At the end of the last episode of "Shameless," Frank ( William H. Macy) dropped a bomb: There's yet another Gallagher child, Frank's oldest daughter named Samantha ( Emily Bergl). A new preview of episode 3 reveals how that information affects the Gallagher family dynamic.
Of course, that information only comes out because Frank needs something (a kidney), but a new member of the family could change the dynamic entirely, once they all inevitably get together. Especially since it's not just one new Gallagher in the mix. Samantha has a son, making Frank a grandfather.
Don't expect him to come right out and admit who he is, though. Frank and honesty don't mesh well, especially when he has a goal in mind. The question is whether Samantha will fall under his spell or not.
With Frank off getting to know his other daughter, Fiona ( Emmy Rossum) continues to be less interested with what's going on at home, choosing instead to spend time with her boyfriend. She even meets the parents during what becomes a pretty epic dinner. The meal has nothing on the aftermath, though.
"Shameless" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
