The 9th season finale of Shameless aired last night, and we had to say goodbye to Fiona Gallagher.
Fiona’s been one of the strongest character on the show. If you’ve been a fan f the show from the very beginning, you’d know there’s no shortage of ill-luck afflicting the Gallagher’s; Fiona’s had her fair share, even going as far as venturing into entrepreneurship only to lose everything.
I liked the way the Emmy Rossum played character was written off; a wonderful send off to arguably the most important character since the start of the show. Her scene with Frank is easily the most emotional of the entire episode.
Shameless has been renewed for a 10th season. It’s left to be seen just how gravely Fiona’s absence will affect the rest of the characters – her siblings, Vee, Kelvin.
I’m not even sure how I’ll feel watching the show next season knowing fully well there’ll be no Fiona. The writers and producers will have to come up with a really engaging story so that Fiona’s absence won’t become the bane of the show’s existence.
Bonus though: Ian’s returning. Lip’s girlfriend is still pregnant, Liam’s becoming more independent, and Carl’s being dragged back to school. There’s no shortage of drama in the life of the Gallaghers. And that’s a good thing. 😁
