The 10 Wildest ‘Ozark’ Moments of All Time

Ozark, Netflix’s blood-soaked money-laundering crime drama, takes great pleasure in making viewers squirm. While the show’s action mostly plays out in a scenic Missouri vacation spot, the type of sleepy community where out-of-towners drink beers and drive boats all summer, the actual activities the characters engage in tend to be incredibly grisly, violent, and just plain unpleasant. Betrayal, murder, and torture are all on the menu. It’s not all fun in the sun — in fact, it’s mostly dark and shadowy.

After three nerve-rattling seasons, including the latest batch of episodes that recently dropped on Netflix, we wouldn’t have it any other way. The misadventures of Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) tend to be filled with surprises. Raising their children, protecting their business interests, fending off the FBI, and not killing each other in the process takes a lot of work. To celebrate the Byrde family’s persistence, we’ve gone ahead and assembled a list of the 10 wildest Ozark moments in the show’s brief history, the scenes and twists that made us gasp and cover our eyes. Climb aboard and read on.


Wendy’s lover gets thrown from a high-rise
Season 1, Episode 1
This is the big bang of Ozark twists, a shocking “splat” teased in the trailer for the series and dropped right towards the end of the first episode. As Jason Bateman’s Marty Byrde angrily approaches a Chicago office building, fuming about his wife’s affair with the smarmy businessman Gary Silverberg, he sees a body smack right against the pavement, hitting the ground so hard a shoe flies off. Some shows might have waited to kill off the character, letting Gary’s conflict with Marty stretch out for a whole season, but, as we quickly learned, that’s not the Ozark way. When I talk to friends or family about the series, the body falling from the sky is usually the moment people describe as an “in or out” scene. Either you’re completely disgusted and want to turn the TV off — a totally reasonable reaction — or you’re sucked in and can’t wait to find out what happens next. If you’re reading this list, we’ve got a good guess where your loyalties lie. — Dan Jackson

Ruth electrocutes her uncles Russ and Boyd
Season 1, Episode 9
Once Ruth had sniffed out that her Uncle Russ had turned informant for the FBI after a plot to kill Marty had been derailed by agent Roy Petty (since Russ had indeed snitched), it was practically only a matter of time until Russ was dead. What we didn’t see coming was that Ruth would be the one to take out her own family. Deciding they’d loot Marty’s hidden cash in his house and skip town, Russ and his brother Boyd ferry their motorized dinghy to the Byrde household, only to be brutally electrocuted by the charged waters around the dock with the same kind of rig that Ruth had tried to kill Marty with at her father Cade’s direction earlier in the season. Their deaths set off a chain reaction of bad times for the Langmore family, who suspect it was Marty’s fault. Even minor characters aren’t safe in Ozark territory. — Leanne Butkovic

Del Rio rips off Marty’s toenails
Season 1, Episode 10
Marty Byrde’s been through his fair share of torture. Yes, he was eventually held captive in an underground bunker in Season 3, but what was even harder to watch came in the first season’s finale when cartel leader Del Rio had his henchman rip off his toenails with a pair of pliers after one of Del’s men goes missing and they suspect Marty has something to do with it. It sure looks bloody painful, but what’s even wilder is Marty just forces himself to calm down to continue talking about his grand plan because, you know, gotta protect those now eight other toenails. Ouch! — Sadie Bell

Mason Young almost drowns his baby
Season 1, Episode 10
Once the Snells derailed the Byrdes’ plan to build Mason Young a church, and murdered his wife, the pastor started to lose his sanity. Alone with his newborn Zeke and without a congregation, the holy roller became a cause for concern, and proved he was one when he nearly drowned his son at the very end of Season 1. The entire scene leaves you on edge, as Mason walks straight into the lake with a crazed look on his face and dunks the infant underwater for what feels like forever. Fortunately, he lifts Zeke up and you hear a cry, as it turns out that he was just performing an eerie, frigid lake baptism……Read More>>
