S1:E6 The Deal

Original Air Date: Feb 21, 2016

Axe plans a scorched-earth defense against the public attack on his company - threatening his relationship with Wendy in the process. Chuck's interrogation of Dollar Bill does not go as planned, and political pressure mounts for him to recuse himself in the face of a protracted legal battle. Wendy, caught in the middle, engages in deft shuttle diplomacy to facilitate a deal in the best interests of both men. But everything hinges on a face-to-face meeting between Chuck and Axe to finalize the agreement.

Sneak Peek: Take the Easy Way Out

"As Billions heads into the back half of its 12-episode first season, it's helpful to remind ourselves of the show's true identity and embrace the lusty, high-toned delirium that revs its dramatic engine. How else to process The Deal, the show's craziest episode to date?"

"Tonight's doozy of an episode begins with Wendy and Hall in a dark, gloomy underground facility filled with pipes (basically Hall's natural habitat). He leads her to a bathhouse-style heated pool where Axelrod, wearing a robe and nothing else, is waiting for her."

"This is really the episode that Billions has been building toward all season. It's one of the most purely entertaining hours of TV so far this year."
