Where did we stop on “Ozark”? | Entertainment and celebrity news

At the time when the netflix crime drama ozark returns for its fourth and final season on January 21 – or, at least, the first part of its final season – it will be almost two years since fans have seen the Byrde crime family. You may have forgotten some of the details of his last trick, especially if you watch as many TV shows as we do! So here is a reminder of where we left things.

At the start of Season 3, Wendy (Laura Linney) and Marty Byrde (jason batman) run a casino aboard the Missouri Belle, with Ruth Langmore (Julia Garnier) helping out when she’s not throwing rowdy clients overboard and attorney Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) moving to Ozark to oversee the Byrdes’ money laundering for the Navarro Cartel.

The Byrde family — which also includes teenagers Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) — might have done better in Season 3 if Marty and Wendy had been on the same page. But over the course of 10 episodes, Marty pushes back against Wendy’s expansion ideas, and Wendy goes behind Marty’s back and pitches legitimate business ideas to cartel leader Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) so Omar can make sure that her children are still being cared for. . Husband and wife are also fighting over the prospect of buying another casino, and they’re each making secret payments to their couples’ therapist, so there’s toxicity everywhere.

Meanwhile, Marty becomes friendlier with Maya Miller (Jessica Frances Dukes), an FBI agent auditing his businesses, but he reneges on his decision to turn himself in and become a federal government informant. He even engineered a financial boon at the casino to keep Maya.

Ben Davis (Tom Pelfrey), Wendy’s brother, moves in with her and Marty, and he falls so deeply in love with Ruth that he stops taking his bipolar medication to boost his libido. But Ben becomes erratic, threatening to blow the Byrdes’ cover at a charity event, then revealing Helen’s true line of work to his daughter. At the end of the season, Wendy leaves him in a restaurant for Helen’s henchman to kill him.

Ruth, now seeing Wendy as a “damn werewolf” for effectively signing Ben’s death warrant, leaves the Byrdes – seemingly for good – and partners with rising heroine queen Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery). Still, Wendy’s cruelty may have confirmed Omar’s notion of the Byrdes’ loyalty.

For her part, Darlene expands her drug trafficking territory, with the help of Frank Cosgrove (John Bedford Lloyd), a Kansas City mobster. She also sleeps with Wyatt Langmore (Charlie Tahan), Ruth’s younger brother, despite their age difference of four or five decades!

By the time of the finale, Helen sees the Byrdes as liabilities, and she even plots to expose Marty’s dealings with the FBI to Omar. But Omar seems to care more about the Byrdes than Helen, especially because Marty captured drone footage of the rival Laguna Cartel.

So, after ordering Wendy, Marty and Helen to go to Mexico, he has an associate kill Helen, shooting her point-blank on the tarmac.

And those of Netflix first images of season 4 shows Marty and Wendy still covered in Helen’s blood, so we can assume the new episodes will pick up where Season 3 left off!
