Did Charlotte and Jonah leave Marty and Wendy?

One of the most intriguing storylines of Part Two is Charlotte and Jonah’s relationship with their parents. The kids know how horrible their mother is and feel that she never listens to them. So, after Nathan, Wendy’s dad filed a petition for the kids’ custody, they decided to go back to North Carolina with their grandfather. Marty and Wendy are shaken.

Marty tells them that they don’t want to go there because it’s not the ideal house for them to lead their lives. Jonah accuses Marty of doing everything that Wendy says and not having his opinion. Wendy begs in front of her father to not take her children away from her, but he didn’t listen and walked away.

Wendy loses her mind and checks into a mental facility. She said that she needs a bed and if she won’t, she will kill her father. Marty comes to see her and tells him that she won’t come out until she gets her kids back. So, Marty comes to Ruth and tells her to go to Nathan and bring back their children because Jonah will only listen to her. Ruth goes to Nathan and tells him that he doesn’t want the children because he doesn’t give a f*** about them. She pulls out a gun as soon as Charlotte and Jonah return, making Nathan tell the truth to them.

Jonah and Charlotte visit Wendy in the mental facility where she tells them that she won’t stop them if they want to go, but she doesn’t want to lose her children. In the end, Jonah and Charlotte come back outside as Marty waits in the car outside. Surprisingly, Wendy also returns.

A few moments, they all get into the accident that they showed in Part One.

Did Ruth die?

In the final episode, we see Marty and Wendy Byrde celebrating the Byrde Foundation. So, they organize a party at the Belle Casino. Everyone is there, including Camilla, Javi’s mother, and the new cartel leader. So, she asks Clare about the day Javi died. They both get into the conversation which takes a drastic U-turn when Camilla starts pressing her for the name of the killer.

Clare said that she was sorry about what happened to her son and when Camilla threatened her that she will cut her in half if she didn’t tell her the name of the killer, Clare told Camilla that it was Ruth Langmore. Camilla asks Marty and Wendy if they knew about it, Clare said that she didn’t tell anyone because she was really scared. Camilla sees Ruth and orders her bodyguard to track her movements.

She also says that if Marty and Wendy try talking to her, he should kidnap their children and take them to an unknown location.

Meanwhile, Ruth decides to leave the party and head back home. As soon as she reaches home, she sees a black car parked on her premises. Camilla comes out from the woods and says that she has waited for this moment. Ruth gets really agitated and says that her son was a “b***h” and now she knows from where he got it. She challenges her to pull the trigger and sadly, she does that.

Camilla shoots Ruth straight into her chest and that’s how Ruth’s story comes to an end.

Did Marty and Wendy get out of the business?

After the conversation with Camilla, the couple gets really nervous. They both hug each other and Wendy says that she doesn’t want to lose Marty. While Ruth got killed, the Byrdes were giving speeches at their own party. As soon as the party got over, they reached home and found the glass door broken. They look outside and it was Mel, the private investigator, waiting outside with the cookie jar. Mel said that Wendy’s brother wanted to go out and raise goats so it made him curious to check out what was inside the cookie jar.

If it’s not the cookies it’s evidence, he says.

Marty says that they can pay him anything he wants, he just needs to tell them his price. Mel says that their money is toxic and he doesn’t want it. He also tells them they don’t get to win this time around. At that moment, we hear a gun clocking and it’s Jonah having a rifle in his hand. He points the gun at Mel and there is silence.

A black screen appears, a gunshot is heard and that’s how ‘Ozark’ ended its run.

They enter a deal and in the last episode, we see Omar being transferred to some other place.

One of the drivers kills the other one and takes Omar out. He told Omar to run away, but he takes the gun out and points it at him. 

Omar turns back with a gun in his hand, however, the gun is empty. The man pulls the trigger and kills Omar.
