Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Episode 7 Recap

Uma Heller, one of Arconia’s oldest residents, provides narration at the beginning of each episode of “CoBro.” As the plot develops, this characteristic—her fascination with collecting other people’s possessions—becomes crucial. Uma unintentionally took Ben’s handkerchief from the elevator crime scene, which started off a series of happenings that would affect our group of amateur detectives.

The once-solid investigative team is now experiencing a friendship breakdown. Mabel, played by Selena Gomez, starts to feel that she has outgrown her friends, Charles and Oliver, while Oliver, excellently performed by Martin Short, is absorbed by his unyielding dedication to his musical endeavor.

The trio sets out on separate journeys with new companions, and Dickie, the brother of Ben, becomes the newest suspect in the murder investigation. In the penthouse of the Arconia, Dickie (played by Jeremy Shamos) is holding an auction of Ben’s CoBro possessions. As a result, Mabel and Dickie engage in a heated exchange that exposes their underlying resentment and jealousy.

Oliver tries to recast Charles’ part in his musical as the episode progresses, but he encounters a string of unsuccessful auditions. The musical’s fictionalized version of Broadway star Matthew Broderick is first introduced thanks to a surprise favor from producer Cliff. This casting decision creates the framework for amusing dynamics and character growth.

The story becomes more complicated as Charles looks desperately to rebuild his broken connection with Oliver and comes upon a crucial piece of information: Ben’s handkerchief, which Uma had acquired. Regrettably, Charles’ efforts to find the handkerchief result in a shocking discovery. The purchase of the handkerchief is revealed to be made by Dickie, Ben’s brother, adding to the complexity of his persona and potential motivations.

Ben’s watch is visible in a crime scene photo that Mabel discovers while organizing her stuff, which changes the course of events. This information shows that Ben’s death occurred later than originally thought, which calls into question the primary suspect, Gregg.

Mabel, Theo, and Tobert get ready to record their first podcast with the growing body of data. As more information becomes available, Dickie is being painted as a compelling lead suspect who is motivated by resentment and jealousy over his brother’s success and suspected idea theft.

Back at Oliver’s apartment, Matthew Broderick’s obsessive focus on the part puts Oliver to the test, which results in a startling turn of events that, in the end, helps to reconcile a damaged friendship.
