ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING is taking us on a journey into Mabel’s (Selena Gomez) past when her dad was still alive. Puzzle pieces were and still are the key to solving this mystery. It is time to flip them over, or no one “will see the full picture.”

I loved the interaction and “dialogue” between Mabel and Theo (James Caverly). It helped showcase both their true colors and flawed, troubled childhood. Coney Island, whack-a-mole, and glitter man are part of this quirky picture we still can’t quite see clearly. 

In many ways, this episode was another filler. Yes, we learned valuable info and gained insight. It was necessary, but now the countdown begins to the finale. Bring it on. I am so ready to place that final piece. I will even start practicing “CHORUS LINE” with my grandson in anticipation. Oh, what singing “chops” the Detective (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) has been hiding. She is “one singular sensation,” for sure. I love the nuances of OMITB! I am a fan forever. 

ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING is available to stream on HULU.
