This song plays when Lucas meets with Gavin in the diner.
After an erotic openining scene, Frank holds back channel trade negotiations with Xander Feng (Terry Chen), a wealthy businessman connected to both Tusk and the Chinese government, in the shadows of a Civil War reenactment. In so doing he drives a wedge between Tusk and the President and develops a bond with a reenactor playing an unknown Underwood ancestor. Lucas goes to the extreme to seek justice, but in doing so he walks right into the trap the FBI had set for him on Doug's behalf. Before, Gavin wanted to offer him a way out but was threatened therefore by the FBI. Team Underwood expands under dark circumstances: Seth Grayson (Derek Cecil) uncovered evidence that Claire had an abortion which was not due to her being raped by the general and now extorts Claire to hire him and get rid of Connor Ellis. Claire, with support from First Lady Patricia Walker (Joanna Going), advocates with military officials for sexual assault victims.
