After nine seasons, Shameless fansÂ are saying ‘Bye Bye Bye’ to their beloved Fiona.
Emmy Rossum announced she was leaving the show prior to the airing of the ninth season. Fiona Gallagher, the family matriarch who helped keep the Gallaghers afloat when Frank and Monica were absent, finally called it quits in the season finale. After seven years on the popular show, Fiona is no more.
In typical Fiona fashion, her exit is unceremonious but it was also surprisingly tame. Throughout the course of the season, had made a mountain of poor financial decisions, eventually leading her to work at a gas station. However, in the penultimate episode, an old business partner offers her $100,000 to buy her share of land.
It’s been a wild ride for Fiona. Her investments, both wise and unwise, were a staple plot device for years on end. Finally, after all this time, Fiona has to choose whether she will stay or go.
After she packs her bags,Â Debbie finds $50,000 in a card and a note on the fridge. All it says is, Love you.
Insert emotional rollercoaster gif here.
We’ll miss you, Emmy.
