Mike Princen bought AxeCap from Axe, and paid him two million dollars upfront at Season 5. The agreement also stopped Princen from being sent to prison for any marijuana-related problems. Rhoades is determined to capture Axe and learns about Prince’s maneuvering that saw his target escape to Switzerland. Wendy (Maggie Siff), is devastated when Axe chooses to travel instead of staying at home and caring for his family. Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon), will probably be Mike’s new boss. Only time will tell if she changes her mind and works on her relationship to Axe.
Fan Reaction to “Billions” Season 5 Episode 11: “Victory Smoke” has been described by fans as mind-bending.
According to the clip, a new conflict is on the horizon. Brian Koppelman (co-creator) of the show claimed that the season was structured differently in an interview with EW. Season 6 of ‘Billions has everything you love about its tone, ensemble, feel, and style. This is the next stage in the show’s evolution. The cast of characters hasn’t changed. Each character still has their needs, wants, and desires. These may or not be in conflict with the needs of others on the show.
Will Damian Lewis play Bobby Axelrod again in “Billions” Season 6?
After the conclusion of the last season, fans wondered if Lewis would be returning for the sixth season. The next season’s promo featured him absent as well. Axe’s exit was, however, a classic Axe. Axe told Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) that he was leaving but “I can’t live my life as a caged beast.” He had been held captive by them. I won’t stay fighting, I’m going into jail. I’m leaving here… to a country in Europe where financial crimes are not exempt from extradition.
It is possible to assume that Axe won’t be returning anytime soon. Although there will be flashbacks and name drops, Lewis is most likely to be absent for at least half of Season 6. Lewis’ return is possible, however, as ‘Billions’ is known for throwing unexpected surprises along the way. He hinted at his departure when he spoke to GQ in 2020 as the titular character. “Over time I notice Bobby Axelrod leans heavily upon me,” he said. I was fed up by the end of each six month period.
