Succession’s Season 3 has plenty in common with Captain America: Civil War. The Roys were divided with Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Shiv (Sarah Snook) trying to figure out where they stand.
Everyone showed their supervillain side, including Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) in Succession Season 3 Episode 2.
No duo is more comic than Tom and Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) on Succession.
Like Star Wars, characters in Succession often flirt with or embrace the Dark side.
In Season 3 Episode 5, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) recalled the ailing king from The Lord of the Rings.
Stewy (Arian Moayed), like the DC supervillain, is always a couple of steps ahead of the Roys.
With the snap of his fingers, Logan Roy usually gets what he wants, including picking a president.
Kendall’s birthday bash in Season 3 shows how he is the Tony Stark of HBO.
Gerri and Roman’s relationship has had its ups and downs, but for the most part, they’ve remained loyal to each other.
