The Hearing and Beyond
26 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is the turning point for Doug. Frank has expressed his disappointment in him because of his lack of effectiveness, and Frank gives him a third chance. Doug accepts his generosity and has a bit of an epiphany. Frank suspects he has been drinking but we know that his obsession has been with Rachel, who is moving farther and farther away from him. Meanwhile a hearing is going on where Frank must defend himself and the President. He is initially unable to answer some questions (he is a master at stonewalling) and manages to get things delayed as Senator Dunbar grills him. His advisers, Doug and the new guy dig through every bit of documentation they can get their hands on from the personal logs of Frank and the President. Included in this, of course, are going to be the visits to the marriage counselor/minister which won't help the chief executive's position. The other rape victim seems to gain confidence and is able now to tell her story, which helps Claire, even though Claire finds she is taking a boatload of drugs. The episode ends in one of those things that shows Frank and Claire aren't your everyday couple.
