Only Murders in the Building - Open and Shut

The First Season finale of Only Murders in the Building finally solves the murder that occured in the The Arconia which brought together three strangers to make a podcast, solve a crime, and break out of their comfort zones. Believing they have uncovered evidence that points to Jan (Amy Ryan) having a relationship with Tim Kono (Julian Cihi), which makes her a prime suspect in his murder, Oliver (Martin Short) and Mabel (Selena Gomez) attempt to prove their theory to Charles (Steve Martin) who elicits his own confession from his girlfriend (but not before she successfully poisons him as well and sets out to murder everyone in the building to cover her tracks). 

The finale is memorable for some physical comedy from Martin as his character's mobility is limited after being doused by his girlfriend. We also get a bit of movement on some storylines involving both Charles and Oliver making a connection to their children. Realizing the show was coming back for another season, and choosing to set the stage, "Open and Shut" ends on a cliffhanger with a new murder where Oliver, Mabel, and Charles are arrested as prime suspects (seeing how they are found over the dead body with one of them covered in blood). Seems like there is another murder four our trio to solve.
