Final week’s Succession started with a Logan Roy jumpscare, and this week, the siblings started by making an attempt to not screw the whole media empire up. Nicely, aside from Shiv, who was enjoying either side by giving Lukas Matsson the within scoops forward of the takeover closure. Some damaging details about Matsson (who’s apparently not even a coder, by way of his head of comms) and his financials did slip out, however amid that invaluable perception, everybody on this present was combating.
Past Kendall’s semi-showdown with Matsson (and never every little thing got here on the market), three large arguments stood out, and viewers had been each fueled and destroyed by them. First, we obtained a Rava sighting, and she or he learn Kendall the riot act over what a horrible mother or father he’s: “I used to be elevating our daughter when you had been f*cking operating a racist information group.” Rava may be the character on this present who’s most able to talking the reality.

Subsequent up? Gerri telling Roman the way it’s gonna be after he tried to faux that he didn’t actually hearth her, and if he doesn’t let her management her personal narrative: “I’ll sue and go public… with the numerous, many footage of your genitalia.”
And eventually, now we have the “scorpion” (Shiv) and the “snake” (Tom). The episode started with them having fun with breakfast amid their sexual reunion, however then Tom broke out probably the most subliminally poisonous current he may handle.
The peace may by no means final. The scorpion ended up being foreshadowing for when these stingers got here out in a balcony combat. Years of their pent-up anger spilled out with the betrayal and the almost-prison sentence within the combine, together with Shiv’s accusation of him “f*cking me for my DNA.” It was exhausting to witness, however get away the Emmys already.
HBO’s Succession airs on Sundays at 9:00pm EST.
