The Rats Are Chewing the Ropes
24 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I would like to get to the point in this series. This one is a bit talkie but necessary. The interesting thing in the eye of the law is that when the vote comes, it is possible that we could have a split ticket. This means a President and a Vice President from different parties (namely, Conway as President and Claire as Vice President). I have not looked ahead, so I am positing this as a way things could go. Through most of this episode, we have both parties, but mostly the Underwoods, strong-arming House members. It's hopeful that there will be some more resolution in Episode 58. One significant member has disappeared and is being sought. Also, there is a tense scene as Frank doubts Doug's loyalty. Granated, Frank dragged Doug out of the depths of depression and drunkenness and saved his life, but Doug is so right to feel betrayed, considering what he has done for Frank (both good and evil). Meanwhile, we are watching Claire prancing around considering her own possibilities.
