'Succession' creator ruins 1 mystery
And hot TV writer penning new 'Pirates' movie
What to know
Succession creator Jesse Armstrong says Kendall’s name was underlined not crossed out… It’s his show and he can say whatever he wants about this, but I was happy not to know the truth about the blue pen mark. The mystery is what makes it so interesting, because it’s messy and indefinite, just like life. People die and they’re gone and we can’t actually know what their intentions were. It’s OK to not have every answer. Let the mystery be, as The Leftovers theme tells us. Like imagine if Tarantino revealed what was in the briefcase. Nobody wants that. In my opinion, Armstrong just zapped a little bit of the magic from his final season. ✍️
