WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Ozark season 3.
As soon as he arrived in the Ozarks, it was clear Ben wasn’t a character who could merely blend into the background.
Ben’s erratic behaviour quickly caused problems for his sister and her husband Marty (Jason Bateman) as they tried to expand their money-laundering business.
As a result, it landed him in trouble with wicked lawyer Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) which ultimately led to his death at the end of the series.
However, the one person who Ben arguably made the biggest impact on following his introduction was Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner).

Ruth was hospitalised by the son of the leader of the Kansas City Mob but was heartbroken when Marty failed to physically harm him as a result.
Marty instead cut ties with the KC Mob but this wasn’t enough for Ruth and Ben.
Ben decided to take matters into his own hands and sped to the KC Mob’s base looking for Frank Jr.
Before long he was left speeding away as Frank’s men emerged ready to attacked the sole hero – but it’s in this scene where one fan is convinced a plot hole lies.
