comment How to delete partition disk0s4?
Yes, judging by the screenshot OP's case looks ideal, although disk0s3 might still be present if it is a recovery partition. (Source: yesterday I successfully merged disk0s2–disk0s4 with recovery partition disk0s3 in-between. Didn't get any errors and mergePartitions automatically resized disk0s2 to new, bigger size. Didn't need bless either, probably as the start of disk0s2 stayed the same. (I also tested internet recovery afterwards and, as it works, decided not to worry about the missing recovery partition.))

comment How to delete partition disk0s4?
In my experience, partitions given to mergePartitions (e.g. disk0s2 & disk0s4) describe a continuum, not a two single partitions. In other words, inputting disk0s2 and disk0s4 also nukes disk0s3 if present. Also—on El Capitan at least—the first option must be a real format diskutil can handle (see diskutil listFilesystems), albeit it is ignored when no force is present.

comment Replace a failed disk in a Disk Utility RAID 1
Had to do this on El Capitan, too. Coincidentally with LaCie 2big Thunderbolt (1st gen).
