Episode 1 recap
Season 5 premiered on Sunday, and it kicked off with an episode titled “The New Decas.” According to sources, the first episode brought the drama series to a great start.
It even came with a cameo of WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch as a motivational speaker. Fans may recall that Becky tried to help the Axe Cap and Taylor employees to come together and work as a team.
But all eyes are now on Taylor after she dressed up with safety gears and carried a sledgehammer with her. She then started smashing the whole room she was in.
Taylor was last seen caught in the middle between the former rivals. She still has a long way to go before she can regain the trust of Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis).
It’s still to be known though whether Taylor will have their motivations and ideas about how the rivalry will unfold.
The first episode also started with the wedding of Chuck Rhoades, Sr. (Jeffrey DeMunn), and his now younger wife Roxanne (Lily Gladston). Chuck Sr. is also going to be a father again. While Chuck’s father is getting married, his marriage with Wendy is falling apart.
Aside from the wedding, season 5 episode 1 also showed Axe somewhere in Alaska or Northern Canada. He was on a trip with Mike “Wags” Wagner (David Costabile). They were on their motorcycles to drive their way back home when Wags showed Axe about getting featured on the cover of “Vanity Fair.”
He also tells him that if he wasn’t going to hurry back home, his rival Mike Prince would take the cover. So they fly back home and head to the photoshoot.
Stay tuned for Billions season 5 episode 2.
