Frank wants to act against terrorism as a response to Conway's public display of power. Tom helps Claire with her campaign.


After experiencing pain on Air Force One, Frank is told he can only fly once per week during his recovery. They decide that Claire will continue on the campaign trail without him. She and Yates work on her speeches, and they resume their affair. Yates leaves the campaign, and Frank confronts him. Frank later tells Claire she should take Yates back on the campaign with her.

Frank wants to go after ICO even harder, and instructs Durant and Stamper to coordinate the involvement of Russian troops, but their efforts are blocked by Conway. Frank then decides to move forward with a ground operation using U.S. troops.

Stamper receives a voicemail from Laura, Tony Moretti's widow, whom he donated to. He returns the call, and later meets with her at restaurant.

Remy meets Hammerschmidt where Freddy's Ribs used to be. Remy confirms little at first, but later they play a game of "Never Have I Ever" and Remy indirectly confirms Frank's crimes. Hammerschmidt returns to the Washington Herald to continue his work.
