Shameless Season 4 Episodes

12 Episodes 2014 - 2014

Season 4 of the misadventures of Chicago's Gallagher clan begins with the family being thrown into upheaval when a drug-addled and deathly ill Frank (William H. Macy) suddenly reappears. He tries to contrive an accident that will net him a big insurance payment, so he can afford a potential liver transplant. He also stalks his previously unseen daughter Sammi (Emily Bergl) and is surprised to learn she has a son. Meanwhile, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) cares for the household and works at Worldwide Cup with her boyfriend boss Mike Pratt (Jake McDorman), but she continues a secret affair with Robbie (Nick Gehlfuss). Her troubles only increase when she uses some cocaine to celebrate her birthday and young Liam gets into it and has to be rushed to the hospital. Jail suddenly becomes a real possibility for her. Elsewhere, Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) steals dogs and holds them for ransom, so he can earn some drug money for Frank; Lip (Jeremy White) struggles in school and with the ladies, and gets a surprise visit at college from Army investigators; and Sheila (Joan Cusack) has her first successful online date with a Native American cowboy named Roger Running Tree (Eloy Casados).
