpected bills and a fight with Mickey over a pair of pliers.

Later on, the painting issue is solved when Franny decides to decorate it with stickers and the Gallaghers leave it on a subway.

At least that crisis is solved, but we only have two episodes left to wrap things up.

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…

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.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 9: “Survivors”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 9, we were reminded about the importance of having a true “home.” Not defined by the location or the walls, but by the people we love the most.

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

In season 11, episode 9, “Survivors,” Ian and Mickey attempt to honor Terry’s last wish as they track down a woman from his past. Meanwhile, Liam worries about where he will live, Frank plans out the perfect heist, and Kev is left in charge of the girls.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 9 are:

“So this is the job?”

After Carl’s crash last week, he is now moving to the eviction team. He basically is there to provide support/back-up and watch people get evicted and he even has one of his former training officers back…Tipping. Tipping seems excited to be back, but is using way too many metaphors to promote his new philosophy.

I have a feeling we may get to witness Carl work with every department on the force at this rate…

“It’s time for me to step up and be a father.”

“Now?” Frank decides to pull off the perfect heist he planned years ago at the Art Institute and attempts to put back together his old crew, but this proves to be more challenging than he realized when he learns that one is in a wheelchair, one is rich, and the other is dead.

Frank’s memory continues to waver in and out, but it looks like he somehow pulled off the job. Does this mean that he is actually going to buy the Gallagher house?

I’d love to see that extra footage…

“You left Jemma and Amy with Kevin?”

I mean, he is there father as V points out, but V is busy helping her mom move to Kentucky. V is less than impressed with the new change of scenery, but it might be nice for the girls.

Speaking of the girls, Kev has his hands full when he is in charge of watching them at the bar. The girls don’t listen to him and end up getting into the edibles and then running off. Kev is certainly trying his best, but these girls are running circles around him…

Let’s hope they are OK.

“We should at least try and find the bitch.”

Mickey is dealing with some mixed emotions after his father’s death. He finds a box marked “Rachel” with some old photos and an address. Ian and Mickey decide to track down Rachel and learn that she was Terry’s first love.

The more they talk to Rachel, the more they begin to realize where Terry’s hate came from, as we learn that Rachel is Jewish and Terry was not allowed to marry her and she is now married to a black man.

Later on, Mickey decides to honor Terry’s wish to have him cremated, but they forgot to claim the body at the morgue and he’s off to a shared grave. Luckily, Ian and Mickey decide to light his remains up on fire anyway while giving us a delightful rendition of “I Will Survive.”

Seriously, these Gallavich moments have been absolutely amazing this season. They should do a spin-off! It looks like Mickey can move on, but it was nice to see a softer side of him.

“Are we selling or not?”

During the episode, Debbie continues to clash with Lip over selling the house and Liam is extremely worried that he is going to end up homeless. At the end of the episode, we witness two heartwarming moments.

Debbie reveals to Lip that she doesn’t want Franny to be alone and worries about her growing up without her family around. Lip promises that they will still have weekly dinners together, which was a nice gesture. I’d love to see that continue because the Gallagher family has to stay together in some capacity.

Meanwhile, Lip finally goes to talk to Liam about everything and tells him that he can live with him and Tami, which was a really touching moment. Liam always gets forgotten so this was really nice to see.

Although now that Frank stole that painting, I’m wondering what’s truly in store for the infamous Gallagher home…

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!
