Jessica Goldstein writing for Vulture:
House of Cards fired Kevin Spacey, and offed his character, Frank Underwood, amid a multitude of credible allegations of sexual predation, rape, and violence. In the wake of these revelations and Spacey’s removal came a creative opportunity: With Frank axed, the show could go places that did not involve Frank at all. Nothing in this farewell season needed to be about Frank. But virtually everything was.
Spoiler warning. Don’t click through on this unless you’re ok with that.
Jessica nails it with her criticism of this final episode and final season. It was disappointing to see a show that began so incredibly well to end so horribly.
