Ruth's dad gets out of jail. Approval for a riverboat casino calls for Wendy's political skills. The Mexican cartel demands reparations from the Snells.
Darlene and Ash cremate Del's body on the Snell farm. Marty and Jacob send Ash to Chicago with Del's car and credit cards to establish Del's presence there, enabling them to claim he was not in the Ozarks. Without Del there to negotiate, Marty and the Snells meet with Helen Pierce, the Navarro Cartel's attorney, to discuss the casino. Marty discusses with State Senator Brock Mercer the possibility of introducing legislation to allow casino construction. Mercer is apprehensive and tells Marty to go to "the lake house".
Marty and Wendy learn this is the home of businessman and political donor Charles Wilkes and meet him to persuade him to back the legislation. Helen shows the Byrdes video of Ash using Del's credit card in Chicago. She will overlook Del's death (and Garcia's) in exchange for "reparations" from the Snells but does not tell Marty what will be satisfactory.
At Darlene's insistence, the Snells refuse to offer money, but Jacob understands a life must be paid, so he kills Ash to save Darlene. Marty and Wendy hide the truth from Charlotte and Jonah but acknowledge to each other that Ash's death satisfied the Navarros, meaning the casino project is still alive.
