    Even though we never get to see logan and ewan uncle Noah on screen we can judge from both of their personality and worldview that he must be a domineering and abusive man who probably passed or beaten his worldview into his nephew of life being a competion with emotion such as love or even affection as being a weakness to display which inform both of their personality and worldview which they passed down to their children.

    Yeah, I totally agree, anon.

    One of the things I love most about this show is the way it depicts cycles of abuse and the way it's passed from generation to generation. It never quite lets us forget that this cycle didn't start with Logan, and that he is as much victim as he is perpetrator - something masterfully balanced I think between the writing and Brian Cox's performance.

    Logan's never exactly sympathetic, but I think there's always a wriggling thread of humanity in him that makes him so compelling, but also has this interesting affect of making him somehow fragile too. I talk about it a lot on this blog, but I think all the time about the scene in 3.08 with Logan and Kendall at dinner, and the absolute cruelty of Logan's actions paired with the simultaneous paranoia and possessiveness and also, I think, somewhere beneath it all, the actual love too.

    He thinks Kendall wants him dead before he realises that what Kendall wants is to leave him behind, and for a character who's mother sent him to live with an abusive man when he was three and would never see him again, as we found out in the Dundee ep, I think there's something really real in that.

    It feels like a scene in conversation with the dinner with Josh in 3.03 where Logan said that he loved Kendall but then was so vitriolic in his treatment of Kendall afterwards.

    Caroline's right - Logan does want to kick those he loves to see if they come back, but I think Logan wants to do that because he was once the kicked dog himself, and it's given him a broken idea of love. He tests it and resents it and uses it, at the same time he holds it so tight he suffocates it because he was taught family was something that left you behind.

    One of the things that fascinates me in this distinction between Logan and Ewan is that they're sort of the opposite on the one hand - like where Logan holds and keeps, Ewan seems to be the one to leave and 'abandon'. He cut off his daughter, and seemingly had no relationship with his grandson in the process of that, only to try and use Greg's inheritance to get him to play the role that he wanted him to. Logan punishes his children when they don't do what he wants, but he also keeps them close, Ewan seems to punish through abandonment - leaving like, perhaps, he feels his mother did.

    It gets even more interesting when you consider the ways that both of them have seemingly externalised their trauma. Logan takes his resentments and his baggage out on the world through Waystar Royco, but I think Ewan does too through his activism. He views himself as saving a world his brother's helped destroyed, while still fighting to keep his brother in power at Waystar and reaping the financial rewards of the family business.

    Ewan standing up for Logan when he did in s1 was always something I read as an indication of the fact that deep down, Ewan and Logan are trauma bonded, even if they'd never admit it or articulate it that way, and god, there's something just so interesting about watching these two men in their eighties embody the fracture that happens when children are abused, and the endless legacy it has not just on them, but those around them too.

    #i could talk about the older roy's all day tbh #absolutely obsessed with ewan logan and rose #i've been thinking a lot lately that one of the reasons logan never entertained connor for ceo and groomed kendall #was that logan sees kendall as the deserving second son like him #and connor as the failing first born like ewan #which i guess would sort of make roman the spare #which fits too really #and i wonder if that was one of the shifts in logan's visioning in s3 #with kendall doing performative activism and roman stepping up #like kendall was ewan all along and roman was actually him #after all #what are logan's kids if he can't project onto them? #welcome to my ama #logan roy#ewan roy #ewan + logan #succession meta#hbo succession

    I was showing my buddy episode 5, when I caught a very short cut from Logan to Ewan during the dinner conversation. Rava had just reported that Iverson was having some troubles and that she was going to sit in the hall with him, which Logan took objection to. He demands that the child be brought in to sit with the rest of the family, stating that he "has to do as he's told". Rava replies to this but the camera actually cuts to Ewan for a very brief period, just long enough to note his reaction to Logan's assertion. 
    I suspect that his attitude towards Iverson's situation was not just an example of the old man being stern but evidence of just how short a leash he and his brother had as kids themselves. In this context the cut to Ewan makes a whole lot more sense; he seems to have heard an echo of his uncle's harsh words. It's possible Logan's sentence was verbatim. (x)

    Honesty Ewan is right. Greg shouldn't be siding with the Roys and he needs to take himself seriously. Also maybe Greg didn't need a quarter of a billion

    the worst thing is that if Greg went in for a hug with Tom he’d get one

    #he is literally looking for affection in all the wrong places #the roys and ewan and even comfrey like if greg would go to tom with these needs he’d have them met #but he never will bc there’s this wall in between them both where greg doesn’t ask and won’t ask #he can’t actually put his feelings out on the line with tom bc if he does and he gets turned down it’d be DEVASTATING #it doesn’t matter if his emotionally withholding grandpa doesn’t reciprocate a hug bc greg expects that #it doesn’t matter if c*mfry rejects him bc he doesn’t actually care about her #but with tom rejection is lethal so he can’t bring himself to be fully vulnerable with him bc it’s too risky #he accepts affection from tom but will never ask for it bc it’d fuck everything up if he asked and was pushed away #feeling soooooo normal about greg #girl michael #i forgot to tag this as tomgreg lollll #tomgreg

    Kendall Roy reveals his TRUE identity

    THE SITH LORD

    obikin•tomgreg parallels vol.2

    The chancellor gave him what his master could not

    a rent free apartment at the heart of Manhattan

    a fancy watch he had yearned for( promise never kept)

    a wife could be resurrected from death of child birth( promise never kept)

    a chance to be the hero of the day

    The chancellor threatened our poor slave boy to burn him alive

    Although, judging by the results, it looked more like he had it coming

    Young padawan’s closeness to the chancellor had aroused the jealousy of his master

    His master suspected the chancellor of having ulterior motives behind his conciliatory appearance

    The young one defended the chancellor by saying that he had always been taken care of by him, but in fact the only person who had ever looked after him was his master

    But behind the mask, the appalling truth is, the Sith Lord seemed to be not the puppet master, he’s just a puppet being manipulated by someone behind it

    our chosen one finally spoke out his ambition

    click the link above to see more parallels I found

    Rewatching 1x05 and God God God so many Ewan thoughts he's such a good character

    Him being sweet with Isla because he IS a good grandfather (I can imagine him finding it admirable that Roman is being a father to a child that isn't his)

    The mention of the 'begging letter' that Ewan sent. It's not clear whether this was him coming to Logan for money or to their uncle to secure his ownership of the ranch but it's clear that it's a sore point for both of them. Ewan is meticulous and oversees his world with a keen eye (see: Logans line about him not eating a blueberry until it had been marked in a ledger). He likes to know exactly what he has. And yet it's clear that a pivotal moment for him was having to ask someone else for help, and in this respect we know he's like Logan. He doesn't like to appear weak. So having a daughter who had to come begging to him and a grandson heading in that direction must be beyond disappointing too him. He didn't want to raise beggars, he wanted to raise hard workers.

    But he didn't want to raise people obsessed with work either. We know this from his Bertram Russel quoting in the car. He thinks believing work is important is an early sign of a mental breakdown. That mixed messaging must have really done a number on Marianne. At least, unlike Logan, I don't think Ewan is lying when he tells people how he wants them to be

    And then there's the apology. Ewan says he thought Logan was ready to apologise and to this day we still don't know for what. Rose? Money? Something completely different? But Ewan is desperate to bury the hatchet, travels all the way from Ottawa to do so. He's angry with his baby brother but wants to forgive him so bad. So Kendall coded of him
