God knows how House of Cards pulls it off, but in the process of creating one of fiction’s most despicable characters known to man, they somehow still managed to have audiences on board with whatever scheme he’s planning. The end of Season 2 saw Frank Underwood’s underhanded ascent to the presidency, and if the new trailer is any indication, being president isn’t good enough.

We’ve known from the beginning that Frank Underwood and his wife Claire wereambitious people, and that they were able to go to devious and destructive lengths to get what they wanted, but in this upcoming season, they look ready to throw the entirety of the  Constitution to create one nation, Underwood.

Take a look at the chilling trailer for Season 5 down below!

Indeed, in America, one of the first words that comes to mind is “freedom.” Nevermind whether or not that’s even remotely true, but it is a nation that prides itself on the freedom and democracy it offers its citizens. With this season, the implication seems to be that Frank is ready to strip those rights away in order to create a nation in his own image, pretty much ridding the country of its democracy.

Should Frank succeed, he could very well turn the United States into a military state not unlike that of North Korea. After all, like many evil dictators before him, he has little faith in humanity’s ability to guide itself without his supervision.
