“You want to know what takes real courage? Holding it all together when the stakes are this high.”

House of Cards‘ anti-hero Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) may have snaked his way to the highest office in the land, but that doesn’t mean the methods he used to get there won’t incur a little madness.

In tandem with Spacey’s Golden Globe award win on Sunday, Netflix released the trailer for the series’s third season.

The tense promo shows flashes of Frank in the wake of his scheme-filled rise to the top, including the continued strain in his marriage to Lady Macbeth-esque wife Claire (Robin Wright).

In the trailer’s most chilling exchange, Claire says to her husband: “We’re murderers, Francis.” Frank replies with extra acid: “We’re survivors.”

House of Cards‘ third season premieres Friday, Feb. 27, 2015, at 12:01 a.m. ET on Netflix.
