Why did she come back?
In the fourth episode of the second part of the fourth season, Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) located Garrison in Miami. The two joined forces to try to bring down the Byrdes casino.
Langmore learned that she inherited Darlene Snell’s (Lisa Emery) casino stock, which put her and Garrison in a position to own the majority of the casino.
The two wanted to ensure that the casino was no longer used for money laundering. Upon hearing this, the cartel hired Nelson, an assassin.
When Langmore found out about Nelson, she warned Garrison, who ended up shooting and killing him. While Garrison was shaken by the events, Langmore helped her realize what was needed.
The duo met with the Byrdes, the FBI and the drug cartel to form a deal over the casino, with the FBI sanctioning its use for money laundering.
Garrison is last pictured working in the casino at the Byrdes Foundation’s opening gala. She then said goodbye to Langmore before leaving for the last time.
