What I’m Watching: Ozark

Ozark: Season 4, Episode 6 “Sangre Sobre Todo” (B+)

So Darlene is still alive, which means that she’s only going to be more ferocious in how she’s going to come for Wendy. Calling foster services to report that Darlene might be less capable was a ruthless action on Wendy’s part, though anyone being in her orbit is definitely cause for concern. She has a real penchant for shooting people when they piss her off without any regard for the consequences, and taking out Frank Sr. is a decision that’s going to have disastrous implications. Wyatt seemed ready to leave with Ruth and officially break up with Darlene, but that plan didn’t work out as soon as he came in to find her devastated by the foster news. Javi’s presence in the Ozarks was disconcerting, but Marty made a major move to record Javi seemingly implicating himself in the truck explosion. It doesn’t feel like it will all work out so easily, and there’s enough discord just within the Byrde family to undermine it. Jim was definitely not happy to find out that his decision to be the Byrde family lawyer now has the cartel coming straight to his door. Wendy flagging Jonah’s transfer was reckless, and while Marty cleaned it up without any problem, it’s not helping with Wendy and Marty’s positive co-parenting. Jonah leaving at just the moment that they’re getting set to turn Navarro in was an ominous way to end this penultimate episode of the half-season, which is sure to end emphatically and intensely, and likely on a major cliffhanger.
