Warning: This article contains spoilers for the series finale of Succession“With open eyes.”

“Big, big day on the old salami line,” Fisher Stevens communications chief Hugo Baker announced two-thirds into the Sunday night feature series finale of Succession. He couldn’t have said truer words.

The final minutes of creator Jesse Armstrong’s saga of the Roy family have revealed that Matthew Macfadyen executive Tom Wambsgans has become the US CEO of Waystar Royco after his board voted to sell the company to the tycoon technology Alexander Skarsgård, Lukas Matsson. Earlier in the episode, Sarah Snook’s Shiv Roy decided to side with his two brothers, Jeremy Strong’s Kendall and Kieran Culkin’s Roman, to block the deal after learning that Matsson didn’t have the intention to become its CEO. At the board meeting, Shiv changed her mind and ultimately voted against the deal, following a heated huddle with her siblings in which she suggested Kendall couldn’t become CEO himself because he had killed someone.

Big, big day on the old salami line, indeed.
