House of Cards Romantically Fucked Up

  • Netflix

What Happened: Claire’s having an affair with photographer Adam Galloway.

Why It Was Fucked Up & Romantic: The affair itself is not the issue. It’s the fact that it’s been going on for so long—more than a decade, in fact— that took us aback. Adam is so sprung that he is basically at Claire’s beck and call and she seems to enjoy dangling herself in front of the poor man. Occasionally, Claire will give in to her attraction to Adam and fantasize about the life they could have had, but she never fully commits to it. She always goes back to Frank.
