Wright described the ending to the Netflix series as "moving and generous and so macabre and so dark" last night during a Hollywood Reporter panel with co-star Michael Kelly. "The show is about the battle for position of power, all the way around. So, who wins?" she added. "And I will say that it’s so beautifully macabre. It’s really beautiful." Kelly added, "What she’s saying is it’s very House of Cards." To which Wright replied, "It’s so House of Cards. It’s going to shock the sh*t out of you, basically." Meanwhile, co-showrunner Melissa James Gibson said House of Cards won't play coy with Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood. "It would have been a big mistake to in any way pretend that the character didn’t exist or to erase the character somehow," she said of killing off his character. "Our way forward — the way we figured out the way forward — was basically to dig into the DNA of the show and honor the seeds of it and figure out what made sense as the next step."
