The Unbeatable, Unstoppable, Unparalleled MVPs
by Staff | Fan Fun With Damian Lewis | September 27, 2023
Billions is back and so is our MVP series! We continue to award our Most Valuable Players for Billions season seven in our series compilation, the ‘Billions MVP Fanbook,’ which commemorates all those in honor of achievement for the utmost brazen, uber shameless, ultra scheming, unmatched bad asses from the episode – from sports references, music and tasty food to pop culture remarks, shocking twists and ultimate paybacks. In case you missed it, catch up with the MVPs of the season seven premiere Tower of London, episode two Original Sin, episode three Winston Dick Energy, episode four Hurricane Rosie, episode five The Gulag Archipelago and episode six The Man in the Olive Drab T-Shirt.
Now let’s dive in. Here are the Billions MVP awards for Season 7, Episode 7, “DMV.”
Royal and Regal Rags – Rian stuns in this velvet/velour violet pantsuit for the Michael Prince Capital Casino Night at Gotham Hall.
Crackin’ and Creative Cameo – Timothy Busfield as Dr. Marc Ruloff, Philip’s former professor at Stanford. Believe it or not before there was a Billions for me, there was a Thirtysomething and I was a complete Thirtysomething junkie. I wanted to be Hope and married to Ken Olin 🙂 Who didn’t? Nice to see Busfield’s face on my screen again, but especially nice to see him give it to Prince because we all know just exactly where Dr. Ruloff wanted to put those “fucking scones”…right up Prince’s ass.
Most Apropos Song for a Scene – ‘Drive’ by R.E.M. Perfect for highlighting Kevin passing his New York driver’s test at the DMV.
Deceptive, Dynamic and Devilish Duo – Wags and Scooter.
So traders want to boycott their performance reviews this year? No problem. These two minions will throw a casino night ruse just to have professional poker player Vanessa Selbst analyze your moves and skills because after all, trading is like gambling. Like Victor indicated – not a team building exercise, but rather, an observation chamber.
Iconic Innuendo – Chuck and his Jaws reference. What better way to put a stop to Patent Sharking than to reel in a Spielbergian. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat!” and that boat’s name is the Department of Defense (DoD). Way to put the kabash on Prince!
Food For Thought: Chuck and Wendy. This right here, folks. This. Left me aching for what once was, and yearning for what it could be.
Perfect Chemistry – Chuck and Wendy
I know that many fans entertained the idea of a romantic relationship between Axe and Wendy but I have always believed in Chuck and Wendy as a true couple. They had the best partnership in the show. And Chuck’s words in this episode attest to WHY I have been holding out for these two to get back together…
Chuck: “In this arena, communication has never been an issue. We each know exactly what the other means no matter what the other says.”
Wendy: ”It’s somehow reassuring and horrifying at the same time.”
I find it very reassuring! And adorable. These two belong together. Fingers crossed for more of this in the weeks to come!
