Check out this trio of new promos for “House of Cards” Season 2 that Netflix just released.

Above, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) intones, “For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy.” It also has us wondering if Zoe (Kate Mara) is very long for the world, as police are shown both at Janine’s (Constance Zimmer) doorstep and in an office with Lucas (Sebastian Arcelus) — and Lucas is distraught. Hmm.

Below, the top trailer focuses on Frank’s marriage to Claire (Robin Wright) — “This could all backfire. You’ve made a powerful enemy.” — and below that, Frank says that being “just shy of treason” is “politics.” Indeed.

“House of Cards” Season 2 premieres Friday, Feb. 14 on Netflix.
