'Succession' Season 3 Finale: Kendall's death to Gerri's firing, 3 plots to wait for
The promo for 'Succession' Season 3 doesn't shed too much light on Kendall, but the episode titled 'All the Bells Say' has a lot to tie-up
'Succession' Season 3 is all set to come to an end next weekend and the audience fans will be keen to see how things end, or start for the Roys. In a season that has seen things go from horribly bad to catastrophically worse for the media giant's family members, the final episode draws most storylines to a close while also setting up an unpredictabe future.
Each key character on the show have had their arcs explained. For starters, Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Tom's (Matthew Macfadyen) relationship is pretty much a complicated one, but the developments in the latest epsiode hint that they "don't love each other, but love each other". Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Gerri (J Cameron-Smith) are in dire straits with their affair now out in the open after the youngest Roy pulls a booboo by sending an image of his d*** to his dad instead of Gerri. Kendall just might die. The season has been building up to explain his mental state and that might just be the key plotline in the finale.
The promo doesn't shed too much light on Kendall, but the episode titled 'All the Bells Say' has a lot to tie up. Ahead of the finale, we take a look at the three plotlines the finale might shed light on:
Logan Roy and the deal with Lukas Matsson
Logan (Brian Cox) and Lukas (Alexander Skarsgard) finally have that meeting that sees them discuss the acquisition of the streaming platform. The latter is clear with his views as to what he intends to do and also tells Logan to buckle up. There will be two questions that need to be answered: Will the Roys manage to get a solid deal? And irrespective of the result, how will this impact the relationship with Sandie and Stewy who were already burned that the family didn't let them in on the initial discussions.
Will Kendall Roy die?
The painful 30 seconds in the final minute of Episode 8 all but hinted that Kendall was at the end of his tether. It wasn't an easy ride for the character in Season 3, but he was not spared despite waving the white flag and telling his father that he wanted nothing to do with the company.
That his father made Kendall's son taste the food thinking it was poisoned was probably the dagger that went the deepest. The final sniper shot was when he brought up the past of his son killing an employee. Kendall wasn't a pretty sight as he was shown to slowly drown in the pool and with zero glimpses of the character in the promo of episode 9, is it a subtle hint that Kendall didn't make it?
Gerri to be fired?
As unfortunate as it may be, it does appear that Gerri is one to suffer the most out of Roman's screwup. With Shiv already consulting her about the possibility of launching a sexual harassment complaint against Roman much to the interim CEO's chagrin, things do look grim for the former General counsel. It also remains to be seen how this ends for Roman, who at the end of the day just wants a relationship.
'Succession' Season 3 airs Sundays 9 pm ET on HBO.
