During the convention, Frank pushes Catherine Durant forward as his running mate, but behind the scenes, he has different plans.
At the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, the party holds an open selection of Frank's running-mate. Durant takes an early lead, but LeAnn works with Celia Jones to leverage Texas' votes for Claire. The Underwoods then offer both Durant and Baker the position of Secretary of State if they throw their support behind Claire.
Conway goes on the air demanding an apology for Brockhart, and that he do something about the terrorist group ICO. Frank's response is to "kill them with kindness": he publicly apologizes to Brockhart, and asks to meet Conway privately to discuss action on ICO. The two meet in private and talk to each other, but not about ICO.
When convention voting resumes, Louisiana votes for Durant for President, and pushes to reconsider Frank as the official candidate. Conway reveals that he was contacted by Durant to coordinate the vote. Claire then leaves for Texas, taking Yates with her to work on her potential acceptance speech.
