The Season 3 of Ozark just arrived on Netflix with the viewers watching the new episodes. But there is one big question some of the audience members have is: does Ben Die?
The second season of Ozark saw Ben was often calling his older sister Wendy Byrde, who was left worried about him. However, Ben was not seen until the third season when he made quite the entrance as a substitute teacher who was left incensed by a cruel incident of cyber bullying.

Ben then later on arrived unannounced in the Ozarks after losing his job when he lost his temper with his class and destroyed their mobile phones. Wendy and Ben had a tense relationship after it emerged, he suffered from bipolar disorder.
She had been worried about her sibling and she had always tried to look out for him. Interestingly, Wendy was often concerned about her son Jonah might also have the mental illness. Over the course of the third season, Ben and Jonah got closer and so his eventual death was a tragedy.
Wendy ordered Ben to be killed after he got ensnared in the Byrde’s shady dealings. Despite trying to blame Ben’s new girlfriend and Byrde associate Ruth Langmore, Wendy knew she was the one at fault.
Marty later on burnt the body and Ben’s ashes were brought home. Wendy was beside herself with grief and then suffered a breakdown at calling a hit on her own little brother. After Wendy came home after running for some vodka, she had to face Jonah’s wrath.
The astute teen realised the truth and was raging at his parents for their hand in Ben’s death.
While his parents were in Mexico, Jonah cradled Ben’s ashes before rampaging around the house with a shotgun, an ominous hint of what could be to come.
Season two saw Wendy cross one line as she betrayed Marty over the riverboat casino. Now, she has crossed another line by ordering the hit on Ben.
