The most recent episode of the HBO series Succession saw the death of the show’s main character, Logan Roy. The episode, “Connor’s Wedding,” saw Logan collapsing on a plane on his way to visit Lukas Matsson. The Roy siblings were called individually to speak to Logan one final time as Tom encouraged them. Shiv, who was the last to speak with Logan, missed the opportunity as Logan had passed away already. The rest of the episode focused on the siblings trying to figure out how to announce the death of their father.
Fans had expected that the character would pass away at some point during the show’s final season, but most had not predicted that it would happen so soon. Now that Logan is dead, it is likely that the rest of the season will focus on the Roy children, Kendall, Shiv, Roman and Connor, battling it out for their father’s assets at Waystar Royco.
Although Brian Cox, the actor who played Logan Roy, has left his role in Succession, he has stated that he has no plans to stop working. The actor is already making strides, having two plays lined up as well as hoping to direct a film in May and June. Succession creator Jesse Armstrong announced earlier this year that season 4 would be the show’s last. Although it is unclear how the show will end, it is certain that the season will be action-packed with the Roy children trying to divvy up their late father’s assets.
The death of Logan Roy has been well-received thus far, as it keeps the show’s themes of power struggles, family dynamics, and corporate drama, while also adding a new layer to the story. Fans are eagerly anticipating how the show will end, with many predicting that the final episode will leave the audience on a major cliffhanger. Nevertheless, Succession’s finale season is anticipated to be a hit.
