Take a shot: ‘House of Cards’ finally returns

Updated: Feb. 26, 2015 at 12:25 p.m.

The post was written by Hatchet reporter Grace Gannon.

The year-long wait to catch up with the District’s twisted (fictional) power couple is finally over: Season 3 of “House of Cards” will stream on Netflix starting Feb. 27 at midnight… Pacific Time.

When the last episode of Season 2 ended, Frank Underwood became president after he manipulated Garrett Walker into resigning, Claire Underwood experienced a rare moment of guilt after her military sexual assault awareness campaign turned sour and Doug Stamper was lying in the woods with his head bashed in.

Season 3 will undoubtedly present plot twists, but some things never change in the nation’s capital. Play our “House of Cards” drinking game as you binge watch – just be careful not to spiral downward the same way our dearly departed Peter Russo did.

Drink if…

The Underwoods go on a midnight couples run.

Frank taps his prized class ring on the table.

Take a shot if…

There’s a motorcade (take another if the Vex is stuck behind it).

You make it back to bed with another snack before the absurdly long theme song ends.

Down your whole drink if…
