House of Cards

House of Cards star explains season 5 'clusterf---' in bathtub

The actor is here to help you separate political fiction from reality in a new video

Posted on

The fifth season of House of Cards, which EW critic Jeff Jensen calls “wicked fun” and says resonates “because our world has bent toward the show’s fiction,” debuted a week ago on Netflix.

If you haven’t finished watching all 13 episodes yet, have no fear. Netflix released a YouTube video Wednesday explaining all the slitherings-about of the Underwood First Family. Actor Michael Kelly, who plays the ultra-loyal chief of staff and occasional murderer Doug Stamper, summarizes the whole season between interludes of champagne waterboarding. Kelly details the plot with the same sinister attitude and political mastery as his character, all from the comfort of a bubble bath.

Watch the summary above, and check out season 5 of House of Cards, available now on Netflix.
