Very wise.But I doubt he is half-polish.
And, yes, it’s very easy to believe Spiro is half-American.
Thank you for that quote. I’ve always interpreted that to mean Mr Koralis chose his widow to act as trustee for their son and not someone else, when it came to his company. So I imagine he would have transferred the company to her (made her legal owner in trust) for the benefit of Spiro. Implied in that is that Spiro would one day have full ownership and control of the company."My father left the company to my mother to keep for me... There is nothing said about a 'trust'."
[Why no actual mention of a "Trust", my opinion]... But how Mr Koralis would have gone about setting things up is the tricky thing, because “trusts” as we know them to be in common-law using countries such as the UK, Australia or US are not common in Greece, which follows civil law. Apparently if such a “trust” appears, it is usually in a will, but then there are legal problems. ...refer: http://www.helleniccomserve.com/houghtontrustsingreece09-21-10.html
And, thank you for this quote too: "Her will was very clear, a sizeable share to you and control to me." ….Which is why I said Mrs Koralis never honoured her late husband’s wishes, and gave control of the company to Zack.
Obviously, something happened to make her no longer want to keep the company in trust for Spiro. According to Spiro it was because Zack found it easy to manipulate his mother, but in back of my mind I kept open the possibility that she made the decision on her own: maybe, she’d become unsettled about adult Spiro’s character. She might have found Greek law amenably on her side when it came to 'revoking' her husband's wishes and have herself be seen as the legal beneficiary to all of his estate, who knows. And that could explain how she was able to divvy up Koralis Shipping between Zack and Spiro per her will.
And she ‘might’ is not she ‘is’.Since it was never mentioned that Zach has a second wife (like Willie said, "first wife" could be another way to say "ex wife" or "late wife"), she might be Gree.
I’ve never interpreted “first wife” to mean either “the late wife” or the “ex-wife” in a situation where the man has not remarried. So when someone speaks of their first spouse, I understand them to mean they have another one, or more.
Since Spiro is Spiro Koralis, and he’d mentioned that he was half-Greek plus the Koralis Shipping company had belonged to his father and it was never mentioned that his father was not Greek, I’d assumed Spiro was not Greek either on his mother’s side.
I felt that the Spiro-Zack feud wasn’t over, and Spiro could have popped back up in S3, upping the ante against Zack.
