Jim and A.Ron return to the seedy amoral world of “House of Cards”, taking in the first three episodes and finding it more nuanced and complex as it returns to the purer forms of politics from the first two seasons.  Frank is trying to prove that he doesn’t need Claire to win, and failing miserably.  Claire schemes on a plan that seems on the face of it insane, but what is she actually getting at?  And how will Lucas’ sudden return to relevancy impact Frank?  Which of the seemingly endless stream of weapons of mass destruction being hurled at the highest levels of government will be the first to go off and destroy everyone?  Is there any good to root for at this point?  We’ll be back with coverage of the next six episodes over the course of next week.  See you then!
