    Im wondering if that wasn’t discussed between Logan and Kendall. I lean blindside, but the setup is there if they want to take it.

    I admit I don't know shit about how corporate boardrooms work, but is there any chance that Kendall could siphon votes from the bearded douchebag and help logan stay in power?

    Logan loves a fight. Be interested to see what this show looks like with Logan out of power.

    They only way this turn makes any logical sense is if he's already in bed with Stewie :twocents: . Doesn't mean it will play out that way in a TV show though, but Succession seems to stay in the realm of reality for the most part.

    I don't see how Logan stays in power, and will lucky to stay out of jail, going forward. He was already asked to step down by major shareholders prior to the Kendall bombshell.

    Yeah there should be zero chance of the Roys maintaining control of their company. It was already 50/50 but this would definitely push the vote away from them. I assume Kendall also has shares he will move to the Stewie group on the vote. And now Logan's wife might be leaving him and voting against him too.

    Guessing Kendall gets to be CEO out of this. Stewie and Sandy just seem to want controlling interested and Sandy and Logan are enemies so sure they'd go along with Kendall's plan.

    Didn't think this show was great before this season, it's great now.

    That is just a reach beyond believability. He cares about control and power more than anything so him losing his company isn't an outcome he wants and any situation after this he would maintain controlling ownership would be bullshit.

    it may not be where the show goes with it but I think it’s incorrect to call it beyond believability.
     
  23. Kendall sort of killed a guy and Logan knows this, has this not been mentioned?

    what’s the play using that for Logan? Above all he wants his company/legacy in family hands
     
  25. I do not know what the play is but eventually in storytelling things that have been built up that much do not just get ignored. They had a whole episode where they went to their family and he gets fucked up and leaves them a note which I do not believe has been resolved unless I am forgetting something which is entirely plausible

    It can certainly come back and bite Kendall in the ass but i dont think Logan can use it as ammo. He's part of the conspiracy now ...
     
  28. That's true, wasn't really thinking about it. Finished it at like 5 am last night on my day off while drunk but who knows, it is still a smoking gun that will come out soon enough though. Chekov's dead waiter/driver etc

    finished season 2 last night. What a great show. Plenty of likes to go around.

    Loved the bagging on Greg in the finale. "Benign Fungus could be the name of your memoir" and the statement that $5 million is terrible because you can't retire but there's no point in working was hilarious.

    I don't think he wanted it to happen, but I'm pretty sure that smile was partly out of pride that Kendall had turned into a killer, and partly "Let's fucking go"

    That and the "JV Billions" post or whatever. Billions was a good show, but the writers are hellbent on killing it by making every fucking character speak in parables every fucking second now and it's just not interesting.

    This show is way beyond anything in its class.

    Just binged season 2. I don’t think it’s been mentioned but in a real situation like this, Kendall would be as dead as his dad by saying what he did in the press comferenxe. He’d be taking them both down. By saying the CEO/chairman whatever personally signed off on all this, he’d 100% be tying himself, COO, to that anchor.

    They can go either way with it, but I thought at the meeting on the yacht where Logan starts by proposing himself as the skull and then let’s everybody say “no, no, no” was a setup for he knows it has to be him (especially after the investor face time saying the same) and the extension of that was he pushed Ken into doing what he did in order to carry out that plan because he knows it’s the best way to keep the company in the family. I could see them going that way.

    Just watched the finale, my initial thought was that Logan instructed Kendall to do that. Especially after he looks over at Shiv. I got the vibe that he knew they weren’t happy Kendall was being sacrificed, so he was using Kendall to sacrifice himself instead and keep the family happy, while also knowing he might be losing power soon anyway. Could be totally wrong, but that was my first instinct.

    Not really. Season 4 of billions' dialogue is absurd. Every fucking line is part of a parable, idiom, or semi-obscure pop culture reference
