"Let the butchery begin!" The Golden Globe nominated, critically-acclaimed Netflix original series House of Cards is back with a new season 2 trailer that will make the first season seem quite conservative.
"There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that's only suffering," says the ominous voice of the show's powerhouse star Kevin Spacey as the duplicitous politician Francis Underwood. "I have no patience for useless things."

With that brilliant summation of Underwood's entire character, the moody trailer sets off on a spiraling journey, leading down a path of lies, backstabbing, sex and murder.
For those not familiar with the show, season 1 of House of Cards followed Congressman Underwood (Spacey) as he worked with his equally conniving wife Claire (Robin Wright) to exact revenge on the people who betrayed him.

All episodes of season 2 will be available on Netflix beginning February 14, 2014, while the first season is currently streaming.
