Season 3 of House of Cards made a surprise early debut on Netflix Wednesday, before disappearing again just as suddenly.

Netflix had announced that the political drama would premiere Feb. 27 on its site, but the first 10 episodes (of 13) appeared on the site Wednesday afternoon — over two weeks early.
