Play Now Billions Season 3 Episode 2 The Wrong Maria Gonzalez
With Axe’s license to trade suspended, he tries to find creative ways to do so anyway, by contacting previous employees with their own shops. Dake and Connerty get a judge known for favouring the free market, and Chuck can’t risk the case like this and pulls in favours in order to get the judge changed. Meanwhile, due to a freak Tsunami in Brazil, Axe’s investments are looking down for the day, something Taylor can’t have, seeing as Axe has already cordoned off $2 billion, a move seen as lack of confidence in Taylor, but Wags sees through it as a way for Axe to be able to trade by proxy. Meanwhile, Connerty is having his own issues as after confronting Victor Mateo’s maid, Maria Gonzalez, who spiked her Ice Juice and drank it on video, Victor realizes she’s been compromised, and Axe directs the new replacements for Hall to get rid of her, by having her arrested by ICE, and expediting her deportation. The new AG is not sympathetic to Dake’s issues, and refuses to help. Taylor gains the confidence to make a risky play, which Axe respects, and concedes the $2 billion to their control, which they then inform Axe that they’ll give to certain outside investors, allowing Axe to trade using them anyway.
Chuck tries to cash in a favor owed to him by an honorable judge. Axe orchestrates creative new avenues for conducting trades. Wendy helps Taylor weather their first major crisis. Connerty continues chasing down Ice Juice leads.
