Succession‘s endgame is upon us, and it’s still anybody’s guess who will come out on top.
HBO has released a sneak peek at next Sunday’s series finale (9/8c), and it sets the stage for a final showdown for control of Waystar between siblings Kendall, Roman and Shiv. The penultimate episode ended with Kendall and Roman preparing to go up against Shiv (who’s aligned herself with GoJo CEO Lukas Matsson) at a Waystar board meeting to decide the fate of the GoJo deal. (Read our full recap here.) And in the preview, we see a concerned Shiv walking into that board meeting as Matsson warns: “We’re gonna cut s–t close to the bone. We’re gonna get right f–king in there. It’s gonna get nasty.”
Even Kendall and Roman seem to be at odds in the finale, with Roman declaring, “Dad said it would be me” to take the reins at Waystar, with Kendall countering: “If we want to hold onto this company for us, we have to go into battle with our own version of the future… with a king.” (And we’re guessing he’s nominating himself for the throne.)
Also spotted in the preview: Shiv perhaps trying to mend fences with her estranged husband Tom (“I know that we’ve said the worst things… but I just wanted to get a few things straight”); Stewy making an appearance at the board meeting, along with Uncle Ewan; Connor and Willa laughing; the return of Caroline; and Matsson screaming in anger. Hmmm… does the Nordic tech bro not get his hands on Waystar after all?

I am so looking forward to this.
I’m still wondering if the creators knew that GoJo is a real company. They are the makers of Purell, and many other products.
They would have found out when the production and studio had to clear the usage of the company’s name way back when writing Season 3.
I honestly can’t decide who I want to “win” this battle. They are all horrible people but there is also something sympathetic about all of them. It is a shame they can’t overcome their upbringing and all, including Connor, join together to make some real changes.
No no no. I don’t want it to end!!!
It’s just sad that these people really believe any of this will make them happy. In the end they will still be alone and miserable. Much like their father. Don’t get me wrong, I love the show, the acting is great, but like most characters in the series that I love so much they are all so tragic.
