What I’m Watching: Billions

Billions: Season 6, Episode 9 “Hindenburg” (B+)

Well, it didn’t take Prince long at all to exact his revenge on Chuck for scuttling his Olympics plan, and it’s arguably a much more crippling blow. It’s interesting to see Kate be so on board to help, though she admittedly did find that Chuck often abused his office and wasn’t always interested in serving the people. Just as Prince and Axe before him couldn’t resist an apparently easy target, Chuck saw the park across from him when he went to meet Dave, who wasn’t let into the club, and just had to go and make them all suffer. Unfortunately, it was a trap, and even if Prince had some trouble winning over one particular senator, it was Chuck’s refusal to even answer a phone call that did him in. It will be interesting to see what he does next. His speech about Hindenburg was compelling, but not enough to keep him from getting officially voted out of his post. Dave being the acting AG might mean that he still has an influence, but it’s a crushing blow. Scooter and Wags paying all the actors means that they did break laws, something that could eventually lead to Prince getting in Chuck’s sights should he be given any legal authority again. It was good to see Dollar Bill and Mafee again and to see how Taylor acted in a way to preserve two of the best assets on the team while making it very much known that they won’t tolerate the poaching of any of their talent.
