10 “I feel like we said you’re creative and you guys tend to be sarcastic”
After a three-month period between seasons, Season 4 begins with Roy Siblings developing a new media company called “The Hundred”. As Kendall describes his new project, “The Hundred is a Substack meets Masterclass.” The Economist Meets The New Yorker. Viewers will have to use their best imaginations to determine exactly what that means, but as usual, Kendall and the Roy siblings have a very clear vision, which can only be described in their own vocabulary.
The episode opens with the siblings examining some design ideas for the website as they give their design team some very unspecific critiques. Kendall lines throughout the season premiere Succession Full of business jargon, which he communicates in such a way that he appears both expert and utterly ignorant.

9 Greg’s date asks Logan to take a selfie
While the backbone of succession The season premiere might be the war drama Bidding, a minor side plot following Greg and his history that provides the perfect balance of humor. Greg brings a date, Bridget, to Logan’s birthday party, to which other characters suggest he may have met randomly on a dating app. Naturally, this sparked controversy for him on multiple levels, as he committed the serious crime of bringing an ordinary person into high society, and she was also not subjected to a thorough background check, leading Kerry to assume she could be there to gather information.
In a seemingly hilarious moment that occurs offscreen this episode, Bridget asks Logan Roy to take a selfie. Viewers of three full seasons of Succession He can probably imagine the level of response this would trigger from Logan, particularly in his grumpy mood throughout the season premiere. The plot line surrounding Greg and Bridget continues to escalate until Colin is finally forced to take her out. For fans who assumed Greg would win SuccessionEpisode 1 is not a good sign.
8 Logan watches night time news
While we’ve seen the way Logan decides what kind of content his media group produces, with special consideration for political commentary, it’s funny to see Logan watch his own channel. After his party, Logan watches the nightly news in a daze, offering no reaction to the violent affairs being discussed or even the more violent statistics being displayed at the bottom of the TV screen. Instead, Logan calls Cyd to complain about the news anchor, expressing that people watch the news at night and they should have a better looking anchor.
Funnily enough, the news story being aired is about ex-business partners tarnishing a family event with violence over a money dispute. While this may sound like it might offer Logan some perspective on how he spends his final days, he’s more interested in “and *** g” from “It looks like a ball sack in a wig. The end of Episode 1 reveals just how isolated Logan really is.
7 “This Isn’t F*** in ‘Shake Shack, Greg'”
Kerry wasn’t particularly expressive until the Season 4 premiere. With her elevated status, likely caused by the absence of siblings, she seems to have found some newfound confidence and added some flame to her manner of speaking. When Greg arrives with Bridget, Kerry takes her inner family out of Roy, and displays frustrations with him, to which Greg can only respond, saying, that he deserves a plus-one as a cousin.
“What is her full name? Is it random and ***? Random Bridget and ***?Kerry presses Greg about the matter, asking if she was the one whoApplications. It also makes the strong point that Logan’s house is not Shack’s place or an ideal place for Greg to take a random girl on a date. Bringing in a random person could lead to an information leak that could hurt the election. Or Logan’s business takeovers continue. It was a great opportunity for Kerry to get one for a family member.
6 “You are my friend. You are my best friend.”
In one of the great scenes in Succession In the premiere, Logan Roy strolls Central Park before settling into a diner, accompanied only by his bodyguard Colin. Despite not being the most vocal character, Colin has been with the family since season one and has been incredibly reliable and loyal. Logan pays his respects to him at dinner, saying, “you are my friend. You are my best friend. “
Logan does not often express admiration for those around him, but he seems to genuinely respect Colin, who responds with humility. Logan then provides insight into the way he believes himself to be more vulnerable and honest than he was before. Logan expresses how he views people as dwarf-sized monetary units, which, only when combined, can form a useful market for him. He also talks a bit about his death and his thoughts on what happens after death. This was one of Logan’s strongest scenes Succession was so far.
5 The disgusting brothers
Tom and Greg’s partnership in the “Devil’s Deal” that began in… succession The season three finale, resulted in more bro time for the popular duo. With Tom now separated from Shiv, the two call themselves the “Sickening Brothers”. While these two may want to portray themselves that way, and rumors have swirled that Tom is going out with models, it’s hard to believe that the nickname has any merit.
While the term makes for a funny recurring joke throughout the episode, it’s possible that Tom and Cousin Greg aren’t having the best of luck in the dating scene, with Tom still looking pretty battered from his time with Shiv. When Chief asks him what his nickname is Defeated Tom he just says “We drink drinks sometimesTom’s confidence and self-esteem have been so damaged by his marriage that nicknames like ‘The Goofy Brothers’ are all he has.
4 Connor wants to stay in the 1% in the polls
Connor Roy has been interested in politics from a young age, so he needs to stay in the conversation by sticking to his 1%. Connor’s presidential campaign has been one of the funniest subplots in the series since then Succession Season 2. The Season 4 premiere introduces an interesting new conflict for him. He wants to invest money holding the 1 percent, but he seems to be running out of it for the first time.
Willa is on board for her marriage to Connor after she fully admits to him that she doesn’t love him. Unfortunately for her, her wedding wish may have to be replaced with a celebration of jetpacks and bum fights. Connor would rather spend his money on his campaign than on the extravagant wedding she desires. Connor’s 1 percent is all he has to his name at this point, and he’s afraid going lower will make him a laughing stock, which is a ridiculously funny idea but also a pretty sad one.
3 Greg Romiges in the guest bedroom
Greg’s subplot with Bridget comes to a head off-screen, and only then does Greg admit that he “These halls are pollutedAt Logan’s house in one of the guest bedrooms. Greg makes the naive mistake of confessing to Tom, who convinces him that cameras are everywhere so Logan can review everything going on in his apartment later. Tom convinces Greg that he should come to Logan about what he did.
As the episode’s bidding war nears its climax, Greg works up the courage to tell Logan what he’s done. The worst part is that Greg pins the entire ordeal on Bridget, deflecting the blame from himself when he talks to Logan. According to Greg, off-screen, Logan called him “Disgusting and vilethough giving him a little grin. Greg pins the whole ordeal on Bridget, with some of the “tobacky idiot. “
2 “Congratulations on saying the biggest number you ever got, you idiots.”
Logan’s bidding war with the siblings ends the ring’s conflict and its main power moves, but seems to make way for more. He pushes Kendall and Shiv to move toward buying PGM, which Roman is hesitant about, stating that they shouldn’t let their desire to fight Logan get in the way of making smart moves. Roman also discourages Kendall from going straight to the $10 billion offer, instead of the $9.5, and is the only one of the siblings to consider what $500 million is worth to them.
The episode’s arc of the siblings, as well as Connor’s, seems to indicate the limited nature of their wealth for the first time. The season premiere seems to indicate that Logan’s kids will find themselves in a tight financial situation, as their emotions seem to get the best of them in a way he’ll never allow. Shiv and Kendall are clouded by their ambition and desire for revenge on Logan, and Connor spends all of his fortune on his ego.
1 Logan’s team roasts him
While waiting for phone calls related to the PGM acquisition, Logan notices an unfamiliar quiet in the room. At previous gatherings, that space might have been filled with bickering between Schiff and Roman. So he asks Logan around the room to see if anyone has a joke or if anyone is willing to toast him. Frank and Carl fail miserably. Greg throws some sausage, like, “Where are all your kids, Uncle Logan?” But it offers nothing to compete at the level Logan is looking for.
In ways Logan is unlikely to realize or admit, he misses his children. The dark, quirky humor they bring to the table is part of what they derive directly from Logan and Caroline’s parental influence. As much as Logan shows it, he enjoys the energetic, intelligent company of his children. He definitely misses her Succession Season 4.
