With a tight race and low voter turnout on Election Day, things look grim for Frank. But he’s still got one more trick up his sleeve.
Is anyone else not enjoying this season so far? The Underwoods are becoming such caricature villains now and I’m rooting for them to stumble and fall because them always winning and getting their way through devious means make my stomach turn. I didn’t mind it so much in previous seasons, but all these election machinations is coming too close to what happened in the last election that it’s turning me off this story and this season.
What was that about Frank enumerating the years and saying “One nation, Underwood.” Are they really going to alter the term limits for the presidency? Are they so deluded that they think an Underwood can stay in office until 2036? They have way too many enemies now and this “house of cards” that they have built will all inevitably fall down. Surely they can’t sustain this for the next 20 years? Someone will have to squeal and reveal every wrong that both of them have done. Jackie and Remy need to come back.
I wanted Claire to push Tom and his boring ass off the stairs. Anyone else? I just hate this character so much and he brings my enjoyment of this show (what’s left of it) to a complete halt every time his boring face appears.
