Ozark spoilers follow.
Ozark star Julia Garner has promised fans an intense finale to the Netflix drama.
The show – which is ending after the second half of its fourth season airs later this year – focuses on Martin ‘Marty’ Byrde (Jason Bateman), a financial advisor who launders money for a Mexican cartel.
Garner plays Ruth Langmore, an intelligent and accomplished player in the Ozark’s criminal underworld. Season four, part one’s finale saw Ruth swear revenge on cartel lieutenant Javi (Alfonso Herrera), who killed her cousin Wyatt.
“If you wanna stop me, you’re going to have to f**king kill me!” Ruth screamed at Marty.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about the final ever episodes, Garner 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,” she teased. “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 drama’s showrunner Chris Mundy also recently revealed that the second part of Ozark’s fourth season is going to focus on “marriage and family”.
“The final tease really comes down to Marty and Wendy,” Mundy told Entertainment Weekly, adding that Ruth will also remain integral.
“We usually frame everything through the marriage, as much as Ruth is this gigantic part of the show, obviously,” he continued.
“For the Byrdes, at a certain point the final seven to me are about, at what time is it healthy to stay in, and at what time is it healthy to get out, in terms of that partnership?
“And so, to me, I really think the back seven is pretty intensely about marriage and family. And Ruth is an extension of that family.”
Ozark seasons 1-4 are now available to stream on Netflix.
