Historic Delusion Predicts Kendall’s Downfall

Logan regularly known as Roman “Romulus” as a nickname, though that was not his precise title. In historic historical past, Romulus was the founding father of Rome and its first king. Romulus had a brother named Remus. As the parable goes, when Romulus and Remus got down to construct Rome they had been unable to agree on the place to position it. Every brother wished to construct on separate hills. Each had been unwilling to budge. Romulus began constructing Rome the best way he had envisioned, placing a wall round his chosen hill.

Remus leaping over Romulus’s wall within the historic fable might foreshadow a scenario the place Kendall tries to thwart or invalidate Roman’s government selections as co-CEO. Now that Roman is lastly able of actual energy, there’s nothing stopping him from betraying his brother if Kendall continues to be egocentric and egotistical in damaging methods. He might kill Kendall in a approach Logan could not convey himself to do, which could clarify the partially crossed-out pencil mark on Logan’s letter. Logan had expressed to Kendall that he did not suppose he was a killer, regardless of his initials KLR. If Kendall pushes Roman far sufficient, he would possibly notice which of Logan’s sons is the true killer by the top of Succession.
