Shameless (TV Series – ) - IMDb
Jimmy always bought whatever he thought Fiona needed without asking her first. He applied for a studio apartment in Michigan before asking Fiona if she'd leave her brothers and sister to be with him.
When Jimmy finally needed Fiona to support him emotionally the way he was always there for her, she failed to do so. Yet for some reason, she never properly thanked Jimmy for his constant generosity. Thanking Jimmy would have required Fiona to admit that she could use some help, and Fiona always refuses to rely on anyone other than herself.
She made a big gamble buying an old laundromat, but she quickly made a significant profit on that purchase and was able to use the money she made to buy an entire apartment building. That never would have happened if she was still with Jimmy, because Jimmy's constant pampering kept her from having the drive to hustle to make money.
Without Jimmy in her life, Fiona was forced to push herself to her potential. She just seems to be at her best when he's not in the picture. He resented his parents' dream of him becoming a wealthy and successful doctor, but he asked Fiona to move with him to Michigan so he could go back to medical school. He loved the chaos of the Gallagher house and enjoyed providing for Fiona and her siblings, but in a moment of anger, he called her home a slum and implied that he deserved better.
When he returned to Chicago for a second time to win Fiona back, he spied on her for weeks before announcing his arrival. Outside of knowing that he wants to be with Fiona, Jimmy doesn't know much else about his future or what roads he wants to take in life.
