This year has been a pretty bad year for Hollywood, as the fire has been lit and continues to burn every man that has done wrong by any person. It’s about time that some people were brought down from their high reign of power and shown that just because you have money and power, doesn’t mean you can take advantage of someone against their will and force them to perform sexual acts of any kind.
One person who learned the hard way was Kevin Spacey. In only October, Spacey was accused of taking advantage of actor Anthony Rapp when he was 26-years-old and Rapp was 14-years old. In light of these accusations, Spacey decided to “come out of the closet,” although, many had known his identity for years. People were outraged, disappointed and angry that Spacey took this situation and time to reveal his sexual orientation. Spacey was in the middle of filming season six of his Netflix original series “House of Cards,” and Netflix decided to completely stop filming – and, fans were extremely disappointed, thinking this was the end of the show for good.
But, on Monday, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos announced that they will continue to film season six without Kevin Spacey.
During UBS’s Global Media and Communications Conference in New York, Sarandos announced he was “excited” to get to an agreement, bring closure to fans and also keep the 370 crew members and 2,000 Baltimore residents who work on the show employed.
Season six will star Robin Wright entirely, focusing on Mrs. Underwood, rather than Frank at all. And, as a HOC fan – about damn time. Everyone knows Claire Underwood is the backbone of that show, marriage, and political agenda. I have been waiting (not so patiently) for Robin to get hers, and I’m so f*cking glad that Netflix has decided to continue to film while allowing her to lead. Fans have taken to Twitter to share in their excitement, too.

Robin Wright has been the lead in House of Cards all along if you ask me. pic.twitter.com/kTwsNwuPwK

Dear @netflix: It would be very cathartic to see an episode of House of Cards's final season in which Claire Underwood savagely eviscerates a senator who preyed on teenage girls

It’s confirmed that Season 6 of House of Cards will star Robin Wright and that Kevin Spacey has been written out and I’m SO HAPPY

Take notice Corporate America and @realDonaldTrump. There is a very simple formula to ending all of this sexual assault: WHEN MEN FUCK UP, PUT WOMEN IN CHARGE!

Can we get an epic death scene for Frank, though? I've been rooting for that character's death since, like, episode two. https://t.co/DstZifJkNJ

I hope in this last season Frank Underwood is just gone and no one ever mentions it https://t.co/UxJiZKJ5Sz

House of Cards killing off Frank and focusing on Claire is an absolutely flawless metaphor for the ideal outcome of men being outed as predators. She was always superior by every measure, and now we can stop paying attention to him entirely.
