Succession fans tip Shiv to leak Kendalls murder cover-up
Succession: Teaser trailer for Season 4 Episode 8
Succession fans are convinced Siobhan ‘Shiv’ Roy will finally turn against the family after this episode’s stunning US election results.
The latest instalment, America Decides, saw far-right candidate Jeryd Mencken (Justin Kirk) elected President of the United States when the Roys’ news channel ATN prematurely called the result.
Left-leaning Shiv was furious with the decision, but her brothers Kendall (Jeremy Strong) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) are convinced Mencken’s win will be good for business.
Now the late Logan Roy’s (Brian Cox) only daughter is completely isolated from her family following her split from Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen), so she could resort to desperate tactics to try and tear their legacy apart.
Redditor u/midnightcartographer pointed out Kendall covering up the manslaughter of a waiter at the end of Succession’s first season could be the perfect story to leak to the press to destroy her brother’s reputation.
“Do you guys think Shiv will leak the waiter story?” they asked.
“Because it seems like everyone is having a ‘what would Logan do’ contest and even though Logan never actually leaked he certainly thought of it.”
Logan ultimately kept his son’s secret but used his son’s intoxicated accident as leverage to prevent him from going against Waystar RoyCo.
Although the fatal car crash hasn’t been mentioned so far this season, Shiv could use the cover-up to blackmail Kendall or even leak it to the press to force him to step down as CEO.

“It would absolutely be below the belt and ruin any chance they’ve ever had at being together,” the post continued.
“Sort of like Ken being like ‘it should only be me but I don’t want to end the family’ thing.
“But we are entering the final stretch and Shakespearean levels of drama here and it’s almost the end of the season which means Ken needs to be f****d, it’s science.”
Other fans even thought Shiv may have already started devising her plan to drag the WayStar higher-ups over the coals via the press.
“I think Shiv’s gonna go full nuclear on the family,” u/trance15 replied.
“I suspect she is the one who leaked to the rival network about Tom being the one calling the decision.
“She will spill the beans on Kendall and the waiter, Rome and the d**k pics, Greg Hirsch (Nicholas Braun) and Tom on the cruise coverup.
“She’ll put all her chips in Lukas Mattson’s (Alexander Skarsgård) corner, who in the end…just wanted to stir up shit to drive the stock price down and force the buyout at a lower price.”
With just two episodes left before the entire series comes to an end, Succession fans still have no idea who will ultimately end up on top.
Will Shiv unleash her plan next week and successfully sink her siblings? Or will Mattsson use his ownership of the company to wipe the Roys off the face of the earth?
Succession season 4 continues Sundays on HBO in the USA and the following Monday on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
