Last Updated on December 15, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

Succession Season 3 ending was indeed very shocking for the kids of the Roy family. This drama series has always represented the family battle of the Roys.

This battle is about who will impress their father, Logan Roy, played by Brian Cox, and finally become the next successor of the immense wealth.

Succession Season 3 finale was titled All the Bells Say, and it gave a shock to everyone when Logan Roy announced that he would be selling Waystar Royco to Lukas Matsson, played by Alexander Skarsgard.

None of his children- Shiv (played by Sarah Snook), Kendall (played by Jeremy Strong), and Roman (played by Keiran Culkin) could ultimately stop him from doing so.

There was a lot of hype about the Succession Season 3 ending being shocking and upsetting.

The audience was of the thought that someone might die in the finale. However, the only thing that died over here was the dreams and the trust that the characters had.

If you want the Succession Season 3 ending explained in complete detail, then you have landed in the perfect article. 

Succession Season 3 Ending Explained: Who has died in the finale?

Everyone is alive in the season finale. Many viewers felt that Kendall would die, but ultimately that did not happen.

After seeing his suicidal actions at the end of the eighth episode, the viewers thought he was unsafe and might die. But the man has made it through all this.

This brings forward an uncomfortable discussion on the eve of their mother’s wedding. Shiv, Roman, and Connor try to portray their love for him.

However, things go all wrong when Kendall boastfully claims that he is the firstborn in the family among his siblings. Conor does not take the tone of his statement in a good way.

We see an emotional conversation between Kendall and his siblings in the Succession Season 3 finale, where he opens and confesses that he was responsible for the waiter’s death (which happened in the first season).

Both Roman and Shiv turn out to be supportive. After this, they realize that Logan will sell Waystar Royco to Lukas.

By whom [Spoiler] have Roman, Shiv, and Kendall been betrayed?

At the end of the show, we see that almost everyone has betrayed the three of them. This list would even include their cousin Greg (played by Nicholas Braun and mother (played by Harriet Walter).

By watching the show closely, we can make out that one person has arranged the siblings’ downfall.

Let us have a clear look at all the events in Succession Season 3 Ending.

The season finale starts with a meeting where we see Roman and Logan with Lukas Matsson. Logan asks him whether the deal is on, to which Matsson tells him that Waystar Royco is currently facing a downfall, whereas GoJo is on the rise.

He also states that the company might come with a vast legacy, but the future does not seem very bright.

As of right now, it is the age of online entertainment, streamers and a lot of digital content; therefore, Matsson stated a merge where he would be the ultimate owner.

However, this assures Logan that the company will see a safe and secure future in the upcoming times. He is even willing to hand over the family to someone who is not even a part of the family for this assurance.

When the trio gets a hint that their father had skipped the wedding for something vital (the deal), they plan up together.

This togetherness among the siblings is very emotional because they have been fighting throughout.

They understand that their strength would lie in being together. If they can get hold of their mother’s shares, they can stop Logan from selling the company and easily inherit it.

When the three of them finally reach Logan’s house, where the deal is currently going on, they find that their plans are of no use.

Someone had already informed Logan of their plan, so he negotiated with their mother. She has sold all her shares, making their plans completely useless now. 

In Succession Season 3, the news that shocks everyone vendors is that Tom has also joined Logan’s side. Although the trio came together, it was too late for them.

Is Tom the ultimate winner?

This is true that Tom Wambsgams has become the favourite Roy child for Logan.

If you wonder who the person is who had given the information to Logan regarding the plan that the three of them had made, then there is a story behind it.

Tom had asked Greg whether he was set to make the deal. On the other hand, we see Shiv noticing that Logan pats Tom on his back.

The audience then becomes clear that Tom is the one who has stabbed her. He had taken abuse for a long time and served a jail sentence.

When he finally understood that Shiv had no feelings for him, it urged him to snatch the power from the siblings.

Finally, we will be seeing GoJo and Waystar Royco merging, and this leaves a lot of opportunities up ahead for the current favourites- Greg and Tom.

Will there be follow up season after this?

There is confirmed news that HBO has already a fourth season of the show. The viewers will be very interested to see what the new season has planned for them.

Will the battle now shift to building the Supreme Power with all the siblings combined? We will get to know more about it in the upcoming days.

There are significant chances to see that Greg and Tom exercise their power over the Roy siblings in the upcoming season.

The viewers will also have to look for Connor’s major subplot. And will Willa finally agree to get married to him?
