Unlike most people I loved Logan Roy but then he was killed off.
Luckily what I am witnessing in Kendall is a total metamorphosis into Logan Roy.
It is more than orgasmic to watch
I am so here for it.
What a crescendo
What a stellar act
This is a game-tying pinch hit grand slam in the bottom of ninth. Kendall has gone from the guy striking out in the late innings to the one capable of getting the crowd on their feet. Wow.
Things that got my attention include
The way Ewan (Logan’s brother) is looking at Ken during and particularly after his speech… it’s like he’s just beginning to see that Ken is the reincarnation of Logan. It’s like a mix of respect and terror.
A boy never really becomes a man until he’s buried his father”. We saw the final transformation of Kendal when they exit the mausoleum/cript. From there on, he is Logan 2.0. The way he tells Roman “You fucked it” without any empathy after he pretty much collapsed during the eulogy.
Going into this episode I had my doubts about whether the writers could create a eulogy that was both emotionally resonant and unflinchingly honest. They not only pulled it off, but Jeremy Strong delivered it beautifully beat by beat. I did not expect to cry in this episode but this got me. He just secured his second Emmy with this scene.
