The episode begins with Sandi (Hope Davis) arriving to meet Logan and the family, as Roman (Kieran Culkin) says they are acquiring GoJo.
Stewy and Sandi both think they’re “ambushed,” but Logan says they’re “bleeding” with the ad money.
Sandi says it’s bigger than anything they’ve ever envisioned and it will restructure the business.
Logan says if they really don’t like him they can kill him, but Stewy said they didn’t.
Tom (Matthew McFadyen) calls Shiv (Sarah Snook) and updates her, but she wasn’t feeling well and she called.
Shiv arrives on the plane and chats with Roman about the flight to Italy en route to their mother’s wedding.
Roman wants Shiv to tell his mom about this new guy because he doesn’t trust her but Shiv doesn’t care.
Roman also hints that neither Tom nor Shiv will be a significant part of the business when he takes over, but Shiv asks what’s wrong with him.
Kendall arrives in Italy with a freshly shaved head, as he is greeted by his mother, who jokes if he returns from the front.
Caroline questions Kendall about this route, and she tells him that Logan doesn’t want Kendall to be near him during the festivities.
Kendall meets Peter and Kendall leaves saying he will check out the program and see her next month, but she tells him not to be so dramatic.
Shiv and Tom arrive next, with Connor (Alan Ruck) and Willa (Justine Lupe), Connor revealing a Politico reporter asking about Willa’s work history.
Roman arrives and checks in on Gerri (J. Smith-Cameron), who draws a line with Roman, asking him to stop sending pictures of his cock, now that she’s with a new man.
She says he has to find another outlet, but Roman tells her not to open Pandora’s Box because “there are just more dicks in there.”
Roman goes out to meet his mother and Peter, who says he’s “very excited about this all”.
Roman asks how his business is going, saying he’s cleaning a nursing home, but she says he’s “huge”.
Roman asks if she’s safe and if there is a prefix, saying he’s worried she might rush, but it appears there isn’t a prefix.
Kendall walks with Comfry (Dasha Nekrasova), asking them if they have any offers but she says “not really”.
She says there’s a podcast that does a “deep dive” on the whole family, but it tells her to “keep an eye out” on it.
She asks if she can point and she goes to kiss Greg (Nicholas Braun), who Tom and Shiv notice.
Shiv says he’s “hitting over her weight” but wonders if she’ll be interested in the “real him”.
The family get nervous when Matsson sends a cryptic tweet about him “feeling lucky” and heading to Macau.
Connor talks to Willa who says she can go underground but it doesn’t work for him … and he has another idea … propose to her.
Willa is completely confused but doesn’t respond right away … she ends up saying yes, but then says she needs to think about it.
Gerri notices that the price of GoJo goes up as Shiv thinks Matsson “fucked” him as he sends out another tweet with all the emojis on it.
Still, Roman thinks they are “good”, but Logan arrives with Marcia (Hiam Abbass) as they meet Peter.
Peter wants to tell Logan about his “UK government contacts” and he wants to give back.
Logan tells Roman what Peter said and wants Roman to fix him as Kendall arrives saying he wants to have dinner alone.
Logan says he’ll answer her when Kendall leaves, while Logan asks Roman if he should, as he tells Kerry (Zoe Walters) to have rooms because he wants to have Matsson on the phone.
