Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Episode 3

Only Murders in the Building burst onto the scene back in 2021 with its maiden season. The oddball and goofy trio of Steve Martin, Selena Gomez, and Martin Short won people over. OMITB’s sassy twist on the whodunnit genre was refreshing and instantly charming. The Hulu show also imbibed America’s obsession with true crime with a satirical touch.

A very successful second season gave the show all the trappings of becoming a multi-season endeavour. And we haven’t had to wait too long for a third season, which is now here!  Our central trio is back to solve another murder, picking up the pieces from Season 2’s thrilling finale. 

Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd are big names added to this season’s roster, making the show even more high-profile than before. 

Here is everything you need to know about Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Episode 3, including the release date, time and where you can watch this show.

Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Episode 3 Release Date

Episode 3 of Only Murders in the Building’s new season three will be released on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at 12 am (PT)/3 am (ET). There were doubts about the scheduled release of the openers given the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. But thankfully for fans, the delay in the release schedule was not inordinate. And the rest of the release schedule isn’t expected to be affected either.

Episode 3 is titled “Grab Your Hankies,” referring to what comes next. This episode will clearly build off Mabel’s astute observational skills when she noticed that Gregg and Ben each had a specially tailored hankie that the latter gifted all his fellow cast members. The one missing the hankie is most probably the killer! 

How many episodes will Only Murders in the Building Season 3 have?

Only Murders in the Building Season 3 has been commissioned for a total of 10 episodes. This is in line with the first two seasons of the show. After the third episode airs, we will have another 7 episodes to come, which will be released weekly. 

What happened in Episodes 1 & 2?

Episodes 1 & 2 kicked off the new season in whirlwind fashion. Although we saw the season unfold in two timelines, the past timeline was briefly touched upon.

In the present day, stage star Ben Glenroy is dead. Also, Oliver’s dream project – a second chance at Broadway glory – vanishes in thin air.

We meet Loretta Durkin’s (Meryl Streep) whose big acting break after years of struggles and hard luck doesn’t seem to materialize into anything. Oliver and she seem to share a romantic tinge. 

To everyone’s shock, Ben makes a surprise entry at Oliver’s afterparty, indicating he had food poisoning and nothing more. As such, he isn’t dead…yet! 

Ben has taken an apartment in Arconia (Amy Schumer’s old apartment). Mabel announces that her aunt is selling the renovated apartment and she will have to move cities. As the trio dejectedly take the elevator down, Ben’s dead body cracks through the glass ceiling. Who killed him? We don’t know! 

While Mabel and Charles follow a sumptuous lead (which backfires in the end) Oliver does all he can to save his production, which includes trying to woo a theatre critic to give good reviews of the play. Unfortunately, Oliver’s stress levels are through the roof and he suffers a minor heart attack.

Charles and Mabel are kidnapped by Gregg, a psychopathic Ben Glenroy fan. But Detective Biswas and the police save the day. Mabel is convinced Gregg is not Ben’s killer and makes a pact with Charles to find out their true identity.

Meanwhile, Oliver gets a zany idea to revive his production as a Broadway musical – Death Rattle Dazzle
