This episode marks the return of deceased characters Peter Russo and Zoe Barnes who were both killed by Frank in Season 1 and 2 respectively. Their appearance occured during a bout of hallucinations of Frank's. Frank follows what at first appears to be Claire in a dark crowded corridor of the West Wing, which also appears to be inside a train. But upon getting closer to her, Claire really turns out to be Zoe. He follows Zoe to the oval office where she proceeds to seduce him on the couch. They two grope each other when Peter gets their attention by doing Frank's signature knock on wood on the desk. While Frank tries desperately to escape from them, Peter sings while Zoe fondles and kisses all over Peter's body. Then both attack Frank violently and sexually. These hallucinations of the two are obviously Frank subconciously feeling somewhat guilty and haunted by their murders. Frank gets his liver transplant.
