'Succession' Season 4, episode 9 dropped a significant clue concerning the finale

Succession‘s penultimate episode ever left us with some massive questions: Will the Waystar-GoJo deal really undergo? Who will turn into CEO? And naturally, most significantly, what is going on to occur to the Roy siblings?

Whereas we will not reply these questions simply but, we can make an especially educated guess about the place the Succession collection finale will take us. And it is all because of a fast line of dialogue from Roman (Kieran Culkin) on the way in which to Logan’s (Brian Cox) funeral.


‘Succession’: The ten most horrifying moments from Logan’s funeral

Whereas driving to the funeral service, Roman asks his siblings, “Did you guys get Mother’s invitation for a ‘Caribbean air clear?’” Apparently, their mom, Caroline Collingwood (Harriet Walter), is planning a tropical trip to recuperate considerably from Logan’s dying. Shiv (Sarah Snook) is skeptical — “Oh, Mother simply all of a sudden needs to Mother now?” — and Kendall (Jeremy Sturdy) is a “exhausting no.” Nonetheless, Succession being Succession, it is extremely seemingly the Roys will find yourself on this journey anyway.

For starters, when Succession mentions an upcoming occasion — like Connor’s (Alan Ruck) marriage ceremony, the presidential election, or Logan’s funeral — it at all times follows via on exhibiting it to us. The present has additionally made a sample of internet hosting its season finales in lavish worldwide places: a fortress within the English countryside for Season 1, a yacht off the coast of Croatia for Season 2, and a Tuscan villa for Season 3. A visit to the Caribbean is most undoubtedly in line with this sample. Plus, Succession sleuths on Reddit(opens in a brand new tab) declare forged filmed in Barbados, and an Esquire profile on Kieran Culkin(opens in a brand new tab) references a “remaining weeklong journey to movie the final scenes of the ultimate episode of Succession,” that means a minimum of a few of the Roys seemingly shall be touring to the Caribbean in any case.

Probably the most fascinating a part of Roman’s query is much less so the Caribbean point out and extra so the outline of the journey as an “air clear.” This phrasing means that the journey will not actually be a soothing trip: If something, it is extra of an opportunity for the Roys to clear the air with one another following weeks of emotional turmoil. Given the whole lot Kendall, Shiv, and Roman have finished to one another this season, seems like we’re in for one final spectacular Roy trip blow-up. Carry it on.

The collection finale of Succession airs Could 28 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.(opens in a brand new tab)
