With is the most opportunistic, who could best use it and who should be catastrophically misled by it are the three most important factors in determining Sequel season 3† The Roy family, owner of the media company Waystar Roy Co., is the main storyline of the succession. LoganRoy, the leader of the family, seems to be doing less well.
His four children were politically engaged, among others Shivaauthoritative Kendallrebellious Romanas well as his exiled eldest son Connor† Each of them, having varying degrees of attachment to the company, begins to prepare for a life without the father and begins to compete for positions of authority in it.
During HBO’s succession, fragile alliances and uncontrolled egos rule the corporate world. By creating a story with characters who are as big and daring as his goals, the series creator Jesse Armstrong solidifies its position among some of the greatest television programs of all time. We will always remember the executives of the fictional media company Waystar Royco.
Sequel Season 3 turns the protagonists into characters who earn our curiosity and sympathy by filtering them through a spinning lens of luxury, greed and self-interest. See which ones can be distinguished as the best at what they do.
1. Logan Roy
The Roy family monarch does not intend to give up the crown any time soon. He’d rather let his kids blow each other off with scraps than hand over the inheritance to someone he doesn’t think he deserves. Logan will probably never actually be fired as CEO until he dies of a terminal illness or has a deteriorating frame of mind. Which is really hard!
Logan, played by Brian Cox, comes out on top in Season 3. He beats Kendall, triumphs at the shareholders’ meeting, survives the Justice Department investigation, but for what seems like the last time, three ambition-driven kids outsmart three children. His story has always been one of triumph, but in Season 3 of Succession, when the stakes are too high than ever, he looks particularly “bulletproof,” as Lukas describes it.
Logan Roy is indeed a legend that is rarely matched. No matter what they think they had on him, its premeditated brutality makes it incredibly difficult for his children to beat him.
He manipulates the Waystar pyramid to create the dishonest and deceitful, make the slightest suggestion of turning against him as a career-ending proposal. Even though he is mean, explosive and always curtwe still enjoy his psychological tricks.
2. Tom Wambsgans
It’s worth dwelling on the story of Tom going to jail, which contributed little to the overall storyline of Season 3 but ultimately impacted everything. Tom went off his Shiv loves man to the much more powerful person of the Roy family outside of Logan.
Tom volunteered to help with the fall earlier this season when the DOJ probe loomed and jail time was possible for at least just a few key executives. He did this to show his loyalty to Waystar Royco and also the larger Roy family. Tom, played by Matthew Macfadyen, is irrelevant from the moment he joins the cast as Shiv’s lover in season one. That changed with the end of the third season.
Tom, a Twin Cities native who came out of nowhere, struggles constantly to catch up with the Roys. As he gets blow after blow, Greg, the only person he has any control over, is dragged next to him. Tom presents himself to Logan as that of the issue’s public image, should it come to that, including as a former head of a cruise division. Logan tells him it won’t happen, but still be son-in-law gets a lot of favor by doing so.
Logan might have survived the siblings’ attack if Tom hadn’t warned him. He decides to prioritize his goals for the first time, just as Shiv certainly would have decided if their circumstances had changed.
3. Greg Hirsch
Greg was arguably the most naive of the Succession protagonists at the start of the show. cousin Greg appears to be the only surviving kinsman who would have been on Logan Roy’s better side other than Connor. Logan couldn’t even remember his name, as he would have grown up just outside the Roy family’s tight-knit circle of lies.
Greg has been infected by his involvement with them since he came into their ranks, and as a result, he now fears the justice, Logan’s anger and Tom’s terrifying affection. Near the end of Season 3, when Tom urges Greg to foolishly guide him further into the corporate fire, Greg gets his real heat test.
He moves away from the infinite middle, but towards the bottom of something like the top, wherever that might be, because among the more than 20 of his own Gregs are waiting for him. He’s not sure what could be.
Where things stand, he can wait and see, take full control of a Buffalo theme park, defend himself against the Greenpeace case and keep an eye on Comfrey. That was quite the comeback for the youngster who previously had to crawl to a doorman for money to pay for his taxi ticket.
4. Connor Roy
The Eldest son would have the most Connor-esque week possible, including both a major win and several humiliating failures. On the negative side, Lukas Matsson wants to stop people like him and has not been informed of the proposed merger of equals.
Connor Roy, a character created by Alan Ruck, seems to be the rotten apple of the Roy family. Connor, Logan’s only son after his first wife, feels neglected and undervalued. This boast often makes his speech incomprehensible, and his haughtiness rivals that of his brother Kendall.
He adamantly claims to be brighter than everyone else in the room, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. While Connor’s diatribes may suggest latent intelligence, he lacks humility, curiosity, and eagerness to learn.
However, Connor, the eldest son, has now understood where… he is in the hierarchy. While Kendall’s intervention kept him from saying everything he wanted to, he still closes the season with a shot at the presidency with his amazing first lady next to his shoulder. All the other Roy kids would probably want to trade places with him at this point.
