Warning: Mild spoilers ahead. President Claire Underwood sits at her desk in the Oval Office, insisting staffers read a sampling of the hateful rhetoric and death threats aimed squarely at her. “God never intended a woman to rule this land,” reads a typically hateful comment. “She is the anti-Christ. And a Jew.” “What else?” says the president. “Lots and lots of use of the ‘c’ word, ma’am,” says her aide. “You mean Claire? ” says the president with a wry smile. And just like that, in typically unblinking fashion, the final season of Netflix’s “House of Cards” is off and running. Over five seasons, “House of Cards” was a sensationally entertaining, lurid, sometimes wildly over-the-top melodrama, set against the backdrop of a rotten, deeply cynical Washington, D.C.

A new trailer for Netflix political hit House of Lies has revealed the fate of Kevin Spacey's character Frank Underwood. The trailer, released on Wednesday, shows Robin Wright, who plays Spacey's screen wife Claire, standing by Frank Underwood's grave and delivering a few emotionless words, after he's killed off. "I'll tell you this though, Francis," she says. "When they bury me, it won't be in my backyard. And when they pay their respects, they'll have to wait in line."
