Shameless: The Countdown

After another drunken night, Frank urinates on an electrical generator and ends up in hospital, where he is told he only has a few days left to live. Haunted by his 12-year old self, he desperately tries to find what legacy he will leave behind and attempts to seek forgiveness from the people he has done wrong by. Meanwhile, A changed Lip is welcome back with open arms on his return from university. But when a face from his past turns up, his life is turned upside down. Elsewhere, newlyweds Karen and Jamie take over at the Jockey, whilst Lillian opens up a brothel. But it attracts the attention of Stan, Tom and Carrie.
