'Shameless' Season 10 spoilers see Debbie take charge of the house while Frank whines about his 'Fiona money'
Things heat up as Frank finds out Debbie is keeping money aside for garbage disposal, home repairs, taxes — the worst of the lot being the extra $600 she has taken out of his share
With less than a week to go for the highly anticipated premiere of a Fiona-sans Season 10 of 'Shameless', excitement is building up in terms of what big changes to look forward to, thanks to all the little snippets Showtime is teasing us with.
In a very recent promo released last night, we see Frank bickering back and forth with his new daughter-in-charge, Debbie, over money of course.
With Fiona leaving behind $50,000, the Gallaghers' lives can be expected to improve, but it is really Debbie's extremely cautious dealings with money that keeps the hope alive. Not for Frank though, because right now, she is denying him any leeway for a certain aspect of their budget, called savings.
As Frank looks at the new expenditure chart hanging in their house, he sulks about why he can't have his "Fiona money" right now.
And Debbie, like the spitfire mini-Fiona she's growing up to be, correctly responds: "Fiona didn't leave you any money Frank, she left money for the family and she left it under my control because she knows I'm the only Gallagher that wouldn't waste it on frivolous stupid things."
In the Debbie era of things, the $50,000 has been divided into distinct categories, including essentials and savings — the latter earning a raging shock from her father.
While Debbie is sitting here segregating money for rainy days, doctors, dentists, and ER, Frank seems shocked or at least pretends to be so exceptionally well. When he points out there's no need for doctors because the ER is free, Debbie snaps back with facts: "The ER is not free Frank. You just don't pay your bills."
Things only heat up as Frank finds out Debbie is keeping money aside for garbage disposal, home repairs, taxes — the worst of the lot being the extra $600 she has taken out of his individual share from the "Fiona money" which Debbie is allowing every Gallagher to possess.
The money is for a new couch after Frank spent the last two months nursing his broken leg and soiling the couch in the process. This is the first time we see Frank doing household chores as he believes the couch only needs some "fluffing up" for its cushions.
Only his progenies would be able to turn a deaf ear to Frank's many complaints and ideas, and in true Gallagher style, Debbie ignores Frank saying: "I got to go to work now, you know — that thing people do to make money to support their children."
The best part? She does have some advice for Frank, as she bids him adieu with: "Might want to wash, those clothes smell like a sushi restaurant dumpster on a hot day."
'Shameless' Season 10 premieres on November 10 at 10 pm only on Showtime.
