A few months from now, we can expect ourselves to be glued to television screens, binge watching "House of Cards" season 4. The Machiavellian drama, which never ceases to surprise us, will premiere in February 2016, and with a new season comes a new plot.
So far, there have been a number of plot speculations, predictions and rumours about "House of Cards" season 4. The latest instalment in the political drama series will focus on Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), and well, his obsession with power. (Let's face it, other characters in the series serve as a foil to the cold-hearted megalomaniac who is currently the President of the United States.)
Director Michael Dobbs said in an interview to Express that Frank will get comeuppance in season 4. "Oh, all politicians get their comeuppance at some point but the question is whether they survive and come back for more."
Perhaps Frank's fascination with power will motivate him to exact retribution? However, who will be on the receiving end of Frank's wrath?
Since season 1, Frank has killed those who have threatened to expose his diabolical, nefarious activities. Victim no.1: Peter Russo; victim no 2: Zoe Barnes. Both the characters met with an untimely death just when Frank was on his way up in Capitol Hill. And it comes as no surprise that the President would plot another murder in season 4 when he is contesting for a re-election.
"House of Cards" cast member Michael Kelly voiced his doubts over his character, Doug Stamper's longevity in the series. "I was alive at the end of three, that's all I can say. I wouldn't be surprised if Beau was behind my bedroom door right now. I put nothing past him," he told Inquisitr.
In season 3, Doug's relationship with Frank is troubled, and he is made Chief of Staff once again only after Remy Danton quits.
Although Doug burns the piece of paper which contains details about Claire's abortion, we feel we haven't seen the last of it yet. Perhaps another burning piece of evidence will shame Frank, and the President might just make Doug his new victim.
"House of Cards" season 4 will premiere in February 2016 on Netflix.
