I saw it coming from ten miles away and didn't like her character anyway. But it was indeed cold and it's sad that Doug regressed this much and is too far gone at this point. I mean, don't get me wrong, pretty much every main character is a cocksucking piece of shit, but y'know, among the cocksuckers, his is especially strong.
I'm pretty much ambivalent about the show at this point. I really didn't enjoy S3 nearly as much as the first two and outright disliked the latter-half of the season at some points. It just felt like a different show, especially in regards to the breakage of the 4th wall, which was one of my favorite aspects and the fact that it was so toned down that it was nearly nonexistent left me disappointed in its own right. But I just do not give a single flying fuck about the Frank/Claire drama. They were so much better when they were just indifferent (other than a few physical moments) towards each other as they were throughout a lot of S1.
I'll no doubt at least check out S3, but I'm guessing it's more or less a boredom killer for me now instead of the powerhouse that it was in S1/2. Shame. But I love Spacey enough to keep checking it out. I really hope it gets back on track with the deception, lies, intrigue and less of that ex-wife of his. Well, I shouldn't say that...I didn't like a lot of Claire's moments in S3, but I still like her enough as a character...but it's Frank and Claire together that really just makes me wanna shut the show off sometimes.
