    I just had a weird thought.

    Is Ben really dead? Technically we never see him getting murdered in “Fire Pink” by the cartel’s henchman (unlike with Helen who is shot right in front of our eyes and the Byrdes) so I wonder if this could be a Snow White esque situation where the henchman has let him slip away (or he himself has managed to escape) and the body that’s cremated in the finale isn’t really his.

    At the same time I do realise this could be a stretch and that the whole purpose of us as the viewer not seeing his death is because we are being put in a similar position to Wendy and can’t bear to see one of the show’s only loving characters (or in Wendy’s case, her own brother) meet their end.

    I mean, Marty and Ruth must have looked at the body before burning it, no? I doubt he’s somehow alive. I think they abstained from actually showing the death since there was no need to actually show it. It wouldn’t have advanced or enhanced the plot in any way. Showing Wendy break down and it intercutting that with Helen’s henchman approaching Ben was ten times more affective.

    I think good TV shows know not to do stuff like: HAAA fooled you he’s not dead even though it makes no sense. Unfortunately Season 3 will have been all we’ve seen of him on Ozark unless there is some flashback in Season 4.

    If he’s alive, it would be the tackiest thing this show has have ever done.

    Chris Mundy addressed this exact question a year ago:

    It has been speculated amongst fans that the character, played by Tom Pelphrey, could make a return in the show’s fourth season, though Mundy has now put the rumour to bed.

    Speaking at a virtual PaleyFest panel for the show, Mundy responded to the prominent fan theory of Davis’ fate, saying: “I love the fact that people love [Ben] enough to come up with that theory.

    “I wish it were true,” he added. “But it ain’t true.”

    He could return in a flashback or something, but his character was killed.

    especially when it would totally undercut Wendy’s arc.

    This is what it boils down to. People (mainly men) just can’t fathom that Pelphrey’s character was a vehicle for Wendy’s development, because so often female characters are used in this same way.
