Magical Thinking

Original Air Date: Apr 3, 2016

Axe loses hundreds of millions of dollars on a bad trade and turns to Wendy for help. Chuck sets out on an odyssey to secure powerful allies in the fight against Axe. Lu balks at Lara's suggestion she become the new chef at Axe Capital -- and takes her sister back to the old neighborhood to remind her of their roots. Meanwhile, Sacker and Connerty close down the Axe Capital investigation just as Chuck finds evidence -- right in his own home -- that could salvage the case.

"In the wake of Donnie's death and the resultant dissolution of the case against Bobby Axelrod, however, we instead get a dark-night-of-the-soul episode, filled with somber reflection, scenes of regret and reconciliation, and the crossing of a new set of lines."

"The episode starts off with Axe Capital losing up to $1 billion in an instant after Axe makes a bet that everyone in his office advised him not to make."

"It's always fun to watch a show like Billions slow down and offer up a character-driven episode."
