'Succession' Season 3 Episode 3 Spoilers: Will Shiv exact revenge on Logan and Kendall?
Shiv might just use her new position as 'President' to teach her father and brother a lesson
'Succession' Season 3 may have been just two episodes in, but the drama shown makes it feel like the latest season has seen quite the mileage. The previous episode saw the four siblings in one room discussing the way forward. If there was anything present, it was the doubts, and if there was anything missing, it was the faith.
The dysfunctionality was on full display as they squabbled among themselves to see where their battle against Logan (Brian Cox) would head. The episode ended with Shiv (Sarah Snook) now taking the role of a 'President' at Waystar, however, it is still unclear as to what her role would be and how this fractures Logan's relationship with Gerri (J.Smith-Cameron). While Shiv might be happy with the role, there's no denying that she was smarting from Kendall's (Jeremy Strong) comment about her not being ready to don the cap yet, and for that matter, she's not forgotten her father's quips from earlier.
Will Shiv exact revenge on Kendall and Logan?
Now that she's President, Shiv has a chance to get back at Kendall and perhaps use the power to teach her father a lesson as well. He had previously overlooked her when he wanted to transfer the power and this time it went to his General Counsel. The plan would be to kill two birds with one stone, and by the looks of it, Shiv pulling off something sneaky shouldn't come as a surprise. The first action she had after news of Gerri as CEO being leaked was to see if she could link up with Kendall.
The official synopsis for episode 3 reads: "With the DOJ at the door, Logan summons his arsenal, while Tom makes a potentially life-changing offer; Kendall becomes obsessed with his own takedown." The second half of the synopsis hints at Kendall's imminent implosion. He's already lost the support of his siblings and will just obsess over the fact that he may have someone gunning to set him back.
'Succession' Season 3 airs Sundays 9 pm ET on HBO.
