if you re-watch the episode, he needles him and sets him up as
the sacrificial lamb in a lower stakes scenario when making his
offer to Stewie.

I think he pushed Kendall in to this...it is the outcome HE wanted.

my sense is that Shiv is in on it in some capacity and that both her
and Ken knew what he was going to do going in to it.

was it the Adriatic? it looked unreal!
Definitely a set up, Logan knew that Ken would break.

It's not going to end well for Ken, again. :(

I don't see a Shiv connection but anything is possible.

There was a moment between Ken and Roman also...

And yes, Adriatic!

They boarded in Cavtat...

the siblings actually have some human conversations....I think the
hostage thing is supposed to be a reset for roman....still no more sexy
scenes with Gerri, but I loved that he reflexively defended her before he
had really formulated a premise....that whole shark tank scene was
brilliant.

Ken asks his dad in their 1:1 if he thought he "could have done it"
(ie: run the company), and Logan says that he (Ken) is not a killer

by redirecting to him on the fly during congressional testimony, and then
needling him throughout the last episode, he all but told Kendall what to
do....patricide!

rewatch the scene where shiv puppy dog eyes Logan to save Tom...there
is dialog, but they cut out the audio...what does she tell Kendall? "Dad wants
to see you?"...or..."it's going to be you..."

Kendall also says he'll "have the papers" during his closing press conference
which makes me wonder if he got the blackmail material from Greg or if he
has his own insurance policy.

I like Kendall's new lady friend...their dynamic is really good.

watched the new season of Letterkenny with a friend today and we were both on
the fence....it seems like they regressed too much in to fart jokes and otherwise
tried to pile too much in to it...dunno how I feel about it yet.

Patricide! :p

I think it was a way for Logan to step down on his own terms rather than be forcefully taken down by the shareholders.

Kendall will be taken to his knees again. :(

I think it was pretty obvious that Greg gave him the papers but what’s Greg’s motive?
He will lose his place with Roys and his inheritance...

Tom is one of my favorite characters and this was a good episode for the Tom and Shiv story.

Tom accusing Shiv of wanting to “gobble the odd side dick” was all time. lulz

Thank you for the chicken!

the only character more pathetic and abused is Connor
and the hooker with the heart of gold...

such a strange dynamic there with the siblings.

I loved the "talk about stuff" scene...it felt genuine...while
they were sitting on a mega yacht even.

did you see El Camino or Bad Astra yet?

Parasite looks awesome.

the new Dafoe black and white flick looks like it will be great

I still think the Joker was better than the typical DC/Marvel
used buttwipe

I think your review put me off Bad Astra but I'll give it a go just out of curiosity.

El Camino ist gut?

Dafoe is always good!

I just rewatched the episode, loled @ Tom's "I'm not a hippie" statement.

:oops:

El Camino is good...very well composed....great dialog
and interesting to see some back story and revisit old
characters.

it just doesn't seem like a big screen movie.

that universe is interesting because Better Call Saul
makes Breaking Bad even better and then going back
and watching Breaking Bad again creates the same
feedback loop for BCS...it's a strange relationship
between the two.

I don't think Better Call Saul would work if it didn't have
the Breaking Bad foundation....even though the characters
and storylines are arguably way better than BB.
