“You can only lose something that you have. You cannot lose something that you are.”

– Jim Morrison

This Jim Morrison quotes has a couple of great nuances: Can he lose his wife? Should we think of her as “something that [he has]” – or something that has become a part of him? And how much more tragic for him not to be able to lose something that he is, if who he is turns out to be pretty awful.

Title: Loneliness

Description: The quietest moment in the story is a poetic one. Separated from his wife Claire (Robin Wright), Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) faces true loneliness. In this image, the darkness threateningly creeps up from behind him, as his sole companion and most faithful ally has disappeared.
