We hope this is not the ultimate “f–k off.”
Succession‘s season finale is on Dec. 12 and it looks like it is going to bring the high-stakes drama to the bitter end. The teaser for the episode “All the Bells Say” has us worried there might be a slaughtering of the lambs situation for Kendall (Jeremy Strong).
In the brief teaser, the Roy family members make dramatic entrances except the ultimate black sheep of the family. Kendall, are you pulling the wool over our eyes or is this a legit exit stage right in one of the most popular dramas in HBO history?
Last we saw the group, they were gathered at their mother’s luxe family wedding in Italy. But, we all know weddings are not really the happiest of affairs for Kendall, who killed the cater waiter at Shiv’s wedding—as Logan (Brian Cox) evilly reminds him. Talk about calling the kettle black.
The episode closes with Kendall seemingly inebriated and floating face down on a pool floatie. The image makes it hard not to imagine a dark ending as he passes out in the sun and a beer bottle begins to slowly sink downward.
This could be the sign of many things, but mainly a downward spiral for the whole family dare we say.
“I don’t wanna be rude because you are a legend,” Lukas (Alexander Skarsgård), the edgy gamer billionaire tells Logan during a meeting. “You’re sinking like a lead balloon…If this is a family thing, I get it. Business wise, it’s time for you to beef up or sell out.”
You can chew on that “boar on the floor” Logan, but we have a feeling it might not be so tasty.
The Succession finale airs Sunday Dec. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. In the meantime, take the poll above to decide if Kendall is alive or swimming with sharks.
