'House of Cards' Teaser Has Major Tension

It's still unclear whether last week's House of Cards season 3 leak was an actual technical glitch or a clever marketing tactic. Either way, if Netflix if trying to drive everyone insane from the tense buildup to House of Cards season 3, it's working. Following the leak of the entire new season on Netflix, the site quickly took it down, but not before fans proceeded to lose their minds in a manic speculative tornado. "A little bit of the story was let out," House of Cards showrunner Beau Willimon told The Hollywood Reporter, but added that despite the leak, "there are plenty of surprises ahead."

Now, Netflix has released a new season 3 teaser that only adds to the wild speculation of what's to come. The clip shows characters Frank Underwood and his wife Claire, played by Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright arranging themselves in front of a photographer for a presidential photo shoot. The tension between the two is so thick you could cut it into cubes and pair it with wine and assorted cheeses. The weirdness only escalates with Frank's eerily calm voiceover narration of the most awkward family photo of all time.

House of Cards season 3 premieres February 27th on Netflix.
