Two whole seasons on, the cobra-and-mongoose dance between dirty billionaire hedge-fund king Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and his pathologically driven nemesis, US Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), remains as delicately poised as ever.

As the third season begins Axelrod is out on bail and more determined than ever to destroy Rhoades, just as soon as he gets his frozen fund back in business.

Axe is The Chosen One. He’s a hedge fund manager from a humble background who is ruthless in the business world. He takes every competitive advantage possible to be the best at what he does. James maneuvered to formulate the Big Three in Miami and then shifted the NBA balance of power to Cleveland, using the media to push his agenda (and desire to trade for Kevin Love).
