How Did Cameron Monaghan's Ian Gallagher Leave 'Shameless'?
The 25-year-old actor appeared as Ian Gallagher in his final episode of the Showtime series Sunday.
The episode showed Ian serving his prison sentence for his role in blowing up a van in a protest against conversion therapy. The closing scene featured a surprise reunion with Ian's former boyfriend Mickey, his new cellmate.
The next episode will be his last as Ian Gallagher.
The Shameless official Twitter account shared a clip of the reunion and other moments from Ian and Mickey's relationship.
"Locked up with our hearts on lock. #Shameless-ly gave this #Gallavich video a little edit," the post reads.
