Fans reveal who they think the true villain of Ozark is

Reddit user yotortellini took to r/Ozark to start a discussion titled “Wendy is the main bad guy of the show.” No matter what your own views on the subject are, yotortellini makes some very compelling arguments to back up their assertion. First, they note, “Wendy is a Junkie. Not with drugs but for the feeling of being [in] danger,” before citing the fact that many of the issues the Byrdes have found themselves in lately arose from Wendy’s decisions. Marty and Wendy’s new fealty to the Navarro Cartel is a prime example: “She basically has chosen the cartel over everyone else in the world including her own brother.” Yotortellini goes on to make the case that Marty’s role in their crimes is as an enabler to Wendy (Laura Linney), rather than as the driving force behind them. They posit, “Marty’s problem is that he still loves her and is blinded by the fact that she is destroying their relationships with everyone.”

So how will this dynamic be resolved? Yotortellini offers their own thoughts: “It has been made abundantly clear that Wendy will not walk away from this life of crime … Marty will start to realize Wendy’s true colors when it comes to dealing with Ruth and Wyatt and how she has no intention of leaving the cartel, then he will finally realize what he has to do.”
