World Gone Wrong
by Sarene Leeds | Vulture | April 7, 2019
On the surface, the two Billions protagonists emerged from tonight’s excellent episode — written by co-showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien — triumphant. But the music that soundtracked “Overton Window,” specifically Bob Dylan’s “World Gone Wrong,” which opened and closed the episode, paints a less rosy picture than Chuck and Axe may evince.
At this stage of their never-ending game, the alliance between the onetime archenemies has proven to be a savvy business decision: Chuck Rhoades Jr. is the New York State attorney general-elect, and Bobby Axelrod has ostensibly destroyed Mason Capital by having Grigor Andolov — and his money — thrown out of the country.

Chuck Risks Everything To Win
by Dana Feldman | Forbes | April 7, 2019
Everyone shows their true grit in the latest episode of Billions entitled “Overton Window.” It’s helpful to acknowledge what exactly the episode’s title means: This window is the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse, aka the ‘window of discourse’. In a nutshell, what behaviors will people accept in a political candidate?
The concept, which was first developed in the mid-1990s by Joseph Overton of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, states that an idea’s political viability depends mainly on whether or not it falls within this window, rather than on a politician’s individual preferences. According to Overton, the window contains the range of policies that a politician can recommend without appearing too extreme to gain or keep public office in the current climate of public opinion.

It’s pure chaos as Axe Cap is under attack, and Chuck drops a bombshell on election night
by Kyle Fowle | Entertainment Weekly | April 7, 2019
Remember last week, when I said Billions had aired that early season episode that really kicked the action into high gear? Well, I was right, but there’s a good chance that “The Overton Window” is even better. It takes two moments of attack and turns them into pure Billions gold, as Axe and Chuck try to fight their way out of a tough spot. It’s an episode that solidifies their partnership in a way that’s seemingly irreversible, and it’s great to not really know what that means for the rest of the season.
The episode opens on the night before the primary election to determine the presumptive State Attorney General for New York. Chuck’s deal with Axe is paying off. Axe has hired men to sabotage school buses in the district, and to offer up a free casino trip with plenty of chips for a number of other constituents. That means record low voter turnout, which is a good thing for Chuck. Axe wants Chuck to do a happy dance. Chuck obliges with an absolutely hilarious “flatfoot and buck,” but he’s not actually excited. He has to drop out of the race.
