Premium- Succession -How Much Was Logan Involved In The Cruise Ship Sex Scandal On 'Succession'? A Non-DOJ Investigation
Though the Department of Justice and FBI are involved, Kendall's case against his father on Succession is not looking so good after "What It Takes." Spoilers ahead. While Logan is busy picking out the next president of the United States, Kendall is desperate enough to court Tom in a Virginia diner while his brother-in-law samples prison food. If Tom and Shiv don't turn on Logan, it appears the Waystar Royco CEO may get off scot-free. That feels like an injustice, but it's hard to know for sure when Succession hasn't revealed how much Logan knew about the cruise sex scandal. And since the DOJ isn't getting to the bottom of it, I've decided to launch my own unbiased investigation.
In the second episode of Season 3, "Mass in Time of War," Kendall and Connor were explicit that they knew something was happening at cruises. Roman and Shiv tried to act coy, but Roman probably knew more than he's been letting on since he was based in L.A. at the time (though he claimed to know so little in Season 2's "Argestes" that he didn't even know what search terms to use to find the New Yorker exposé on it). And Shiv may have not known what was happening in real-time, but once Tom took over Parks and Cruises in Season 1, she definitely knew since she blackmailed Gerri to move him away from that division in "Pre-Nuptial."
