Logan’s toxic influence is all over the best episode of the season thus far. View production, box office, & company info. At breakfast Roman jokes that he was with Gerri while he masturbated in the other room. He demands a sharp and crisp image from everyone. Logan Roy: As my family knows only too well, I am, I ain't no master of the speechifying, but I would, uh I would just like to thank the Pierces for their hospitality. Connor Roy and Willa Ferreyra talk to Maxim Pierce as they are both into politics. They are surprised to see Naomi Pierce who flew in from California, who has made a special trip just for this weekend. Tom tries to keep her calm, but she mainly ignores him. As the Pierces question whether an alliance with Waystar Royco will tarnish their legacy, Kendall makes his case to Naomi Pierce. Tom Wamsgans is eager to find out what Shiv Roy has been up to, but she is preoccupied. Logan attempts to solidify his buyout of PGM at a weekend retreat at the Pierce family home, where Shiv, Roman and Connor veer from their carefully orchestrated roles.
It soon becomes clear that Connor is out of his league, as Maxim is much more knowledgeable. Fuck your people.
And fuck your peace pipe,” she says. This FAQ is empty. Shiv, however, flails in the spotlight. And, because all of that was some blend of devastating and scandalous, the episode allows us to laugh at the odd couple that is Connor (Alan Ruck) and Maxim (Perfect Strangers’ Mark Linn-Baker). Anyways, as Gerri (J. Smith Cameron) informs us, the “whole edifice” of the Pierce organization is crumbling due to a declined readership and, in a reflection of our current times, a general lack of interest in news that doesn’t operate first and foremost as entertainment.

Hiam Abbass’ Marcia has been mostly absent this season, though this episode shows her bucking against Logan’s micro-managing.
First, she aims for flattery and, in doing so, degrades ATN.
Rhea announces that Pierce family all had a private meeting earlier and will be having another private meeting between Nan and Naomi and they want Logan, Shiv, and Ken to meet them after breakfast. I wouldn’t have made her apologize.
Like with Gil Eavis, the idealists are happy to fall in bed with their enemies when the walls start closing in. It quickly becomes clear Roman came over to continue their erotic session.
That, as you might imagine, doesn’t go too well, especially once Tabitha demands some kind of autonomy in the situation.
But before the family will agree to anything, they are going to be spending the weekend with them. That’s what he’s doing to Shiv, who he wants to see work and suffer and grovel for her crown. But soon excuses himself along with Shiv, to take a call about their fake dog. As such, Logan orders everyone to make nice during an overnight stay, with Tom serving as “the straw man for the sins of ATN,” a role he’s willing to play.
Looking for some great streaming picks? It’s new money vs. old money, and it makes for some amusing cultural clashes between the brutish Roys and the lyrical Pierces, who meet while striding towards each other in a scene that can’t help but evoke “The Bizarro Jerry.”. But let’s rewind for a second: Tern Haven is the name of the Pierce estate, the setting for most of this week’s episode, and, though it’s no Austerlitz, it certainly helps distinguish the PGM overlords from the Roys.Where the Roys are all glass, steel, and swears, the Pierces are wood, candlelight, and classic literature.
He lives in Chicago, occasionally writes plays, and was a talking head in Best Worst Movie, the documentary about Troll 2. He informs everyone he wishes to go by Gregory from here on out. Succession Wiki is a FANDOM TV Community.
Logan doesn't like some of them but agrees anyway. She takes Tom outside and sounds near tears when she declares, overwhelmed with emotion, “I really want this.” That leads to her grand mistake, which director Mark Mylod eases us into with a slow, agonizing zoom on Shiv, who’s suffocating beneath her tightening anxiety.
“That’s not quite how I do things,” Logan intones.
“Romulus, when you laugh do it at the same volume as everyone else.” I feel seen. Logan’s relying on Shiv, meanwhile, to help him work over matriarch Nan, as the pair share similar politics.
Meanwhile, Shiv and Tom are talking to Mark, who proudly announces he will be getting a second PhD. Add the first question.
The family leaves soon after by helicopters. Marcia insists on another cup and insults Logan's preference for wine. Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed. And, though Kendall might have saved the day, he still wakes up caked in his own shit. [Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Succession” Season 2, Episode 5, “Tern Haven,” including the ending.]. But let’s talk about the other factor that helped Waystar secure Pierce: Kendall (Jeremy Strong).
Logan knows his words can move mountains. She asks for board seats, editorial protections, and even a demotion for Tom—“I won’t have that man overseeing our news”—all of which Logan agrees to. This episode takes place 6 weeks after the last.
They’re amenable to Logan’s $24 billion offer, but they’re also inquiring about the “moral character” of the Roy clan, which, honestly just feels like them covering their asses ahead of a deal they know they need to make. The question of who will succeed Logan comes up, but he declines to answer.
“Once you’re done you won’t have to waste the 12 seconds it takes to look up something on Wikipedia,” Shiv cracks.

Still, for all of her fuck-ups, her opinion is cherished by Nan.
He won’t, however, publicly announce Shiv as his successor, which causes Nan to pull back. Christ, the Pierces are insufferable. We, We appreciate your forbearance. If there exist bizarro versions of each of the Roys in the Pierce family—we’ll get to Connor and Maxim soon, I swear—Kendall’s is Naomi Pierce (Annabelle Dexter-Jones), a fellow addict who’s had as many public dust-ups as he’s had private ones. Only to get caught when Mark asks him the author and what it's about. Instead, he heads up to his room alone, and in silence.
