The showrunner did not confirm the previous reports that Claire would be running against Frank during the election, but he did say that there will be a conflict between the two outside of their marriage.
Another interesting rumor about Season 4 of “House of Cards” is that Frank may get assassinated on the upcoming season.
While the speculation seems far-fetched considering that Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood is the fulcrum of the TV series where practically all plotlines revolve around, the speculation was based on the show’s UK counterpart.
In the UK version of the show, Frank’s counterpart, Francis Urquhart gets assassinated in order to save his reputation.
Critics believe that it would not be the case in Season 4 of “House of Cards” as the show gets its juice flowing from the relationship and now a conflict between Frank and Claire.
Willimon explained that Claire was very much in love with her husband at the start of the series. She may still be in love with Frank during the Season 3 finale. Accordingly, Claire’s rejection of Frank and their marriage has something to do with the fact that she feels that she is not a complete person while she is with Frank.
