'Ozark' Season 4 Episode 5: Wendy unravels her sinister side as she watches Darlene die
Now, we all know how strong-headed Wendy (Laura Linney) is. She can do anything and everything to take whatever she wants. Also, she won’t even think twice before wreaking havoc on people who wouldn’t want her to have what is rightfully hers. Episode 5 of Season 4 sees her to be at her very best and when you see her doing those things, you feel how “bada**” she is.
Now, we know that Ben is dead. But in Episode 4, Wendy played the emotional card and did a deal with Shaw Medical Solutions for setting up rehab centres. She struck a chord with everyone with the emotional story of her brother being an addict. As soon as she mentions that her brother is missing, Darlene (Lisa Emery) plays a trick and put up posters all around the Ozarks that “Ben is Missing”.

Wendy believes that this makes everyone feel that they care. The next day, she goes up to the new sheriff and talks about the matter. To make matters even more interesting, Wendy files a missing person report with the sheriff and told her that the reason that they didn’t file an FIR earlier due to a family matter. She also said that she never thought the matter would reach to this point.
After getting out of the police station, she calls Darlene and thanks her for putting up those posters, telling her that she will help her in every way possible. Wendy also told her that she has filed a missing person report, so good luck with that as well. Darlene is really annoyed after hearing that. Elsewhere, Jonah reaches to meet Darlene and she asks why he told her about the posters? Jonah said that he didn’t think it was a secret. However, Jonah reveals that his parents took care of Sheriff Nix’s dead body.
Darlene goes out to meet Wendy late at night and asks about Sheriff’s body. She tells that Jonah told her about it. Wendy didn’t get worried about that and thanked her for helping her in Ben’s issue. Darlene threatens her, but Wendy had some stern words for her.
Darlene gets scared and starts having a possible heart attack. She asks Wendy to call an ambulance. Wendy takes her phone out of the pocket but doesn’t call the ambulance as she sits on the ground and watched her slowly 'die', with a sinister smile on her face.
Is Darlene dead? Let’s find out.
