Remy Comes On
27 January 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I agree that at some point Frank does need to be reeled back a bit. Zoe and her relationships seem to be getting in the way of her agenda, but that is all about human nature. We find that there are other forces at work. Remy is a guy who seems to have tremendous power and influence and Frank, for the first time, seems to be a bit concerned about his position in the pecking order. Remy stands off in the distance while Frank has the ear of the President. I agree with another reviewer about the President's seeming lack of things to do. "The West Wing" made us aware, in a very realistic way, how the job eats at every moment of time. Claire continues to seek her own power base and it's obvious her relationship with Remy and his entourage are going to be a force for the future.
