It's the day of Jack Foley's funeral here on Billions, which thankfully doesn't mean it's a somber day. Billions doesn't do somber. Instead, the day sees more power moves, more backstabbing, and more personal reckoning.
It's a fine line between characters you love to hate and ones you despise so much you'd like to see them removed from your television immediately, and "A Proper Sendoff" is designed to push against that line without quite crossing over it.
Axe and Chuck conduct some of their most brutally total takedowns of their enemies yet.
As soon as the James Brown tune "The Payback" plays over the opening images of flames cremating the body of "Black Jack" Foley...it's firmly established that this episode will be about revenge, and there will be no room for subtlety.
Angry Wendy is my favorite Wendy. May she burn so bright she eventually burns up all of these vengeance-fueled men in her life.
Beyond just how realistic it is, this episode really crackled with great writing, and Chuck Sr continues to be an absolute delight every time he gets screen time, adding even more value to what is probably the best season of Billions so far.
