Sometimes it isn't the government that's to blame for back door deals. Back in 1869, two wily financiers, Jay Gould and James Fisk, thought they could outsmart the government and corner the gold market, but were foiled by the administration.

I'll be honest right out of the gate: I thought the latter half of "House Of Cards" Season 1 was weak. So imagine my surprise when I not only enjoyed the first episode of Season 2, I absolutely loved it -- it's one of the best hours of TV I've watched in recent memory.

Sometimes smashing a sink faucet with a hammer is just smashing a sink faucet with a hammer. At other times, as in the finale of House Of Cards' first season, it means a whole lot more. Blunt force might silence a dripping faucet, but it doesn't stop the underlying problem. Frank is surely going to find this out.

In these final episodes of the first season, House Of Cards has that feeling of last-minute panic. Everything is on the verge of crumbling and Frank's future looks bleak. Out of the blue waltzes Major Dad himself -- yes, Gerald McRaney -- and we have yet another wild card in the mix.

Chris Jancelewicz

For the first 10 episodes of House Of Cards, there has been a layer of secrecy and double-dealing over everything. With Peter's very public implosion, that layer has disintegrated, and the characters on the show have no choice but to reveal their truths. This is the moment before checkmate. It's make-or-break for Frank.

It was bound to happen before long: all of Frank's allies are turning into enemies. Even his beloved Claire, the woman who's stuck by him for decades, has had enough of his lies, his manipulation and his using. For her to break away signifies a major shift in House Of Cards -- could it be that Frank's carefully calculated empire is finally crumbling to dust?

All of our main characters are either rewarded for their bravery or punished for their cowardice in this episode, and we start to see the decline of many relationships we thought were stable, relatively speaking.

This is a nice character exploration of the two main (male) characters, Frank and Peter. Like Episode 3, this one goes off on a personal tangent, and whisks us away from the grey sameness of D.C. To be honest, this show needs it.

You know when a TV show tries to convey an issue via a metaphor, and sometimes it's subtle, but other times it has all the covertness of a heavy brick hurtling through the air? Well, in this episode, House of Cards uses a very literal representation of what it's trying to communicate. In this case, yes, it's a brick, and it's smashing through Frank's window.
