It’s Time to Put Aside the Measuring Tape, Boys!

While I find the way they operate appalling, it is impossible not to applaud Axe and Chuck for eliminating a lot of risk in the first four episodes. Chuck has been able to convince Dake to cover up Wendy’s Ice Juice short, change the judge in the Axelrod case and keep his father quiet about his involvement in Ice Juice. Axe’s performance has been even more stellar with him keeping Danny Margolis and the Burke Brothers on his side, having Maria Gonzalez deported, and giving Ira his life back along with an engagement ring from Buccellati’s exclusive collection. We now find the two men going after the loyalty of the same man simultaneously: Dr. Gilbert is the man of the hour.
While Axe is looking forward to his trip to Silicon Valley, the new Halls deliver news big enough to keep him in New York. The Eastern District has grilled every doctor Axe has been to or donated to — including Dr. Gilbert. This reminds Axe that the doctor may still have the slide he told him to get rid of once he verified with him that the bacteria they put in Ice Juice would not be fatal for anyone. Axe may now be saying his line of business is all about eliminating risk but he has no one to blame but himself for Dr. Gilbert having the slide! I highly recommend Axe to hire our own Gingersnap who had said the day after Season 2 Episode 11 Golden Frog Time that Axe should not have left that slide with Dr. Gilbert as a consultant!
