When will 'Billions' Season 5 Episode 8 air?

After taking a hiatus of almost two months, ‘Billions’ will be back with a new episode on Showtime on Sunday, September 5 at 9 pm EST. The episode, titled ‘Copenhagen’, will be focused on the never-ending war between Mike Prince (Corey Stoll) and Bobby Axelrod. Meanwhile, Chuck Rhoades is looking for his own place to strike, while Taylor and Wendy continue to see if they can navigate what has been a rather tenuous partnership so far.

The war will surely be intense because we can see Bobby saying that “you did a terrible mistake in coming here” to Mike while Chuck knows that he needs to do something to make a mark and needs to take someone down so that he can become the main player. On the other hand, he is also finding out ways to save his father. But one mistake can sidetrack him.
