Probably the most WTF 'Succession' quotes of the ultimate season

So there we’ve got it. After 4 seasons, a complete lot of scheming and a large dying, Succession has now come to an finish.

And though each season was full of strains that will likely be ceaselessly etched into our reminiscences, Season 4 actually had some doozies.

From Greg (Nicholas Braun) roasting Uncle Logan (Brian Cox) to Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Shiv (Sarah Snook) destroying one another emotionally, listed here are among the most WTF quotes from Succession’s remaining season.


I really like ‘Succession’, however there’s 1 tiny planning element I can not get my head round

“The place are your youngsters? The place’s all of your youngsters, uncle Logan? In your large birthday?” — Greg, episode 1

Not many individuals might get away with saying one thing so brutal to Logan himself, however by some means Greg – together with his bumbling, unthreatening appeal – will get away with it. In equity, Logan did ask to be roasted.

“The advantage of having a household that does not love you is you be taught to stay with out it.” — Connor, episode 2

In order for you very bizarre, and infrequently deeply tragic strains, Connor (Alan Ruck) is your man. He says this to his siblings the night time earlier than his marriage ceremony, earlier than following it up with this gem: “You are needy love sponges, and I am a plant that grows on rocks and lives off bugs that die within me.” Yikes.

“He by no means even appreciated me.” — Connor, episode 3

The season’s notorious episode three, which offers with Logan’s sudden dying throughout Connor’s marriage ceremony, is stuffed with harrowing moments. However probably the most quietly WTF line is likely to be Connor’s deadpan admission after first listening to the information of his dad’s dying.

“We’re calling her a taxi to the subway in order that she will go house to her little condo” — Marcia, episode 4

Oh, you’d forgotten how brutal Marcia (Hiam Abbass) will be? Her return in episode 4, when she kicks a distraught Kerry (Zoe Winters) out of Logan’s outdated condo, is a really clear reminder.

“Your earlobes are thick and chewy. Yeah, like barnacle meat.” — Tom, episode 5

That is the primary of a number of very WTF exchanges between Tom and Shiv, whose character trajectories might most likely be described as considerably rocky in Season 4. That is the second Tom flicks her ear after she tries to scuff up his white footwear.

“I despatched her a few of my blood. Half a litre frozen blood brick. As a joke.” — Matsson, episode 5

When potential Waystar purchaser Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) confesses to Shiv that he “is likely to be in a little bit of a pickle”, just about the very last thing we’re anticipating him to say is that he is been harassing his head of comms Ebba (Eili Harboe) by sending her massive portions of his personal blood. Shiv, who’s simply as taken again as us, instantly gives some sage recommendation: “Cease sending folks your blood.”

“You wanna play bitey?” — Shiv, episode 6

After the bizarre earlobe alternate in episode 5, Shiv’s mid-party suggestion that her and Tom play “bitey” – a sport the place they chunk one another’s arms on the similar time and see who provides in first – is a really bizarre, however kind of pure, extension. That is how Shiv and Tom do flirting, apparently.

“HR says I am the appropriate man for the job as a result of it appears like I care, however I do not.” — Greg, episode 7

Did Greg use to be a pleasant man? Possibly, however by Season 4 he is been absolutely corrupted. The best way he cheerfully boasts to Matsson about firing 100 folks is evident proof of that.

“I feel you’re incapable of affection. And I feel you’re perhaps not a very good particular person to have kids with.” — Tom, episode 7

Sadly, after the bizarre flirting and a really temporary reunion, Shiv and Tom’s relationship rapidly goes again downhill once more earlier than continuing to plummet to newer depths. All the alternate they’ve at their pre-election celebration is horrible, however this line – particularly provided that Shiv is secretly pregnant on the time – stings probably the most.

“If I lose, I need it accurately characterised as an enormous victory.” — Mencken, episode 8

That is potential future president Jeryd Mencken telling Roman how he desires a possible election loss “characterised”. Yep, it is horribly harking back to Trump’s baseless 2020 election fraud claims.

“Like, is that even true? Or is that like, a brand new place or a tactic?” — Tom, episode 8

That is Tom’s response moments after Shiv tells him she’s pregnant together with his baby. The 2 of them are so used to enjoying thoughts video games, and residing in a world the place everybody continuously has an angle, that Tom cannot even imagine his personal spouse when she tells him she’s pregnant.*

“Nothing issues, Ken. Nothing fucking issues. Dad’s useless and the nation’s only a large pussy ready to get fucked.” — Roman, episode 8

Roman’s bluntness is painful by this level on election night time. The one factor he cares about is getting Mencken elected so he’ll scrap the GoJo deal, and it is exhausting to select which a part of this alternate is extra disturbing: his remark about America or his repeated assertion that “nothing issues”.*

“If I see you breastfeeding, I’m gonna need to jerk off.” — Roman, episode 9

Nothing like some heartfelt phrases out of your brother after you announce your being pregnant.

“Marcia’s trying stylish. Yummy. Horny funeral girl. In the event you’re weirded out by that, wait ‘until I’ve intercourse together with her on dad’s coffin.” — Roman, episode 9

Roman is actually in peak gross-out mode on the day of his dad’s funeral.
