Storyline

After getting one of his Portfolio Managers out of trouble with the police, Axe takes a spontaneous trip to see Metallica in concert with his childhood friends. While there, he meets a free spirited young woman who makes him face the limits of his own freedom. He also must fend off a short squeeze-an attack on one of his important holdings-led by Chuck's father. Back in New York, Chuck has an epic day-long proffer session with Pete Decker, learning important facts about the inner workings of Axe Capital. But Chuck must also take action against his own father for his stock manipulation. Axe reckons with a cold betrayal by one of his old friends, and upon his return, Axe makes a momentous decision about the direction of his firm.

High speed drama - like a Metallica gig
8 February 2016 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of this series, I'd give a ten for every of the previous episodes. This one is special because it is composed of several threads beautifully intertwined in the course of the episode.

Axe maneuvers a short through a heavy storm sparked by a very motivated enemy and with the expensive help by another foe. He meets a band (Metallica) and an old friend, but to what avail? He saves a friend, then discards him. A young woman heavily hits at him but he isn't game.

By the way: The woman is played by the wonderful Kelly Bishé.

Meanwhile, Chuck ducks a question by his wife, poses many questions to a very reluctant and not very informative whistle-blower. He has to deal with the fact that his office has been compromised. But the man who orchestrated the attack on the US attorney is too smart to be caught, initiates a counterattack and brings Chuck's arch nemesis from the SEC in a wonderful position and his arch nemesis in his own family aka his father in an awkward position. It's fun to watch how Chuck makes his father, so to speak, pick up the poop with his hands.

Both couples, the Axelrods and the Rhoades's have some quality time in the end.

Attention: no BDSM, no depreciative comments or sex acts towards women, actually no sex at all.
