"Of course, there are some things you can’t fake. Neither Chuck, nor Wendy, nor any of Charles Rhoades Sr.’s illegitimate children are a blood-type match for Charles pere, who needs a kidney transplant to survive. A high-spirited, heist-infused episode like this one can obscure it somewhat, but Billions at its best always digs down to what its brilliant characters can’t fake their way through."


"'The Nordic Model' is an episode that's a little more "old school" Billions: Chuck and Axe go after each other, we get some twists and turns, bribery and intimidation, and then eventually, a climax brings the battle to a close (as the larger war rages on). It's twisty, fun, and funny, and the B-plots do their job moving the season's other stories forward."
