Spoilers for 'Succession' Season 3 Episode 9 'All the Bells Say'

With 'Succession' Season 3 complete, there are quite a few storylines that will carry over to Season 4. The finale ended with Logan (Brian Cox) burning the Roy children by letting GoJo takeover Waystar-Royco and the media mogul cashing out. In his mind, it was the most logical decision to make, but that also meant surrendering most decision-making to Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard). With this, Shiv (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin), and Kendall (Jeremy Strong) are powerless to stop their father.

Tom tipping off Logan about the Roy kids' power move saw the old man revise the divorce deal with his ex-wife that strips the kids of their controlling interest in the company. With the deal now pretty much going Logan's way, the move does have an impact on all of the kids and we take a look at the possible storylines in 'Succession' Season 4.

Kendall might just stay away from it all

It has been a rather tumultuous time for Jeremy Strong's Kendall and he suffers a mental breakdown for the third time in as many episodes. Although he does side with Roman and Shiv in the final minutes of the episode, it sure appears that he's drained and he'd want nothing more than to be done with the family, especially the business. Mental health is a priority for Kendall and that might be his storyline in Season 4.

Shiv and Tom's relationship ends?

The reassuring kiss on the forehead does nothing for Shiv as she's yet to figure out whether it was Tom who actually leaked the plan. If she does indeed find out, that relationship will be pretty much done and for all the times Tom's been made fun of, especially during the time they get cozy, he's got the ultimate revenge. Shiv's pregnancy might be explored in Season 4 as well with the couple planning to freeze the egg. But with all that's happening, only time will tell how their relationship pans out as she guns for revenge.

Gerri and Roman are done?

It looks like Gerri and Roman are done with their relationship. The final nail in the coffin for Roman was when Gerri turned down his fervent plea of convincing Logan not to make the move and cash out handing Waystar over. On her part, Gerri is only interested in making sure how the finances go and that shows she's shut Roman out of her life. The interim CEO had quite the steamy relationship with the younger Roy, but it sure looks done and dusted.

Connor sides with Logan

Alan Ruck had his share of screentime in the finale. His girlfriend agrees to marry him and he still harbors his aspirations to become the next POTUS. With Logan and GoJo merging, Connor just may side with his father and see how it benefits him. More importantly, he will be keen to stay on his father's good side and that might be his journey in Season 4.
