On the finish of final season, the three Roy siblings (excluding Connor, who was off convincing Willa to marry him with the saddest proposal and acceptance ever) had determined to crew as much as attempt to take down their expensive previous dad. They have been going to announce he was taking a step again from his management place and launch a joint assertion on his failing well being, however Tom shared this data with Logan, who was prepared to chop the children off on the cross, metaphorically talking. He additionally reduce them off much less metaphorically, signing a brand new divorce settlement with their mom Caroline (Harriet Walter) that eliminated monetary protections for the children. Logan has at all times been ruthless, however Tom could not have presumably predicted that stage of retaliation for the siblings’ tried coup.
Shiv and Tom’s marriage has been rocky from the beginning, largely as a result of she undermined the complete factor by basically cornering Tom into an open marriage on their wedding ceremony evening. She was having an affair beneath the guise of a “corridor cross” earlier than their nuptials, however that wasn’t fairly sufficient. Tom would by no means be sufficient. Shiv has been downright abusive to him however he always dotes on her anyway, like a kicked pet that comes again for extra. Tom’s betrayal was apparently the ultimate straw for Shiv, because the season 4 premiere sees them going by way of a trial separation and headed for divorce. Poor Tom lastly is aware of the reply as to whether the unhappy he feels with out Siobhan is lower than he feels when he is together with her, and no, it is not. It is simply him and his canine, Mondale, on their lonesome in that large condominium, and he appears bereft.
