So there we’ve it. After 4 seasons, a complete lot of scheming and an enormous loss of life, Succession has now come to an finish.
And though each season was crammed with traces that will likely be perpetually etched into our recollections, Season 4 actually had some doozies.
From Greg (Nicholas Braun) roasting Uncle Logan (Brian Cox) to Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Shiv (Sarah Snook) destroying one another emotionally, listed here are a number of the most WTF quotes from Succession’s closing season.
I like ‘Succession’, however there’s 1 tiny planning element I can’t get my head round
“The place are your youngsters? The place’s all of your youngsters, uncle Logan? In your massive birthday?” — Greg, episode 1
Not many individuals might get away with saying one thing so brutal to Logan himself, however someway Greg – together with his bumbling, unthreatening allure – will get away with it. In equity, Logan did ask to be roasted.
“The advantage of having a household that doesn’t love you is you be taught to stay with out it.” — Connor, episode 2
If you would like very bizarre, and infrequently deeply tragic traces, Connor (Alan Ruck) is your man. He says this to his siblings the night time earlier than his marriage ceremony, earlier than following it up with this gem: “You’re needy love sponges, and I’m a plant that grows on rocks and lives off bugs that die within me.” Yikes.
“He by no means even appreciated me.” — Connor, episode 3
The season’s notorious episode three, which offers with Logan’s sudden loss of life throughout Connor’s marriage ceremony, is filled with harrowing moments. However essentially the most quietly WTF line is likely to be Connor’s deadpan admission after first listening to the information of his dad’s loss of life.
Conner cuts a tragic determine in Season 4.

“We’re calling her a taxi to the subway in order that she will be able to go dwelling to her little residence” — Marcia, episode 4
Oh, you’d forgotten how brutal Marcia (Hiam Abbass) will be? Her return in episode 4, when she kicks a distraught Kerry (Zoe Winters) out of Logan’s previous residence, is a really clear reminder.
“Your earlobes are thick and chewy. Yeah, like barnacle meat.” — Tom, episode 5
That is the primary of a number of very WTF exchanges between Tom and Shiv, whose character trajectories might in all probability be described as considerably rocky in Season 4. That is the second Tom flicks her ear after she tries to scuff up his white footwear.
“I despatched her a few of my blood. Half a litre frozen blood brick. As a joke.” — Matsson, episode 5
When potential Waystar purchaser Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) confesses to Shiv that he “is likely to be in a little bit of a pickle”, just about the very last thing we’re anticipating him to say is that he’s been harassing his head of comms Ebba (Eili Harboe) by sending her giant portions of his personal blood. Shiv, who’s simply as taken again as us, instantly presents some sage recommendation: “Cease sending individuals your blood.”
Shiv and Tom’s relationship is stranger than ever in Season 4.

“You wanna play bitey?” — Shiv, episode 6
After the bizarre earlobe change in episode 5, Shiv’s mid-party suggestion that her and Tom play “bitey” – a sport the place they chew one another’s arms on the similar time and see who provides in first – is a really bizarre, however kind of pure, extension. That is how Shiv and Tom do flirting, apparently.
“HR says I’m the best man for the job as a result of it seems like I care, however I don’t.” — Greg, episode 7
Did Greg use to be a pleasant man? Possibly, however by Season 4 he’s been totally corrupted. The way in which he cheerfully boasts to Matsson about firing 100 individuals is obvious proof of that.
“I feel you might be incapable of affection. And I feel you might be possibly not particular person to have youngsters with.” — Tom, episode 7
Sadly, after the bizarre flirting and a really temporary reunion, Shiv and Tom’s relationship shortly goes again downhill once more earlier than continuing to plummet to newer depths. Your entire change they’ve at their pre-election get together is horrible, however this line – particularly provided that Shiv is secretly pregnant on the time – stings essentially the most.
Greg has been totally corrupted this Season.

“If I lose, I need it accurately characterised as an enormous victory.” — Mencken, episode 8
That is potential future president Jeryd Mencken telling Roman how he needs a possible election loss “characterised”. Yep, it’s horribly harking back to Trump’s baseless 2020 election fraud claims.
“Like, is that even true? Or is that like, a brand new place or a tactic?” — Tom, episode 8
That is Tom’s response moments after Shiv tells him she’s pregnant together with his youngster. The 2 of them are so used to enjoying thoughts video games, and residing in a world the place everybody consistently has an angle, that Tom can’t even imagine his personal spouse when she tells him she’s pregnant.*
“Nothing issues, Ken. Nothing fucking issues. Dad’s useless and the nation’s only a massive pussy ready to get fucked.” — Roman, episode 8
Roman’s bluntness is painful by this level on election night time. The one factor he cares about is getting Mencken elected so he’ll scrap the GoJo deal, and it’s onerous to choose which a part of this change is extra disturbing: his remark about America or his repeated assertion that “nothing issues”.*
Roman not cares about something.

“If I see you breastfeeding, I’m gonna need to jerk off.” — Roman, episode 9
Nothing like some heartfelt phrases out of your brother after you announce your being pregnant.
“Marcia’s wanting stylish. Yummy. Horny funeral girl. In the event you’re weirded out by that, wait ’until I’ve intercourse together with her on dad’s coffin.” — Roman, episode 9
Roman is actually in peak gross-out mode on the day of his dad’s funeral.
“You’ve lastly fallen in love with… our scheduling alternatives.” — Tom, episode 10
Tom and Shiv mentioned some tousled stuff to one another this season, however for some motive this one hit additional onerous.
“I don’t like to consider these blobs of jelly rolling round. Face eggs.” — Caroline, episode 10
“Peter doesn’t just like the knobbies.” — Caroline, episode 10
Caroline got here in clutch on this finale with two utterly new sentences that can perpetually change the best way we see eyes and bread.
No person’s consuming their eggs?

“Yours weren’t actual.” — Logan, allegedly, by way of Roman, episode 10
Ahh, good previous dad. Even from past the grave — until Roman pulled this horrific description of Kendall’s youngsters from nowhere simply to harm him — the patriarch finds new methods to pit his progeny in opposition to one another. Sophie and Iverson have been adopted and conceived by sperm donor, respectively, and Roy Senior apparently as soon as famous that this imply they weren’t a part of “the bloodline”. Whether or not this was actual or not, it’s extraordinarily gross — even for this present.
