Great episode
27 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

After chapter 49 ended - i could safely say, I would definitely vote for Claire Underwood, and not so much for Francis, who is literally a John Doe in the White House.

This was one of the best episode in a so far absolutely superb season 4, which is the best season since season 1. There were many touching moments including Clair's mom which was superbly played by Ellen Burstyn - no one these days plays a dying old lady better then she does (old Murph) - i'm kinda kidding here - she is a terrific Oscar winning actress.

Overall, chapter 49 is a superb and the most touching entry into a superb season 4. While only 3 episodes left, can't wait to see what happens next.
