Doug House Of Cards

Doug was a nice character, but in my opinion in Season 3 it did not emerge clearly the duality of Doug’s world. On one side he lives in the normal world among real people, where he is drunk, perhaps to sink what he knows about how politics and the world of power work. But as Underwood’s assistant he is above normal people, he is the ruler, he makes the weather, he shapes the politics. This duality was badly managed by the authors, they pictured him as struggling to get back in power, basically as a beggar. His alliance with the enemy of Underwood was sold as an act of revenge more than an act of power. Revenge is for normal people, guys who have emotions. In the world of power revenge is counterproductive, emotions do not count… Therefore everything of Doug in Season 3 showed he cannot have power any more. This is why killing Rachel came out of nothing, it wasn’t clear which Doug killed Rachel, the ruthless power-Doug who was shutting the doors to the normal world to enter Underwoods world, or the beggar-Doug who had to kill just enter again the White House. There is a huge difference between them, the first is admirable to the public, the second is a normal dude with high aspirations. The public wants the power-Doug of Season 1, while the authors have messed the two personalities without clearly showing the metamorphosis between Doug personalities. For all we know, he felt bad for killing Rachel, which means he is not ready to get into the White House.

Doug House Of Cards

One of the biggest storylines in “House of Cards” Season 3 was Doug Stamper’s decision on how to handle Rachel. Quick recap : Rachel Posner (played by the superb Rachel Brosnahan) was a former call girl who Doug hired to seduce Peter Russo (Corey Stall) into drinking again, thus ruining his chance to become governor and eventually leading to his death at the hands of Frank Underwood. After Rachel escaped Doug’s grasp in Season 2 (by beating him over the head with a large rock), in Season 3 Doug tracked her down and killed her, after much thought to the contrary.

With a nighttime soap like “House of Cards,” where the juicy twists outweigh the real-world politics at play, the story has to keep moving forward. It can’t reboot characters. It can’t double back on itself. It can’t second-guess its decisions. In essence, it can’t do what Doug did in the story, even if Doug had to do what he did to be true to his character. Hopefully next year — whether you love or hate the character — “House of Cards” Season 4 will challenge Doug as much as the actor portraying him— not keep him driving in circles.

Doug continues to serve Frank as his Chief of Staff. Season 4 saw Doug struggling to keep things in control during both Frank and Claire’s separation and finding out of Seth’s betrayal that nearly results in Doug killing Seth. When Frank is shot, Doug offers his liver to the President but cannot donate due to his alcoholic history. After forcing a dying patient to die in order for a wounded Frank to be bumped in the donation list to get the liver, he begins to have spells of guilt. His guilt leads him to donating a large sum of money to his family and he begins seeing the deceased man’s wife.

Upon returning to the U.S., Doug travels to Santa Fe, New Mexico and begins to stalk Rachel. After purchasing a van, shovel and various chemicals (acetone and bleach to make chloroform), he kidnaps her and drives her to the middle of the desert. Doug initially shows compassion to Rachel, allowing her to leave when she claims she is starting a new life as Cassie Lockhart and has no desire to get involved uncovering Frank Underwood’s crimes. However, Doug quickly changes his mind. He turns the van around and runs Rachel over, killing her. He then proceeds to bury her body in the pre-dug grave in the New Mexico desert. He then returns to White House to officially serve as Frank’s Chief of Staff.

But at the same time, Frank knows that I’m more of a liability at this point. I’m not back. Even though Doug thinks he’s back and fine, he’s not, and it takes a while to get back to that. Maybe it’s the Doug in me, but I never blame Francis for what he does. Doug is great at his job, but he needs to be one hundred percent to be great at it—and nothing less.

I’ve never heard that either! I think Doug’s dedication to Francis—and what you see that as—I think is more of a byproduct of his dedication to his job. That’s what moves Doug forward. He thinks, “I’m going to do my job, and I’m going to do it better than anyone could.” But if not homoeroticism, there is a paternal aspect to their relationship. There’s that great scene this season where Doug enters the Oval Office and puts his head on Frank’s lap.

Whether viewers do hate Doug is just as big of a question as whether or not they should hate Doug, and it all comes back to the time he took to make the decision. Ignoring how long he had at home before tracking Rachel down in Arizona, Doug still had to sit with her on an excruciatingly long car ride, listening to her plead for her life from the back seat. Then, he let her go, before doubling back in a heartbreaking twist.

However, many other players have their own stories to tell – and while some have sat under the foot of power that is controlled by the Underwoods, few have been more comfortable than Frank’s fiercely loyal Chief of Staff, Doug Stamper. Portrayed with searing intensity by Michael Kelly, Doug began this series shrouded in mystery, but his character has slowly opened up over the course of four seasons. With a fifth season on the way, Kelly has now revealed some insight into Doug’s mind.

This Emmys season, Kelly is getting an even bigger push than normal from Netflix, which is both understandable and possibly ill-timed. Voters may have noticed Kelly’s expanded arc in Season 3 and how effectively he played each stage of Doug’s physical recovery, mental relapse and return to form. Or they may only remember not liking Doug by the end of Season 3 — “House of Cards’” worst season by comparison — and that alone may influence whether or not they cast a vote in favor of the actor playing him.

With the aid of his brother Gary Stamper, Doug returns to sobriety, and convinces Frank Underwood to give him the position of White House Chief of Staff after Remy Danton resigns. He proves his loyalty to Underwood by burning a page from the doctors journal he promised Dunbar, as it contained details of the secret abortion Claire Underwood had. Doug reveals Dunbar had been willing to pay him $2,000,000 for the journal.

That is the moment though where we’re thrust back into reality and realize, “OK, this is not a good person.” Because throughout this season, aside from casually surveilling her and almost killing a guy in Venezuela, Doug’s a pretty stand-up guy. He’s the most decent character on the show. And then that final scene happens where he’s burying Rachel and we think, “OK, he’s back.” This is about Doug’s descent back to his true self.
