House of Cards Season 4: The Return of Lucas Goodwin

By on

 

Viewers were probably a bit shocked after the fourth season of House of Cards unexpectedly began not with the Underwood couple or our favorite secret service member, Meechem. Instead, Lucas Goodwin (Sebastian Arcelus), a former journalist, sitting in prison while conversing with another inmate about getting off, opened the episode.

?

If anyone recalls, Goodwin first appeared in Season 1, donned up with suit and tie, as a political editor of The Washington Herald and a co-worker of Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara). However, his last appearance was being thrown in jail for cyberterrorism, as he was attempting to take down the country?s president, The Bustle reports.

?

While basically being missing in action in the last three seasons, his comeback together with Barnes and Peter Russo is not only the show?s best well-kept secret but also an ultimate twist of Underwood?s plans.

?

?I?ve been told to keep mum and I stayed mum,? Arcelus told The Hollywood Reporter. ?I?ll be honest, even the very, very small handful of folks that knew that I had gone back there to work was in my family and they didn?t even want me to tell them what happened!?

?

But anyways, the question now is how did Lucas manage to get out from behind bars and what are the possible consequences of his action? The answer is pretty interesting.

?

Lucas appeared to be so desperate in jail, even reading erotic literature to his inmates. However, Lucas was cleverly able to attain his freedom back by using his skills in journalism. Yes, he managed to extract the truth from his cellmate.

?

As Lucas was talking to his cellmate Gagik of what initially seems to be a harmless talk, someone apparently has been listening in. And while he continually converses with Gagik, Lucas learned of a large syndicate group that has a power way beyond House of Cards fans have ever witnessed.

?

Gagik made mention of an Armenian Power in Los Angeles that literally skins you alive. Nevertheless, we really don?t know whether Goodwin?s Armenian Power information, which he could have probably relayed to authorities handling the Armenian case, was the key to get him out of jail.

?

Anyhow, the thought of the Armenian Power skinning him alive while looking at the mirror may be the last thing he?ll keep in his mind as he starts plotting his revenge versus Underwood.
