Oh yeah, I forgot about Buddy (and his death/funeral was one of the better parts of S2). Petty is symptomatic of how Ozark fails at what BrBa did right: It's a laundry list of depraved shit. None of the adult characters can exist without some extreme, sexual quirk and/or being psychopathic. BrBa used the horrific scenarios to push Walter over the edge. Marty and Wendy went into their deal with both eyes open and most of the recurring characters are perfectly aware of it. There's no real grounding other than a collection of character arcs that might end in a killing off.
Jacob and Cade were alright villains, I guess (Though it was really ####ing stupid to kill off Petty and Cade at roughly the same time).
