F Is for Family Season 5 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 4, Frank’s mental peace is thrown off the rails when his emotionally abusive and cruel father, William, enters his life and home. The only other difference, other than his age, is the fact that William’s degrading behavior has mellowed down as he began growing old and that’s why Frank finds it difficult to convince others that his father bullied him as a kid.
Throughout the season, Frank strives to be a better father and husband to his family, than his father was to him and his mother but things don’t always work in his favor. In the finale, William apologizes to his son for all the things he did in the past. After knocking on a lot of wrong doors, Frank manages to reach in time in Sue’s delivery room. Sue gives birth to a baby girl and Frank introduces her to his messed-up family. An overjoyed Frank takes the baby to meet her grandfather, only to find him in the middle of a stroke.
Season 5 will pick up from the heart-wrenching ending of the fourth season. We might learn the fate of Frank’s changed father William after the stroke. William’s passing might have a significant impact on Frank’s conscience and psyche. He might begin to feel guilty about neglecting his father’s effort to mend their estranged relationship and be a better father to Frank in his last days. Meanwhile, the Murphy family might throw a celebration for the newest addition to their family. Kevin and Alice might explore their relationship further.
