The Succession Finale Resurrected The Show’s Most Devastating Subplot In A Perfect Way

They say that for a tragic story, the principle character’s final result should not be the worst factor that may ever occur to an individual; it simply must be what the character thinks is the worst factor that may occur to them. For Shiv, being screwed over by Matsson on behalf of her gender (and subsequently, not being probably the most highly effective individual in her marriage) is a nightmare situation. Roman reached his nightmare situation final week, when he broke down on the funeral and killed his CEO possibilities. 

And but, the episode’s closing moments characteristic Roman smiling at a bar, and Shiv and Tom holding (properly, touching) arms within the limo. As powerful as this season was for Roman and Shiv, their closing scenes point out that shedding this bid may really be the perfect factor to ever occur to them. But for Kendall? It’s more durable to say. Both Roman and Shiv solely spent a 12 months or two max the place they really believed that they had a shot at this, however Kendall’s believed he’d be CEO since he was a child.

In these closing moments the place Kendall appears to be like on the water within the Hudson River alone, it is exhausting to think about a future the place he’ll ever be pleased. His spouse and youngsters hate him, his relationship together with his siblings is probably damaged eternally, and for what? He bought his soul in pursuit of that CEO title, and he is bought nothing to indicate for it.

Of course, materially Ken will probably be high-quality. He’s bought sufficient cash to do almost the whole lot he desires, and he’ll by no means go to jail. Still, it is good to see that the poor waiter from season 1 was considerably, form of, avenged. Kendall nonetheless bought off straightforward, however at the very least he did not get off utterly scot-free.
