Jeff Beal beautifully captures Robin Wright’s stunning performance

Though the series final was not the original vision of the writers and creators, it still provides us with a stunning glimpse into Claire Underwood’s turn and her attempt to finally free herself from her suffocating husband’s memory. Jeff Beal provides a haunting and yet almost fluttery new theme for the First Lady, reminiscent of the trapped bird inside the White House. His new themes are exciting, captivating, and exhilarating befitting of the first female president, particularly in “A New America.” With the echos of past themes, such as the return of “Making History” and “Stamper’s Grief,” Jeff Beal captures the heart of this series and everything that drew us in to Frank and Claire’s relationship. Season 5 introduced possibly my most favorite theme in the haunting “Dial Up the Terror” and was pleased to hear it play against the final moments of the entire series in Doug’s death. Although how much more powerful would that had been if it had been Frank’s death? But I digress. The final piece, “Claire’s Monument” provides a brilliant twist on the opening theme and solidifies Claire’s triumph over Francis, but leaves room to question at what cost?

Music was always amazing despite the show

Jeff Beal never failed to deliver and he deserved a better last season to compose for. Otherwise this is a bittersweet ending nevertheless.
