Brian Cox

The tale of Game of Thrones season 8 controversy still lives in the minds of die-hard fans. It has been nearly four years since HBO’s money-making mint wrapped up filming, but people can’t stop talking about it. After all, the highly popular and record-breaking show divided its fandom with a controversial and a rather rushed-up final season. Even Succession star Brian Cox compared his show’s recent shocking episode with Game of Thrones’ ending.

Spoiler Alert: What was the shocking twist in Successions’ latest episode?

In the HBO hit’s latest episode, Cox’s character Logan Roy skips his son Connor’s (Alan Ruck) wedding in order to attend an important business deal. However, during the flight, Logan collapses in the plane bathroom. Despite their best attempts, the air stewards are unable to save him, and he dies on the plane.

What did Brian Cox say about his character’s death?

Speaking to The New York Times, Cox admitted he was surprised at his character’s death. He then compared the episode’s ending with Game of Thrones, “You think about Game of Thrones, when they didn’t know what they were doing at the end, and they had an ending which was not really satisfactory. And the audience was furious.”

“The [Succession] audience might be furious; they might miss Logan and say, ‘Oh, what are you doing killing off one of the most interesting characters?’ But it’s fine by me. I’m doing a lot of other stuff.”
