'Billions' Season 6 Episode 5: Is Sarah Stiles character leaving hit Showtime drama?
'Billions' Season 6 saw the departure of Mafee and Dollar Bill Stern in the season opener (not from the show) and by the looks of it, it appears that Sarah Stiles' fiery character appears to have followed the same route. She first appeared in Season 3 and has been in a recurring role since. Highly competitive and risk-oriented, she thrives under Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis), but struggles under the new leadership of Mike Prince (Corey Stoll). Although she's seen staying back in Episode 1, the latest chapter may have seen her spend her last working day at MPC.
Titled 'Rock of Eye', Episode 6 shows Bonnie to have performed below par and fallen short of expectations. When pointed out, she leaves the office fuming, but not before one of her trademark curses. This raises questions about her reappearance on the hit Showtime drama.
Is Sarah Stiles leaving 'Billions'?
We did see some of the key characters move and start out elsewhere, so it does look like Stiles' character may take the same route. Bonnie just might join Mafee and Stern. When Prince cuts her number of clients to half for trading against the others in the company and puts Wags (David Costabile) in charge, she's seen yelling that she would have rather worked in a restaurant if it was all about the team. In her final act of defiance, she storms out.
Bonnie has been one of the characters who was shown to be resilient beneath that sarcastic exterior and was often seen playing her cards right. She fit into the framework that Axe had built and was a perfect fit. With Mike aiming to do things right and hold a sense of accountability, it left the core Axe employees in a bit of a pickle with only Ben Kim and Tuk being able to power through. Only time will tell if she comes back in a cameo appearance on the show.
'Billions' airs Sunday nights at 9 pm on Showtime.
