It begins with what appears to be President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey)’s right hand man Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) digging a grave – a particularly ominous sign giving his penchant for murder. The camera pans out to reveal President Underwood is there to help him out – also disturbing given his own experience with taking life.
So what’s really going on?
Frank and Doug are there for a groundbreaking ceremony, complete with supporters holding “Underwood 2016” signs. While that event may seem innocent enough, the creepy music in the background signals that all is not well in the Underwood administration.
Frank certainly has plenty on his hands in the new sesaon – from running a country to winning an election to trying to repair his relationship with his wife Claire (Robin Wright).
