House of Cards Season 2, Episode 9 Recap: Chapter 22

    Doug is my favorite character but I feel like something bad will happen with him before the end of the season. If, like you guys talked about, he has some sort of showdown with Seth, I can see any combination of him having to kill Rachel, killing himself or killing Seth. I feel like it would be a real loss if Doug doesn’t make it to the next season though.
