Billions (S01E04): “Short Squeeze”


Tonight episode of Billions, was brilliant yet again, not a good as last weeks but still amazing. 

So after getting one of his portfolio managers out of trouble with the police, Axe takes a trip to see Metallica in concert with his old childhood friends. Whilst there he finally see’s things from a different perspective. This woman he meets makes him face the limits of his own freedom. Thankfully he never cheated, thank gosh. I mean Lara would never let he get away with that, we know that. But also I really like their whole marriage and how their like a team, its so refreshing to see that, since marriages in TV these days don’t look anything like this one. Axe must also fend off a short squeeze—an attack on one of his important holdings—led by Chuck’s father.

Meanwhile back in New York, Chuck has an epic day-long session with Pete Decker, learning important facts about the inner workings of Axe Capital. And on the other hand Chuck has to deal with his fathers stock manipulation.
