Because Frank is so evil and ambitious, did the writers try to soften the edge a bit. Was there a time when there was some decency to this man? In this episode, he returns to his alma mater. A new library is to bear his name and this is a great honor. While there he meets with some of his old friends and drinking buddies and seems to have a connection to times that were simpler and more positive. Peter is now running for Governor, becoming a pawn in Frank's game, but Remy and his huge corporation become less than enamored. Still, Frank has a couple of epiphanies which will probably be rejected. There is a really great scene where the men seem to be equals for a while because the past is still the past and we sometimes reveal ourselves, warts and all.
