The episode begins with Kendall on stage with a mic, rehearsing his song for the party, a cover version of Billy Joel’s Honesty.

He looks to his new girlfriend Naomi Pierce (Annabelle Dexter-Jones) as she says the rehearsal sounds good.

Kendall says it’s going to be a ‘full f**ing thing’ and exclaims it’s going to be ‘epic.

 

This new season will find Logan trying to secure familial and political allies in the aftermath of Kendall’s bombshell announcement. 

The trailers have teased that the family has been divided with most abandoning Logan, as they near the pivotal shareholder’s meeting where the family could lose the company to Stewy (Arian Moayed) and Sandy Furness (Larry Pine).

Kendall reveals in one of the trailers that he wants to take down his father, but he also doesn’t want the family to lose control of the company.
