This is some peak peak TV shit, where every passing episode actually gets better? Best show on air by a country mile, in the same company as the Leftovers, Atlanta over the last couple of years.

The dinner scene was incredible, Logan's 'take the ******* money' line was pitch perfect. Goddamn this show.

Love the intro, Logan always eluding the kids with his back towards them or walking off in the distance. Fast forward to now and they're still vying for this connection to him that continues to elude them.

Tom got the best line this week. "Just this morning I went to the store and I bought a pound of ham and I paid for it by telling them I was really worried about the environment".

This is the show that reminds me why I love great TV. It’s the best one around right now and at the peak of its powers.
So many despicable characters at one table. Brilliant.

Kendall’s rap made me extremely uncomfortable I had to fast forward it.
Nooo. It was awesome. L to the OG.

No, maybe not awesome. Geez, chuck the actress back on the plane with her now ruined career. fu**.

Roman got the best line this week - I have no idea what you're talking about but it sounds ******* slick dude. Slicker than cum on a dolphin's back.

Roman buying Hearts not Hibs bahahahaha.

Unsurprising given they were both created by the same bloke, but there's a lot of Jeremy from Peep Show in Kendall.

Yeah ep9 was a killer. Loved seeing Kendall getting a bit of spark back.

Potentially all three kids put themselves back in the race to take over the company. Kendall putting the smackdown on during the hearing. Shiv silencing the witness and Roman maybe getting the big money.

Who do we think the blood sacrifice is going to be? Tom seems like the ideal candidate, especially after how poor he went during the hearing.

Season finale to come. Hopefully we get to see Abit more of Connor and his 'Conheads' march to the Oval Office.

Think Greg's decision to stay with the company still has abit more to play out. Might get dragged down with Tom perhaps.

My gut feeling was the Tom would be the sacrifice with Shiv being the one to convince him. In turn Shiv would finally get publicly named as the heir apparent.

Kendall is the one that’s going to get absolutely reamed and thrown under the bus. Logan isn’t forgetting and forgiving as it all seems.

The writers have set up the season for us to like Kendall and perhaps sympathise with him. And drop his twist on us.

Logan taking the back seat during the hearingand making as if Kendall was in control, makes me think this will happen.

I was thinking it had to be Tom but now it's clear it will be Kendall. Logan did say blood sacrifice after all.

Tom's not blood.

Greg is blood and giving up $250m to believe Uncle Logan only to get screwed over by Uncle Logan would prove Ewen's point to a tee.

Its brilliant the way they work in real life events but do it seamlessly.

This week's episode referenced two massive events of recent years, but perfectly within the narrative.

Logan before Congress was Rupert before the Commons inquiry into phone hacking ... right down to the "This is my most humble day" line.

Roman getting effectively kidnapped in the hotel was MBS locking up all the rich Saudis in the Riyadh Ritz Carlton and shaking them down.

let's ******* goooooooo.

incredible episode, incredible season. it's hit the pantheon and it's season 2.

theoretically could see it go for many seasons more, but that was as clear an Act II as you'll get.
