The main idea Greg’s snooping around a meeting where Matsson revealed his real choice for the next U.S. CEO: Tom, led to the dissolution of Matsson’s alliance with Shiv. In order to derail the GoJo deal and make him CEO, Kendall was able to rally the siblings, but Shiv ultimately refused to join the scheme. While Roman was enjoying a drink, GoJo acquired Waystar, Tom was named CEO, and Kendall was lost on the streets of New York.
Shiv The woman with the knife name is always a good bet. We first believed that Kendall and Shiv would square off in this episode, with her attempting to push the GoJo transaction through (and take over as the new boss) and him attempting to block it (and take over as the new boss). While Shiv and Kendall both traveled to their mother’s home in the Caribbean to look for a missing Roman, Matsson chose to pursue Tom for the position, claiming, among other things, that he couldn’t hire Shiv because he wanted to have sex with her. Greg, who was able to eavesdrop on Matsson via a translation software, watched as Shiv and Kendall argued while Roman sought to avoid the situation.
The finale of “Succession” Oskar then informed Kendall via phone that Shiv had left. Greg informed Kendall of the information. And Kendall made use of it to win over Shiv and Roman. The three of them decided to unite their efforts in an effort to thwart the deal and install Kendall as the leader. However, things became more challenging once they returned to New York and Shiv learned that Matsson wanted to choose Tom. She also began to appear unwell once she arrived at Waystar and saw Kendall occupying her father’s office in preparation for his ascent to power. And when it came down to it, she abstained when the vote was deadlocked and she had the power to break the tie. Roman and Kendall came after, and
She gave the bad news that she was unable to. There will be many different justifications for Shiv’s actions. She might have felt guilty for Tom and thought she owed him something. She may not have been able to move past the numerous wrongdoings Kendall has committed against her, such as the time he played Nirvana’s “Rape Me” over the Waystar loudspeakers while she was speaking and the fact that Kendall and Roman have spent the entire season cutting her out while making excuses for their actions.
Roman also attempted to give Jeryd Mencken the keys to the nation. Perhaps she reasoned that her husband stood a better chance of maintaining a relationship with the business than her brother and that those were her only two options. She might have had some inkling that Kendall lacked the necessary skills. She also mentioned that he killed someone.
Since the catastrophic incident in Tuscany after Caroline’s wedding, in which Kendall confessed to his brothers, the automobile crash at the conclusion of the first season had been dormant. Kendall had driven while high and ended up killing a young waiter at Shiv’s wedding. Even when Shiv and Kendall appeared to be getting quite candid during some portions of “America Decides,” they never mentioned it or even alluded to it. They never jabbed him with it. Therefore, it appeared that it might just never come up again. But why did it have to come up once more? It’s difficult to believe she wouldn’t bring up the subject if Kendall and Shiv were going to have a contentious confrontation. And
In the heat of the moment, she finally did. Shiv and Tom finally get into their car together, albeit not quite; she places her hand on top of his but doesn’t quite grip it. Nevertheless, with a child on the way, it appears likely that they will rekindle their marriage and eventually find a way for Shiv to rejoin Waystar. Shiv is a woman who has only had a few options throughout her life. Her father gave her the best position but afterwards withdrew it. Her brothers excluded her. Because she is incapable of loving, her husband doesn’t even believe she should have children. She’s made her decisions. They will house her. succession
