While the entire country watches Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testify to the litany of middle-aged (and beyond-middle-aged) white men who run the Senate Judiciary Committee, those sneaky bitches at Netflix wisely timed the release of the next House Of Cards trailer.
Robin Wright is running the show as President Claire Underwood, and in the newest trailer she remarks “the reign of the middle-aged white man is over.” Damn, Claire! It’s the sixth and final season, but it doesn’t seem like Claire is going to go into the sunset quietly. Frank is dead, and she’s in charge. See for yourself:
The trailer also shows everything from Greg Kinnear and Diane Lane playing sibling lobbyists looking to continue good relationships with the Underwood White House to what could be an assassination attempt on Claire….. But I just saw what looked like eggs getting chucked at her car. We see the return of Frank’s old minion Doug (played by Michael Kelly) as well as the reporter duo who are continuing the work of should-called-an-Uber Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara).
I still don’t even know how this last season is going to play out, but since Diane is involved, I hope they bring back that Sheryl Crow song from Under The Tuscan Sun in order to cut through tension in the Situation Room. But also, if it’s just Claire strutting in that severe bob and pencil skirt combo while barking orders at Russians and mouthy Southern senators, I think they’ve done a job damn well done smashing the patriarchy.
