Remy, Tusk, and the Whole Ball of Wax
26 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Agents, double agents, unhappy wives, Chinese wafflers, Native Americans, and so on. The chicanery continues as Frank realizes that there isn't an easy fix for things. The President comes to dinner, filled with angst and jealousy, admiring the "wonderful" marriage that Frank and Claire have. Of course, they have no idea how poisonous that relationship can be. Everything is smoke and mirrors. The recent extortionist who has knowledge of the Claire's abortion lies has now become another serpent in the garden. We don't really know at this point where he is going to land, but like so many others, he has his own interests. Frank finds out that the Indian run casino that used to be a big supporter for him has been channeling huge sums of money into the Republican attack adds. Doug has met with the unstable mega-rich Chinese guy who now wants the big bridge build. Doug also is becoming obsessed with Rachel and is missing her. This is going to be very interesting.
