House of Cards Season 3: Unanswered questions

Standard

By Anamika Roy

I had promised myself I would take a full week to get through this season of “House of Cards,” but the truth is, this is a show that was meant to be watched in an irresponsibly short amount of time.

The credits for episode 13 in season 3 are still rolling in another tab as I write this. That’s how badly I wanted to get my thoughts on this season off my chest, so here goes.

It’s only been two episodes, but Season 4 of “Scandal” is already much more enjoyable than its predecessor. Without a central villain (i.e. both Pope parents), the show has been free to return to its roots of Olivia solving problems and the White House slowly crumbling from its own lies. You know, the usual trashy, intoxicating mess that drew people to “Scandal” in the first place. Let’s discuss where we’re at two episodes in:
