“Ozark” fans are spoiled for choice when it comes to pondering which scene went too far — illustrated by the results of this survey being pretty darn close — but the sequence that came out on top was Camino Del Rio ripping off Marty Byrde’s toenails, a scene from the “Ozark” Season 1 finale, “The Toll.” Del is looking for his missing operative, Garcia (Joseph Melendez) — whom the Byrdes’ benefactor, the aforementioned nudist Buddy Dyker (Harris Yulin), killed to help the family escape — and is torturing Marty to get the information he wants. It’s a shot that’s both visceral and graphic, sure to induce a cringe in even the most hardened of viewers, and one for which 23.69% of respondents voted.
Coming in second, just a little more than 2.5 percentage points behind, is another scene from the Season 1 finale: Pastor Mason Young (Michael Mosley) nearly drowning his baby, Zeke, as selected by 21.08% of respondents. The newly minted single father was a mere 10 minutes removed from Marty showing him how to swaddle his young son when he decided to wade into the river and plunge the newborn into the water for what had to be longer than a standard baptism.
Cade Langmore (Trevor Long) bashing in Agent Roy Petty’s (Jason Butler Harner) skull with a rock was about a point and a half behind, with 19.59% of the vote, good enough for third place. Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) electrocuting her uncles went too far for 13.43% of those surveyed. Rival casino owner Anita’s (Marceline Hugot) death at the hands of her husband Carl (Adam LeFevre) managed to sway 13.06% of respondents, though perhaps they’re just mad at the lack of follow-up on what should have constituted a major plot point in the third season of “Ozark.” Bringing up the rear, Darlene Snell’s (Lisa Emery) decades-wide-age-gap-spanning love affair with Wyatt Langmore (Charlie Tahan) was enough to send 9.14% of the survey’s respondents over the edge.
