Shameless 3.09 Sneak Peeks: Frank Becomes a Gay Rights Activist

shamelessFrank Gallagher has always been a necessary evil on Shameless. He may embody just about every negative adjective one can think of, considering the way he treats other people and the lengths he’ll go to avoid taking any responsibility, but he’s a constant reminder of just how far the kids have come and how things could be even worse if he was still in the home with them. However, disgusting as he may be, what would happen if Frank suddenly grew a conscience and actually did something with his newfound motivation?

On the next episode of Shameless, Frank has (unwittingly) turned into a gay rights activist, disrupting a mayoral campaign rally to complain about…domestic partnership rights. He preaches to the crowd about how he’s not allowed to share in Christopher’s insurance benefits and has to go to the free clinic for health care, drawing their eyes, ears, and cell phone cameras in what could turn out to be a viral moment and a vital moment in this year’s race. It brings up an interesting question that’s not often associated with Frank Gallagher: is doing something right for the wrong reasons okay? While it may be another example of his not wanting to get a job and take care of himself for once, Frank makes good points about the differences between his life with Monica and his life with Christopher, which might gather enough steam to help the cause of equal rights. Could he have actually helped someone other than himself for once, even if he didn’t mean to?

Elsewhere on Shameless, Fiona gets a new office job that comes with a corporate culture she can’t assimilate into, while Lip and Mandy have a public altercation over the future of their relationship.

Shameless airs Sunday at 9:00 on Showtime.

Will Fiona get the hang of her new job? Is Mandy trying to control Lip or is she merely trying to help him? What will the rest of the Gallaghers say after seeing Frank on the news?
