I'm sorry, I've watched every episode of Shameless, and while all of them have been enjoyable, this was just stupid to comprehend. Like they would buy him faking his death, and then not take the extremity when that is usually their policy? Come on now.
And the way the family responded to him averting danger was unrealistic too. They obviously don't want him dead, but it seemed like a loving family at the end, not the Gallaghers we all know.
