The first part of Ozark season four may have dropped earlier this year but our excitement for the final instalment of episodes has notched up tenfold with a gritty new trailer.
Warning: this article contains spoilers for Ozark season four, part one.
This time round, the anticipated set of final episodes – part two of season four – is now confirmed to be coming to the streaming platform a lot sooner than we originally thought.
Season four part one may have recently premiered on Netflix in January but the next set of episodes will be dropping on Netflix on 29 April. And April couldn’t come soon enough, thanks to all the burning questions we’ve been left with from its newly released trailer.
While we thought the date announcement teaser was tense enough, nothing could have prepared us for the chaos in this trailer. “I’m just sick of having blood on my hands Wendy. It doesn’t bother you?” Marty (Jason Bateman) asks while pouring himself a drink.
Wendy (Laura Linney) may have been one of our series favourites throughout the first three seasons but she’s definitely taken a dark turn in the latest series. She simply turns to Marty and says: “You’re so desperate to be the good guy.”
“She’s lost her whole family because she met us,” Marty explains and while it’s shocking, it’s true. Ruth Langmore’s (Julia Garner) unwavering loyalty to the Byrdes was tested (we thought) in the last series but after the shocking murder of her cousin Wyatt (Charlie Tahan) and Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery), we’re at a loss of what Ruth may do next.
Judging from the trailer, though, it seems like revenge and murder are the only things on her mind and she’ll stop at nothing to make Javi (Alfonso Herrera) pay for what he did. We see her shoot him in the middle of the street but could it just be a dream?
As Marty travels to Mexico to stand in for Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), the trailer promises a final instalment of episodes that will be full of violence, twists and much more action than the slower burn of season four part one.
Watch the trailer for yourself here:
While many fans were expecting the second instalment of episodes to be coming much later in the year, we’re most certainly not complaining at the prospect of new episodes dropping next month.
The unexpectedly great date announcement news was confirmed in an ominous trailer for the epic finale. In it, Ruth (Garner) is the focal point and while she usually is the character we gravitate to the most, this trailer shows an intense and reflective side of Ruth we haven’t really seen before.
“My childhood traumas are not like yours,” she narrates and can be seen tearfully driving her car before admitting: “You see, I’m a cursed Langmore.”
The ‘Langmore curse’ is something that has run throughout the series with Ruth’s uncle Russ (Marc Menchaca) and father Cade (Trevor Long) referring to it as well as, more recently, Wyatt.
It’s the belief that the Langmore family are cursed and will never amount to anything – something Ruth has been keen to break throughout Ozark. But it seems as though with the ensuing drama, betrayal and hatred possibly proving too much, Ruth may be driven to accept the fate of the curse after all.
The short trailer sees snippets of Ruth pulling a gun on Marty and Wendy and, in the final scene, contemplatively looking at the handgun she’s placed on the car seat beside her.
Although only a minute long, questions continue to whir with the new trailer: Who is the target of her anger? Can we really see Ruth killing someone? Will Ozark ultimately end in someone’s death?
Watch it here:
Speaking about the final episodes of Ozark, Garner has given fans a warning about the intensity of it all. In an interview with Digital Spy, she said: “It’s always funny because, by the time it comes out, I forget like, how intense it was.
“You’re just going to have to wait. It gets more intense. It gets very intense. The ending of season [four], the first half, was just the beginning of the intensity, that ending.”
The anger and deceit that’s been bubbling away between Ruth and the Byrdes will come to a head, we’re sure – but we’ll just have to tune in and find out exactly how this series will end.
One thing’s for certain, though, it’s set to be one hell of a finale.
Ozark season four part two will be available to stream on Netflix on 29 April.
