Ozark season four, part one recently aired on Netflix with this series marking the final outing for the crime drama. The last run will be the longest at 14 episodes and will be split in half. This is very much the final curtain for the Byrde family with the loose ends tied up.

What happened to Erin Pierce at the end?

WARNING: This article contains major spoilers from Ozark season 3

Season three introduced Erin Pierce (played by Madison Thompson) to Ozark. The teen accompanied her mother Helen (Janet McTeer) to Missouri for the summer.

Erin proved to be something of a liability and got into trouble without realising the danger she was in.

To make matters worse, Erin was clueless about her mother’s real line of work and how the lawyer worked for a drug cartel.

She discovered the truth after she was confronted by Ben Davis (Tom Pelphrey), who spilled the beans.

Erin was left shocked and when she asked Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) and Charlotte Byrde (Sofia Hublitz) about it, they simply confirmed it.

Now with Erin in possession of this knowledge, her life is on the line.

Season three didn’t really seem to reveal what happened to Erin but she presumably returned to Chicago to continue school.

There were no scenes between Wendy (Laura Linney) and Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and Erin, telling the teen to keep quiet or facing a possible threat on her life.

However, Erin is unlikely to last long now given what she knows about the cartel.

To make matters worse, Erin is likely to spill the truth to her father Gene (Douglas Dickerman), who was in the middle of an acrimonious divorce with Helen.

Gene may previously not have believed his daughter but with Helen mysteriously disappearing, her words are likely to hold more weight and he could act.

Then again, Gene and the rest of the Pierce family could endure a similar fate to Helen and be killed off by the cartel in case they put the operation in danger.

Is Erin in Ozark season 4?

Yes, Thompson appeared in the show after she was asking Charlotte about the fate of her mother who was now missing. 

Charlotte met with Erin in Chicago and revealed what had happened to her but also warned the teen to keep it to herself or risk a fate similar to her mother.

Prior to season four, actress Thompson posted an article confirming the final series had been commissioned by Netflix.

Thompson wrote under the post to her 17, 800 Instagram followers: “I don’t think I have ever been asked a question in my life as much as “is there an ozark season4?”!!!

“So happy to finally be able to share that the final season is happening 🙂 & don’t worry, we are going out with a bang #ozark #netflix #ozarkseason4 WHO IS EXCITED???”

Erin is still likely to be meeting a brutal end simply because she knows enough to pose a threat.

Previously speaking to L’Officiel about joining Ozark, Thompson said: “It was the best experience ever. It was kind of like going to summer camp.

“We shoot the majority of Ozark on location. It was Atlanta during the summer, it was beautiful.”

Reflecting on working with McTeer, she said: “I’d actually followed her career for many years and I had been a fan of Ozark before I joined the show.

“It was so cool to get to work with her because she has such a wealth of knowledge when it comes to not only breaking down characters but also the elements of shooting the scene; the blocking, where the camera’s going to go, the lighting.

“It was amazing to see her be a part of that process.”

Thompson added: “I learned so much from her, not only about being an actress but also about being a woman in the industry.”

Season three will see the major plot strands resolved including the one involving Baby Zeke, who was a source of contention between the Byrdes and the Snells.

Some fans are curious to know what happened to Helen Pierce who was killed and how the Navarro Cartel dealt with her body as it’s quite incriminating evidence.
