Indie folk and alternative country singer songwriter Josh Ritter’s ‘Homecoming‘ was that lovely song playing towards the end of the series finale of Billions today, as Wendy ends her conversation with Axe and heads downstairs and out of the building.
There she is surprised but happy to see Chuck waiting for her where, after a short conversation, she asks him if he wants to make dinner tonight a family dinner.
Chuck responds, “The kids would love that. Absolutely. And so would I” and the pair walk off together.
The Ritter track was the final song played on Billions, Season 7, Episode 12, “Admirals Fund” before Steve Miller Band plays out the episode and, of course, the series.

The song itself talks about the pleasures of arriving home after the temptations of the road:
A box of wine, an alibi
And the hunger in her eyes
In the place where the tree of good and evil
