Alright folks it’s time to watch the Succession season 3 finale, and we've been dying to see this one ever since episode 8 culminated last Sunday night. Possibly one of the best and most quotable episodes of a series filled with those episodes, the Roy family drama peaked not once but twice. So, we'll dive in once we find a mineral water critic.

Succession season 3 finale date and time

Succession season 3 episode 9 "All the Bells Say" is scheduled to broadcast at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max on today (Dec. 12).

The finale left us with massive questions, but we at Tom's Guide believe Kendall Roy will be alive and ... well, we wouldn't say he's well. He's sort of become a giant mirror image of that one episode where Bojack Horseman (whose writers he was courting) was falling asleep in a pool. 

There's also the question of how things will go in the family now that Roman and Geri's ... situation? ... is known by all. We wouldn't be surprised if Logan's broken and burned his phone since last we saw him, as that errantly-sent photo sent him into such a fit of anger.

Of course, though, the big topic is all about the GoJo-Waystar Royco merger. And according to HBO's official episode description, it's not going well. Supposedly Lukas Matsson "has his own vision for the future GoJo-Waystar relationship," one that requires a tag-team of Shiv and Roman to "manage the potential fallout."

On top of that, Connor is going to remind his siblings of "his position in the family." And if that all (plus the status of Kendall) wasn't enough, it seems like Greg's going to try and date a contessa.

Here's everything you need to watch the Succession season 3 finale (you can also get ready for Succession season 4, by the way). Plus, watch the trailer below:
