OK, Whoa — We Need to Break Down the Shocking Twists From Succession's Season 3 Finale

Watch out! This post contains spoilers.

HBO’s Succession closed out its third season with a dramatic finale that viewers were SO not ready for on Sunday night. After a season full of power grabs and high-stakes moves, episode nine of Succession delivers some unexpected plot twists that result in the ultimate betrayal of the Roy siblings — Roman (Kieran Culkin), Shiv (Sarah Snook), and Kendall (Jeremy Strong) — and gives Shiv’s husband, Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen), the last laugh.

One of the biggest twists from the finale is undoubtedly Logan Roy’s (Brian Cox) negotiated deal where he ends up selling his company, Waystar RoyCo (considered the centerpiece of Succession), to tech entrepreneur Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard) — which both secures its future and ends any chance of passing the company down to its heirs. This is then followed by Tom’s backstabbing decision to warn Logan of his children’s “full coup” against him where they attempt to push him out of the company for good. In the end, Tom sells out Shiv to solidify his place at the top of the Waystar RoyCo ladder.
