In the series, Roy's death came as a shock to the entire family, leaving the future of Waystar Royco hanging in the balance as his power-hungry children scrambled to control the narrative. Fans were equally stunned, given that the series offered no warnings about his impending death.
As it turns out, Armstrong chose to axe the character early in the season because he wanted to keep viewers on their toes. He said in a post-episode featurette, per Hollywood Life, “There’s a couple of sort of factors that play into where Logan’s death falls in our narrative trajectory. One is a sort of base one of like, ‘Oh, maybe it will surprise people.’ You know, I am not immune to such thoughts of wanting to keep the show exciting and fresh. I think much more prominent was the feeling that, if we’re going to do this, we don’t just want to see people crying and then have a funeral and be done with the show. We want to see how the death of someone significant rebounds around a family.”
Sounds like fans are in for quite an entertaining finale.
