"This week’s episode of Billions uses Neil Young’s song 'Old Man' to tie a bow around two of its story lines. In the first, Charles Rhoades Sr. has kidney failure, and his advanced age (and bad habits) makes him an unlikely candidate for a donor. It’s a predicament even his son Chuck’s legal wizardry may be unable to remedy. In the second story line, Bobby Axelrod discovers that his abusive grifter father has re-entered his mother’s life."

"Much like last week's episode, 'Contract' is better than the first few episodes of the season because it really gets the ball rolling on some character-specific storytelling. We've seen a lot of the same stuff with Axe and Chuck over the years, so it's a smart choice for the show to move to a different kind of storytelling with them. Now we have Axe dealing with childhood trauma, and Chuck maybe finding a new romantic partner who understands and accepts his sexual proclivities in a way Wendy, no matter how dedicated she was, never truly did."
