We didn’t see it happen, and we have no idea what happened to Christina afterwards. Meanwhile, Claire’s bill in support of civilian oversight over military sex abuse cases is going forward, even though Megan Hennessey completely melted down and was unable to testify before Congress, turning Claire into the lone voice accusing Dalton Mc Ginnis of rape.
Shouldn’t that make Claire vulnerable in some way, vulnerable beyond targeted attacks from mentally ill Marines and the possibility of Jackie Sharp not co-sponsoring the bill? Speaking of Sharp and that military bill, I was actually glad to see the Majority Whip say no to the Underwoods.

But with each chapter unspooling back-to-back-to-back, the redundancy becomes that much more glaring.
If they don’t have one, let’s create a list of options.” Why not just have the guy say, “Blah blah blah stuff about China and Japan yadda yadda yadda the end”? Honestly, the adults in a cartoon “wah-wah-wah” in a more persuasive fashion than this commander-in-chief speaks actual words of English.
At this point, even the relationships between people who are supposed to genuinely care for each other are not coming across as convincingly ... For the past several episodes, I’ve been waiting for Remy and Jackie to reveal that each has been playing the other for political gain.
