Kate Mara as Washington Post journalist Zoe Barnes really is taking her life into her own hands by investigating Former British Prime Minister Frances Urquhart aka Congressman Frank Underwood. British newspaper journalist Mattie Storin and British Pollster Sarah Harding tried to bring down his corrupt political career only to be murdered in a premeditated act of murder one that never resulted in an arrest or a courtroom trial. It's tempting to say that the British mini series, House of Cards, the British mini-series To Play the King and the British mini-series The Final Cut is a parody of the political conservative extremism Nazi Party politics (British Prime Minister Frances Urquhart was a conservative politician), however, Congressman Frank Underwood being a Democrat prevents the the United States of America reboot television series House of Cards from being a parody of Conservative extremism Ku Klux Klan politics parody. Still, with Mattie Storin dead after falling off the roof of a skyscraper and Sarah Harding dead from a car bomb, Kate Mara as Washington Post journalist Zoe Barnes better hire a body guard because there are deadly assisins ready to take her down before she can destroy the political career of evil politician sworn arch enemy Francis Urquhart aka Frank Underwood (Originally played by Ian Richardson, but now played by Kevin Spacey).
Or to quote Frances Urquhart aka Frank Underwood's classic iconic catchphrase, "You might very well think that; I couldn't possibly comment."
