'House of Cards' Season 2 premiere recap( Nerflix / February 17, 2014 )
As Chapter 14 begins, Doug confronts Frank as he and Claire return from a jog, telling him that Zoe and Janine are on to him. Frank promises to handle Zoe. Frank goes to the smoking nook to enjoy a cigarette, but finds the box empty. Claire admonishes him that with his birthday upcoming, Francis should take even better care of himself.
"And we can't have a vice president who smokes," she says. I get jokes, Claire. Meechum tells Doug that he's bought Frank some cuff links for his birthday. Doug does not approve.
Frank meets with Jackie Sharp, a California congresswoman, and his hand-picked would-be successor as majority whip. Jackie is a war veteran, and a popular incumbent, and someone that Frank thinks he can use. He offers her ammunition should she choose to seek his old position, and she seems receptive. Frank meets with the president and lays the groundwork for his plan.
"This is safe, Zoe. I'm not him," Lucas tells Zoe, after she emotionally shuts down during a sexual encounter. -- All recaps by Ethan Renner
