House Of Cards Spoilers

The third season of House of Cards ended with Claire taking her leave of the White House – and potentially her marriage with Frank – after he demeans her and demands she embrace a more subordinate role as the First Lady. Will she be coming back? That’s the question that showrunner Beau Willimon wants people to be asking.

“We know she’s walking out. She says, ‘I’m leaving you,’” Willimon told E! News. “…Whether it’s completely broken, that’s what we want people sucking on like a lozenge for however many months until we release the next season.”

While it’s unknown whether or not Claire returns to President Frank Underwood’s side, it is known where she flees to – home to Texas. Claire begins season four at her childhood home, where she reunites with her ailing mother, played by Ellen Burstyn. 

At some point, Claire decides to fully step outside of her husband’s shadow and launch her own political career. She’ll be helped in the endeavor by a new character played by Neve Campbell.

In addition to Burstyn and Campbell, House of Cards‘ fourth season will also feature Thor’s Colm Feore and Suicide Squad‘s Joel Kinnaman in the cast.  Feore is said to be playing a “high-profile” character, while it’s rumored that Kinnaman could be playing a politician running against Underwood for the White House.

The fourth season of House of Cards will be the last one with Willimon as it’s showrunner, and he plans to make it a memorable one that will flip the script of the series, according to the A.V. Club.

House of Cards Season 4 will hit Netflix March 4 at 3:01 a.m. EST.
