Since Franks colleagues asked him to step down, in this episode this is the first time we have seen him actually engage with his supporters. Of course, there have been snippets but nothing like the scenes we are presented with here. It’s almost like watching a famous star or football coach get a team raring to go before a match; a touch of hooliganism some might say.
This is a slick, crisp episode and what House of Cards is all about. The political polish that this encompasses is so exhilarating and holds your attention until the bitter end. Another engaging watch and certainly one that makes you want to stick the next episode on immediately afterwards.
