Frank's Prayers Are Answered On 'Shameless' (VIDEO)

Frank Gallagher was terrified that his meal ticket Sheila would find out that he killed poor old Dottie. Convinced that the key to keeping his secret lay in forcing Sheila back into agoraphobia, Frank tried every "Shameless" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on Showtime), bizarre and underhand trick he could think of to destroy her new-found confidence.

Just when it looked like he had no more tricks up his sleeve and would be found out, Frank grabbed his bag and prepared for the inevitable. And then came a miracle: Frank Gallagher's prayers were answered.

As Sheila made her way along the sidewalk, the wheel from an aircraft plummeted to earth and crashed right in front of her. Terrified, she ran back to the house and slammed the door behind her.

Meanwhile, an incredulous Frank dropped to his knees and fervently gave thanks for his good fortune.

Will Sheila ever leave the house again? Is Frank's secret safe? Find out on "Shameless," Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on Showtime.
