Succession spoilers season 1-4 below

The penultimate episode of Succession, titled Church and State, was everything we had been hoping for. Emotions were running high as Logan’s friends, foes and family gathered in an exquisite Catholic cathedral in Manhattan to say goodbye to the Waystar boss.

Roman, Kendall, Shiv and – unexpectedly – Ewan gave eulogies; Shiv finally told her family she was pregnant; and the GoJo deal was very much the undercurrent of the event with Jeryd Mencken and Lukas Matsson both in attendance. Meanwhile, the fact that they were at their father’s funeral did not stop Kendall nor Shiv from scheming.

It’s hard to believe that there’s just one episode left of Succession; so let’s really soak it all in. Here’s this week’s best fan reactions to another week of hardcore drama.
