Did You Know?


Secretary of State Durant tells President Walker that the Japanese are sending three destroyers and a light cruiser to a sea area disputed by China. However, Japan designates all its ships as destroyers and the classification light cruiser hasn't been used by the USN since at least 1975. Peru operates the only light cruiser still in service anywhere, the BAP Almirante Grau (ex-HNLMS De Ruyter). See more »

Doug as Liability
26 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode starts out with an unbalanced Marine carrying a bomb in a duffel bag, hoping to kill Claire because she had an abortion. She is now pretty much confined to the house, which puts a damper on lobbying for her sexual abuse bill. Jackie starts sleeping with Remy and we wonder what his motivations are. He is connected to Tusk, but how is she in the picture. She has two nasty encounters with Frank and Claire over the fact that she has qualms about the bill. She is an ex-military person who has killed several people. It is hard for her to hang her military people out to dry, even if they deserve it. Doug, who has had a lot of problems with alcohol and is in Frank's back pocket begins to create doubts. He feels he is being devalued by Frank and that is probably true. He also realizes he loves Rachel but is in such an awkward position. Things are starting to go sour for him. He is an incredibly sour individual and yet it is hard not to feel a bit sorry for him. Excellent performance by a guy who has made a career of playing heavies. As this chapter concludes there are some strange goings on concerning him.
