Netflix series Ozark is going to be upping the ante for its last outing. Not only is the show getting a super-sized final series with 14 episodes rather than the usual 10 but fans can expect a massive climax. There is expected to be much death and destruction on the cards but will the Byrdes and the Navarro Cartel be defeated?
Has the Ozark series finale already been revealed?
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from all seasons of Ozark
Season three of Ozark opened with a very telling scene whereby Wendy Byrde (played by Laura Linney) was looking at grisly images from the Mexican drug war.
This scene demonstrated things were going sour for Navarro and there wasn’t any sign of improvement.
Could the writers of Ozark have included these moments to foreshadow how the story would ultimately end for the Byrdes?Wendy quickly realised things were going badly for her employers the Navarro Cartel as they appeared to be losing against warring factions.
In fact, during the show there was a horrific attack on Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) during his new-born son’s christening which saw pretty much everyone murdered apart from him and the infant.
However, Wendy and Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) managed to prove their worth to the cartel with the former proving herself immensely useful and resourceful.
She even came up with an idea for a legitimate trust fund for Navarro’s children should anything happen to him during the drug war. All of this seemed to point to things not ending well in the long run.
Also, it’s worth considering the Navarro Cartel are outsiders when it comes to America and the Ozarks where the show is set.
So, the Navarro Cartel is essentially fighting the drug war on two fronts. Firstly, in Mexico itself against rival cartels but secondly in Missouri where the group has the Byrdes working for them.
Both the Mexican drug cartel and the Byrdes are essentially outsiders and season four could well be defined by a battle between the locals (Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery), the Langmores and the KC Mob) versus the Byrdes and Mexican drug organisation the Navarro Cartel.
Just who will win remains to be seen but it could well be the locals given then know their territory and have more allies.
Also, the show is called Ozark and has always been defined by this tension between the Byrdes and the local people of the community they’ve into.
So, season four’s demise of the Byrdes would neatly dovetail with this notion of them never belonging this place in the first place.

The them versus us theme is also likely to run through Wendy and Darlene’s fierce animosity
Tensions between the two women hit an all-time high in season three after Wendy entered a custody battle with Darlene for Baby Zeke.
The former Chicago political lobbyist even resorted to dirty tactics to ensure she won in court.
Wendy provoked Darlene into attacking her and then documented on her phone, which she submitted as evidence to prove Darlene was unfit to be a mother.
However, thanks to testimony from Wyatt Langmore (Charlie Tahan), Darlene was able to keep hold of Baby Zeke.
The showdown in court is likely to have repercussions going forward into the last outing.
Although Darlene seemed to find some peace as she appeared to shore up a line of succession with Baby Zeke, Wyatt and Ruth Langmore (Julia Langmore) by her side, she could still be out for revenge.
With these elements all at play, things don’t look like they are going to be go well for the Byrdes and could signal the family is on borrowed time.
