Only Murders in the Building - Double Time

The penultimate episode of the First Season of Only Murders in the Building offers a few surprises as the podcasters face backlash from the neighbors, possible eviction, and Charles (Steve Martin) announcing plans to leave the podcast and spend time with his healing, but not surprisingly not dead, girlfriend (Amy Ryan). While they were able to solve one murder, the trio still hasn't solved the case that brought them all together.

The episode leaves the series' biggest twist for the final moment as Oliver (Martin Short) and Mabel (Selena Gomez) find something quite unexpected while going through Tim Kono's (Julian Cihi) things pointing the investigation an an entirely new direction which Charles is likely ill-prepared for. "Double Time" is also notable for the introduction of Jane Lynch as Charles' quirky old stunt double whose appearance brings back insecurities from the past and whose advice leads him to make a discovery of his own. Now, bring on the finale.
