Spinella is a worthy adversary. Frank looks at the big picture. Politics is never simple and Frank takes some lumps here and the President begins to look askance at him. This episode is a bit unbelievable. The brick throwing thing is a bit contrived and the fact that such subterfuge would work so well--I just don't quite buy it. Nevertheless, we see the delicate balance that exists and how nuance can lead to major decisions. However, it's really hard to swallow that someone with such a major national platform could fall into such a plot is suspect. Still, this is television, and Frank is a snake, and he has political capital to play his cards (no pun intended). The conclusion is pretty dramatic and further sharpens the cad's spear.
