A Bridge Too Far
25 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frank attends a re-enactment at a Civil War battlefield near Spotsylvania. He comes to find out that an ancestor was killed fighting for the South. There is a metaphorical thing going on here with Ulysses S. Grant winning because he had more soldiers, even though he allowed his own men to be butchered. Events thicken as negotiations with the Chinese begin to go sour over a huge bridge to built on Long Island. The Chinese representative is a bit unstable and is a worthy adversary for our favorite Vice President. Meanwhile, fallout occurs over Claire's announcement of her abortion after a rape. Claire enlists the aid of the First Lady in her campaign to reform the military on these issues. A young man finds out that the abortion took place five years after the rape and moves in to extort Claire and Frank. The discuss whether to go along with his wishes. Lucas's contact is now seen as an absolute sycophant, living in abject fear day by day. Lucas is the target of greater powers. Meanwhile, Frank continues to bring more and more distance between Tusk and the President. Excellent episode.
