Marty gets a passport photo taken and then shows Ruth where the money is and tells her he trusts her to handle it. Wendy and Helen are already on the boat when he gets there. They are a few days from opening and all seems to be well. He’s anxious to take off though. Wendy tells him that Charlotte went to school so there’s that. Cade is chirping in Petty’s ear but it’s nothing that he didn’t know before. Petty starts talking about Russ and Cade hits him with a tackle box. He realizes that he can’t go back. He beats his head in.
Then he sinks the body. Wendy gets home to find Darlene there. She tells her about Jacob’s death and that she will do whatever it takes to stop the casino unless Wendy gives her Mason’s baby. Cade goes to Ruth for an alibi but she isn’t willing to play ball. Marty goes to social services about getting the baby into a home. Jonah is on his way home when Darlene grabs him. She wants to send a message and shaves part of his head. Cade goes back to cover up Petty’s car. A park ranger almost writes him up for being in the park after closing. Darlene has guests offering support. Marty shows up and gives her Mason’s baby. It’s a foster situation. She can adopt if no parents come forward in two years.
Charlotte is on the Langmore land talking to Wyatt about moving in with him when he goes to college. Cade gets home. He tells Ruth about the ranger and wants money to get out of town. Otherwise he will tell Wyatt what happened to his dad. Ruth isn’t turning over the money. She tells Wyatt what she did. Wendy gets home to find that Marty gave Darlene the baby and made the plans to get away. She’s upset that he didn’t think they would pull it off and made plans without her.
The next day Marty heads out to finalize the plans for the escape. Helen swings by the house unannounced and just reiterates how impressed she’s been by them, and Wendy in particular. At the office, Marty has a run in with Cosgrove. He takes it at first but then starts to yell. Cosgrove leaves. Charlotte goes by the trailers looking for Wyatt. He’s still not back and she ends up fighting with Cade. Ruth comes to her rescue with a shotgun.
Ruth drives her home. She hasn’t changed her mind but she needs to sleep in her own bed. She does in and instead helps Jonah shave his head. Marty and Wendy talk to Ruth about Cade. They want her to stay the night. Wyatt talks to Charlotte for a bit and then talks to the hallucination of his dad. He doesn’t know what to do. Marty wants to pay Cade to leave so that Ruth is safe with the money.
In the morning, Ruth joins family vacation and then gets the rundown on their escape. Wendy meets with Cade to pay him off. Then the family gathers to officially launch the boat. Cade took the deal and is driving away when he comes across a guy stopped with a dog in the road. Cade gets out and the guy kills him. Wendy told Helen about Cade and had him taken out. It’s almost go time. Marty comes to get Wendy and she tells him that they aren’t leaving the Ozarks.
Cade’s body is found. Wendy explains that they can’t run. They will never be able to stop if they do. Marty tries to counter that it won’t be sustainable but she doesn’t listen. She figures she has the cartel backing her and that will keep them safe. Marty gives a speech. While he talks, Cosgrove blows up the office. Wendy tells the kids they are still family and she loves them. Ruth goes to ID Cade. After the ceremony, Helen tells the Byrdes that Cade is dead. Marty just looks at Wendy.
So will Ruth blame the Byrdes or will she just join the family? I’m about that. They could totally just take in the three Langmores if they are going to stick around. I think she got a raw deal on the family front but things seem to be looking up. I also think that just because Petty is dead doesn’t mean they are safe there. They are going to infiltrate the casino and take them down that way. They will never be safe.
