As we prepare for Succession season 4 to eventually arrive on HBO, we know we are looking at a slightly different world. After all, nothing is 100% the same as what it was one season ago. Logan has effectively found a right hand-man, but it isn’t anyone directly related to him. Instead, it is his son-in-law Tom. This character planted seeds of a positive relationship throughout season 3 and in the end, he’s the one who didn’t turn on him.
Now, Logan is preparing to sell off Waystar Royco, and neither Shiv, Roman, nor Kendall can do anything about — at least so it seems. (We’d throw Connor in here, but we’re not sure even Connor knows what is going on all of the time.)

Speaking via Deadline following the Emmy nominations on Tuesday, Brian Cox himself did offer up an interesting perspective on how Logan sees the world — and it is a reminder that Cox does see his character in a way that few others do:
“He’s truly finding a successor to his company … But [the kids] don’t step up to the plate. Everything is received with the children. They don’t’ have an original sensibility or gall, but you still love them.
“He’s a misanthrope, but one thing he does love is his children, and that provides a lot of conflict with him … He’s hoping they’ll do something original.”
The one thing that Logan seems to value the most is ambition, and he doesn’t feel like any of his kids right now have it in the right way. We actually do think it would be great to see one of the kids have some success on something truly independent, and it may show their father that he’s wrong to underestimate them. However, they have to prove this first, and so far most of the Roy children’s plans have sputtered out after a few short minutes. Unless Logan does let them back in (unlikely), they’re going to have plenty of time in season 4 to figure out where they stand in the world.
What do you most want to see when it comes to Logan’s story on Succession season 4?
