In Season 3 of the Netflix series ‘Ozark’, we saw Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) getting away from the Byrdes. She believed that Ben died because of Wendy (Laura Linney) and moved away. Although everything she has learnt till now has been taught by Marty. However, she is looking for revenge now and she’ll do anything to have her way with the Byrdes.

During the first episode, we saw Ruth and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) getting closer to each other after Ben’s death. They believe that Ben loved them both and wanted them to have a good life. However, his death has made them bitter. Ruth is now working for Darlene (Lisa Emery) and Wyatt (Charlie Tahan). Ruth tells Darlene that they should sell these drugs to one of the people show knows and that can help them get back in the game. Darlene disapproves at first, but says yes to the meeting. However, Darlene calls off the deal and says she won’t give her stuff to anyone.

Ruth is angry and tries to do her work. On the other hand, the differences between Wendy and Jonah have crossed all the limits. Jonah won’t give any chance to Wendy.

She gets really angry and when Jonah was doing a test run for Ruth, she cuts off the electricity of the basement and denies Jonah a chance at that. As a result, he calls Ruth for changing his workplace, but Wendy arrives at the right time and tells Jonah to not go closer to Ruth because she was the reason behind Ben’s death.

Jonah walks away with Ruth. Meanwhile, Ruth, who is adamant of selling drugs, lies to Darlene’s workers and says that the deal is on again. Wyatt sees her and confronts her at Lazy-O Motel. When Ruth shows some attitude to Wyatt, he snaps and says this is not about business for her. She just wants to have her way with Marty. Wyatt also says that she fights with everyone she works for because this is who she is and the only reason she has Jonah with her is that she wants to get back at Marty.

Wyatt walks away as Darlene gets to know that she is trying to move her drugs. She threatens her to never do that again and leaves.

Wendy and Marty make a plan to meet Clare in Chicago and Charlotte wants to go as well so that she can meet Helen’s daughter and her friend, Erin. Jonah declines the offer and as soon as Charlotte was going to ask him, Wendy says that she shouldn’t waste her time because he isn’t worth it.

During the final moments of the episode, Wendy, Marty and Charlotte reach Chicago for the meeting while Jonah spends time with Ruth and some of her pals.

‘Ozark’ Season 4 (Part 1) is currently streaming on Netflix.
