Succession

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on HBO

Season Finale
Last week's Succession could have satisfactorily concluded with Kieran Culkin's Roman Roy accidentally sending a d--- pic to his father, Brian Cox's media magnate Logan, an error with intriguing possible corporate consequences for a number of characters, not least J. Smith-Cameron's Gerri. But the very beloved, very twisted, very foul-mouthed dramedy had more to tease in its closing seconds as viewers saw the head of Jeremy Strong's emotionally demolished, and likely drunk, Kendall dip below the waters of a swimming pool. Is this the end for Logan's second oldest son? Tune the f--- in to find out. —Clark Collis
