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

Billions Season 3 Plot: Damian Gives Clues – Jan 20, 2018

Billions Season 3: Here’s Everything We Know.

Billions has quietly developed a devoted following over the course of its two seasons on Showtime.  There’s something to be said for quality, and the increasingly vocal Billions fans has helped with the show’s success.

Bobby Axelrod, played by Damian Lewis, is the kind of guy who can’t lead a “normal” life. But that’s exactly what he’ll have to try to do in Billions Season 3. This season will detail Axe’s struggle to regain his livelihood and his financial empire. Easier said than done.

As reported by Deadline, Brian Koppelman divulged, “By the 3rd episode of this season it’s pretty clear that he’s not going to accept that that’s his modern life. He’s going to work really hard to change that. We just wanted to take a superhero in a way and put them in a box for which it’s hard for them to escape.”

“We had these characters that are super powerful within their worlds,” executive producer David Levien said at the TCA press tour. “It’s fascinating to us to put them in situations where they become vulnerable or less powerful. It’s a changing landscape. The question is how will Axe react?”

Not well, one would assume. Will Axe find a way back? Here’s what Damian says about that:

“People go down on this show but they get back up pretty quick,” Damian Lewis said. “That buoyancy is what makes it so exciting to watch… He has a lieutenant now and they are the avatar of everything that he likes and believes in. He will find a way to come back.”

According to Showtime, Axe and Chuck will also “battle for their own survival amid new forces and powerful enemies.”

Showtime Billions at TCA18 

by JaniaJania – Fan Fun with Damian Lewis – January 6, 2018

It’s been a long winter, but now that Billions has announced a return date of March 25 for Season 3, bluier skies may be ahead. On Saturday, showrunners and stars graced the stage for this year’s Television Critics Association winter press tour, where they dropped the first promo and got the buzz up and running for the new season.

The party got started in some fun Facebook live sessions. These short interviews were great at revealing actors’ insights into the characters they play as well as some fun behind the scenes bits.

First was Asia Kate Dillon. As we’ve seen, Taylor has been playing an increasing bigger role since first appearing on canvas. Last season, Axe promoted Taylor to CIO. It looks like this season their role may be even more significant.
