Even as the children in the Roy family rushed for a seat at the table after the sale of GoJo to Waystar, the only ones safe were the veterans Gerri, Karl, and Frank.
It what turned out to be a surprising about-turn right from the season’s start, Gerri nixed Roman’s plea for a last-minute reprieve, coldly declaring that his sole concerns lay with the best interests of the company’s shareholders. Roman and Gerri’s relationship appears to have ended once for all.
