[Season Premiere, what happened?] If you don't want to read below here's a quick recap: FINANCE! MONEY! I'M MUCH MORE OF A MAN THAN YOU'LL EVER BE! PAUL GIAMATTI LOVES TO BE DOMINATED! MORE MONEY!
Actual long recap:
Bobby Axelrod is still looking fine and everything is as crazy as it was in the previous seasons. While the quality might have gone slightly downhill, the crazyness is still peak high.
The three way scheme that was teased and started last season didn't live in secret for long, Bobby, Chuck, and Taylor all know what is going on and they are all scheming (because that's pretty much the plot of the show).
So what is going on between the main characters?
Chuck and Wendy
It's war. The divorce is happening (no news on Wendy/Axe romance just yet) and they are both out for blood. Wendy released a public statement on their separation and Chuck froze her assets. Wendy tells Axe she'll gut him.
Chuch and Axe
The supposedly three way scheming operation didn't work, so as a token of "peace" Axe returns Chuck's precious books. Loads of white man pain, internal dick measuring contest goes on.
Really sexist remarks on models aside, the man decides to become a bank. I guess this will be his path for this season and I'm here for it.
Now, think of this show whatever you want but it gave us Taylor Mase -an actual brilliant non binary character on tv. And they are not just there to die in two episodes.Taylor is scheming, of course, had a quick meeting with their ex and will have to unleash their inner monster to survive among those men. Again, I'm so here for their character.
He failed the Chris Rock test and is just the supportive best friend tv suggests we all want. Whatever he does, I'm also here for it.
ONTD, are you watching this show? Yes, I am aware that it is problematic but man if it is entertaining! And it def gets bonus points for a non binary character as an actual main character! What did you watch this weekend?
