It’s Always About the Past…

And just like that – THEY ARE BACK!
Episode 8 picks up soon after Axe decides to go to war with Mike Prince. It sets the tone for the rest of the season, and is packed with Billions-y twists and turns, wonderful cameos, and some serious punches in the face!
So what is Mike ‘Thomas Aquinas’ Prince doing, in full costume, rehearsing lines before the mirror??? Look at his face, he can not have enough of himself in the mirror with that ridiculous hat…

Back in Business

Season 5, Episode 8: ‘Copenhagen’
Chuck Rhodes has shaved off his beard. But he wants to be clear: It’s not that big a deal.
“You look ready to toss your cap in the air at West Point!” exclaims his underling Karl Allard (Allan Havey).
Rhodes’s weary reply? “Don’t make a whole thing of it.”
My guess, and it’s just a guess, is that this new clean-shaven Chuck Rhodes has more to do with the vagaries of scheduling talent for the back half of this Covid-scrambled season than a decision made in the writers’ room. If your show stars Paul Giamatti, and if he has gone beardless sometime during the many months since you were last able to film, then by God, your main character will go beardless as well.

Two Big Wins for Axe, But This Ain’t Over Yet
by Kyle Fowle | Entertainment Weekly | September 5, 2021
Billions is finally back! Season 5 was interrupted by COVID-related work stoppages last year, depriving all of us of the back half of what has so far been a really solid season. A quick recap, since it’s been so long: Axe is trying to get in the business of running a charter bank so he can, you know, have even more money than usual. Chuck, as attorney general, is doing everything he can to stop that from happening, while also trying to finally find something to take down Axe and Axe Capital for good. Meanwhile, Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) has arrived as another rival for Axe, the seemingly do-good entrepreneur representing everything Axe despises — namely good intentions, real philanthropy, and making money without exploitation.
