Episode Seven: The Limitless Sh*t
To celebrate the show’s compelling brand of absurdity, we’re keeping track of the most Billions-y things that happen on Billions this season. For highlights from the latest episode, brace yourselves and head below.
This Episode Is Actually Titled “The Limitless S**t”
Yes, that title is indeed a reference to the 2011 Bradley Cooper flick Limitless. In that movie (which later became a short-lived TV series of its own), Cooper stars as a guy who takes a drug that improves his brain function to the nth degree. (Or, as Phyllis from The Office once put it, “Isn’t that the one where the guy becomes limitless?”) And that’s exactly what goes down at Axe Capital this week—sort of. But we’ll have more on that in a moment. For now, take a second to appreciate that episode title, which is just a peak Billions Bro move—even more so than calling this season’s second episode “The Chris Rock Test.”
