Fans of the show, who held their breath for a long time after the Season 3 finale, expected at least one of the Dutton to die. But thankfully all of them were seen surviving as the Season 4 premiere revealed their fates. What did come as a shock was the unexpected and badass ending to the episode. We see Rip with a cooler in hand walk up to ex Market Equities employee Roarke Morris (Josh Holloway) who is fishing by a stream and approach him cooly. Out of nowhere, Rip opens the cooler which has a snake inside it and those it at him. The scene which mirrored the businessman's first appearance also served as his last appearance. The snake which was venomous bit him on the face and we see the antagonist go down with his mouth frothing. Rip says "good riddance," and walks away.
