In the Martin Riggs situation over on Lethal Weapon, Frank Underwood receives an off-screen death, leaving the collection with a serious charisma vacuum. And whilst House of Cards didn’t have to deliver everybody new in to change Kevin Spacey’s character, as it had Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood to lean on, it has the uphill climb of also wrapping up the entire story in eight episodes. House of Cards is as good, and as polarizing, as it is ever been, wrapping up a pioneering collection with at least its singular voice nonetheless intact.
Claire still talks to the viewer on the other side of the fourth wall; Claire still sneaks cigarettes; Claire nonetheless connives to take down her enemies while sporting that identical stiff expression (and some notably extremely good D.C. power fits and sheaths). But it is as gradual as Congress, even with homicide mysteries and backstabbing.
