I think "House of Cards" is one of the most exciting episodes I saw from the two seasons. Kyle's intelligence is very helpful in his quest for getting the ring from Ballantine. I was amazed when he calculated the time that Ballantine could reach the elevator so that Ballantine's hand will be pinned to the elevator and get the ring. However, Foss is in trouble and he risked his life so that Kyle could have the ring and open Baylin's secret. And in the last part, we saw a picture of Kyle (I think it must be Baylin) and Jessie (maybe Baylin's girlfriend). This episode also has lots of revelations.
Another striking part is that Lorie is doubting his father's faithfullness to her mother. Also, Jessie is now integrating to Emily's daughter Paige. Nicole has a clue for the relationship between Kyle and Jessie. I think there are more things to be revealed but one thing is not clear. Why is the episode entitled "House of cards"? I don't see the connection.
