Oh thank goodness: everyone’s favorite manipulative political bastard, Frank Underwood, found his world both turned upside-down while seemingly standing on top of it at the end of last season’s House of Cards. But a man like our new — spoiler alert, my friends! Season 2 non-seers should get the heck out of dodge right here and now — leader of the free world isn’t one to let pesky details like the death of his right-hand man Doug Stamper at the hand of Rachel Posner get in his way! And, naturally, things are really working out for him because of it! Ha ha ha, just kidding.
In fact, things are looking bad. Like really, really bad. Some shit? It’ll probably go down. If this trailer is any indication, I mean. Our new POTUS has a lot of stuff on his plate: from his wife’s congressional hearings, dead soldiers, un-returned handshakes from seemingly important world leaders, protesters with momentum, and Cashew’s dad still on his trail (or under his thumb?), there’s many a moving part President Underwood is going to have to handle.
Is there any universe in which this whole situation goes well for him?
Given the rumors that this third installment of House of Cards may actually be its last, it feels safe to assume that we’ve got ample useage of the phrase “bombstastic clusterfuckery” in our future. Our only hope? More Cashew. Because duh.
House of Cards premieres February 27, 2015 on Netflix.
