by Dana Feldman | Forbes | June 14, 2020
All is not fair in love and war. This is made very clear in the midseason finale of Billions. Of note, tonight’s episode “The Limitless Sh*t” was directed by the one and only David Costabile, better known as Wags.

Season 5, Episode 7: ‘The Limitless Sh*t’
Bobby Axelrod can see the Matrix. Or whatever the moneymaking equivalent of the Matrix would be.
After popping a barely legal brain enhancement pill called Vigilantix, provided by Axe Cap’s resident dark-arts practitioner Victor Mateo, Bobby is convinced that both he and any of his employees who have taken this dubious drug are thinking five, 15, 50 steps ahead of their competitors. As stock-ticker numbers fly across the screen, his eyes glow as blue as the Night King’s from “Game of Thrones,” as if he had literal superpowers. And he is focusing those powers on a single goal: Corner the rare-minerals market by investing in meteor harvesting.
