If you havent finished season 2, skip this post Embarrassed:

I dont think season 2 was as good as season 1. I think the acting was better but the writing kinda lulled and then they decided in the last 3 episodes to explode. Its like the writers decided lets just kinda tie up season 1 characters and move on to season 3 when FU will be president. Frank killing Zoe was diabolical but i dont think it was necessary. She might have pissed off someone coz she started the episode being fvcked, telling Lucas to come already and ended up being killed, that's some Shakespearean sh*t there. Anyway the shock of her death wore off by episode 3.

What i didnt like and i had to take a break by episode 9 was the fact that the viewers are to suspend their belief and go along for the ride. We just accept that FU and CU can and will get away with any and everything without consequence, no karma, whatever. That they'll get their way regardless. That the president is so dumb and can be so easily manipulated by both Tusk and FU. That Jeanine and the rest of the reporters just rolled over on the conspiracy. The whole entitlement reform thing was a farce and not a reality. Wtf was Rachel still alive, or around, and Doug following her around like a love-sick puppy. Gavin doesnt get his revenge?

Nearly each episode should have been subtitled "the one where Raymond Tusk and FU yell at each other".

But the acting was great. Claire killed it the whole season. She played that ice queen bitch to a T. She will be heavily gif'ed this year. That threesome scene though
LOL

I disagree (ghost test to follow):

I found this season much better and much more diabolical than season 1. There were some lose ends that made know sense and didn't have much clarification, like the firing of Christina, she just dropped from the face of the earth.

As far as Doug and Rachel, Rachel had been out of danger for a LONG time and didn't need Doug keeping tabs on her anymore but Doug was addicted to caring for her, that was really evidenced by his reaction to seeing her in bed with Lisa. I'm sorta sad he's dead, he just wanted to please Frank and I think that is a lot of the reason he kept tabs on her so long as not to miss anything.

That threesome though...I was surprised.

And I do think it's a bit far fetched that the president was that dumb but when you're under all that stress placed on you, your marriage is falling apart, you're taking drugs...simple things can slip by and it's easy to shift blame on the person with the dirtier hands.

I'm just still in awe that a man that was skipped over for Secretary of State was made VP and them POTUS without any elections or blink of an eye just for revenge.

I think I came when he put that ring on and knocked twice on the desk. I can't wait to see what they do in Season 3.

Christina being around wasnt really relevant but Claire used her to plant the seed in Tricia's mind, so i guess she was useful in that regard.

But viewers knew FU was gunning for presidency himself in episode 2 or 3, when he said "Walker is only president for now" so his breaking up Tusk and Walker's friendship and getting Linda fired were keys to that goal. Its just surprising that Tusk, who is supposedly Walker's friend for over 20yrs, would turn on that friendship so quickly and play into Frank's hands.

Season 3 is likely a new slate. Rachel will disappear since FU doesnt know she's alive. Gavin might be the only one left who knows some of what happened to bring down FU. Lucas and Jeanine storylines are probably dead too.

Frank crossed from being just an anti-hero, he's a straight up villain now, i think that's part of what's bothering me about season 2
LOL

See I always knew Frank was a villian, there was never a doubt in my mind. Are you annoyed with those new reporters? I feel like they just dropped them in there with no real link or introduction I found myself watching and thinking 'Who the hell is this Brotha? Who is this racially ambiguous woman right here?'

I think the friendship between Walker and Tusk was...one sided maybe? I don't see how Frank could have destroyed that friendship either. Or how Walker didn't know that he was funneling money from China through a casino to the Dems AND the Republicans. I was sad about Linda but she got what she deserved too.

What the hell is Claire doing now? I was surprised she gave CWI to that woman. I know she is First Lady and sh*t now and has plenty she can do (I know she is going to want to fix that *&%^$#@Eed up bill) but aside from that...what? Try to have a baby? Adopt a baby?

I think Frank might come after Rachel. I think he knows that she is alive, but unsure of where and that can be easily found out through Doug's records and stuff.

IDK what Gavin will do with what he knows. I know Lucas is done for and Janine is going to stay the outta dodge.

I finished up season 2 and unfortunately I was not impressed:
 
I just couldn't get into how they just manipulated every single dayum person. I just can't with house of cards right now. How did all of that turn into all of this, i am just amazed at how he manipulated his way to be president. That was crazy...i don't know what to say..I honestly cannot express properly right now.
 
Doug kept that girl around for his own reasons, she was his new drink. Basically he feel off the wagon, he should have called that guy that offered to be his mentor. He let it affect his work and now he in the woods bust upside the head.
 
I still don't understand or maybe i missed why the female WIP did not back the bill, if anything she knows how the military is. I didn't like that at all!! I was in the military and i know how it is, hell i wanted to back the bill. SMDH.
 
And don't let me get on Meechum..........ugghhhh. He been feeling chick from season 1. Then him feeling on FU hand like that. WTH was that about!!!!
 
Oh and F%^$ Remy Danton
