In spite of the actual events that went down in the third season of House of Cards, I genuinely think it was the weakest so far. I’m hoping that the fourth returns the show to that initial intensity.
The Underwoods seem at war with one another here. “We had a future until you started destroying it,” Frank tells Claire during the trailer. Even the video’s description nods at this plot line.
Frank and Claire continue their pursuit for power, battling everyone in their way, including each other.
That wife against husband dichotomy was at work in the third season, too, and I didn’t much like it then. Maybe it’ll be better this time around.
We’ll know soon enough. As the trailer indicates, the next season of House of Cards will go live on Netflix on March 4, 2015.
