OK, boars: it's time to watch Succession season 4 episode 2 online, and this time we've got a chess board that's still reeling from episode 1. With Shiv having pushed Tom out of their marriage, he arrives needing to figure out how to cement his place in the Waystar Royco pyramid.

Succession season 4 episode 2 date, time

U.S. date and time: Succession season 4 episode 2 airs today (Sunday, April 2) at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on HBO, the same time it hits HBO Max.
U.K. release date: Monday (April 3) at 2 a.m. GMT on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
AU release date: Monday (April 3) at 1 p.m. AEDT on Binge and Foxtel Now.

After a delicious opener filled with Succession's standard insults and withering one-liners, we slice into the next of the final 10 episodes, which is titled "Rehearsal." As to why it has that title? Check out the official description from HBO:

After Shiv discovers that Tom is following Logan’s playbook, she, Kendall, and Roman consider backing Sandi and Stewy’s aggressive play on the Matsson deal. Meanwhile, Logan gives an impromptu pep talk to the ATN newsroom… and outsources a tricky conversation with Kerry. Later, Connor tries to make the most of his rehearsal dinner when Willa goes AWOL.

Yes, we're going to experience Connor's rehearsal dinner. From Logan's worst birthday ever to the first gathering for his farcical candidate son's wedding? You're spoiling us, Jesse Armstong.

As for what else to expect, as we noted in our Succession season 4 premiere recap, it feels like Roman's being set up as a possible defector. He didn't want to go against Logan (who is going to ask for his help with the Mattson deal), and wanted to stick with The Hundred instead. While the latter was clearly going to fail faster than you can say "Semafor," it's clear that he might feel like he's being ignored.

Here's the trailer for the rest of the fourth and final season of Succession, the best HBO Max show currently on the air, and we've got all the details about how to watch below.
