Recap of the Second Part Season 4:
“The Cousin of Death” (Episode 8)
SPOILER ALERT: Ruth’s spot-on critique of the hypocritical narcissist Wendy’s last scene was so fulfilling that I’ve included it in this article for posterity’s sake: “Wendy? She has no heart. If it helps her obtain what she wants, she’ll tear your heart out of your chest.
When Marty and Wendy were playing cat-and-mouse with Ruth in the Windy City, this hour was padded to within an inch of its life by the flashbacks of Ruth’s painful upbringing.
‘Pick a God and Pray’ is the ninth episode.
Agent Miller’s dismissal of Marty’s urgent request for aid on the basis that “you’re just another criminal to me now” was sickening.
Charlotte apologizes to her mother for luring Ruth to Javi, stating, “I wasn’t thinking.” Actually, you were right for once.
‘You’re the Boss’ is the tenth episode.
One of the best parts of the film was the cold open, which used flashbacks to show us what transpired in Ben’s dying moments.
By helping distribute fliers for her deceased brother, Wendy goes to a new low (and that’s saying something, kids).
‘Pound of Flesh,’ the eleventh episode,
HIT: Ruth enlisting the aid of a sober Rachel Garrison (Jordana Spiro, who returns after a standout performance in seasons 1 and 2) in order to make the Belle legal was a clever turn of events that brought the story full circle.
Lowlight is a detective agency. Marty and Wendy will either drive Mel Sattem out of town or have him murdered, so it’s pointless for him to get closer to the Byrdes anymore.
‘Trouble the Water’ is the title of the 12th episode.
The criminal record of newly-minted billionaire Ruth is expunged, allowing her and Rachel to proceed with their hostile takeover of Belle. It’s great to see!
LOWLIGHT: Despite the fact that Marty and Wendy essentially committed attempted murder in broad daylight in front of scores of witnesses wielding camera phones, there is zero consequence from the aforementioned road rage incident.
‘Mud’ is the 13th episode.
On the basis of “my present circumstance, as I perceive it, is that I am not well, psychologically,” Wendy seeks to check herself into the local psychiatric hospital. When that doesn’t work, she comes back a few days later and threatens to murder her father if she doesn’t get entrance. Wendy, it turns out, is at her finest when she is self-aware.
LIGHT: It seems natural that Jonah, being a disobedient son, would contemplate taking gramps’s advice and escaping to North Carolina. However, implying that Charlotte would be willing to go along for the ride doesn’t wash.
“A Hard Way to Go” is the 14th episode of the series (AKA the Series Finale)
“It’s my fault,” Wendy finally admits, after a lengthy pause. It’s everything. ”
Flash-forward vehicle collision is the lowest sort of red herring, it turns out.
Marty and Wendy would have died if it weren’t for Ruth.
What was the reason behind Ozark’s last season being divided into two parts?
With final seasons or extended seasons like Stranger Things, we’re seeing more and more of this.
Speaking to the New York Post, Chris Mundy explained how the season-splitting influenced the drafting of the novel.
What makes it tough for writers is that they must conceive of it as a final act, but also know that viewers will perceive it in two distinct ways.
This means that the first half of the story must come to a close with a satisfactory finish, and the second half must seem like it’s just starting. Neither of those things seems to go together well on paper, so we’ve spent a lot of time discussing how to make them work.”
