Did You Know?


When Zoe receives a message from Francis (19m41s into the episode), she holds up her iPhone and the screen image rotates from landscape to portrait, which shows that she does not receive an actual message, but is just looking at a screen shot of a message - the lock screen on an iPhone does not rotate.

Francis Underwood: Every time I've spoken to you, you've never spoken back, although given our mutual disdain, I can't blame you for the silent treatment. Perhaps I'm speaking to the wrong audience. Can you hear me? Are you even capable of language, or do you only understand depravity? Peter, is that you? Stop hiding in my thoughts and come out.

Frank Is in Trouble.....But That Makes Him the Most Dangerous
27 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, here we go. We've got Claire, finally getting sued and being put in a defensive position. We have Frank who is now in that confusing vice presidential situation. There is a sort of conspiracy going on involving Zoe (I'm never sure what her endgame is) along with several other significant players. We have the character of Tusk, who is quite complicated and could be problematic. Still, there has been a masterful effort to put all the chess pieces in place to get the next season off to a rousing start. There is tension in the marriage. Claire would like to have a child which is yet another distraction for our venomous protagonist. Stay tuned. It's going to get more and more interesting.
