Entitled “Connor’s Wedding”, Succession Season 4 Ep 3 pulls the rug from under the characters as well as the dedicated following of the series. The titular wedding provides the backdrop for the shocking sudden death of Logan Roy. Yes, Logan dies in this episode! The demise is handled in a very realistic manner – no deathbed scenes and the like – and presented from the perspective of the other characters dealing with the event.
Succession Season 4 Ep 3 begins with Logan heading over to Sweden to negotiate further with Mattson, as he boards his private aircraft, he is a visibly good mood, ready the devour the world as he usually does. Then, his children are given the news through telecommunications and the shock and trauma is palpable. For the viewer, there is a powerlessness witnessing the events unfolding, which is very much akin to real life. A powerful perspective to receive.
And just like that Logan is gone and the series finally leans into its title. Presumably the remainder of this final season will deal with the aftermath of his death. Kendall, Roman and Shiv have been united since the beginning of this season, will that all change with “succession” literally now the focus of their lives. Intriguing. A unique moment in TV history no doubt. Recommended!
