Billions 3.11 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to Adam R. Perlman (“The Good Wife”).
What says Showtime?
“Axe determines his employees' worth at the year-end “comp” meetings. Chuck advances a dangerous plan, but is distracted by a friend in need of help. Taylor and Axe argue over Taylor's place and worth at the firm. Wendy seeks Lara's aid with an internal Axe Cap problem. Connerty discovers a new, secret source of information.”
How does it start?
“I can’t believe you brought me here,” Kate Sacker (Condola Rashad) admits to boss Chuck Rhoades. “Thank you.”
Chuck’s dangerous plan is to destroy Jock Jeffcoat, the newish U.S. attorney general played by Clancy Brown?
Yes. Chuck wants to “line dance on Jock’s Grave.”
Is Chuck’s “friend in need” someone we’ve met before?
Yes. He’s been around since 2016.
Who’s worth more: Dollar Bill or elevator stripper Ben Kim?
What possible use could the bitter Lara be to Wendy?
Events have dissipated much of Lara’s bitterness toward Wendy, who appeals to Lara’s self-interest.
What’s doing with Malkovich’s oligarch?
He’s referenced, but offscreen. Patti D’Arbanville is back as Axe’s mom though.
The big news?
In the season Clancy Brown was added to the “Billions” cast, we learn Bobby Axelrod is a big fan of “Highlander.”
What else is Showtime not telling us?
Wagstaff is studying Esperanto. Hence this episode’s title.
“Molly Hatchet had three guitarists.” “Act however you want.” “You can’t call yourself that.” “Do you want the nine million or not?” The final scenes with Taylor. The “Godfather II” re-enactment.
What’s not so great?
After tonight only one 2018 episode left.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
Ow, my tiny heart.
