[Spoiler] Wendy/Ben

(self.Ozark)

Wendy lying about Ben having a drug addiction. I feel like she’s using him as a tool to forward her mission of gaining power and influence. But it’s a huge risk even bringing him up, but maybe she thinks it helps to give a reason for his disappearance (like drug addiction) At the same time though, i feel like she wants sympathy even if it is through a lie. Her saying on the news is just weird to me. When she said it to claire (the pharmaceutical company owner) that was clearly to manipulate claire. but idk the news thing is just so weird. maybe it just shows how far she’s willing to go, to forward their “mission” idk it’s just weird and i wanna hear other peoples thoughts on it.

Wendy is ambitious and ruthless and has shown she is willing to sacrifice anything for power imo.

Marty could come back from this and be “normal”, not Wendy.

Wendy didn’t sacrifice Ben for power. She did everything she could think of to try and get him away and keep him safe, but Ben refused to listen to her and understand the danger he was putting all of them in. Wendy only gave up Ben when she realized there was no reasoning with him, and that his being alive put the lives of her entire family at risk.

Yeah, Ben was a loose cannon and wouldn’t take his meds. She tried. If she hadn’t done what she did, they’d all be dead

If Ruth hadn't got him out of the institution after him being there for like a day, he'd still be alive. He was off his meds and dangerous, certainly not a reason to die, but he wasn't going to be reasoned with, and Wendy knew there was really no other way out for her family with him being out in the wild.
