It’s been such a great season of Billions, filled with horrible parenting, shocking alliances, and two unforgettably strange kissing scenes, that I almost forgot about John Malkovich. Where the hell has he been? The guy was supposed to show up this season as a Russian oligarch— which is such a perfect, delicious bit of casting that it’s frustrating The Americans didn’t give it a spin first—but eight episodes in and no Teddy KGB.
Thankfully, this week’s episode, “Icebreaker,” rewards our patience by giving Malkovich a properly menacing introduction, while Dollar Bill gets a dollar bill stolen at work (no, seriously). Let’s jump into the “Icebreaker” superlatives.
