Will Frank Underwood die at the very first episode of “House of Cards” season 5? The newly-gathered “House of Cards” season 5 spoilers hinted that right at first episode, fans will be seeing Underwood’s funeral. Morever, his death will set the tone for the fifth season of Netflix political drama series.


As speculated by Reddit user Santidreet, the death of Underwood (Kevin Spacey) will have a significant effect on the series. “My immediate prediction would be that the first episode of season 5 will be Frank’s funeral,” the said user claimed. He explained, “Multiple times in the last couple of episodes they mention his liver possibly rejecting and he gasps in pain numerous times.”

The user’s speculations however were rejected by some.  “I agree that Claire will probably now break the fourth wall but I don’t think they’ll kill off Frank so early,” Stargazer1080 commented. “We still have the fun of the election to go.”

Meanwhile, Ma5bergey wrote, “Frank’s death would have to be at the end of the story. He goes in Chapter 65 if he does at all,” to which Santidreet responded by saying, “I don’t agree. I think there have been a lot of hints towards Claire becoming the main character.” With Spacey being the lead star, it seems impossible that he would get killed off at the beginning of the show, some users said as well.

In the meantime, following some considerations with how the UK version went on, Pdchessvamp stated that Frank would actually bid farewell during the last episode of the upcoming season. This will allow his wife, Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) to take over.

At the finale of the multi-awarded American series’ fourth season, the couple’s relationship was observed to have gotten stronger than ever because of a hostage crisis, Den of Geek reported.
