I'm not sure how far ahead they are in writing this show but I think the only reason they didn't show Ben getting killed was to leave it open in case they want to go with him still being alive. 

Fwiw

And despite some fan theories that Ben survived his cartel encounter, Ozark showrunner Chris Mundy put an end to any speculation that he is alive during the show’s PaleyFest panel. According to TV Line, the breakout star of Season 3 was, indeed, killed.

“I love the fact that people love [Ben] enough to come up with that theory,” Mundy said according to TV Line. “I wish it were true. But it ain’t true.”

Could be but I doubt they'd admit it if he was alive. 

Westworld spoiler:

Much like Anthony Hopkins after Season 1 of Westworld. They said he won't be back on the show to keep the surprise when he did

True, but while Pelphrey did a really good job with the role, and Ben was certainly a tragic figure, I wouldn't want to see any more of him.  That part of the story is done and let's move forward and see how things wrap up with Wendy and Marty.

I agree and I do think the intention was that he died. I just think they may have left it somewhat open just in case they decided to go that way. That's why I was asking how far ahead they were writing. If they're just writing it as they go along, after each season, they could try and appease fans that want him back. I don't think they should.

This.  With this being the last season there is plenty of story to tell without the need for Ben.

Eh, making a change to appease fans is the worst thing a writer can do.  Tell the story and let the chips fall where they may.

Agreed.
