Congratulations this week to Jennifer for her Rainer Maria Rilke quote!

“Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.”
[German: ” Vielleicht ist alles Schreckliche im tiefsten Grunde das Hilflose, das von uns Hilfe will.”]
– Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

House of Cards, Season 4, Episode 13, 55:33

Title: Terror

Description: “We do not fear terror. We are the terror.” The house of Claire and Frank Underwood appears to collapse, and then they utter these words. This climactic scene that ends the show’s fourth season, and we are left afraid and uncertain. A timely message given that, in today’s political climate, we are also left wondering whether there is anything past fear and uncertainty.

Thanks again to all who contributed to make this a great series! We’ve had a lot of fun putting it out, and it’s been interesting to think through during this especially tumultuous political time. We will have a concluding post recapping our thoughts on the series, so stay tuned. You’re not quite rid of us yet. 😉
