Succession Shocker: Logan Roy Dead, Leaving the Roy Empire in Turmoil.

Succession Shocker: Logan Roy Dead, Leaving the Roy Empire in Turmoil.

A seismic shift has occurred in the realm of Succession.

In a jaw-dropping twist during the third episode of the fourth season, HBO's critically acclaimed drama, Succession, delivers a game-changing moment. The episode, aptly named "Connor's Wedding," will be etched in television history as the one where Logan Roy meets his end.

The patriarch of the Roy family, Logan Roy (Brian Cox), founder and CEO of Waystar Royco, and the legendary L to the OG, has met his demise. The impact of Logan's death on Succession's narrative is monumental, surpassing any corporate deal or act of betrayal. It's akin to removing the king from a chessboard or even tossing the board aside, leaving the other pieces to wallow in emotional and financial turmoil.

What makes this moment truly intriguing is the series' bold approach to portraying Logan's death. There's no grand send-off for Logan. Instead, the audience experiences his death much like his children do: from a distance. Succession masterfully conveys that it's not the moment of Logan's demise that matters, but the reactions of his offspring.

As Logan's children - Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook), and Roman (Kieran Culkin) - are attending Connor's wedding, they receive a call from Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) onboard Logan's private jet. Tom breaks the news of Logan's collapse and allows the Roy siblings to say their last words to their father via his phone. The show emphasizes the physical and emotional distance between Logan and his children, adding tension to the unfolding drama.

Throughout the episode, Succession employs various techniques to heighten the impact of this pivotal moment. By juxtaposing the wedding celebration with Logan's death and reducing the musical score, the show intensifies the sense of horror and helplessness. The fact that Logan's death occurs in the third episode of the season, earlier than expected, and before a crucial deal with Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) is finalized, adds to the shock value.

In a clever parallel to the series' first episode, Logan's death forces the audience to recall his near-fatal stroke during his 80th birthday party. Succession reminds us that although Logan has previously seemed invincible, he is not immortal. By choosing not to show Logan's death on-screen, the series leaves viewers to grapple with their feelings about this tyrannical media titan.

As the series moves forward, the focus will be on the aftermath of Logan Roy's death and the ensuing struggle for power within the Roy family. The how and when of Logan's passing takes a back seat to the emotional and strategic fallout that will undoubtedly define the rest of the season. With this shocking turn of events, Succession has set the stage for an enthralling and unpredictable journey ahead.
