Backstory[ edit ] The Portal series is linked to the Half-Life series. The events in Portal take place between the first and second Half-Life games,  while most of Portal 2 is set "a long time after" the events in Portal and Half-Life 2. At the end of the first game the protagonist Chell destroys GLaDOS and momentarily escapes the facility, but is dragged back inside by an unseen figure later identified by writer Erik Wolpaw as the "Party Escort Bot".
Robin Wright as Claire Underwood. Specifically put, how did Francis Underwood die, after the man who played him, Kevin Spacey, killed his career? The character he left behind also is unseen in any form during the first five hours of this final and shorter eight-episode season, which begins streaming in its entirety on Friday, Nov.
Francis Underwood otherwise is very much heard of.
Not only from steely Claire Underwood Robin Wright but by a steady stream of loyalists, enemies and grovelers. All of this is tied to the overriding mystery of whether Francis in fact died peacefully ha!
And they want Claire to either be their puppet or be impeached to pave the way for toady vice president Mark Usher Campbell Scott. House of Cards also brandishes and embraces the MeToo movement, but in ways that might be seen as counter-productive.
Claire is a feminist strictly on her own terms, with a long-acquired taste for the jugular. Perhaps a certain real-life sitting President would relish having someone like her as a running mate.
Except that Claire would be calling the shots. Emulating her late husband and de facto mentor, Claire also has taken to talking to the camera. During the re-juiced Episode 5, her seemingly darkest hours as President are no cause for worry.
Even so, House of Cards also can be a victim of its own excesses, which are now built up into a heavy goo of previous evil and investigations of same by the sometimes ridiculously dogged Tom Hammerschmidt Boris McGiver. House of Cards devotees certainly will remember that then shocking scene.
Since then, what really shocks anymore? The betrayals, bed-hoppings, fatalities and misdirections have piled up to the point where basically no one has clean hands. In her particular case, Claire has long believed what she tells the camera in Episode 4: You have to choose: That was very clear from the beginning.
In the end, who will end up atop the Iron Throne? But this one seems no less bloody. B-minus Email comments or questions to: They and the other young passengers were all unarmed. But officer Roy Oliver nonetheless fired away impulsively, ending a life that had barely gotten started.
He was ultimately convicted or murder and is appealing his prison sentence. But when gunfire unrelated to the gathering broke out, Oliver eventually began shooting first before claiming that he and his partner that night, Tyler Gross, were in danger of being struck by the car Vidal was driving.
Representatives of the Balch Springs police department declined to be interviewed by Scott, and the attorney representing the town, Joe Tooley, would have been wiser to also stay off camera.Whenever you're asked to decide whether something is good or bad--and then explain why on paper--you're being asked to write a *review* or *evaluation*.
