Will Hillary Clinton’s run inspire more girls-run-the-world storylines? Season 4, Episode 1: Chapter 40“Goddamn, you’re good with words.” Season 4 begins with now-imprisoned journalist Lucas Goodwin lulling his cellmate to orgasm with some kinky sex chat.
Should we all just be grateful that Doug Stamper doesn’t work for the GOP? His new role as an inmate masturbation whisperer doesn’t come from the goodness of his heart; it’s a ploy to eke out a confession from his cellmate.
The resulting intel — said cellmate is taking a murder rap for an Armenian crime lord — is enough to earn Goodwin a ticket out of jail and entrance into the Witness Security Program, a.k.a. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Claire Underwood is back at the ranch.
It can’t be a coincidence that today’s season 4 debut comes right during the primaries — the same week as Super Tuesday, in fact.
Will Trump’s alarming rise make President Underwood’s power plays, dirty-dealing, and murderous acts seem underwhelming?
Stamper and Frank, calling from the campaign trail, make it clear that they disapprove of Claire’s political ambitions.
The chief of staff goes one further by crashing Claire and Leann’s meeting with the Jones family.
Doug Stamper is also there to discourage the plan, creeping into Leann’s offices and prompting her to grab the gun from her desk.Alas, she doesn’t use it to shoot him in the groin.
