Season 3 of the award-winning drama picks up after Frank Underwood had been sworn into office as the 46th president of the United States. What happens to the devious and manipulative Underwoods once they have achieved everything they were striving for? Is it enough to keep their appetite satisfied?
Even though the top of the mountain is reached and there is no one left to eliminate, Frank and Claire’s scheming and ambitions remain no less outrageous. The status of the first lady is not enough for Claire while the Frank of Season 3, embattled and frustrated as he is, shows more traces of emotional vulnerability than usual, but, in the end he proves to be manipulative, arrogant and ruthless as ever. Not only do the Underwoods desire more, the power struggle escalates between them. As the domestic and international political climate becomes more and more contentious with the introduction of a vivid new character, a president of Russian Federation, the principle mission of the manipulative couple now becomes staying in power whatever it takes.
