Af­ter the screw-turn­ing ten­sion of the sea­son one fi­nale, Bil­lions shows its con­fi­dence and class at the be­gin­ning of the new run by tak­ing a step back from the cliff edge and al­low­ing us to catch up with the char­ac­ters.

We last saw US At­tor­ney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Gia­matti) phys­i­cally fac­ing off against bil­lion­aire hedge fund owner Bobby “Axe” Ax­el­rod (Damian Lewis) in the ruins of Axe Cap­i­tal’s of­fices which Axe had torn apart in the fear that Chuck had bugged the place. Chuck had got in­side Axe’s head, and with Wendy (Mag­gie Siff ) no longer work­ing as Axe’s in-house ther­a­pist (and hav­ing also left Chuck, her hus­band) it was hard to see how this spi­ralling and ob­ses­sive battle of egos was go­ing to end in any­thing but Axe’s even­tual down­fall.
