More Dirty Dealings/More Victims
26 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This episode gets down to dealing with anyone who may be harmful to the Underwoods. Claire goes after Adam, the photographer with whom she had an affair. He loved Claire and she is only interested in her own butt. Of course, Frank knows all about the affair, like he has several times before. And of course, he is now a heartbeat from the big white house. It shows what the common person's chances are when there are powers that could simply flip you in the river. Frank destroys the man whom he always respected, the man who ran the little rib shop that he frequented, whom he actually had in his house. Remy and Tusk continue to lob missiles at the Underwoods, so the heavy hitters are about to face off. Frank wants Tusk obliterated and Claire wants him obliterated.
