The real kicker comes from Karl, who says, “If it’s any consolation, I’m horrible at gift-buying. Uh, what’s about to happen here?4. • Roman, illiterate: “Is this one of those things I need a woman to explain to me why it’s bad?” Shiv: “Don’t ask me. “I super-love you, superdad.” When news surfaces that a longtime accountant in cruises has damaging information on the payouts and shadow logs that covered up abhorrent misconduct in the division, Shiv comes to understand that a new CEO would suffer huge damage to her reputation.
Some labels take a while to peel off, but I happen to think you have a best instincts of all of them.”) and Kendall. I’m not your grope Geiger counter.”In the end, the cruises revelations are enough to send Nan Pierce literally running away from the deal while blaming Rhea and Logan for conspiring to steal the company out from under her. A tragic arc isn’t necessarily a redemptive one.• Connor does get the best tribute video, however.
Amid panels, nature hikes, and $75 Cobb salads, a new threat to the family’s survival emerges. The Roy children have been in this trench together their entire lives. “Sometimes I think I’ll never truly understand dad until I shit outside.”) But one glimpse at his cozy childhood home renders it such an obvious fiction that Logan won’t even get out of the car for a quick tour and a photo-op.

Permission to never fucking board?”) The whole affair leaves Logan in an even weaker position against the takeover bid than he had before, with the prospect of continued fallout and lasting damage to a profitable part of the company.
In the end, though, Shiv finds a more substantive way to screw over Rhea than to make things awkward with Marcia or to touch on one of Logan’s sore spots inadvertently.
Succession has always been careful to keep its distance from its .001% characters; you’re not so much rooting for them in the world as rooting for … A recap of ‘Dundee,’ episode 8 of season 2 of Succession on HBO. Roman and Kendall are so far on the outs with their father that they crave this sort of flattery, especially coming from the woman who currently has his ear. The mortifying spectacle of an unwelcome tribute celebration reveals the phony mythology that props up the Logan Roy story. Succession follows a dysfunctional American global-media family. For this same man to defend his brother so instinctually is stunning to witness, especially after Roman had taken such rhetorical delight over Kendall’s misfortune. His kids are under the impression that he quite literally didn’t have a pot to piss in, and that the road to billions was an improbable rags-to-riches tale. Look beyond Roman’s withering assessment of Gerri as “a competent kind of clever filing cabinet that everyone seems content to have around” and a team-up between the two of them makes a certain amount of sense.

But when the sun rises again, the entire Roy family will still be on this dysfunctional cruise ship together, captained by a man with both hands firmly grasped to the wheel. It’s difficult to say which of the two slaps hurt the most — the first is more existentially wounding, the second … well … knocks out a tooth — but it’s enough to refocus the show on the Roy family dynamic and the various cycles of abuse that run through it, starting at the top. Always get the wrong thing.”And so in “Dundee,” before the family members, business associates, and local officials gathered in Scotland for a surprise celebration of Logan’s 50th year in the business, we witness the mortifying spectacle of a tribute rap, with beats by DJ Squiggle and rhymes by the hollowed soul with the custom jersey and bowtie. And so she decides to allow her father to enjoy his evening without knowing the accountant is prepared to come forward, and she gives him her implied blessing on Rhea as CEO, which has the added benefit of impressing her father with her magnanimity.
