The third season of “Only Murders in the Building“ is here, and it does not disappoint with its abundance of mystery, drama, and unexpected twists. The identity of the killer responsible for the death of Hollywood star Ben Glenroy was eventually revealed to viewers in the most recent season finale, which was an intense and suspenseful ride. The stunning truth behind the murder that had viewers on the edge of their seats is revealed in this recap, which digs into the complex web of deceit.
Only Murders In The Building Season 3: Who Is the Killer?
The gripping “Only Murders in the Building” Season 3 finale unveiled the shocking person responsible for Ben Glenroy’s death—the charming Paul Rudd. Get ready for the bombshell reveal: Wesley Taylor‘s portrayal of Clifford “Cliff” DeMeo, a young Broadway producer involved in a diabolical plan, is the killer.
The complex story develops as Cliff’s mother and producing partner, Donna DeMeo (Linda Emond), sets the scene for the catastrophic occurrence. After reading a critical pre-performance critique of their play, “Death Rattle Dazzle,” Donna takes drastic steps to save the play. She poisons a cookie to divert attention from Ben Glenroy, the ostensible obstacle, but not to kill anyone, but rather to buy time for the faltering show.
But, things take a terrible turn the same evening of the poisoning when Cliff shoves Ben down Arconia’s elevator shaft in a furious altercation. As Ben, who is miraculously recuperating from the poisoning, threatens to call the police on Donna, the tension rises. Spurred by Ben’s disapproval of his mother’s behavior, Cliff lashes out at the actor, sending him plummeting to his death.
As Donna stands in for Ben and protects her kid from the repercussions of his behavior, the plot becomes more complicated. The second opening night of “Death Rattle Dazzle” sees a dramatic unraveling of the truth as Cliff, hung above the stage, admits to the horrific murder. Keeping viewers guessing right up until the very end, the Season 3 finale deftly moves between a number of suspects, including an infatuated fan, a bitter brother, a co-star, and a dubious documentarian.
“Only Murders in the Building” is primarily about delving into the murky world of the show industry rather than just investigating the murder. The death of Ben Glenroy comes to symbolize the ruthless spirit of Broadway, where people will stop at nothing to avoid receiving a bad review.
Ultimately, it is a story about fear and retaliation—the dread of failing in the cutthroat entertainment industry and the retaliation of a kid who refuses to lose his mother as a result of their deeds. The boundaries between fact and fiction blur as the Gooseberry Theater serves as the venue for both the revelation and the musical, leaving audiences both satisfied and in disbelief.
“Only Murders in the Building”‘s third-season finale is proof of the program’s ability to hold viewers’ attention with its deft storytelling, surprising turns, and an outstanding ensemble giving outstanding performances. The issue that still has to be answered as we say goodbye to this season is: What other mysteries lie ahead for our cherished podcasters in upcoming episodes? In this fascinating adventure of crime, comedy, and brotherhood, only time will tell.
