What would an episode of Succession look like if at least one of the Roys isn’t brooding for the majority of it?
In last night’s episode, Connor Roy, lamenting over his imminent wedding that may or may not happen, wanted to sing his emotions out at a karaoke bar.
Though Connor initially wanted to sing “Desperado” by The Eagles, he then settled on “Famous Blue Raincoat” from Montreal legend Leonard Cohen. “Guantanamo-level shit,” according to Roman Roy.
Naturally, the depressing affair led to some hilarious reactions on Twitter.
One user said he had never related to a Succession character more than Connor during last night’s episode.
Another user said she felt vindicated after she had sung Leonard Cohen at karaoke in the past.
One account even took it upon themselves to guess which song each character would sing at karaoke.
Several tweets said this weekend was a big one for Cohen, as indie rock group Boygenius named a song after the singer on their latest album The Record.
Of all the reactions, the funniest one might have even been on the show when his brother Roman refers to the karaoke session as “Guantanamo-level shit.”
