When Kevin Spacey was fired from House of Cards after several sexual assault allegations came out against him, we weren’t exactly sure what would happen to Frank Underwood. I mean, if Melania Trump has taught us anything, it’s that you can have a first spouse technically be present without seeing them for weeks on end. Alas, the latest trailer dropped and, well, they didn’t go that route (I guess a SPOILER ALERT after the jump).
Vulture says the final season of HoC will come out on November 2, just before the midterm elections. I smell a conspiracy! Who is going to vote when they have the ability to binge watch President Claire, er, Robin Wright melt the flesh off anyone in front of her without so much as raising her voice?! The latest trailer shows Claire standing precisely where Frank once stood to take a leak on the grave of his father and, welp, she seems to be poised to do the same to Frank’s (yup, he’s dead)…at least verbally:

Not only does Claire show no remorse while wearing something that seems more believable as something worn by the commander of the USS Enterprise than by the Commander-in-Chief, she dances on the dead to taunt Frank for being such a loathsome figure who talked to the camera that they buried his ass in the backyard next to his dad and whatever other country critters he grew up with in South Carolina. She says that, while she might need bug spray to go to his Hallmark Print-at-Home tombstone and pay her “respects,” bitches will have to wait in line for her own mourning ceremony since she’s much more likable than him when SHE talks to the camera. Well, that pregnant woman she threatened to withhold health insurance from in the first season might not be in line rocking a mourning veil, but you get the idea.
