Claire, Coming Home to Roost
24 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This episode, has, I hope, finally set up what is to come. We have been brought into all of the various facets at play, going all the way back to Zoey Barnes. Claire has become President for two weeks until a duly elected one can be established. She starts out as Frank's soulmate, but if the camera doesn't lie, she is enjoying the power granted her, including the nuclear codes. There is a push and pull again among those who will vote to decide the election, with Frank and Claire continuing to push at them. The Russians, wanting to meddle in the election (lo and behold) have put troops in Antarctica, supposedly protecting their oil rights. Also, there is a leaker with them who knows all about Frank's previous actions. Meanwhile, Conway is becoming unhinged. He is apparently suffering from a bit of PTSD and has some anger issues. He goes to the Congressional Black Caucus and rants (even though much of what he is saying is correct), embarrassing himself. We see the loss of confidence from his beautiful wife and his campaign manager. There is an ugly scene where he insists on flying the airplane he is on. Also, back at the Washington Herald some you know what hits the fan but it leads to some further investigation. Can't wait to see what's next.
