Episode Four: Opportunity Zone
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.
A Lot of “Snowflake” Talk This Week!
Well, this is a bummer: Season 5’s fourth episode features more than a few swipes at so-called “snowflakes.” The first comes early, during a sit-down between Axe and Asia Kate Dillon’s Taylor Mason, the latter of whom has been feeling off their game all season long and is currently at odds with Axe over the way he pounced at a recent oil deal. (Gonna be real: The specifics of the oil subplot are a little beyond us.) Maggie Siff’s Wendy calls Axe into her office to speak with Taylor and clear the air. He opens with a charmer: “I’m sorry, Taylor, that you’re in snowflake-mode.” That’s one!
