Only Murders in the Building - The Show Must...

As was teased in last season's epilogue, the show's Third Season opens up with a murder. Well, technically it opens up with two murders, of the same victim (Paul Rudd). The first takes place on stage during the Broadway premiere of Oliver's (Martin Short) comeback. We get some conversations among our trio about the sudden death, and an awkward afterparty turned wake, but the majority of the episode begins to fill in events between the solving of the last murder and opening night through a series of flashbacks. Oh, and then the victim shows up after being miraculously resurrected at the hospital only to be killed again that night (this time in the building). You know what that means, podcast listeners!

The opener twists and teases us before getting to the true scene of the murder. What we know from the party is the character may have been a top celebrity but it doesn't appear that he was liked by anyone on the production including Charles (Steve Martin) and an actress (Meryl Streep) making her Broadway debut after years of never getting the role. The episode also teases us with the fact that Mabel (Selena Gomez) is leaving the Arconia, suggesting the murder will need to be solved in short order (and could possibly be the podcasters' finale).
