One of the bigger storylines in 'Billions' Season 6 was Kate Sacker (Condola Rashad) switching sides. She's moved away from New York AG Chuck Rhoades' (Paul Giamatti) office and joined Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) as the lead counsel on his plans of hosting the New York Olympics. It was a huge win for Prince with an analytical and brilliant Sacker on his side, and the upcoming episode pits her against her replacement Daevisha ‘Dave’ Mahar (Sakina Jaffrey).

Will it be Kate Sacker vs Dave Mahar in 'Billions' Season 6 Episode 6?

It's only a matter of time before the clash of the titans and it's interesting to see how Sacker tackles Dave. If anything, the duo have a lot in common — they love to win and don't hold back when it comes to making power moves. This may effectively put the Prince vs Chuck battle on the backburner for at least an episode, but with the show focusing on developing Sacker's arc, this might be one of the plotlines that will see ample screentime.

Fans on social media were pleased that Sacker was being given a more prominent role and the response would encourage the writers to keep the story going. The official synopsis for Episode 6 reads, "After a donation to the city of New York puts a strain on the firm, Prince must find fresh capital. Despite skepticism from his team, Chuck searches for a way to undermine Prince’s largesse. Sacker and a competitor size each other up."
