One of the finest episodes of any series I've seen
3 May 2017 | by adamdaly1985See all my reviews

Dear Kusama, Koppelman, Levein and Sorkin. Take a bow. This episode was by all metrics incredible television. To have arrived at the episode's conclusion in such a way was masterful writing and direction. With such a multi-faceted episode across numerous time scales and from multiple perspectives without giving anything away is a huge feat for anybody crafting a story so what was achieved by Kusama and the excellent writing trio was nothing short of impressive.

Of course it goes without saying that the performances from this wonderful ensemble were once again stellar but at this point such an observation is expected from the show. Giammati in particular steals the show and the final scene in particular is one to really savour. Asia Dillon as Taylor further cements herself (or himself) as one of the most interesting characters in the show.

The episode feels more like a one-off special and even though it's largely episodic in nature, it has an absolutely huge effect on everything. Billions have stepped it up a few gears this season and has quickly become my favourite current series. This episode in particular reinforces that.
