It is “the most humiliating ending imaginable,” says The Guardian reviewer Lucy Mangan of Succession, episode 10. Eric Kane in Forbes commented, “(the episode) wraps up the story of Roy’s family in a way that’s both fascinating and harrowing”.

I knew “the idea of making Tom the successor” to Logan Roy was “the right end for a long time,” Armstrong admits in the final bonus episode, commenting on the subject of making Tom CEO of Waystar Royco. “While[Tom]is not the most powerful ruler you will ever meet, he is one of those people who rises to the top by submitting to the influential people around him,” explains the creator of “Caliphate.”
Speaking of the Roy siblings, Armstrong admitted that he “thought about their fate.” The creator of the show explains: “It’s not over (with the ending – ed.).” wanted, which is the prize fixed by their father, i.e. the possibility of succession. Roman ended exactly where he began. Shiv is still in the game, but he’s in an emotionally barren place. As for Kendall, these events will never cease to be the center of his life and the most important of his days and years. Continuing on the theme of the eldest member of the royal family, he adds that “while Kendall could start his own business or do something else, the chances of him attaining a status similar to that of his father are very low, and that is something that leaves a mark throughout his life.”
