Spoilers for 'Shameless' Season 11 Episode 2 'Go Home, Gentrifier!'
Mickey Milkovich (Noel Fisher) seems to be stealing the show this week. Fans are already in love with his job interview scene, as he brought back a fan-favorite line from Season 2 but they were even more thrilled to see him crashing Franny's (Paris Newton/Presley Schrader) princess-themed birthday party to bring her a present that Debbie Gallagher (Emma Kenney) most definitely does NOT approve of. Franny does, however, loving the present she got from "Uncle Mickey", warming the fans' hearts with trademark 'Shameless' hilarity.
In the latest episode of 'Shameless', Debbie tries to throw Franny the princess party that Debbie never got to have, going all-in on the princess theme – despite Franny not wanting that kind of thing at all. The princess party is broken up when Mickey crashes it, bringing Franny the first present that truly excites her – a pair of toy rifles.
The moment where Franny was seen dressed as a princess and running around with a rifle had fans baffled and intrigued viewers the moment it showed up in the episode's promo. Fans finally know why that happened, with one writing, "I WAS WONDERING WHY FRANNY WAS RUNNING AROUND WITH A RIFLE IN THE TRAILER OH MY GOD."

Other fans were both touched and amused by Franny bonding with her Uncle Mickey. "franny’s reaction to mickey’s gift for her is everything," wrote one fan. "FRANNY CALLING MICKEY UNCLE MICKEY IM-" wrote an emotional viewer, sharing an image which reads, "Don't talk to me I'm crying". "Can we please get more Uncle Mickey and Franny?" asks another fan.
Many fans also chimed in to wish Franny a happy birthday, with some believing that she's the future of the Gallagher family. "This Franny-centric episode only confirms my belief that she’s the leader of the Gallaghers. Happy Birthday, Franny!" wrote a viewer. Of course, while the princess party may not have been enjoyed by Franny herself, the entire 'Shameless' audience definitely got a kick out of it, as Debbie had everyone - yes, everyone - wear tiaras, and sing the birthday song until good ol' Uncle Mickey and his toy rifles came along. "awwwe i love him so much <3 more ian in a tiara please," wrote a fan.
