Entitled “Honeymoon States”, Succession Season 4 Ep 4 begins the titular endgame in earnest as the combatants take their positions and make their plays in the wake of Logan Roy’s death. The ‘old guard’ executives do their best to steady the ship in their favour while the siblings jockey their way to be appointed interim CEO. Well, Kendall and Roman in any case.
Succession Season 4 Ep 4 finds Shiv in a difficult situation. Her pregnancy is occupying her thoughts and she is suspicious that her brothers will betray her. She is obviously unhappy. For the ones in the middle ,viz. Tom and Greg, there is a lot of grovelling to be done with either side, to cover all the bases. Marcia is certainly revelling in the event and sells the Roy residence to an enthusiastic Conner.
Yes, everybody on this series is a monster. But that is because Logan made the environment toxic, forever manipulating everyone around him. Even beyond the grave, he has his impact on their lives, with the letter found in Logan’s desk drawer suggesting his intent or perhaps nothing at all. Who knows? But of course, Kendall is all messed up about the discovery of the letter, which suggests Logan intended for him to be CEO, and he begins his descent into darkness.
This will not end well.
… still there’s more …
