ozark season 4, episode 6 recap
Episode 6 begins with Agent Maya leading an FBI raid, but the truck explodes, killing her team. She is furious and tells Marty that four officers are in critical condition – she blames Omar. Marty doesn’t believe Omar orchestrated this; Omar tells Wendy she has to take care of Javi and wants a meeting with the FBI.
Omar is a problematic character to nail in Season 4. His end game isn’t straightforward.
Episode 6 confirms that Darlene survived the heart attack and is in the hospital. She blames Ruth for what happened because she went behind her back – she tells Wyatt she doesn’t want Ruth around them. Back home, Wyatt asks Ruth why she continues to work with Marty; man is confused and in conflict between love and family. Wendy visits Darlene in the hospital and asks her to let Jonah go or she will give him another heart attack. Wendy continues to use cruel and scathing words to bring down her enemies.
Darlene then returns home to see Ruth there, but Wyatt tells Ruth to give her partner time. Ruth is worried and tells her brother they can get out of here.
Wendy continues to try to solidify the future and asks Jim to be their official family lawyer – she reveals that they are laundering money for the Navarro Cartel and that Omar wants out; she asks Jim to oversee the case. Later, Wendy asks Jim what happens to minors discovered laundering money. It is clear earlier in the episode that she is plotting against her son Jonah.
Marty meets with Maya and the FBI to keep the case alive and tells them that Omar had nothing to do with the bomb; he asks for assurances for his family and affirms the idea that he can deliver Omar to them. A senior FBI official tells Marty to provide proof that Omar was not behind the bombing, so Marty asks the cartel leader to hand over Javi as proof.
And so, Omar asks Javi if he was behind the explosion and explains that it injured members of the FBI. He then tells Javi that it’s his turn to be the leader of the cartel as he wants to spend more time with the family. He declares that once the torch is entirely passed, the Byrde family is his (Javi intends to kill them). But we wonder at this point – does Omar believe ‘blood is blood’, or is he completely fooling Javi?
Javi loves to show up unexpectedly, and this time he’s doing it again at the casino. He tells Marty that Omar is stepping down and he’s the new boss. Javi wants to improve his game and move Marty to Macau to open more casinos. Marty calls Omar afterwards about his nephew and senses something is wrong. Omar wants Marty to tell the FBI they can have it all in the deal – the money, the roads, and the leadership.
To trap Javi, Marty tells him about the bombing and compliments him on his genius – Marty is completely bugged by the FBI. Marty gives him advice for future attacks and continues to praise him. The FBI is fed up with the taped conversation. Later, Javi introduces himself to Jim. Jim clarifies that he’s the Byrde family’s attorney, not his own, but Javi gives him a burner phone anyway.
An angry Frank Snr confronts Darlene about the money owed and her son. A frustrated Darlene shoots Frank Snr with a shotgun as he fumes. Another one biting the dust. Wyatt is upset about what Darlene has done, so Ruth tells him to leave town with her. Ruth lets Frank Jnr know that her father is dead and Darlene killed him. She also tells him that she will work things out, and then he can do whatever he needs to do to Darlene.
As we enter the final act of Episode 6, Wendy steps up her scheme against her son Jonah. She heads to the motel and convinces Sam to let her into his son’s room. She checks the computer but has no luck logging in, but manages to find some notes on the account numbers, so she takes a picture. Later, Jonah is freaked out because his account has been red flagged; Ruth tells him that he has no choice but to ask his father for help. Marty heads over and helps create a “no trace”. Marty suspects this red flag is from an outside party but tells Jonah not to worry as it is fixed. Later, Sam tells Jonah that Wendy came to the motel earlier — he knows his mom reported his account and put him in danger of arrest.
A few defining moments of the series end episode 6.
Wyatt confronts Darlene with the intention of leaving her but finds her crying; she learned that social services were coming for Zeke. Wyatt comforts her, which leads to passionate kisses. Wyatt then helps dig a burial for Frank Snr. It seems Ruth’s influence as a family member didn’t work.
Jonah returns home and accuses his mother, Wendy, of planting a red flag on his account. Marty is also disappointed in Wendy and argues with her about it. Wendy thinks it’s a lesson, and once again they argue about parenting methods. Wendy claims she tries to keep this “family one family”. Jonah is packing and Charlotte doesn’t believe what their mother did but still wants Jonah to come to Chicago.
The episode ends with Marty receiving a phone call; Omar will be delivered to the FBI in 12 hours. And then, Charlotte tells her parents that Jonah is gone.
Who is the real enemy? Episode 6 features complex relationships that could implode at any moment.
- Marty tells Maya she can get a job at the foundation after the ordeal is over. Maya declares that she wants to stay with the FBI.
