The episode begins with Logan telling a story to Kendall’s son and his grandson Iverson (Quentin Morales).

He calls for Carrie to get another book, something with ‘some action’ when he gets a phone call and yells for Gerri, as Roman tells her to jump on that grenade for her.

The siblings are all talking over a game of Monopoly as they talk about Willa (Justine Lupe) about getting married.

Comfry (Dasha Nekrasova) tell the siblings that Kendall is coming, after spending the night in the hospital after accidentally drowning in the pool.

Kendall says he might need to get home because he’s talking to ‘new lawyers’ and he’s discussing putting everything on his Instagram and Vanity Fair is doing a piece on him maybe.

He takes his kids and leaves, as Comfry confirms they have only had preliminary talks as Gerri (J. Smith-Cameron) says that they are looking at a ‘historic fine’ from the Department of Justice.

She adds that GoJo’s market cap has exceeded Waystar now and they are entertaining other options.

Logan brings Roman (Kieran Culkin) as they go see Lukas and try to work something out. 

They arrive at Matsson’s place by helicopter and then by boat, as Logan tells Roman that his assistant Carrie is a ‘good looking woman.’

Logan wonders what’s wrong with him and says if he needs to get straightened out he should do it but he doesn’t want to know.

Lukas comes down to meet him and says he’s glad to finally meet him in person, as Logan asks him about the merger.

Lukas says he’s interested but Logan thinks it can work if they stay tight.

Lukas said that Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg told him a story about how slaves would rise up and kill the masters.

He says the point is if they are to survive they need a lot of ‘little people’ running around.

Logan says he doesn’t have the content and Lukas says they have to beef up or get out.

Lukas says he’s excited about the future but Logan says he is too, but he also seems quite sad about the future.

Lukas says he thinks they fit, but he says he has that fine and ‘other bulls**t,’ but he thinks he should be the one to take over the company.

He wants Logan to maintain prestige and he would structure the board ‘so f***ing nice for you.’

Logan says she’s not sure he can swallow it, but Lukas says his son Roman would be ‘key’ to the integration process and he’d be happy to assess the rest of the ability.

Logan says this is not happening and Lukas says he can appreciate that. Logan asks Roman to get back for the wedding, leaving Logan alone with Lukas as he mulls his options. 

Roman heads back to the wedding alone as the siblings want to know how it happened but he won’t tell them.

Kendall arrives at Roman, Shiv and Connor’s table and Shiv says they wanted to tell him that they love him.

Roman says he doesn’t want him to die and Kendall wonders what his angle is, and asks if this is an intervention.

Kendall says they all need an intervention and Connor says he needs to stop trying to kill their dad. 

Kendall says he hears them and he feels like everything he’s done has been with good intentions and he thinks it’s actually all about them.

‘Do you have any idea how it feels as the oldest son to be promised something and just have it taken?’ Kendall says.

Connor freaks out and says he is the eldest son and he wants to be considered for taking over.

‘I didn’t see pop for three years,’ Connor says and adds no one has said congratulations for him getting engaged. 

Willa asks Connor if he’s all right and he says he thinks Willa is gonna leave him and Willa says he’s a nice man… before agreeing to marry him.

‘F**k it. How bad can it be right?’ Willa says as their car arrives.

The family starts all arriving at the wedding as Shiv wonders if dad is actually coming to the wedding or not.

She says, ‘You don’t know jack s**t do you?’ as Roman wonders if they should check on mom.

Shiv reveals that she did get a pre-nup.

Greg talks to Tom (Matthew McFadyen) about dating the contessa, adding she is eighth in line to the throne of Luxembourg.

Tom exclaims that he could be a plane crash away to being the weirdest ruler in the world.

The siblings’ mother Caroline says that they don’t think Logan is coming as they start the procession without him.

Greg is literally sitting between the contessa and Comfry as they share different views on weddings. 

Shiv gives a speech about her mother, adding that they will never be bored in the ‘brief time they are married.’

She adds that she hopes her marriage is as ‘rich and fulfilling as mine,’ before toasting to the bride and groom.

Marcia (Hiam Abbass) goes off to be by her own as Shiv wonders if she knows something.

Connor reveals that Logan is trying to have another baby as Gerri says Matsson is meeting with finance people as they try to figure out what’s going on.

Greg is talking with the contessa and Roman says she can stop talking to him as Greg calls him a ‘sexual pervert.’  

Kendall is by himself smoking with Carrie goes to tell Gerri something as she leaves as Roman corners her.

Roman wonders why Carrie is lying to her as Shiv and Roman wonder if they’re getting f***ed.

Roman tells Shiv that Lukas floated as an idea that maybe they’d buy them… and he told him to f**k off… but he still stuck around.

Shiv tells Kendall they might need to talk about company stuff and he doesn’t want to but she says it’s very important.

Shiv tells Roman and Kendall that dad is trying to f**k them but Roman thinks dad would never sell.

Shiv wonders if they would get protection and Kendall says he doesn’t want to get in on this as Shiv wonders if he has an angle, but Kendall just laughs.

Kendall sits on the ground and puts his hands on his head and says he’s not here but he says there is something ‘really wrong with me.’

‘I’m just not feeling very connected to my children or my endeavors right now and I can’t get one thing right or another, you know,’ Kendall says.

‘I don’t know what happened. I tried to do something. I tried… I tried,’ and Roman says he ‘f***ed it.’

‘I took a shot but it didn’t matter,’ Kendall said and he adds he thought he had a way out of everything. 

Kendall says he’s not a good person and he killed a kid and they’re ‘coming for me.’

He says it happened at Shiv’s wedding, and Shiv says, ‘the waiter guy?’

He starts crying and says he’s ‘lonely’ and he’s ‘all apart,’ but Roman says it doesn’t sound like Kendall killed him. 

Kendall says he dived in a few times to get him but Roman says it sounds like the story of a hero and he would have been out of there.

Shiv says they have to get him out of there when Shiv gets a call from Laird and leaves to take the call.

Logan says he’s killed a kid and Shiv says she has too, as Roman jokes it took forever to get a drink at her wedding.

Shiv says Laird is part of the deal and GoJo is buying Waystar and dad is cashing out, and it’s Matsson’s board.

They say they need to get out of there as Kendall breaks down crying again as they pick him up and leave.

Shiv says they have to go stop this and they go see him and just say they won’t have it, but Roman hesitates before finally getting in. 

Season 2 ended with the Roy family heading into a proxy battle after Logan failed to secure funding to take the company private. 

Roman wonders if they can even stop him and Kendall says they need a majority and Shiv says they just push him out.

Roman wants it to be really equal and they can just fight it out for what they want, and Kendall thinks that will be fun.

Once they come to an agreement they all hit the phones, with Shiv telling Tom he fits in somewhere ‘high.’

Greg tells Tom that he and the contessa are ‘hitting it off,’  and Comfry might be helping with her branding.

Tom tells Greg that things may be in motion and he wants Greg to come with him, saying he might need Greg as his ‘attack dog.’

When Greg asks for more information, though, but he won’t tell him and Tom says, ‘Who has ever looked out for you in this f***ing family.’

Tom says he could be heading towards ‘the bottom of the top’ instead of the ‘endless middle.’

Tom asks if he wants a deal with the devil and Greg says, ‘What am I gonna do with a soul anyway?’ and agrees as they shake on it and hug. 

Kendall, Roman and Shiv arrive at Matsson’s place and they arrive and find a team of lawyers all working away.

They all go in to see their dad and he wonders what this all is, with Roman says he’s feeling out of the loop.

Logan says he’s looking at his options but he doesn’t want Kendall in the room, but they don’t say anything.

Logan says it’s the optimal time to make a deal with GoJo, and Shiv wants to see how it impacts them. 

Logan says their blood is in the water and he needs to move fast, but Shiv says with they’ll be nothing when Matsson takes over.

Logan wants to deal with Roman alone and says he can trust him, but Shiv and Kendall says they can’t trust him.

They say they’re gonna block him but Logan gets Caroline on the phone as Logan reveals they have amended the terms of the divorce agreement… which completely screws the kids.

Logan says they should have trusted him as Shiv wonders who told them they were coming… as Tom shows up.

Shiv tells him that their mom f***ed them as Shiv starts hyperventilating as the season finale comes to an end. 

Logan decided to announce a clean-up with Kendall taking the fall for the massive sexual abuse scandal that happened on the family’s cruise lines.

Kendall threw everyone a major curveball, though, revealing at the press conference that his father knew everything and orchestrated the millions of dollars in payouts to the victims to keep  everything quiet.
