Claire Underwood: I'm willing to let your child wither and die inside you if that's what's required. But neither of us wants that. Now tell me, am I really the sort of enemy you want to make?
Francis Underwood: Did you think I'd forgotten you? Perhaps you hoped I had. Don't waste a breath mourning Ms. Barnes. Every kitten grows up to be a cat. They seem so harmless at first, small, quiet, lapping up their saucer of milk. But once their claws get long enough, they draw blood, sometimes from the hand that feeds them. For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy. There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted. Welcome back.

Let me jump right to it. The killing of Zoe Barnes is cinematically wonderful! What an extremely powerful and visual scene.
The series will never be the same without Zoe Barnes. But at the same time, her character ran its course. This was a really bold move and I just loved it.
What I loved the most was the precise moment where the camera shows Frank walking towards the shadow and Zoe running after him. At this moment, we have seen him leaving and would think that he is still going into that same direction. But no, as soon as she reaches him, he is already not only face fronting her but going towards her. Visually, that is both frightening and wonderful.
Meanwhile, Claire is suddenly becoming extremely interesting in that episode! The moment she says to her employee that she would kill her unborn child. That was quite a powerful line.
I give it 8 out of 10. Superb.
