Is this real life?! House of Cards' third season, which was set to hit Netflix February 27, leaked early today and the whole Internet basically lost its mind.

You can't just tease us like that:
Netflix accidentally drops House of Cards season 3, then quickly takes it down. What a cruel, cruel tease.— Scott Sanford (@ScottSanford67) February 11, 2015
By the way, you might want to avoid Twitter because WARNING: SOME MAJOR SPOILERS WERE REVEALED:
The last episode of House of Cards will be about Frank dealing with Petrov one-on-one. pic.twitter.com/5iaK8aO2s1— Hunter Schwarz (@hunterschwarz) February 11, 2015
Some more credible than others:

Then this parody account went and won the whole thing:
Did you really think I'd give everything away? Did you really. Good things come to those who wait. Good things and trains. #HouseOfCards— Francis J. Underwood (@RepUnderwoodSC) February 11, 2015
And now, the wait continues....
