Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Episode 8

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. They have not featured regularly this far, which is disappointing. However, the creatives have chosen a new approach for the season, which has mostly worked quite well. The season is at a tipping point in terms of the plot. With that being said…

Here is everything you need to know about Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Episode 8, including the release date, time and where you can watch this show!

How Many Episodes Will Only Murders in the Building Season 3 have?

What Happened In Episode 7?

Episode 7 of Only Murders in the Building picks up in the aftermath of the falling out between our protagonist trio. “To each his own,” they say. And that is certainly not true in the case of these Arconia residents. Charles is replaced by the legendary Matthew Broderick in Oliver’s play. Cliff’s surprising friendship with the actor sways him to become a part of it.

Mabel is finishing packing up. Theo Dumas is helping her vacate the apartment. He tells her about the silent auction Ben’s brother Dickie is holding for his things upstairs. She quickly becomes interested and they pay Dickie a visit. It is revealed that Dickie was always in Ben’s shadow – as a kid and as an adult. Mabel later discovers that it was Dickie who came up with the idea of CoBro but Ben stole it and made millions out of it. She also realizes that Ben’s time of death, which the police declared as 12:06 AM, is actually incorrect.

The police looked at his watch to determine it but Ben always used to set his watch 20 minutes early so as not to be late to work. Since Gregg was seen exiting the Arconia at 12:06 AM and Ben died at 12:26 by that logic, he cannot be the killer.

Broderick drives Oliver crazy with his over-involvement in the play. Meanwhile, Charles forms an unfamiliar acquaintance with Uma, Bunny’s acerbic best friend, which does not last for long. We also learn that Uma is a kleptomaniac and stole Ben’s hanky. But she isn’t the murderer.

Charles and Oliver make up after the latter fires Broderick. They plan to offer Loretta’s book to Mabel as a peace offering but she has already vacated the apartment and released an episode of the podcast on her own. Does this mark an end to the iconic partnership?
