Greetings from Lithuania.

"Chapter 56" (aka Night Of Election) was a superb, intense and highly involving episode of "House of Cards" - best episode of season 5 so far.

Tightly paced, superbly acted and written it felt more like a thriller. There were surprises and unexpected moves - and while i'm not sure if its possible that this kinda outcome would have been in real life, it sure was entertaining to watch it on a small screen.
