This recap of Amazon Series Goliath Season 3, Episode 6, “Fer-De-Lance” contains spoilers. You can read our recap of the previous episode by clicking these words.

Episode 6 opens with a flashback of Billy (Billy Bob Thornton) and Marisol enjoying a conversation on a balcony. They talk of the prospect of selling his home. His daughter Denise then comes out onto the balcony curious as to what they are talking about. The scene then merges to real life on the same balcony, and Denise tells him to forget about Marisol. It’s an indication of where Billy’s mind is at the moment.

It’s time to get on with the case, but first Patty raises her concerns with Billy — specifically how he has been all over the place. Billy reassures her that he is fine, and he is here to work.

The depositions in Episode 6 were glorious. Billy and Patty grill the Blackwoods, unfolding their complicated relationship to uncover how they obtained the county’s water supply. The depositions are met with a series of flashbacks, showcasing their relationship, and how Wade brought Diana into the corporate farmer’s group. It was Diana who thought of taking over the water estate. An important question is asked of Billy — who got the LA Metro approval to take over the water? This is where Spencer came to the fold, as he provided Wade with the links needed to make it happen. Marisol was also an important contact in the flashbacks, and so was Tom Wyatt. Wade points out that he is not legally obliged to turn over the NDAs.

It turns out though that Wade and Diana had another leverage to use their Water Board to take over 99% of the water. The one niggling aspect in Wade’s deposition is company Fer-De-Lance, which Episode 6 suggests is heavily linked to Diana to provide her with some protection.

Episode 6 briefly shows us Britanny’s Bar Hearing so she can attempt to enter the law community. Unfortunately, Billy is late to support her and the Bar delve into the time Billy asked her to get information about a police officer.  Billy arrives but his speech is hardly effective, as they start packing up.

Goliath Season 3, Episode 6, “Fer-De-Lance” ends with Billy flicking through agreements, and he sees one name — his ex, Marisol Silva.

Drunken, Scrawly Notes

  • Billy and Donald see each other in the elevator during depositions, making it a rather awkward confrontation.
  • In one of the flashbacks, Diana had a mental breakdown after losing a significant career prospect and drove herself off the bridge with her adopted sons in the car.
  • Dolores is found by JT. Billy asks for her help and promises that her identity will be confidential.

    Another flashback. Flashbacks are from Satan. Every episode seems to have one. Almost ready to quit on this season. Lazy writing.
