* Frank getting Cathy Durant back on his side after she begins to sow chaos at the Democratic convention. He has no ability to cajole Durant back to his side, as Durant has completely lost trust in him. He has nothing he can offer her. He has no leverage with which to force her. He only has one weapon in his arsenal: His sincere promise to completely and utterly destroy her if she crosses him. And through sheer intimidation alone, he succeeds.

* Freddy finally giving Frank the TheReasonYouSuckSpeech he's had coming for four seasons. It's quite something to see a person completely outside the politics game being able to lay into him like this with Frank helpless to threaten him with anything.

** It says something about Tom's efforts that this is the first crisis Underwood has faced that he cannot charm or manipulate or threaten into going his favor. The only strategy Frank has is to point out the lack of solid evidence in Tom's article. And even then, as Tom rebuffs, the corroboration of the Chief Whip and a ''former President'' is going to make a lot of people take a closer look at Frank's affairs.
* Remy Denton, Jackie Sharp, and Garrett Walker getting their revenge on Frank by going on record about how he manipulated and used them. Double points for Walker since he seems to be getting a measure of redemption in the eyes of the public, so he won't be going down in history with Richard Nixon.

* Tom Hammerschmidt single-handedly doing what no one else could: exposing Frank Underwood's crimes. Then, when confronted by Underwood at the White House, seeing right through his charms and calling him a liar to his face.
