During her campaign for the bill, a secret from her college days emerges: during a nationally televised interview, she admits that she was raped in college and that her rapist, Dalton McGinnis Peter Bradbury , is now a high-ranking general.
She had earlier had an uncomfortable encounter with McGinnis at a White House dinner, during which she had told Frank what the general had done to her.
She then converts the focus on that issue into political support that becomes critical to the Underwoods' ascension to the Oval Office.
Claire becomes increasingly ruthless as the season progresses. When Gillian Cole Sandrine Holt , a pregnant former employee, returns to demand health care as part of her severance, Claire says, "I am willing to let your child wither and die inside you, if that's what's required, Am I really the sort of enemy you want to make?
She shows remorse for her actions only once. When another of McGinnis' victims, Megan Hennessy Libby Woodbridge , comes forward, Claire uses her as the poster girl for the sexual assault bill, leaving the fragile young woman open to public scrutiny and reprisals from the bill's opponents.
Before she can testify about her ordeal before Congress, however, Megan suffers a breakdown and attempts suicide.
Upon realizing what she has caused Megan to go through, Claire bursts into tears. In the season finale, she urges Frank to humble himself before President Walker, with whom he has fallen out of favor, in order to complete the plan: "Cut out your heart and put it in his fucking hands.
Frank is now President of the United States, with Claire as the First Lady. According to Drew Grant of The New York Observer , Claire's season-long storyline was similar to the real life efforts of United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand 's to legislate an end to military sexual assault.
She remains an enigma even as she reveals more and more disturbing secrets from her past. In Season 3, Claire feels the need to be something more "significant" than the First Lady, and asks Frank to nominate her to a United Nations post.
He nominates her, but the Senate rejects her after a rocky hearing. During Frank's election campaign, Claire begins to question whether she still loves him.
In the season finale, she and Frank get into an ugly fight in which she says he is not enough for her; Frank replies that without him, she is nothing.
Season three ends with Claire leaving Frank as he prepares to go to the New Hampshire primary. After leaving Frank, Claire goes back to Texas, where she has a tense reunion with her mother, who is dying of lymphoma.
She sets her sights on running for a House of Representatives seat in Texas, with help from political consultant LeAnn Harvey Neve Campbell.
Frank persuades her to resume public appearances with him by promising to support her run. However, he sandbags her prospective candidacy by endorsing a political ally's daughter, in order to keep Claire focused on his campaign.
Claire retaliates on the day of the South Carolina primary by covertly leaking a photo of Frank's father with a Klansman , imperiling Frank's candidacy.
Frank figures out that she was behind the leak and confronts her. Claire calmly admits what she did and proposes that she join him in the ticket as his vice president.
Frank rejects the idea. Shortly thereafter, Frank is shot by Lucas Goodwin Sebastian Arcelus , in an assassination attempt, and falls into a coma.
While Frank is in surgery, Claire helps guide Frank's weak vice president Donald Blythe Reed Birney through a diplomatic crisis with Russia.
While Frank is receiving a liver transplant, she declines going to the hospital in favor of negotiating a treaty with Petrov, and strong-arms him into accepting the U.
When Frank recovers from surgery, he agrees to let Claire be his vice president. He and Claire advocate for a controversial gun control bill for the sole purpose of creating an atmosphere divisive enough to pick off the potential running mates.
In the ensuing open convention , they publicly endorse Secretary of State Catherine Durant Jayne Atkinson for the job, while working behind the scenes to undermine her and ensure that Claire wins enough delegates to be nominated.
Meanwhile, she reluctantly honors her mother's request to help her die. She and Frank then use the public sympathy from Elizabeth's death to win the nomination; they are now running mates.
When the terrorist group Islamic Caliphate Organization ICO takes an American family hostage, Claire negotiates with their imprisoned leader, Yusuf Al Ahmadi Farshad Farahat , who agrees to tell his followers to release the hostages.
Al Ahmadi reneges on the deal, however, and tells them to kill the hostages. At the same time, journalist Tom Hammerschmidt Boris McGiver publishes an investigative news story detailing Frank's crimes.
Claire gives Frank the idea to declare war on ICO and allow the public to see the hostage die in order to distract from the scandal and create an atmosphere of widespread fear that they can exploit.
In season 5, Claire's story begins as the opening scene of the season: shooting a propaganda commercial in order to stir up fear. Throughout the beginning, she helps make the campaign's focal point about the fear of ICO and how they can stop the threat.
On Election Day, Claire and Frank learn that they may lose because of low voter turnout. They exploit a possible terrorist threat to close down multiple polling centers in key states, such as Ohio.
This leads to numerous states filing lawsuits and refusing to honor the election results. Nine weeks later, with neither side winning the majority of electors, the House now Republican-controlled will decide the President and the Senate Democrat-controlled for the Vice President, the first instance of this happening for the President since the presidential election and the first time for the Vice President since the presidential election.
Claire eventually wins when Blythe issues a bill to block any filibuster in the Senate; while the House cannot reach a majority.
In the meantime, Claire is sworn in as Acting President of the United States and begins to exert her limited power by excluding Frank from certain presidential functions, such as the swearing-in of the new Justice of the Supreme Court.
During her short-lived presidency, a truck with nuclear energy goes missing and puts D. During the emergency, Claire is visited by diplomat Jane Davis Patricia Clarkson , who says that she can track down a leader of ICO for the Underwoods.
Claire is also faced with a series of diplomatic crises: Russian soldiers have taken over an American base, and the Russians and Chinese are vying for possession of a boat in Antarctica that has a stowaway American working for the Russians.
After making a deal with the Chinese, Claire orders for the boat to be destroyed so that neither the Chinese nor the Russians can get what is on board.
Around this time, Claire agrees to an open election in Ohio for not only the President, but also the Vice President, in order to avoid a possible Conway-Underwood administration.
Frank acquires a recording of Conway verbally abusing a pilot, as well as a recording of Conway's running mate, General Ted Brockhart Colm Feore , threatening to kill Frank, which Frank and Claire use to blackmail Conway's campaign manager Mark Usher Campbell Scott into helping them; they then release the tapes anyway.
Voters turn against Conway, and the Underwoods win the election. Soon afterward, Congressman Alex Romero James Martinez encourages Republicans in the House to start up the Declaration of War committee to investigate Frank, which puts Claire and Frank in damage control.
By this time, Claire and Yates have fallen in love, which complicates both their lives. During an unguarded moment, Claire tells Yates that Frank murdered Zoe Barnes and Congressman Peter Russo Corey Stoll.
She immediately regrets it, and tells Yates that they can't see each other anymore. In response, Yates threatens to publish a book detailing the Underwoods' crimes.
Claire invites him to Usher's home, and poisons him. He dies while having sex with Claire, and she has Usher get rid of the body.
Around this time, Claire and Frank convince Stamper to take the fall for Zoe Barnes' death. Frank also starts to become suspicious of Claire as she disappears for a period of time she had started talking to Davis in a secret corridor and starts to memorize her testimony defending herself but not Frank, in case she has to testify.
Walker publicly testifies against Frank, prompting him to appear before the committee and resign the presidency. When an incredulous Claire confronts him, Frank says that it was his plan all along to resign and set her up to be president, so that the two of them can run Washington together—she from the White House and he from the private sector.
For the plan to work, however, Claire must pardon Frank, which would damage her politically. Frank resigns and Claire is sworn in as the 47th President of the United States.
However, Claire does not announce that she is pardoning Frank in her first address to the nation as President.
Frank calls her repeatedly, but she forwards the calls. She sees that Frank has burned a hole into the American flag in the Oval Office, and breaks the fourth wall, saying: "My turn.
The sixth season begins four months later. Claire is President, with Usher as her Vice President. Frank has died of an apparent heart attack, but Claire suspects that he may have been murdered.
Throughout the season, she tries to disassociate herself from Frank, returning to her maiden name and calling him "my biggest regret".
She makes enemies of Bill Shepherd Greg Kinnear and his sister Annette Diane Lane , two political power brokers who oppose her agenda.
As she returns to the White House from giving a speech, an attempt is made on her life; a disgruntled ex-soldier shoots at her motorcade and commits suicide.
Claire also faces a threat in Stamper, who recants his confession and makes a deal with federal prosecutors to give them Claire as revenge for her turning her back on him and Frank.
She makes a shaky alliance with him, however, by promising to protect him in return for his help getting rid of Durant, who she fears will testify against her regarding her and Frank's crimes.
Days later, Claire pardons Stamper, and Durant apparently dies of an embolism ; it is later revealed, however, that she faked her death and fled the country.
Meanwhile, Claire grows suspicious of Usher, who is secretly working with the Shepherds. She fires her cabinet to neutralize his influence, and leaks information tying him and Bill Shepherd to laundering money for the Russian government; she also punishes Annette Shepherd by revealing to the press that Annette's son, Duncan Cody Fern , is in fact the biological child of one of her serving staff.
To clear the field of potential threats to her power, Claire has Durant, Davis and Hammerschmidt killed. When Stamper confronts her about what Frank left him in his will, Claire says that she is pregnant with Frank's child.
The Shepherds try to undermine her by developing a voting app that would essentially steal the upcoming midterm elections; Claire retaliates by having Duncan, who created the app, arrested for treason.
In the series finale, Claire arranges a meeting with Stamper, whom she correctly suspects has been hired by the Shepherds to kill her.
During a heated exchange, she gets him to confess that he poisoned Frank in order to stop him from killing her, in order to protect the Underwood "legacy".
Claire then stabs him and watches him die on the floor of the Oval Office, saying, "There, no more pain.

Walker tradisce Francis nella promessa di farlo Segretario di Stato , sulla quale gli Underwood avevano puntato tutto, si lascia coinvolgere nelle aspirazioni di vendetta del marito.
Durante il lavoro la donna ritrova Adam Galloway, un fotografo freelance di New York con cui da giovane aveva avuto una storia importante, salvo poi decidere di sposare la sicurezza economica di Frank: Claire rifiuta le avance di Adam, anche se lo sente spesso telefonicamente e intrattiene diverse conversazioni con lui.
La donna licenzia Gillian, ma quest'ultima le fa causa e minaccia di chiamare in tribunale tutte le persone che Claire ha mandato via prima di assumere lei.
Resta dubbio se si sia rivolta a un ginecologo per un interesse personale sincero o semplicemente per scoprire di quale medicinale fa uso Gillian, in modo da poterla ricattare.
Frank riesce a capovolgere la situazione e a manipolare Tusk, il quale convince Walker a nominare Underwood suo Vice. Adesso Francis J. Nel corso dei mesi, Claire aiuta il marito ad affrontare sfide con ambiziosi uomini d'affari, contro il governo cinese e il Congresso stesso, continuando a perseguire le loro aspirazioni politiche di coppia.
All'inizio del suo mandato, Underwood sta cercando di cancellare tutti i collegamenti con la morte di Russo gettando sotto a un treno Barnes, e facendo arrestare il suo amante Lucas Goodwin per cyberterrorismo.
Skorsky, terrorizzata, si tira indietro. Verso ottobre, Underwood deve fronteggiare le accuse del procuratore generale Heather Dunbar Elizabeth Marvel in merito a flussi di "denaro sporco" dalla Cina per sostenere il Partito Democratico e Walker.
Nel frattempo, il matrimonio degli Underwood sta vacillando. Underwood si rende conto che ha bisogno di Claire per vincere e la convince a tornare con la promessa di sostenere la sua candidatura per un distretto congressuale in Texas, campagna per la quale la donna si affida alla stratega LeAnn Harvey Neve Campbell.
Frank respinge con rabbia l'idea. Underwood viene ricoverato in ospedale per un intervento chirurgico immediato e cade in coma ma presto si scopre che ha bisogno di un trapianto di fegato.
Stamper riesce a collocarlo in cima alla lista dei trapianti salvandogli la vita e, una volta ripresosi, Frank accetta di lasciare che Claire si candidi come suo Vicepresidente.
Dunbar ha abbandonato la corsa a causa della pubblica scoperta di un incontro che lei aveva avuto con Goodwin pochi giorni prima dell'attentato alla vita del Presidente.
Frank, affidandosi contro il parere di Doug all'appaltatore NSA Aidan Macallan Damian Young , amico di LeAnn, consigliatogli proprio da lei, pianifica di utilizzare la NSA per ottenere illegalmente informazioni dagli elettori e per spiare il candidato repubblicano, Will Conway Joel Kinnaman.
Questo accade mentre Frank e Claire lottano insieme per una legge controversa sul controllo delle armi, al solo scopo di creare un'atmosfera abbastanza divisoria.
Quando un gruppo di americani, estremisti fedeli al gruppo terrorista Islamico Caliphate Organization ICO , rapisce una famiglia di periferia, Underwood permette a Conway di negoziare con loro, ma rendendo involontariamente il suo avversario un eroe agli occhi dei cittadini.
Poco dopo, inoltre, Underwood viene colpito da due crisi contemporaneamente: il leader di ICO ordina ai suoi seguaci di uccidere uno degli ostaggi, e il giornalista Tom Hammerschmidt, deciso a rendere giustizia a Barnes e Goodwin, espone i crimini di Underwood nel quotidiano Washington Herald.
Di fronte al disonore e a un possibile impeachment, Claire suggerisce a Frank di dichiarare guerra all'ICO e consentire al pubblico di vedere l'ostaggio morire, al fine di distrarlo dallo scandalo creando un'atmosfera di timore diffuso che lui e la moglie possono sfruttare nelle settimane prima dell'elezione.
Basta cercare di piacere agli americani: adesso si usi il terrore. Nel finale di stagione, Frank si rivolge come di consueto agli spettatori ma, per la prima volta, anche Claire rompe la quarta parete, guardando al pubblico assieme al marito ma rimanendo in silenzio, mentre lui dice: "noi non subiamo il terrore.
Noi creiamo il terrore". Nei giorni antecedenti alle elezioni, Underwood spinge il Congresso a dichiarare formalmente guerra all'ICO e ordina alla CIA di uccidere uno dei terroristi e far sembrare che sia morto durante la cattura.
Frank utilizza anche il timore di un possibile attacco terroristico per pressare i governatori del Tennessee e l' Ohio per fermare la votazione.
Frank tenta di convincere il deputato dell'Arizona Alex Romero a votare a suo favore, ma, quando Frank si rifiuta di aiutarlo, Romero forma un comitato per metterlo sotto accusa.
Gli Underwood, assieme al responsabile della campagna di Conway, Mark Usher Campbell Scott , scoprono come mettere fuori gioco il candidato repubblicano, grazie a una registrazione audio di Conway che inveisce verso un pilota e di un audio dove il suo compagno Ted Brockhart Colm Feore minaccia di uccidere Frank.Sie befreit sich. Doug Stamper wird von Claire mit Hilfe des Brieföffners erstochen, den er in der vorangegangenen Staffel Ghostbuster 2021 Francis erhalten hatte, nachdem er ihr den Mord Tvstern Francis und den Hintergrund seiner Absichten mitgeteilt hat. Daraufhin ernennt Francis ihn zum Nachfolger seines zuvorigen Stabschefs Remy Danton. Joe Cocker prefer Borgen — says Turnbull, the man who toppled a PM.
