I just finished episode 9 and I can't tell where it is going. Without spoiling it, can anyone confirm if the ending gets bat-shit crazy or intense like previous seasons? I can't even guess what is going to happen. The only thing I can guess is that he's not going to get assassinated like in the UK show since that would have leaked by now.
I'd say episodes 10 and 11 are where the intensity really peaks; episodes 12 and 13 are still pretty fantastic, and they shake up the series in some big ways, but I wouldn't say they are crazy or intense.
I finished up today, and I have to say on the whole I'm fairly disappointed with the season. Just feels like it went no where. The 12th episode especially made me feel WTF. At least the last one seemed like it was going to ramp up, just to be a season ender, but really only had 1 somewhat satisfying section. HoC has kinda lost it for me. It hasn't gone full on Lost/BSG in shitting itself, it's just fallen asleep.
Seriously? I still have two episodes to go, but I think this is the best season yet. The fact that Frank has been on his heels all season, despite having more power than ever, has been very exciting to watch.
