The theory that Ruth’s uncle Russ (Marc Menchaca) may pop back up in the fourth and final outing is one that seems incredibly unlikely, granted.
After all, he was last seen burnt to a crisp outside the Blue Cat after some sneaky wiring work by his own niece.
But this is Ozark and stranger things have happened than bringing people back from the dead or seeing its characters fake their demise.
However, the biggest clue he could make a shock return actually comes from actor Menchaca himself.
When asked about a return by The Natural Aristocrat earlier this year, the Ozark star replied: “I’d love to! Put the word out!”
And surely if he has survived and does return, he’ll be on the warpath to take Marty down.
Ozark is available to stream on Netflix now.
