‘Billions’ Superlatives: Venture Philanthropy, Yale Bathrooms, and Bad Parenting

Here is the best, worst, and most from the fourth episode of Season 3

episode by honoring the installment’s best, worst, most, and least. These are your Billions


At the start of this week’s episode, “Hell of a Ride,” it appeared the walls were closing in on Chuck Rhoades—not only was Ira planning to testify against Chuck in the ever-mounting Ice Juice conspiracy, but Connerty had Chuck Sr. at the Southern District’s conference room, offering him immunity to testify against his son.

I’ll let you decide if World-Aid is actually a great philanthropic organization—or something scammy like the Invisible Children people—with one hint: Axe is a World-Aid board member.

Best Analogy


Chuck Sr. dropping trow right in front of Connerty is—and this is true—the single best way he could have handled a thinly veiled threat about a post-Ice Juice prison sentence. It’s the second time this season that an older gentlemen has exposed his nude body to Connerty. “Why does this keep happening to me?” he says to no one in particular, but is probably to God.

Best Sweater

This is literally a

Billions extra who has no name—I’m just going to call him Earnest Gabagool IV—and has never uttered a single line in the show, but somehow has the best garment of the week, possibly of the entire season. My guy is actually being blurred out of the shot by ...
