The detectives Mabel, Charles, and Oliver are confronted with the unexpected and untimely death of Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd), a well-known actor, in the opening episode of “Only Murders In The Building” Season 3. Ben dies when a play’s cast and crew are practicing on stage, which causes havoc. Oliver, who was looking forward to making a comeback on Broadway, had his expectations dashed when the play’s opening night is destroyed. The main protagonists, Mabel (Selena Gomez), Charles (Steve Martin), and Oliver (Martin Short ), are intrigued by the circumstances and choose to investigate. The conflict and relationships between the characters are also explored in this episode, especially those between Oliver Putnam and Loretta Durkin (Meryl Streep).

Ben Glenroy is exposed as a narcissistic self-centered person who gained attention and admiration from his popularity as the investigation gets underway. Given Ben’s numerous critics among the cast, Mabel, Charles, and Oliver believe one of them may be the murderer. The probe reveals character tensions and interactions, particularly Ben’s tense connection with fellow cast member Loretta.

Is Ben Glenroy Really Dead?

Unexpected things happen in the midst of the pandemonium. Ben Glenroy, who was thought to be dead, unexpectedly turns up alive at the afterparty, confusing and stunning everyone, and the tale takes a shocking turn. He asserts that during his “death,” he was able to hear what people were thinking and feeling.

Later in the episode, when the trio of sleuths encounters another unnerving occurrence, the scenario takes a worse turn. They hear creaking in the elevator and find blood dripping from the ceiling. Ben’s lifeless body abruptly falls to the ground from above, proving that this time he has indeed been slain.

The details of Ben’s death are left unclear throughout the episode, leaving the characters and the viewer wondering who may have killed him and why. This unexpected event leaves the protagonists perplexed and in a state of shock, which paves the way for more inquiries and mysteries to be revealed in the season’s remaining episodes. Future episodes are anticipated to go further into the inquiry and shed light on the intricate web of motives and secrets surrounding Ben’s death since Mabel, Charles, and Oliver are determined to unravel the mystery.
