The Serie successionfrom HBO and available on HBO Max, not only recounts a network of sophisticated intrigues in the financial world. Also a frontal war between the members of a despicable family. Which makes her quite a rarity in the world of great television stories. In its fourth season, the brothers Roy they will confront their father with all the weapons — legal or not — at their disposal. The production is interested in delving into a corrupted sense of success. Which turns each decision of the characters into an ethical question that is usually answered in the worst way. Something that the new chapters will undoubtedly show in their most extreme consequences.
The end of the previous installment made it clear that the balance of triumph leaned towards Logan (Bryan Cox). Which means that his children will have to unite and beat him, break him, or at least negotiate. On the other hand, Kendall (Jeremy Strong) will have to recover from his latest emotional downfall. AND Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) decide whether to continue in that precarious alliance or go their separate ways. Either option benefits your father. In particular, because with the future sale of Waystar Royco the patriarch would deliver a blow from which neither would recover.
Succession is only available on HBO Max
But will it happen that way? succession keep your secrets well. In the huge map of plot tricks, each character still has a hidden advantage. So, the big question to answer is what will happen now that Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) gave Logan the advantage. Were the brothers completely defeated? Will the company be sold without being able to prevent it? We leave you four theories of what could happen in the future, and expected, next season of succession.
Tom’s rise above his wife and brothers-in-law in succession
Definitely, Tom will be one of the central characters in the next installment of succession. After betraying his wife Shiv and supporting your father-in-law in an unexpected move, you are likely to gain noticeable new relevance. Whether in the form of the desired promotion in Waystar Royco who aspires or to enter the close circle of the visible head of the Roys. The truth is that his position in the middle of the board of influences of the series changed completely.
In the season finale of succession, Tom got two things at the same time. Give a frontal blow to Shiv, who always belittled and humiliated him. And make it clear that he also has personal plans for the future in the corporate world. The decision to betray the Roy It was not the result of a sudden impulse. In fact, it became clear that it was the final step in a long journey to build a path to real power.
what are you planning Tom, so far fancy sideline and comic relief in the story? The character spent a good part of his time observing everything that happened in the midst of battles of intrigue and deception from a safe distance. Will he put what he has learned into practice in the shadow of the great figures around him?
A confrontation with his father on his own ground
The fourth season of succession will occur in the territory of a tactic between Shiv, Roman and Kendall that allows them to face their father from places that the latter does not expect. Not only for the desire for revenge, but for a more practical benefit: maintaining their social and economic status. Would the decision to create a new company together be the answer to the characters’ dilemma? Foster a precarious but effective society?
Everyone has enough knowledge to carry out something similar. Shiv handles the essential contacts to build an immediate competition against Waystar Royco. Roman He has the ability to counteract any attempt to boycott the plans to be developed.
On the other hand, though Kendall going through his lowest moment, he has considerable skill in corporate strategy. Particularly, with his knowledge of the world of communications. The trio have the resources to found a new company, which would take the well-known Roy feud to a much more complex place in season four of succession. The best counteroffensive against the frontal dominance of his father.
A possible new ally in the intrigues of succession
Logan Roy You have three clear options. Selling and removing their children from the company, something that already seems definitive. Negotiate with a new board of directors at your convenience, which will occur during the purchase process. And the most effective: resort to a third ally that you can manipulate at will. Would this hypothetical new element in dispute be a baby conceived with his assistant? Kerryplayed by Zoe Winters?
It sounds like a crazy theory, but actually, the Roy They have already considered it. At least, Connor (Alan Ruck) did so by suspecting that his father’s insistence on eating maca root was a way to ensure his fertility. Even more singular is that both Shiv as Roman and Kendallthey agreed that conceiving another child would be the most unexpected move of all.
This is the ideal setting for succession: an heir that Logan Roy would control without any resistance. Kerry she would support any decision — as the legal guardian of the future baby — and the child would be brought up under the influence of the ruthless patriarch.
Connor claims his rightful power
The third season of succession left several crucial narrative twists. One of the most intriguing was the insistence of Connor for recognizing his place in the succession of his assets. Will the eldest son finally take action and stand up to the rest of the Roy?
He certainly has little power for such a thing right now. He would also have to start by marrying Willa (Justine Lupe), which is the final decision that would underpin her political career. But if one takes into account that Connor You have shown that you have personal ambitions and that you want to be recognized, that would be a point to consider. One that would unbalance the absolute control that, right now, Logan has.
This possible scenario, in turn, could include one that ends up being the most surprising season twist of all. Will the family head die and leave the way open for Connor in full sale of the consortium? With notorious health ailments and hints about his death, it would perhaps be an abrupt plot line, but not surprising. At the height of the great moments of successiona series designed to defy all speculation.
