Only Murders in the Building

Overview: Three occupants of the The Arconia, an apartment building in New York, come together to get to solve the death of another occupant, Tim Kono. Brought together by their common interest in a true crime podcast, Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short), and Mabel (Selena Gomez) set out to start one themselves
Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (Martin Short), and Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez)

The show title comes in a moment where the one character says maybe they should do a second podcast and the other says, no no, only murders in the building.
The ending reveals she knew the victim... but the victim didnt show any sign of knowing her... did he not recognize her? How many years had passed for this to be the case? I feel as if people's faces dont really change much from what seemed like teenagers to late twenties early 30s.

Oliver, Mabel, and Charles digging through the trash looking for evidence

Hmm this second episode with the party was confusing. Implied at the end there was a murder.
But yeah what is with all the jewelry in the books.
This episode explains the reason Mabel and Tim pretended not to know each other.

Mabel investigates

This third episode was mostly humorous.
I guess the one kid was blamed when Tim saw it was someone else. That someone else could be the serial killer. Though given the ending. How would such a person be so aware of the release of a podcast.

Charles meets Jan (Amy Ryan), a bassoonist

Episode 5 closes some plot points. Such as tie dye guy. And what all the jewelry might be about.
Technically Oscar can be lying but it would seem unlikely for the murderer to be him.

Mabel ready to stab someone who's been following her

Interesting. So there's a cover-up involved.
That's quite a plot twist with "Angel."
She told them about the phone, but I feel the part about the jewel is technically more important. Technically her omission of that can me more just what's interesting to the viewers than her actively omitting the information. Maybe both.

Theo Dimas (James Caverly), Teddy's son

Hehe. He breaks the fourth wall. "People talk way too fucking much in this city."
Interesting. So they're on the right track...
Oh wow... so that's the story behind the ring.
When they went into the basement, that's when I realized the episode was essentially a silent episode
Well to be fair. It did appear to be an accident.

Brazzos. Safe word.
The way they're spinning it, maybe Jan is right after all

Fans of the podcast

haha. His stunt double, Saz Pataki (Jane Lynch), is a woman; much to the surprise of Jan
Hahaha. "What is this Face/Off"
Does getting Tarintino'd mean dying.
hehe. "I hated Tim Kono, but off, that man knew what he was doing."
Hmm. A bassoon cleaner... I feel like it still wouldn't make sense, if it was Jan, did she bring it over to use as a sex toy? I suppose in the other episode, that they had a safe word, it would suggest she's on the kinkier side.
