Ozark is back for season 3, and fans can’t wait to dive back into Marty Byrde’s (Jason Bateman) complicated criminal life. It’s been over a year since the last season aired. So, for those who need a quick refresher, here’s a quick recap of Ozark season 2.
Ozark | NetflixMarty and his family are now Ozark casino owners
In the second season, Marty and Wendy (Laura Linney) pulled together financial and political resources to build a casino. With the Navarro Cartel and the FBI breathing down their throats, they figured the casino would be the perfect way to launder the money without being present.
In order to get the casino built, Marty makes a deal with the Kansas City Mafia to unionize their workers. However, when the cartel causes trouble, Marty has to nix the deal and finds himself on the mafia’s hit list. At the end of the season, Marty narrowly escapes the bomb they send to his office.

Before the casino is built, Marty plans to leave the Ozarks as soon as it is up and running. But knowing that they could never really escape the cartel, Wendy decides to stay and embrace her newfound power.
Rachel is dead
Rachel (Jordana Spiro), the owner of The Blue Cat, was struggling throughout season 2 because of the predicament Marty had put her in. FBI Agent Roy Petty (Jason Butler Harner) blackmails her and gives her drugs in exchange for information on Marty.
But some of the drugs she’s taking come from the Navarro Cartel. And unbeknownst to her or Agent Petty, those drugs were actually tainted by Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery) in an act of revenge against the cartel. Rachel takes the poisoned drugs, overdoses, and dies in season 2.
Darlene caused a lot of trouble in season 2 of Ozark
Rachel wasn’t the only major character to die last season. After agreeing to let Marty build the casino on his land, local drug kingpin Jacob Snell (Peter Mullan) is poisoned and killed by his wife Darlene.
