by Gingersnap | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | June 12, 2019
Welcome back to our ‘Billions MVP Fanbook,’ a compilation post commemorating all those in honor of achievement for the utmost brazen, uber shameless, ultra scheming, unmatched bad asses to date – from sports references, music, and tasty food to pop culture remarks, shocking twists and ultimate paybacks.
In case you missed our previous awards, you can catch up with season four episode one, episode two, episode three, episode four, episode five, episode six, episode seven ,and episode eight, episode nine, episode ten and episode eleven. Now, let us continue with that tradition as we award our Most Valuable Players (MVPs) this week.
Here are our Billions awards for Season 4, Episode 12, “Extreme Sandbox.”
Best Lines – Both by Rebecca.
“Oracular wisdom feels better when the Oracle hasn’t just anally rended you” to Bensinger and “You snake motherfucker” to Axe during Saler’s board meeting.
Top Analogy – Axe when he makes the logical argument comparing Taylor to that of Silence of the Lambs victim. They’re in the well, they’ve put the lotion on from the basket and they just need to be skinned.
Supreme Pop Culture Reference – The Shining
Those creepy twins while he is riding his Bigwheel down the hotel corridors
Optimal Anger Management Technique – Extreme Sandbox
Who wouldn’t love to move earth and crush cars with bulldozers, excavators, backhoes, trenchers and the like?
Symmetrical Prediction – Gingersnap!
I’ve stated my case several times that Axe won season 1, Chuck won season 2, both lost season 3, and I predicted both would win in season 4, at least professionally. Billions loves symmetry and we see in this season’s finale that both Chuck and Axe can place a mark in the win column for what they were trying to accomplish with their careers/business. And to be even more symmetrical, both lost to a great extent in their personal lives – Axe losing Rebecca and Chuck losing Wendy. However, this scenario is a perfect setup for season five because Chuck and Axe will no doubt get back to what we love… and that is smashing each other to death.
Honorable Mention – Wendy and Axe making the bed together with fresh sheets was sublime. Rich people first think of changing rooms before manual labor LOL And how about that tension?
Well, That Looks Delicious Award – I’m a breakfast girl. I love eggs, bacon, home fries and pancakes. And oh, did that breakfast Axe and Bensinger were having look good! Pass the syrup!
Best Football Reference Award – I’m a sucker for a Doug Flutie reference, and since it’s coming from Mafee, it’s all the better!
My Kinda Girls Award – Heavy construction equipment and beers! Rebecca and Wendy are my type of chicks!
