Thread to discuss S3 of HBO's "Succession"


It seems S3E1 picks up shortly after the end of S2. Kendall has just accused his father of being involved in the cover up of dozens of crimes and indiscretions over the years, and he's going to try to get control of the company.

Logan and the rest of the gang just got off the yacht and are in Croatia trying to figure out what their play is. Logan and some key advisors go to Sarajevo, since there is no extradition treaty.

Logan decides he should step down as CEO (temporarily) until this crisis blows over, and he plays mind games with everyone as he's trying to pick his successor. Roman makes clear that he wants it, so that means he's out. Shiv has a chance to take the reins, but she can't get the her friend, the cutthroat lawyer, to represent the company, so she's out. So it looks like Jerri will be the tempCEO, at least for now, which should be interesting with both Logan and Roman trying to pull her strings. Something tells me she's not going to be a very controllable puppet.

Meanwhile, Kendall is in NYC trying to figure out his strategy. He takes over his ex-wife's apartment since his access to Waystar has been revoked and the press is camping out at his building. He takes a pitch meeting with some top PR people and then proceeds to not listen to anything they had to say, and instead tells them what he wants them to do, which seems like a disaster waiting to happen. And Shiv couldn't get her friend, the cutthroat lawyer, to work for Logan's side because she's already agreed to work for Kendall. Cousin Greg is with Kendall and he's just as bumbling as ever.

And all the while, Logan and Co. are stuck at some hotel in Sarajevo right next to the airport.

Discuss!

On Conan O’Brien’s podcast, Kieran Culkin said that originally they wanted him for the part of cousin Greg, but that he wanted the part of Rory and for the audition, he sent them a tape of him doing the part of Rory.
Rory = Roman?
