Here’s Logan Roy’s Cryptic Box of Donuts about ‘Succession.


Season 3 of HBO’s SuccessionEpisode 1 started off with a bang and Episode 2 did the same. Logan, Roy patriarch Logan, is still in cleanup mode after his son Kendall (Jeremy Strong), publicly blaming Waystar Rayco’s years-old sex/murder scandal coverup.

“Have you been spooked by f–king donuts?” Kendall exclaimed. Kendall exclaimed. “right,”The Roy family and viewers both know that his motives are far more sinister than they think. Kendall is more focused on revenge than donuts. We’ll just have to wait to find out who will end up on Team Kendall or Team Logan at the end of this catastrophe.
