The ending was very Shameless... it gave me just enough closure, but it was missing something.

Also, I am really upset Emmy did not return for the final episode. I though they were alluding to it with the emergency contact, but there was not enough time in the episode so I kind of gave up hope.

 

Spoiler

The show had initially planned to have Fiona appear in the finale, but showrunner John Wells revealed to TVLine why Emmy Rossum could not film a last appearance.

 

 

He said: "She very much wanted to [come back], and we worked and worked on it. She lives in New York with her husband, and we managed to time it just at the wrong time, unfortunately.

 

 

"We hit the second or third time everything shut down with two-week quarantines. So just the timing didn't work out. It was disappointing for all of us, and especially for Emmy, but with her other obligations, she couldn't go back and quarantine for two weeks in New York after being in Los Angeles. It's sad."

 

Asked what would have happened if Rossum was able to film the finale, Wells said, "what we were talking about was that with the information that the family had about Frank's dementia, she was going to come back and deal with Liam's [Christian Isaiah] guardianship and deciding where Liam was going to be as they sold the house and be a part of all those decisions, [and we'd] have some more moments with Fiona and the rest of the family.

 

"We never got to the point [of] actually writing it and then having to ditch it, but that was the intent."

That's all well and good, although disappointing but they couldn't have made a phone call or a Facetime with her lol? The emergency contact thing at the hospital was a perfect set up...
