Robin Wright as Claire Underwood.
Specifically put, how did Francis Underwood die, after the man who played him, Kevin Spacey, killed his career? The character he left behind also is unseen in any form during the first five hours of this final and shorter eight-episode season, which begins streaming in its entirety on Friday, Nov.
Francis Underwood otherwise is very much heard of. Not only from steely Claire Underwood Robin Wright but by a steady stream of loyalists, enemies and grovelers. All of this is tied to the overriding mystery of whether Francis in fact died peacefully ha! And they want Claire to either be their puppet or be impeached to pave the way for toady vice president Mark Usher Campbell Scott.
House of Cards also brandishes and embraces the MeToo movement, but in ways that might be seen as counter-productive. Claire is a feminist strictly on her own terms, with a long-acquired taste for the jugular.
Perhaps a certain real-life sitting President would relish having someone like her as a running mate. Except that Claire would be calling the shots. Emulating her late husband and de facto mentor, Claire also has taken to talking to the camera.
During the re-juiced Episode 5, her seemingly darkest hours as President are no cause for worry.

But this one seems no less bloody. B-minus Email comments or questions to: They and the other young passengers were all unarmed. But officer Roy Oliver nonetheless fired away impulsively, ending a life that had barely gotten started.
He was ultimately convicted or murder and is appealing his prison sentence. But when gunfire unrelated to the gathering broke out, Oliver eventually began shooting first before claiming that he and his partner that night, Tyler Gross, were in danger of being struck by the car Vidal was driving.
Representatives of the Balch Springs police department declined to be interviewed by Scott, and the attorney representing the town, Joe Tooley, would have been wiser to also stay off camera. He comes off as cavalier and uncaring when Brown presses him on other previous signs and on-duty incidents indicating that Oliver might well be a trigger-happy cop.
I see an officer who was working hard.
