We already had a sense of how dark the fourth season of House of Cards would be, but Netflix just released a trailer puts the exploits of Frank and Claire Underwood on full display. They’re both in unique positions of power, and with that power comes the balancing act of pulling off their Machiavellian moves while keeping a public face, especially in an election year.
The new season has the sort of corruption, violence, and sex that marked previous seasons, but the most dangerous matchup of all might between the President and the First Lady—and nothing is safe, not even Washington, D.C.
“You have no idea what it means to have nothing,” Frank said. “You don’t value what we have achieved. I have had to fight for everything my entire life.”
House of Cards returns on March 4.
