Tom Hammerschmidt: Your party? It's rotten to the core. And the core is Underwood. Aren't you angry that he stole your presidency?
President Garrett Walker: I'm angry. I'm angry at myself... for not seeing it. And for not fighting it.

The Hostages
10 March 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The primary focus of this episode is the negotiations to get back three hostages being held by Islamic terrorists. Frank is strictly in charge but Conway gets to actually negotiate with the bad guys. The terrorists are American and are holed up somewhere in the USA. Since the Underwoods and the Conways must share quarters briefly, it allows for some serious interaction. The arrogant Conway battles wits with Frank. It would appear that the President has something up his sleeve. There is a great dialogue between Claire and Mrs. Conway. She asks Claire if she ever regretted not having children. Claire responds by asking if she ever regretted having them. Frank is orchestrating an effort to find the hiding place of the terrorists. Conway continues to gloat, full of himself to the nth degree. This situation sets up the final episode. Doug, by the way, is starting a relationship with the transplant widow. If she only knew.
