Think about waking as much as a scorpion as a candy morning-after current. Or perhaps you usher in a birthday with a handwritten card from Dad, asking you to fuck off. Sounds hardcore proper? Effectively, that’s the way it’s completed on Succession. Whether or not you are a Kendall babygirl, a Romuplus, or suppose Shiv is mom, standing by the Roy sibs — particularly after Season 4’s catastrophic episode 8 — typically displays murkily on the ethical compass. 

However as HBO’s extremely common collection crawls to a painful shut, there’s one dreadful actuality that continues to be unaddressed: nobody, and I emphasize, nobody on Succession is aware of tips on how to give good items. Regardless that Shiv (Sarah Snook), Kendall (Jeremy Robust), and Roman (Kieran Culkin), together with their allies and (fr)enemies have a disgusting sum of money, they’re horrible at spending it on something truly considerate for one another  — and they might by no means, ever make one thing, particularly after Connor’s (Alan Ruck) extremely ridiculed sourdough starter for Logan’s (Brian Cox) birthday within the first ever episode of Season 1.


‘Succession’: 13 WTF quotes that can hang-out my nightmares from episode 8

In a world the place you mainly get every little thing you need, the Roys and people orbiting them by no means study the tender, considerate, and mildly manipulative artwork of present giving. Presents are a certain shot option to win brownie factors, edge a pal nearer, and even function bait. Within the rich-eat-rich world of the present, the one p.c always neglect the facility of genuinely considerate gestures. Succession is a lesson within the opposite, because the collection exhibits us simply how belittled and alone horrible items could make somebody really feel.

In honor of that very sentiment, here is a rating of the worst items ever exchanged on the present. 

8. Connor and Willa’s Napoleon-Josephine letters

Who may have imagined {that a} Logan Roy gesture would emerge as probably the most considerate in any combine, and proper earlier than his dying? In Season 4, episode 3, Connor and Willa (Justine Lupe) are set to be married, for higher or worse. Earlier than the ceremony and Logan’s final minutes, the couple obtain a marriage current from daddy dearest. No it’s not a heartfelt generational household heirloom — keep in mind that is the Roys, a household who outwardly model sentimentality a weak point. 

In his typical standoffish money-is-everything vogue, Logan offers his firstborn a set of affection letters that Napoleon Bonaparte wrote to his spouse Josephine. It is a clear nod to Connor’s timeless obsession with the French Emperor; the hopeless presidential candidate even tries to get his arms on Napoleon’s severed penis in Season 2, episode 1, when it hits public sale (and sure, it’s an precise collector’s merchandise(opens in a brand new tab)). Certain, in some worlds this is able to make the groom completely satisfied however the fact is, all Connor actually wished was his father to point out as much as his marriage ceremony as an alternative of attending a a enterprise deal. Regardless of its potential to be successful, this love lore is unfortunately nonetheless a miss.

7. Tom’s sycophantic Patek Philippe watch

Within the Succession collection premiere, Tom, overwhelmed by a bout of wishful considering, tries to butter up his then-girlfriend Shiv’s ice king father Logan with a really dear Patek Philippe watch. “It is extremely correct. Each time you have a look at it, it tells you precisely how wealthy you might be,” Tom tells Logan. Whereas the social climber breaks the financial institution for this gesture of sycophancy, his coronary heart’s in the correct place. Nevertheless, the current exhibits a critical lack of awareness of this specific present receiver. If it is not abundantly clear, billionaire Logan Roy cannot be purchased.

Mocking Tom’s little gift-giving speech, Logan says, “That is very humorous. Did you rehearse that(opens in a brand new tab)?” With out a lot as a nod of approval, the bullish patriarch offers away the mighty costly watch to the household current Roys’ makeshift softball stadium. This trade is to make up for Roman’s filthy million-dollar dwelling run tease with the household’s younger son. It is unattainable to rewatch this interplay with out cringing. Higher luck subsequent time, Tom.

6. Kendall’s iconic “L to the OG” rap

If there ever was a golden current for the viewers, that is it. To commemorate 50 years of huge daddy Logan working Waystar Royco, Kendall bestows the black tie occasion with an iconic efficiency of “L to the OG(opens in a brand new tab)”, a bonkers, authentic rap written by Succession composer Nicholas Britell. Kendall’s interpretation of a “tribute” to his dad entails good lyrics like: “Bro, don’t get it twisted, I’ve been by way of hell. However since I stan Dad, I’m alive and nicely.” Watching Kendall strip his tuxedo jacket to disclose a customized Logan-themed jersey, whereas encouraging Waystar board members, main shareholders, and the most important gamers in fictional American politics to “kiss the ring” makes for a hilarious second in tv. 

Unsurprisingly, Logan is just not amused, particularly when Kendall flings a baseball cap on his father’s head. In our eyes, babygirl Ken will get a ten on 10 for this over-the-top gesture from Season 2, though Logan completely hates it.

5. Stewy’s massive, lovely Malicious program 

For Kendall, from his BFF.

Within the second episode of Season 3, all hell breaks free after Kendall’s explosive press convention — the primary time Kendall is remoted from the household. After publicly revolting towards his father in dramatic King Lear vogue, the devastated inheritor is hiding out in his ex-wife Rava’s (Natalie Gold) residence when an ominous present arrives within the publish: a Malicious program from his investor and school buddy Stewy (Arian Moayed). 

Born in Greek mythology, the wood horse has develop into symbolic for revolt and stealth overthrows of energy — the victorious ploy from the Trojan Struggle noticed the Greek military covertly acquire entry to town by way of a gifted massive wood horse. Stressed in his “hidey-hole”, Kendall struggles to seek out individuals he can belief and Stewy’s conflicting current solely pushes him additional off-kilter. To mess with an already damaged babygirl is a sin like no different.

4. Shiv’s toxic scorpion from Tom

Yeah, this didn’t land.

No relationship is sacred in Succession and Tom and Shiv’s risky marriage is testomony to that. In Season 4, episode 7, the world’s most vindictive will-they, received’t-they duo lastly get collectively, alas solely momentarily. To mark the morning after, Tom (or “Father Sexmus” as he cheekily calls himself), brings Shiv a curated tray of breakfast, contemporary polling papers, and a gift, curiously wrapped in brown paper and a lush cream bow. Might it’s jewellery? Possibly an engagement ring?

To everybody’s despair, the field encloses an acrylic resin paperweight boasting an entombed scorpion. When Shiv is understandably baffled, Tom insists the pre-party prezzie is a foolish little joke, that the scorpion represents his spouse and their toxic relationship: “I like you(opens in a brand new tab) however you kill me and I kill you.” The disastrous sting of Tom’s despicable present is intelligent foreshadowing, as this lovey-dovey rendezvous is getting ready to crashing and burning. 

3. The worst birthday card ever from Logan

“Money out and fuck off.”

As Mashable’s Elena Cavender writes, “Crying in your birthday is a standard trope of disaffected womanhood.”  However certainly, nobody had it as dangerous as babygirl Kendall on his extravagant fortieth birthday blowout. All through Season 3, Ken and Logan’s relationship struggles to the purpose of disappearing, and his connection together with his siblings is awkward at greatest. Kendall’s birthday bash in episode 7 is obvious proof.

Logan sends his favorite errand boy Romulus to the occasion with a merciless greeting card in hand; the phrases “Blissful Birthday” are crossed out and “Money out and fuck off” is scribbled as an alternative. Included throughout the card, a time period sheet from Logan providing Kendall over $2 million to promote his share of the corporate. Few items can worsen than having your father wanting you gone from each his firm and household whereas your smug little brother delivers the information at your party. 

2. Kendall’s youngsters’ (perhaps fortunately) lacking current

Approach an excessive amount of birthday.

The saga of unhappiness from Kendall’s fiery forty continues, and the episode is rightly titled “Too A lot Birthday”. Simply after we suppose issues cannot probably go extra south for probably the most weak Roy sibling, Kendall decides to make himself really feel higher by unwrapping the current that his oft-ignored youngsters apparently handmade for him. Unable to seek out it instantly, he goes on a rampage, toppling over a mound of very costly items, within the hope of discovering the blotchy wrapping of the one from his kids. 

When his girlfriend Naomi Pierce (Annabelle Dexter-Jones) interrupts the unraveling to offer Ken the Rolex she purchased him, the hungry-for-love birthday boy snaps at her, heartbroken that the lavish present wasn’t even inscribed. How dare she? Mainly do not buy the Roys watches — it will not go down nicely. We by no means study if Kendall finds the present from his youngsters however Reddit is satisfied(opens in a brand new tab) it by no means existed or that it probably contained their useless pet rabbit’s physique. Gory. Possibly it is a good factor it was by no means discovered…

1. Matsson’s limitless creepy blood bricks

In Season 4, episode 5, watching Shiv cozying as much as GoJo CEO Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) and teasing the concept of breaking the blood bond along with her brothers was tense sufficient, however the Succession writers throw a good feistier curveball. “I used to be seeing this woman and after we broke up, due to some issues that we stated when issues have been good and intense, as type of a nasty, uh, pleasant joke about what I shouldn’t do, I despatched her a few of my blood(opens in a brand new tab),” Matsson admits to an aghast Shiv. “A half a litre frozen blood brick. As a joke, clearly,” he added.

To make issues worse, the ex-lover in query was Ebba (Eili Harboe), GoJo’s head of communications, and Mattson’s significantly nasty type of harassment most positively didn’t land as a “joke”. Nonetheless, the entitled techie continued to ship her bricks “repeatedly.” Indisputably, this takes the cake as absolutely the worst “current” on Succession (but). 

Season 4 of Succession is now streaming on HBO Max(opens in a brand new tab), with new episodes airing weekly on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.
