Sneak Peek: Episode 1: You're Going to Have to Throw Me Out

"Move over, Bobby Axelrod: You’re not the only pugnacious redhead in Axe Cap’s hallowed halls anymore. For a brief time during the wildly entertaining Season 5 premiere of Billions, the truculent employees of both Bobby’s company and its quasi-independent subsidiary Taylor Mason Capital unite to admire a surprise guest, the flame-haired Irish professional wrestler Becky Lynch, playing herself."


"The New Decas is a fun, fast-paced episode that gets the season off to a great start. It's propulsive and populated with great scenes... Chuck’s fakeout speech at the wedding; the thwarted attempt at friendship vis-a-vis the Churchill books; and finally, Taylor, smashing everything to bits in a rage room."
