House of Cards Returns Without Frank Underwood, But Not Really.

No. 1,585

He died, hated by everyone and especially by the wife whom he made President.

Of course, there is an equally creepy drama behind the drama, as Kevin Spacey is gone from the screen in disgrace.  The first episode is dark and difficult to watch.  She quarrels with her advisers, none of whom seem to respect her authority.  They urge her not to attend an event at a military base due to a rumor that an assassination attempt is in the works.  When it happens, unsuccessfully, she comes to the conclusion that Frank was murdered and she is next.  And so, Season 6 will again be dominated by the story of the character who apparently cannot die, even when he does.

We know that he is still around when, in the final scene of the first installment, she discovers his ring on the bed and puts it on the middle finger, which she raises ceremonially to her yet to be determined enemy.

In a parallel theme, Claire has her own childhood #me too story fueling her anger (make that rage) and for this there will also be revenge.
