Only Doug can’t get yummy skin.

When asked about his proposed links with Feng, Frank reminds everyone how he can be a charming son of a bitch: “Other than being plastered all over the news, his name means nothing more than Kim Kardashian.” He even made a lawyer laugh with that one! The whole interrogation scene was also a nice way to tie all the ongoing stories together.

[do action=”moment” emo=”Shocking” title=”He… he doesn’t have any plays left?”/]

For the first time in the show’s history, Frank seems to be grasping at straws. He doesn’t even reassure us Netflixies with his usual monologue. I’m about as clueless as him as to where this whole casino deal is going, but I get it: there’s really no way for him to avoid major setbacks going forward.

[do action=”moment” emo=”Sad” title=”Everybody goes after Sharp.”/]

Jackie Sharp gets hit from all sides here, and only because she takes a stand that won’t profit anyone’s agenda. I can smell all the murderous actions building up.

[do action=”moment” emo=”Relief” title=”Doug acting as the fall guy.”/]

I might lose sleep for being so harsh on Doug. He’s not a bad guy, he’s just easily addicted to anything and everything. He does have a huge heart, though, and his loyalty to Underwood should pay off down the line. That is, as long as he doesn’t commit something irreparable–which is where this is headed, I’m afraid.

[do action=”moment” emo=”HolyShit” title=”Meechum threesum”/]

Claire is all alone at home drinking her wine when Meechum gets caught in her web. Then Frank come back home and with a sudden hunger for her prey. Then they fuck. The show isn’t scared to toy around with crazy twists that lead nowhere. It might just be wasting time at this point, but I’m definitely enjoying it.
