Last week, the Roys fought their way out of the corner and Kendall refuted Gil Eavis and Shiv to convince a victim not to testify. But at the end of the episode, Logan made it clear that his clan had not won the fight yet and told Shiv they still needed to bring a "blood sacrifice". Our employees advise to the best of our ability who this might be.
Miles Surrey : The only thing that speaks against Tom is the succession of as a "blood sacrifice" that it is also a bit obvious . Throughout the season ̵
Logan loves nothing more than tormenting his kids mentally, and is there a better test of his daughter's loyalty than asking her to throw Tom to the wolves? After all, Tom is actually responsible for covering up the clutter of cruise liners – and his own appearance before the Senate prompted a Waystar associate to call him a man with "two assholes." And cousin Greg had enough evidence to bury his twisted mentor, he was so ready. Tom is an indelible character – it helps that he looks like Peyton Manning has reached his definitive business after franchising a few more Papa Johns – but his "victim" would provide a compelling cautionary tale. The attempt to become a Roy is an unfortunate undertaking that will only lead to self-destruction. This Fly Guy can learn the hard way by landing directly in a prison cell.
Paolo Uggetti : Nothing would be more cruel to us, the observers, if our beloved Greg "Gregory" "The Egg" deer turned out to be the sacrificial lamb that led to becomes altar of its own making. In a way, this has been set up all the time. Greg came into the family as an outsider, and Tom used that lever against him to make him a criminal caddy. But now that he's part of the Inner Circle – goodbye to Ewan's $ 250 million – his roots in the cabal are not yet deep. It makes him the perfect scapegoat and unlike Tom, he is literally a blood relatives . Greg was the one checking the boxes of the missing files, and putting pressure on some of the files, he also proved that he was the closest to destruction. I think Greg is going to be thrown under the bus, trying to use his extra evidence to his advantage and then getting the rest of the Roys involved in the scandal. Nobody will get off unharmed; Greg is just the first of the dominoes to fall.
Kate Knibbs : As a lawyer, Gerri is logically the right person to say that the company takes this seriously while protecting the actual family. From the point of view of narration, in which the first season concentrates on Kendall and the second on Shiv, we are preparing for Roman SZN next year. Gerri is currently Roman's biggest ally and someone he really cares about. To put them in danger would increase the commitment to the funniest Roy.
Ben Lindbergh : Logan has not rescued Kendall from his manslaughter confusion because of paternal love. He covered up the crime for a few selfish reasons: to get Kendall out of the takeover bid to avoid a family scandal and – perhaps – to keep Kendall as potential nonsense. Logan was pleased to torture his son throughout the season, first strangling him at the meeting with Stewy and Sandy, then his recommendation to keep Vaulter ignoring him and later taking him home to Andrew Dodds just to see him squirm and remind him of the lever he holds. When Gil asked Logan about Shadow Logs last week, he immediately threw Kendall to the Wolves of Congress, just as Tom had tried Bill. This occasional verbal drive – "You can talk to him" – has denied Logan's true intentions.
Kendall is close enough to Logan to satisfy the bloodlust of the public, and now that Logan seems to have written off him as a possible successor, there is little professional cost to cut him out of the business. Moreover, there is no shortage of not deadly dirt, with which Kendall could be discredited or kept quiet: drug use, shoplifting, tail pictures. For Logan, Kendall is the perfect type of case. And for fans of Succession it would be a devastating, well-made turn if Kendall behaved like Logan's lapdog all season, being abused and thrown away.
