Awfully Big to Hide

This episode brings back the man who wrote the book. Inveighing his way into Claire's world, he is putting together a novel that will try to get at what makes them tick. They felt her really saw them, and for them, that isn't so good. Also, he has been courted by Frank's opponent. The main focus of this next offering has to do with the selection of a running mate. As the Underwoods underhandedly pick people that can't possibly make the final cut, they are making themselves seem powerless (when I reality, they are getting more and more powerful. They select an NRA democrat who is in the pocket of that organization. They know that when push comes to shove, he will drop out (20 million is a lot of money). Frank suggests the next candidate, but insists that I appear that the party is at the helm. Of course, he has first right of denial when it comes to responsibility. Meanwhile, there is an investigation into the deaths of Lucas and Zoe. Their former editor, Tom, has gone rogue, working under the radar. Conway continues his campaign by selecting a top military man, General Brockhurst, to be his running mate. He knows secrets about the White House that couldn't be spoken while he was in office. Another setup episode. We must admire Macbeth and Lady Macbeth (excuse me, Frank and Claire Underwood) for being two nasty master of political enterprise.
