Recap Of Billions Season 5
One of the show’s lead actors, Damian Lewis, is not returning for Billions Season 6. Lewis played Axe for the first five seasons of Billions and has appeared in every episode to date. The cat and mouse game between Axe, played by Lewis, and Chuck, played by Paul Giamatti, is arguably one of the most interesting aspects of the show but that, at long last, came to an end in the explosive Season 5 finale.
As a quick recap, Chuck finally had the chance to arrest Axe, who in order to avoid going to jail for 15-25 years was going to have to take a plea deal. But in a shocking twist, Mike Prince, played by Corey Stroll, pulled a double-cross. For the whole season, Prince was aligned with Chuck and helped him in his efforts to bust Axe. But, in the final moments of the Season 5 finale, it was revealed that Prince gave Axe two billion dollars to flee the country; but in return, he would own Axe Bank & Axe Capital. Begrudgingly admitting defeat, Axe accepted and took off to Switzerland to avoid Chuck’s arrest.
The season ended with Chuck realising that he’d be outplayed; however, not by Axe this time…. By Prince, who boasts of his win and smugly tells Chuck that now he got rid of Axe, he is the metaphorical king of the castle. To which Chuck responds, “not for long, pal. Not for f**king long.”
