Axe is out of prison, but is separated from Lara. Dake, now U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District, is prosecuting the case with Connerty, and have frozen all of Axe’s capital, which leaves Taylor, now Chief Investment Officer of Axe Capital in a bad position.

Spyros is the new Head of Compliance at Axe Capital. Lara comes in with Steven Birch to check on the assets at Axe Capital, leaving Axe frustrated at the state of his marriage. To unfreeze Axe’s capital, he must give up his licence to trade, temporarily, an idea he’s very uncomfortable with, as he doesn’t know where that puts him regarding the firm. He eventually relents, just as Taylor realizes a good play regarding smart chip technology, and subs in for Axe at the idea’s dinner. Chuck’s friendship with Ira falls apart, as Ira informs him he’ll never speak to him again. Chuck also sours his relationship with his father, Rhoades Sr., who tries to get Jack Foley to back someone else for Governor, but fails.

Lara informs Axe she won’t be coming after the money, but warns him not to lose it.
