After teasing an ever extensive fight between Frank Gallagher (William H Macy) and the rest of the Southside being gentrified, 'Shameless' Season 11 finally pits the Gallaghers against their long-time enemy - The Milkoviches. What's better? Kevin Ball (Steve Howey) joins in on the fun too, making it a three-way fight between the Gallaghers joined by their trusted allies the Balls and the Milkoviches. But before we can finally bear witness to all that's expected to go down, the wait for the inevitable fight will be long and dreary as winters can get in some parts of the planet.

For those unaware, the Showtime dramedy is going on its designated winter break after the latest Episode 3. Wondering when they will return and what to expect from the fourth episode? Read on to find out.

Episode 4 of Season 11, titled 'NIMBY' will return in January 2021, specifically on Sunday, January 10, at its usual 9 pm air time only on Showtime. The reason behind this long break is of course the designated time off television shows take every holiday season because they know nobody is going to spend an extra minute glued to the screen, especially after the year that has been 2020. The break could also be for the series to complete filming considering they were only able to resume production very recently given the lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic. Break aside, fans should feel lucky that the show is going off-air for only two weeks and not for a whole month like some other television network shows will be doing. And even if that fails to thrill you, there is always the epic war between the two families to watch out for.

According to the synopsis given by Showtime, 'NIMBY' will see "The Milkoviches move in next door and wreak havoc, leading Frank, Kev and Liam to scheme to get rid of them; Mickey embarks on a security gig for Kev and V and drags Ian along; Gemma and Franny compete in the Little Miss South Side beauty pageant." Considering now there are two big Gallavich couples consistently moving forward in the plot, this fight between the two seems a little off at this time. Also given that Ian (Cameron Monaghan) and Mickey I(Noel Fisher) are clinging on to a rope desperately when it comes to their marriage, this war between their families could have some pretty ultimate outcomes too. No matter what, we always have Debbie (Emma Kenney) and Sandy's (Elise Eberle) relationship to look forward to.

The prospect of Mickey and Ian working or Kev and Veronica's (Shanolla Hampton) security detail brings back memories of Season 5 when a desperate Kev sought Mickey's help to have a gun after the Southside kids robbed him at the Alibi. A little kick of nostalgia in the final season is just what we needed.

'Shameless' Season 11 airs on Sundays at 9 pm only on Showtime.
