House of Cards, Season 2
“Stronger than lover’s love is lover’s hate.
Incurable, in each, the wounds they make.”
– Medea, Euripides
Description: An amazing image, embodying the delicate and complex relationship between Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire Underwood (Robin Wright). Frank learns that a general, whom he is now to honor at a public ceremony, raped his wife when the two attended college together. The viewpoint, we take as observers, is extraordinary. After we witness him commit a murder to keep his own secrets, we are reminded of Frank’s genuine loyalty, compassion, and humanity. Or is it merely a double standard?
