Sam Cline of Entertainment Buddha writes: "Season three of House of Cards is a slow burn. The first two seasons were filled with twists and turns; betrayals and deaths. Season three brings the camera back a bit and focuses on the relationship between Frank and Claire. How has their dynamic changed now that the White House is involved? How has their power shifted? Gone are the constant barrages of plot. Season three saves all of the build ups and story threads for the final three episodes."
