The President in Counseling
26 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frank gets the Chief of Staff to resign. Doug realizes that th woman in his life (in his mind) is now having an affair with a young reborn woman who has befriended her. The young woman who was going to support Claire's efforts to attack her rapist has a panic attack and withdraws. Meanwhile, the rift between the President and the First Lady finds them seeking out marriage counseling (of course, their efforts to keep this quiet may be compromised by fifteen Secret Service agents in the house and in the yard). The building of the bridge goes ahead through Frank's intervention and now Tusk is going forward, taking no prisoners. This is a harsh episode where we get to see the entire pot coming to a boil. There is little, if any humor, in this series and it is so raw.
