Ozark season 4 part 2 has finally arrived on Netflix, and with a crime drama like this 

one of the major questions about the final episodes is understandably about who dies.

WARNING: Major spoilers from Ozark season 4 part 2 ahead. 

As we know from Ozark season 4 part 1, episode 7, Ruth vows to kill Javi (Alfonso Herrera) because he murdered her cousin, Wyatt.  

The Byrdes try to keep this from happening, but when Wendy realizes their efforts are futile,  

she invites Javi to an after-hours meeting in Chicago. 

Ruth follows through on her promise and kills Javi. However, Javi’s death isn’t the only murder Ruth becomes involved in within Ozark season 4 part 2 

When she and Rachel realign, they find themselves the target of a man named Nelson. Long story short, Rachel kills Nelson. 

There’s so much more to unpack in the final episodes of Ozark, including in the series finale.
