House Of Cards' New Season 2 Teaser Is Strangely Hypnotic

The new teaser for the second season of House of Cards offers almost nothing in terms of revealing what’s ahead for Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood, but if you listen hard enough (don’t bother raising the volume on your video player) you can almost hear the sound of scheming happening as Frank Underwood’s mind is likely building some kind of check-list to plot out his next few moves, whatever they may be. There may also be a metaphor in there about a rubber band being stretched to capacity. Or it just exists to hypnotize us as Underwood loses himself in his own thoughts.

We could even suggest that the rubber band is Underwood’s own version of a cigarette, which is what his wife Claire (Robin Wright) is holding in her own similarly hypnotic teaser:



Netflix did release an actual trailer for the second season, which features Spacey addressing the viewers and discussing his lack of patience for useless things…



Sitting at a desk, toying with a rubber band isn’t exactly a demonstration of Frank Underwood being a man of action, but anyone who’s seen the first season of the Netflix series knows that he doesn't act without some thought first, so in Underwood’s world, thinking is a big part of acting, which should be some cause for concern for his foes, given how much thinking he appears to be doing in the new teaser.

I’m still hoping we’ll see a new poster for Season 2 sometime soon. In the meantime, here’s the brief synopsis Netflix released previously for House of Cards Season 2:
Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has masterfully maneuvered his way into the Vice Presidency, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts...

Investigative reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) is inching closer to the truth about Frank and Peter Russo (Corey Stoll) and will stop at nothing to break the story.

And Frank's wife Claire (Robin Wright), the newly appointed Second Lady, must deal with the bright glare of the spotlight and how the intense scrutiny eats away at their once private existence.

Season two, exclusively on Netflix in all territories on February 14, 2014.

Let the butchery begin…
