Critic reviews for The Kingmaker
The pieces fit perfectly on this show these days. You can connect a heartfelt hidden confession like the one Wendy makes to Taylor with a screwball macho plot grenade like Bryan bonding with Gus over the bushido code.
Foley is just so all about pleasantries and rules and old-school elegance and brutal, brutal gamesmanship. It's so creepy and menacing because it all has the glaze of refinement and it fits in perfectly with the world Billions has built.
As Billions gets closer to the end of its second season, two narrative threads are slowly unraveling.
More refreshing still, the episode allows Wendy to reveal flaws in her character, too. We're so used to seeing Wendy as the calm, mature center of a fight between two blustery men.
