    Just finished Season 3. In these weird times it was actually comforting in a way as I would make me think "hey I'm at least dealing with laundering for a drug cartel!"

    She said she made the call prior to the dinner they were having. She told Marty that.

    Enjoyed Season 3 -- must admit, I was waiting for Helen's demise.

    Also, in the last Saturday Night Live at Home, Ozark was mentioned twice. Nice to hear recognition of a great series.

    He certainly is at the end. Ever dealt with a bi-polar person, though? Not fun.

    With the numbers it did, that WOULD be a surprise.

    completely agree I thought he was the series highlight. Surprised to see otherwise here. I’ve been avoiding all online chat about the show.

    IMO Ozark is the best show on TV since Justified was cancelled.

    Was Justified cancelled or did it just run its course? I thought the final season was a nice wrap-up of the principal characters. Didn't feel like an abrupt/unexpected cancellation to me. I walked away happy.

    "Justified" finished its run. It was never cancelled. I believe it ran for seven seasons (or close to it).

    The creator of Justified started planning a natural end of the series during season 4 when Elmore Leonard passed away whose short story “Fire In The Hole” the series is based on.

    Ozark copies a lot of Justified. I don’t there’s any tv series that more obviously copies another.

    Err, no? But anyway, I just finished all 3 seasons (not series, you Brits) and thought it a better, less pretentious version of Breaking Bad.

    I feel deprived that Ben wasn't executed on screen, because I would have cheered. Granny and her toy-boy is tough to swallow. How much of Jonah's $5000 is left over after incorporation fees, etc? (I have looked into this.) Can people really fly into/out of USA with no border checks?

    Ruth is amazing. I was ready to quit after the first few episodes because she was so conniving (curly haired women also trouble me), but she grew on me like a welcome tumour.

    Why the Ben hate? I thought that was a cool twist for the season. I guess people don't have black sheep in their families, who always seem to lose their $h1t at the worse possible time.

    I think the series explored some interesting areas this season -- it was non-stop plot driven without any real time spent on character analysis (other than Ben the brother, ironically enough) -- and I enjoyed it it. But, those final seconds in the ending just seemed a wee bit too forced to to place a dramatic close ahead of any real plot progression.

    I having trouble exactly seeing what Helen's major "sin" was regarding the cartel. Was she executed because Marty/Wendy are just that more valuable to the cartel (as the minds behind the casino and manipulating the FBI to arrest rival drug organizations) in comparison to she just functioning as a lawyer?

    Ultimately, I found the Ben character interesting -- the only man willing to tell the truth poetically suffers from mental illness and is summarily executed by the sociopaths who are considered "sane."

    Wendy showed allegiance by having her troublesome brother killed.
    Helen was aggressively moving along lines of potential self-interest.

    If Marty was truthful, he would be dead in episode one, season one. Truth is not an option for sane members of this family.
