a glimpse into the past life of Underwood and Russo
7 July 2016 | by prince_h2016See all my reviews

Into the depth of essential characters. A much needed episode that took place at the right time in the events of the series. A deeper look into the past of Underwood and Russo. Underwood outside the world of politics is just a man with his feelings, memories and close friends, though not vulnerable through his past life, in a moment he put it behind his shoulder and keep doing what he is doing best, Politics. Russo on the other hand showed the true him, a genuine fighter. A larger background was set behind his character. He always knew his people, that was what made him succeed the first time, that was what made him succeed the second time. That will make him land the governor role with a fierce fight though in my opinion.
