Netflix is giving fans exactly what they’ve wanted since they heard Kevin Spacey won’t return for the final season of House of Cards — an explanation.

In a newly released teaser, it takes mere seconds to confirm the fate many believed Francis Underwood would meet as Claire (Robin Wright) stands over his grave. The short teaser opens with Wright’s character standing in a landscape setting with trees standing guard as she begins to address her dead husband.

“I’ll tell you this though, Francis. When they bury me, it won’t be in my backyard, and when they pay their respects they’ll have to wait in line.”

As she utters the last part of the bold statement, Claire makes a classic House of Cards move by looking directly into the camera. The camera later pans out to offer viewers a glimpse of Frank’s final resting place.

The former President is laid to rest next to his father Calvin Underwood with his tombstone reading, “Francis J. Underwood, 1959-2017, 46th President of the United States.” Claire’s remarks could be construed as cold, but as fans of the show know, the Underwoods are a ruthless bunch.

Viewers had anticipated Frank’s end since the scandal surrounding Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct allegations resulted in his firing from the original Netflix series. While the cause behind Frank’s death has yet to be revealed the promise of his demise is sure to spawn some intrigue surrounding the upcoming season.
