Ozark Season 4 Part 2 Review

This review is going to talk about the second half of the finale season of Ozark, minus the finale of the show. So if you have no idea what Ozark is stop reading, go watch the first four and a half seasons on Netflix now and come and read this afterwards. If you know what Ozark is and haven’t watched Season Four yet as you were waiting for the second half of the season also stop reading this review and go watch the first half of the season then come back and read this. Alright now that we have the obligatory spoiler talk out of the way, I promise you there will not be an ounce of spoilers that pertain to the second half of the final season in this review.

I think its very important to start off by saying after watching the explosive first half of the final season of Ozark, I was more than disappointed that I had to wait to see what madness and chaos the second half was about to rain down on The Byrdes and Ruth Langmore. That first half of the season was intense and quite frankly insane. Where was that for the second half? Ozark Season 4 Part Two lacks that fire and passion and absolute madness that the first half of the show contained. The second half of this season is focusing on tying up all loose ends and putting a bow on the season and episodes 8 through 13 set everything up for the finale (which we will talk about the Monday after the show releases).

Tensions are hot between Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) as they both have different ideas as to what they need to do to move on with their lives, protect their family (despite Wendy killing her brother, I guess family is subjective in this context) and possibly escape the cartel life they’ve managed to find themselves heavily involved in. Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) still seems shockingly calm and collected throughout all of this, while Jonah’s (Skylar Gaertner) relationship with his parents is still as fractured as ever. Aside from having the FBI breathing down their neck about wanting to play ball with the cartel and have an inside eye so to speak, the Byrde’s also have to contend with Navarro (Felix Solis) even though he’s in prison, he still can pull the strings, and the person they never wanted to go against them Ruth (Julia Garner) who is out of F’s to give ever since Wyatt (Charlie Tahan) was killed. Can the Byrde’s overcome insurmountable odds, or will Ruth get her vengeance for Wyatt?

There is so much that has to be processed and developed in this latter half of the final season, and while the show does manage to answer all questions, the answers it provides may not satisfy the audience as a whole. There is plenty it does right though, but it lacks the intensity that the first half packed.

However, the performances in this second half of the season is what is going to nab Laura Linney her Emmy for her work in Ozark, and will give Julia Garner her third much deserved Emmy for her portrayal of Ruth. Everyone in the cast is top notch in the final episodes of Ozark, but Julia Garner and Laura Linney truly shine throughout the final season.

Ozark Season Four Part Two starts streaming on Netflix on April 29th 12am PT/3 am ET and our spoiler filled review of the finale will be live on May 2nd at 12 pm PT/3pm ET

About The Author

My earliest movie memory, outside of my home theatre in my basement, was going to the local Video 99 and wanting to rent ET only to be told by the shop owner it was playing down the street in theatres. My love for cinema has been alive for as long as I can honestly remember. I would frequent the cinema minutes down from my house daily. It was a second home. Movies are an escape from the everyday world, a window into the soul, a distant friend. If I’m not watching a movie, I’m probably watching a tv show, if I’m doing neither I’m asleep.
