Succession Season 4 Premiere: Media mogul Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his three young children Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Schiff (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) A bidding war between the two dominated the premiere of ‘The Heirs’ on Sunday . After their father (with the help of their mother) effectively cut them off from the family business at the end of the third season, the siblings seemed to celebrate after outbidding themselves to buy out rival empire Pierce Media’s Got Logan.
Shiv then returns home to New York to retrieve clothes from the apartment she no longer actually shares with her ex-husband Tom (Matthew Macfadyen). He’s there too, and what follows is a visceral scene – despite none of the contestants raising their voices.
Tom called Shiv and told him he had met Kendall’s ex-girlfriend, Naomi Pierce, which led Shiv and his brothers to unwittingly start teasing Pierce (or “having a drink with, or whatever).

“It’s kind of heartbreaking,” Snook said. “She can’t really say what she needs or wants, but she insists on being herself.” Snook thinks that trait may be ingrained in Shiv now: “She looks a lot like Logan, and I don’t think Logan has ever been in a romantic relationship. Really happy. I think Shiv could be just as lonely.
