Billions Season 5 Episode 8 Recap
The episode is titled ‘The Limitless S–t.’
In the episode, Bobby begins doubting his own sense of judgment after falling prey to Vigilantrix, a drug that enhances human efficiency just like in the movie ‘Limitless.’ Blinded by its effect on him, Bobby asks all the employees of Axe Capital and Taylor Mason Carbon to savor the drug, which sends everyone into a chaotic mental spiral that causes them to think erratically. Under the effect, Bobby almost passes a plan to invest in meteor harvesting, thinking it would gain his company more profit. Thankfully, a clear-headed Taylor comes to his rescue and convinces Bobby that doing so will burn a $3 billion hole in the company’s pocket.
Bobby withdraws and appreciates Taylor for their sensible suggestion. The feeling of gratitude turns sour when Taylor informs him about a deal they entered into with Mike, which might cause the impact fund to record a loss for a few quarters for potential growth in the future. Bobby loses his mind and tells Taylor that they’ve been played by Mike. On a personal front, Bobby invites Wendy and her beau Nico Tanner for dinner, where he shows off his gorgeous date Maria Sharapova and Wags… Well, he brings along the potential young mother to his future child. Throughout the gathering, Bobby passes sly remarks at Tanner and looks visibly uncomfortable at Tanner and Wendy’s proximity.
Chuck successfully manages to strike a hit at Bobby’s charter bank plans by manipulating the Treasury Secretary Krakow to shoot himself in the foot by going off at the cabinet ministers, which subsequently gets him fired from his position. On the other hand, Chuck also shoots his shot at finding a donor for his father’s deteriorating condition but stops right before agreeing to harvest a kidney from a child, indicating he still has a part of his soul intact.
