House of Cards Threesome With Frank, Claire, and Meechum

And Now, That Other House of Cards Scene That Everyone's Talking About

Things go from intense to just plain weird in episode 11 of House of Cards season two. If you haven't gotten to that episode just yet and don't want to be spoiled, then turn back now, because this one is a real doozy. If you thought the Zoe scene from the first episode was shocking, then you haven't seen anything yet.

Claire (Robin Wright) and Frank (Kevin Spacey) have a threesome with their loyal Secret Service agent, Edward Meechum (Nathan Darrow), during a wine-filled night at home. The love scene is a surprising one, because not only do Frank and Meechum kiss (we already knew that Frank was bisexual), but also because it looks, on the surface, like a moment of recklessness on the Underwoods' part. How could a couple who carefully calculate every single move not realize that having a threesome with their security detail could potentially hurt them down the road — especially when you consider that Claire just got through her adultery scandal? Then again, the threesome — or "threechum" — may be a way for them to bring Meechum into their inner circle and gain his undying trust now that they all share a career-ruining secret.

Do you think the Underwoods' threesome was a calculated move or just a moment of passion for them to enjoy? Vote in our poll below.

Did someone else notice the Vampire motif throughout that whole scene? It was as if Meechum went through an initiation process. Claire may or may not have broken the glass intentionally and may or may not have cut Meechum on purpose. The threesome was a metaphor alluding to a Vampire initiation where a Vampire bites and draws blood. Maybe Meechum is now fills the void of the Underwood's roles as parents. He's at a proper age too. This would satisfy the unusually lengthy shots of Claire and her quite satisfaction of Meechum. Meechum may or may not be a huge metaphor for Claire's aborted babies. I've wondered what Meechum contributes to the series. The irony is, the Underwood's have taken on the role of caregivers while Meechum is still assigned as their bodyguard. I knew there was something odd when the Underwood's kept praising his security detail and I've concluded that this was just another way vetting him into the Underwood family. They slowly coaxed him to let down his guard and be comfortable. Keep in mind all the scenes where Meechum was coerced into break the rules. In every scene Meechum went further and further than the previous. Maybe I'm crazy, but the Vampire theme seems to explain some of the odd scenes that sort of broke the flow of the season.

Definitely calculated. You just have to look back at the scene when Meechum comes in while Frank is watching a threeway on his laptop. He brazenly makes sure Meechum sees it. He was giving Meechum a clue.

Of all the people they could have gotten romantic with, I think they chose Meechum for a reason. However, I don't think it was because of a malicious plan they have for him -- I think they just know his dedication to them, his job, and his country runs deep. He's the safest bet to keep his mouth shut.
