Finding Clues in the Billions Season 3 Trailer & Teaser – Jan 26, 2018

Billions Season Three: The Ultimate Pissing Contest Continues

We kicked off the festivities for Billions Season 3 with a detailed coverage of Billions at TCA 2018 and now that we have an airdate, a trailera teaser and the new season poster, speculation rules until Season 3 premieres on March 25 10pm EST.

They edit the promos in a way so they do not give away much but a taste of what is coming. So “reading” them is not very different than reading the tea leaves, or in my home country, Turkey, the coffee cup.  Still, I cannot help dive deep into them, dissect them, try to put the pieces together and ultimately have fun!

A few seconds into the trailer we find Axe, in his own words, not hiding, not cowering, not defeated… However, indicted!

An indictment establishes, often via a grand jury, there is sufficient ground to charge a suspect with a crime. Then the suspect responds to the indictment with a guilty or a not guilty plea. I wonder if the short exchange between Axe and Orrin Bach implies Axe has already plead not guilty and they are discussing defense.

Axe (maybe talking about Chuck using Boyd to get to him): “What he did, it’s a fucking crime.”

Bach: “Maybe. But it’s not a defense.”

Axe’s disbelief in how he has ended up here is palpable. His frustration is all over his face. Does he still think he did nothing wrong? I doubt it. Whatever we may hear him say along the way, Axe knows he has taken the pissing contest way too far  and seriously fucked up along the way.

Once indicted, you are usually prohibited from leaving the state and you  need to ask for the court’s permission to travel. So now that Axe cannot go to Axe Capital in Westport, Connecticut as he pleases, Axe Capital comes to him.

Welcome to NEW Axe Capital Headquarters in New York! Continue reading Finding Clues in the Billions Season 3 Trailer & Teaser – Jan 26, 2018
