House of Cards Season 6 Netflix – Review

The last season of House of Cards (watch here) finally wins the screens of the world after a whole year of turbulence. Last year’s move against sexual abuse in the film industry knocked down the star of the show.

Kevin Spacey was dismissed from production when it was starting its filming, which brought a necessity for the series to be rethought. The solution was simple: kill the character.

And as a kind of symbolism, the protagonism was passed to his wife, who was a supporting character of weight in the previous five seasons, but that until then had not had moments of her own brilliance. With the departure of Spacey, Robin Wright – a very talented actress – took the lead, and now we realize that this was the best solution: House of Cards wins a dignified and impressive ending, anchored in her dense and gloomy performance.

A queen of a kind

The sixth season of House of Cards begins with the announcement of the death of Frank Underwood, the great manipulator who managed to conquer the White House. With this, the president is his vice president, his wife Claire. And she, as we all know, is as nefarious as he is – and now she has to deal with political machinations herself to keep her in the highest position in the United States.

Claire, therefore, becomes a queen of a kind. Her power is immense and she has the cold blood necessary to maintain the same respect that Frank possessed. However, in order to keep respectability and power concentrated in her hands, she must face some political dangers that come from a powerful family that donates to her presidential campaign. Thus, the eight episodes that conclude the saga of House of Cards show that, even in politics, the maxim “what goes around, comes around” is true. At the same time that Claire succeeds in being as dirty, irresponsible and manipulative as her dead husband, she begins to receive back all the bravado and collusions they themselves made in order to reach the maximum American power.

And much of it is based on the talent of Robin Wright. The actress, who was one of the strenghts of House of Cards from the beginning, was overshadowed by the omnipresence of Kevin Spacey, who was also one of the producers of the series. He being the main link, she was relegated to the background. With the departure of Spacey, she finally finds her place to shine – which had been drawn since the last episodes of the fourth season, at least. Claire Underwood is as evil as her predecessor in the chair of President while finding new ways to persuade her team and the American people to keep up appearances, even if it costs the democracy so entrenched in the country.

A worthy ending

Many people doubted that House of Cards would have a decent ending with all the confusion surrounding its main star. Fortunately, the scriptwriter and the production team managed to find an honorable exit for the story, which was shocking enough to make this production continue to be one of the biggest highlights of Netflix even after it has been closed. Its conclusion is astounding, very well written and directed, and only enhances the product as a whole.

The end of House of Cards concludes a chapter in the history of Netflix itself. It was with this series that the platform began to produce its own content and revolutionized the way we think and conduct the audiovisual in our time. With this superb conclusion, anchored in the talents of sensational actors and actresses, we follow the end of a historical period for the production of series and films. And it could not be a better closure.

At the end of the day, as expected, we witnessed the rise and fall of a woman engulfed by addiction to power. As it is said in the popular saying, “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.
