Rachel House Of Cards

Rachel is absent most of Season 3, appearing only in flashbacks and photos as Doug, still infuriated that she attacked and left him for dead, goes out of his way to find her. Doug enlists the help of Gavin Orsay, a highly skilled computer hacker, to search for Rachel. Gavin initially leads Doug to believe that Rachel was murdered and presents Doug with falsified documents in order to pass Rachel’s alleged murder as authentic. Later, wanting his friend freed of the FBI’s grasp and having fled himself, Gavin tells Doug that Rachel is in fact still alive and that he has found her but the only way he will give Doug her location is if he clears his friend of the charges against him. Doug eventually finds and attacks Gavin and obtains Rachel’s whereabouts, traveling to New Mexico and stalking her before kidnapping her.

Despite Stamper’s efforts, Rachel develops a friendship with a woman she meets on a city bus named Lisa Williams. She also begins attending Lisa’s church, the Fellowship. Lisa moves out of her home when her roommate starts smoking meth and she moves in with Rachel. They start having an intimate relationship when they discover they trust and care deeply for each other. Stamper finds out about the relationship and orders Rachel to end it, because he wants to be the only person Rachel needs. She breaks up with Lisa for her safety. He then gets her from bed in the middle of the night and drives her out to nowhere, not saying anything. She jumps out of the car and runs into the woods. Doug follows and Rachel ambushes him and beats him unconscious with a rock, then steals Doug’s car.

Back in Season 1 of HoC, Doug Stamper pays Rachel Posner as a call girl to be with Rep. Peter Russo on several occasions. This ultimately ruined his chances of accomplishing anything in Congress and provides a means by which gets Russo out of the way and provide a hole with which to place the Vice President after Russo’s death. Rachel is aware of her connection to this or at a very minimum, President Underwood believes she can figure it out. She was being paid by Doug to be the directed call girl just before Russo commits suicide (well, we know that Underwood kills Russo, but the press believes it was suicide). This is a connection which the President does not want revealed. During Season 2, Doug is supposed to take care of the situation, but instead begins falling in love with Rachel. He puts her up in an apartment and pays her meager bills. In the mean time she falls in love with a woman. When Doug figures this out, he goes to move her to a new location. The last episode of Season 2 shows Rachel jumping out of the car, Doug following, then Rachel nearly beating him to death with a rock.

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.

It took a while, but finally Doug killed Rachel Posner on House of Cards in the season three finale. Is it just me, or was this season of Netflix’s House of Cards pretty tame? I suppose that’s the leash that comes with being the leader of the free world. The ambitious writers got away with their out-of-line remarks. The political opponents are all still breathing. This was not the only death, but it was the only murder, and it was a slow burn. Doug started off the season still recovering from Rachel’s attack. He then spent most of the thirteen episodes crouched in diners with hacker Gavin Orsay trying to locate Rachel, only to exact his master plan in the final episode.

Dougs character is established in season 1 as being well in control of his habbit. This is demonstrated through the rehabilitation of Peter Russo in which he was in touch with the ability to pin down addictions. When Rachel Posner was introduced, it created a whole different battlefield by which Stamper would fight a new addiction. Rachel. He was beyond infatuation to a level of obsession, which took control of him like his alcaholism. However alcohol never let him down, but Rachel did. She fell in love with another women putting Stamper in a state of selfish addiction where he would not have her leave him. The relationship dynamic was so over powered that Rachel felt the suppression of her freedom with only one way out. To kill stamper. After her attempt she seeks to dissappear to forget everything. However when doug is ready to kill his addiction he takes it to the most literal form. He cant kill her softly like his alcholism. He has to hit the habit and hit it hard. He does that by running her over. Finally, he buries her as a symbol that he was burying her memory and the addiction she represented.

Doug was obsessed with her. He couldn’t handle the fact the feelings weren’t mutual. He was jealous, controlling and a stalker. He wasn’t visiting her because he was being told to by Frank Underwood. He was visiting her because of his obsession with her. When he goes to her apartment, when she isn’t there and smells her bedding. Rachel reading to him because he loved the sound of her voice. He has an addictive personality. He is OCD with everything he gets involved with. Frank, job, Rachel and alcohol. Doug is addicted to Rachel like Alcohol. He knows he will be constantly obsessed with her while she is alive. So he murders poor Rachel.

I think that other commenters are correct in that killing Rachel would prove Doug’s commitment to “doing whatever it takes” to please Frank, especially in light of the fact that he had talked to Heather Dunbar about Claire’s journal, something that he could have been permanently ousted for. Doug is an extremely obsessive man: he is obsessive about working for Frank, he is obsessive about alcohol, and he was obsessive about Rachel. I think he realized he would never get over this woman, and that he could never have her. Witness his pathetic attempt to destroy his computer so he wouldn’t keep watching the video, or checking emails. Rachel was a key link to the Russo murder, but Frank had become president without her information becoming a threat. My guess is the murder was an attempt to win over Frank and an attempt to end a painful obsession I think Rachel was important because she was the closest thing to an innocent person in the entire story. It always broke my heart that she would buy little houseplants to decorate whatever grimy apartment she had been forced in to. It seemed like a tiny glimmer of hope hadn’t been destroyed in her. She just wanted to get away and have a dog, quiet and trees. She’s another fatality wrung up by the Underwoods (in their very sterile interiors) in their quest for power.

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.
