Nine weeks after Election Day, the Underwoods work to consolidate their power. Leann tries to track down a missing Aidan Macallan.
Interesting. So the next president and VP are being voted on by the Congress and the Senate, respectively. Didn’t see this coming. This reminds me of what happened in Veep last season where the Congress had to vote on the next president since the electoral vote was also a tie. For Frank’s sake, hopefully he won’t suffer the same fate as Selina Meyer.
Claire spying on boring Tom…no one cares. It irks me that he has Secret Service detail tailing him and that taxpayers’ money is being wasted on him. Driving to NYC to meet a woman. Very nice. As if I don’t hate him already, this is just pushing it too far.
No one gives a crap about Doug and that woman he’s fucking. I fast forwarded that nonsense. I loved that he got a scolding from Frank for not doing anything in regards to locking up the New Hampshire and Wisconsin votes while LeAnn did her duty and delivered Maine for Frank. Fuck you, Doug.
Macallan should get together with Journalist Tom because I’m sure they have a lot to talk about. They recast the actress who played Lisa, Rachel’s girlfriend, from a few seasons ago. I hope she doesn’t end up dead. Doug is a wily one and I’m sure it won’t be long before he knows about Lisa’s meeting with Tom.
I’m confused about Sean, the guy working for Journalist Tom. Is he helping Seth and, thus, helping the Underwood administration so that they’ll be one step ahead in regards to the investigation? Someone explain what’s going on with this two.
Claire ripping the VP a new one was great. Did not like his comeback, though. Resort to name-calling? That’s all he can do? Amateur. So if Claire wins the vice presidency, this means she will be acting president until Congress comes into a consensus as to who will be the next president? Wow, did not see that coming.
Conway and Hannah are losing their minds and are getting impatient by the day. I wonder if the show will have Conway elected and then we’ll have a split ticket. But what will become of Frank? Hmm.
