The Gallaghers have always scraped by, but this season finds some of them finally getting a leg up, with more changes than the Chicago River. When Frank awakens from a coma to learn that his loved ones tossed him in the river, he declares war – Gallagher vs. Gallagher. But Fiona is too busy improving her own life to worry about Frank’s. After last season’s betrayal, she’s now moved on, and nothing is getting in the way of her new life as manager of Patsy’s – including her family. Gallagher Golden Boy Lip finishes up his time in rehab, and emerges with a new outlook on alcoholism and his future, whereas the once-unstable Ian is now thriving as an EMT and in a comfortable relationship. Debbie is still figuring out how to be a good mom to young Franny, while Carl has some big decisions to face as he enters manhood. With Fiona’s new determination, will the rest of the Gallaghers fall apart without her there to pick up the pieces?
