*Spoilers ahead for the season three finale of Ozark*

The season three finale was no exception, with Marty (Bateman) trying to get the FBI to take down a rival drugs cartel lead by Navarro (Felix Solis).

However, he ends up on a plane to Mexico with Wendy (Linney) and Navarro's attorney Helen (Janet McTeer) to attend the drug cartel's son's baptism.

Minutes after landing, Helen is shot in the head by one of Navarro's henchmen, before the criminal embraces Marty and Wendy and declares: "This is the beginning".

Viewers were left as stunned by the shock twist as the couple were, and took to Twitter to praise the show's high octane drama.

One wrote: "#Ozark season 3! What a jawdrop ending! Breaking bad who?"

A second tweeted: "Quite enjoying Ozark, AKA Breaking Bad, accounts' edition. More likeable characters than BB had."

A third agreed, writing: "Watch Ozark. It’s like Breaking Bad but more money laundering less drugs."

Meanwhile a fourth added: "Ozark is the best thing to happen to Netflix since breaking bad."

Revealing why he Navarro killed Helen over Marty of Wendy, show runner Chris Mundy told Entertainment Weekly: "As good as Helen is, there’s other lawyers in the world.

"But Wendy and Marty have now pulled off two impossibilities for him. One is getting a casino to launder through in the first place, which is sort of the holy grail of money laundering.

"And the second is that, at least in Navarro’s mind, their claim that they have the FBI on their side and can swing the power of the U.S. government in the intervention in the drug war against their rivals, that’s something virtually no one else can do, and that essentially tipped the scales for Marty and Wendy.”

Ozark is available to stream on Netflix now.
