'Shameless' Season 11 Episode 4 Spoilers: What is Frank Gallagher's plan to get rid of invading Milkoviches?
No matter how bad your family may be, there's always another family you're able to look down upon. For the Gallaghers, it's the Milkoviches, and despite having two of them welcomed into their home, it's another thing entirely when the entire Milkovich clan moves in next door. Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) may be a layabout drunk without a penny to his name, but one thing he does have is a lot of (misplaced) pride, and he's not about to let the Milkoviches move in next door without a fight.
The only real problem is that the Milkoviches have a lot of guns.
Still, if there's a will, there's a way, and Frank tends to keep whittling away at a problem until things work out his way. He's up against a whole clan of racist, violent, loud and deadly neighbors armed with nothing more than tenacity and decades of street smarts. He won't be working alone against the Milkoviches, though -- he's brought in Kev Ball (Steve Howey) and Liam (Christian Isaiah) to help him out. With their heads combined, they're...probably going to get into more trouble than they started out with, but the important thing is that they're trying.
The Milkoviches have a lot of enmity with the Gallaghers -- the clan's head, Terry Milkovich (Dennis Cockrum), straight-up tried to kill his son Mickey (Noel Fisher) when he got married to Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) in the Season 10 finale, and a reconciliation between the two was never on the cards.
The official synopsis for this episode reads, "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." You can watch a clip for the episode, entitled 'NIMBY', below, which sees the Gallaghers bearing witness to the Milkoviches moving in, with Mickey explaining some of the family's more peculiar ways.
This episode of 'Shameless' releases on January 10 at 9 PM ET on Showtime, as well as earlier on the Showtime app.
