Shiv Tried To Prove Her Worth
Poor Shiv finally used her business expertise to prove her worth to the men in her life. But instead, Logan ruined everything and ordered to drop the deal. He pissed off all her achievement by pointing that this deal wouldn’t be great for their family. But there wasn’t concrete evidence that he could have won this situation. Logan wasn’t himself in the entire episode but ruining his daughter’s big moment is what Logan can do without being himself.
Elsewhere, Tom accidentally revealed that he was tracking Shiv’s fertility cycle. Well, being the prison wife is the least Shiv could expect. On the other hand, Logan is only responsible for his kids’ weird behavior as he continually pushes them to the thin line. However, what Logan may not realize is that his pitiful nature has helped shape Shiv’s confidence. Despite her father’s disagreement, she decided to go with the deal.
