The writers give Roman some great one -liners.

I hate Shiv the character. Sarah Snook does a really nice acting job though. Kind of how I used to feel about Cersei Lannister.

re: 'Succession' HBO season 2 discussion thread
The space and terrace were definitely under construction. When Ken walked through the space the first time this episode it was being fitted out and there were ramps in place to move the glass in etc. I think it’s the office because the apartment building is an older building that was retrofitted with the apartments (the windows in Gregs apartment where not full glass curtain wall like in a newer office building).

What’s great with this show is how you’re not sure if Kendall was being real with Shiv or just more smoke and mirrors. I do think he is unhinged and was sorta asking for a safety net from her but....He could be throwing her off the scent too.

I know a lot of people seem to like Roman on here (and he has some great lines) but every smartass remark he makes with that smirk makes me want to punch him right in the mouth.
Having said that, Ken outing him for speaking with the biographer, and Logan’s reaction, last week set up the creepy call with Gerri this week. Bless his heart he has some serious issues!

But also, did you notice when the lockdown was going on because of the shooting, Logan was ONLY asking about Kendall and if Kendall was safe, not any of his other children. Makes you think he's playing shiv like a fiddle

As for Jerri and Roman, I think Jerri is an entirely normal person who is smart and driven and as put up with weirdos, creeps, and sexists to rise up to becoming a powerful media exec. She is treating Roman like all of the other men who got in her way over the past three decades.



Jerri seemed genuinely weirded out then turned on by insulting Roman

It's the perfect quid pro quo for the two of them. Jerri finally gets to say the things she has to hold back in the office and Roman finally found a woman who stimulates him


I also loved the subtle way the director introduced the scene by showing Jerri kicked up and wearing nylons. The camera angle showing her laid back in an almost intimate posture.

I think that was the intent as well. However, having Holly Hunter tell Logan she knew exactly what he was trying to accomplish with his bid should have slowed his roll a bit. He came across as being way too anxious.


Can we all take a moment and respect how awesome Holly Hunter looks after all these years?

Girl was sexy AF in her powersuit

I can’t remember if it was that scene or another, but we saw what channel Jerri watches at home when she’s interested in the news.

It’s not ATN

what was the gist of their phone call?


1. Roman wanted to vent about management training video
2. roman found an undiscovered talent in his team partner in the training exercise
3. roman wants to build the terror ride he dreamed up

roman wants to be dominated by a powerful woman to be stimulated

jerri realized she can gain some power by feeding Roman's sexual fanatasy, and she seemed to enjoy it too. Will be interesting to see if it goes any further between them

Roman and Gerri are gonna bang.

Logan is screwing Shiv over and if he was only thinking of it before, her reveal sealed it.

Kendall and Naomi would be good together even though she hates him.

I don't know what is mentally fricked with Roman, but I hope the next season delves into it w some flashbacks.

Greg is gonna end up on top.

Roman's gf knows Naomi and they thought she would be a good buffer w her. She is the most opposed.

That was a great episode. I wish they’d touch a little more on everyone’s reaction to Shiv.
