Goofs

When Zoe is looking for Frank on the Cathedral Heights metro platform, a station list is seen on the wall across the tracks. It clearly lists the stations of the Baltimore Metro, starting with Johns Hopkins Hospital on the left, then Shot Tower, etc. They added signage for a fictitious Cathedral Heights station in DC, but neglected to correct the station list sign. The scene was clearly shot in the Baltimore Metro system, not DC. See more »

Best Episode of Entire Series
15 February 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

after watching this episode i immediately turned on my laptop and i'm writing this review. Wow!!. At first i didn't had high hopes because David Fincher wasn't directing but this episode proved me wrong. Carl Franklin did a very good job on direction, Beau Willimon's writing is spontaneous, witty, interesting. This episode has a slightly different style of narration than its predecessors which i liked personally, It was fresh, great acting by everyone as usual and most importantly the plot was so amazing and it was all so rightly placed and timed and directed which gives this episode a whole new sense of story line and shows more of Underwood's "Dark side"
