Recap of Episode 6 of Season 6 of Billions
Mike seeks to appease the Governor of New York’s gigantic ego now that he’s discovered it.
Because the subway vehicle donation is expected to cost him over two billion dollars, he decides to accept applications for Prince List at the suggestion of Scooter and Wags.
The Prince List’s most appealing aspect is the scarcity it creates. The same scarcity, on the other hand, has the ability to bring it all down.
Lauren Turner (Jade Eshete) makes her first appearance of the season. She brings a proposition from her present boss, Leon, a former NFL star who is now a home-workout entrepreneur and philanthropist.
Leon aspires to be a member of the Prince List; his credentials make him an ideal candidate, and Prince gladly welcomes him. Meanwhile, Prince turns the unhappy subway drivers’ union into his clients in order to deal with them.
Because all of New York City’s public-sector pensions are grouped together, the rest of them fall under Michael Prince Capital’s umbrella as well. Chuck was prepared to fight for the subway drivers’ union, but Prince’s action removes the bullet from his rifle.
When Chuck notices Leon on the Prince List, he tells him that the NYPD is one of the other clients. Leon then tells Prince that he can’t be in the same investment group as the NYPD, and that if he’s fired, he’ll take others with him.
Taylor then launches an attack on Leon and destroys his public image using a new software called Winch, whose original function is the total elimination of social media errors.

Billions Season 6 Episode 6 Ending, Explained
Chuck achieves a total victory over Prince in this episode. Dave demonstrates her superiority by compelling Kate (Condola Rashd) to accept her first defeat.
In this episode, Leah Calder (Wendie Malick) makes her first appearance of the season. Chuck approaches her to discuss Prince’s donation.
Ultimately, the automobiles are rejected on the grounds that they were built by a Chinese firm. It doesn’t appear to matter that they were created in America by American labour.
Prince tries to save the situation by contacting the Governor, but he discovers that Chuck has already reached Sweeney.
He is obligated to contribute two billion dollars to New York transportation services in exchange for absolutely nothing.
In this episode, Chuck triumphs over Prince in two stages. The first is something Prince is aware of: the subway system. Chuck has effectively put a mole within the Prince List, which he is unaware of.
When Charles Sr. learns of the Prince List’s opening, he informs his son that he wants to be a part of it and even offers to be Chuck’s inside man.
Chuck dismisses the idea, knowing that his father will never be allowed back in. However, the premise of the concept remains.
Michael Prince Capital plans to invest with Prince’s alma mater, Indiana A&M University. The issue is that they are not easily influenced by changes. Prince has threatened to discontinue supporting the college as a benefactor.
When they agree to listen to him, he takes the entire university board to New York City to persuade them. However, it quickly becomes clear that they are there to publicly reject him.
The board, however, through Stuart Legere, agrees to join the Prince List with their 2.9 billion dollars. Chuck has coerced him into doing this, it is discovered. He’s got his mole now.
