We don’t know how he dies, or under what circumstances (although, hit by a subway train would be fitting), but when House of Cards returns for its final season (without Kevin Spacey), former President Frank Underwood will be dead.
How do we know? Because in the new sixth season teaser for House of Cards, President Claire Underwood is paying her respects to Frank’s headstone in a very Claire Underwood sort of way:
“I’ll tell you this though, Francis. When they bury me, it won’t be in my backyard. And when they pay their respects, they’ll have to wait in line.”
I hope that Claire — played by Robin Wright — spits on his grave in the next scene.
House of Cards returns on November 2nd.
