All the Times House of Cards Characters Should Have Boned This Season

House of Cards asks its viewers a number of questions: What is the nature of power? What are the weaknesses of democracy? Is leadership inherently corrupt? Big questions, each of them. But the most persistent, important question the show asks, particularly in season three, is, “So … are these people going to bone?” Over and over again, characters exchange sexually charged glances, or inch closer to one another, or engage in other forms of intimacy, and we, the viewers, are left to wonder: Are these people ever going to kiss or what? Here, then, are 43 times this season when one could reasonably have asked such a question. (For these purposes, assume everyone’s sexuality is a fluid construct.)
