Only Murders in the Building has already been renewed for a 3rd season, but have we even gotten over the shock we suffered after the season finale? Only Murders in the Building Season 2 ending shed light on to several bits that was in the dark – including those from Season 1, but what really happened at the end of Only Murders in the Building Season 2? We are here to fill you in on the season finale of the Hulu series. Without much ado, let’s dive in!
What Happens at the End of Only Murders in the Building Season 2?
Only Murders in the Building Season 2 ending reveals that Becky Butler is responsible for the death of Bunny Folger and that she planted evidence on Charles, Oliver, and Mabel. In the season finale, we learn Becky’s true identity as the subject of Cinda Canning’s popular podcast All is Not OK in Oklahoma. Becky makes the decision to leave her old life behind to do something more meaningful. In fact, the only things keeping her in the town of Chickasha were the house she shared with her abusive father and the local mayor, both of whom were more than willing to leave her behind.
Becky turns to podcaster extraordinaire Cinda under the pseudonym Poppy White and informs her of the disappearance of a young woman that would later grip the entire country, though Becky herself would learn nothing of it. Later, at lunch with Charles, Oliver and Mabel, she tells them this story and warns them of Cinda’s danger.
Then the podcasting trio invites each of the suspects to Arconia to thoroughly investigate the killer. Mabel first falsely accuses Cinda and then her ex-lover Alice, who puts on quite a show pretending to be the real culprit. After Alice backs off, Cinda praises Mabel’s detective skills and tells her she’d like to make her a podcast star, which upsets Becky. She starts ranting about how little credit she has gotten for Cinda’s success, causing her facade to crumble. She also starts sneezing just like the killer did the night Lucy discovered her in the hidden hallway.
One by one, Becky’s carefully crafted lies start to fall apart and it becomes clear that everyone in the room is complicit in the plan to provoke Becky into a fit of rage. The murder weapon contained the DNA of a supposedly deceased Oklahoma resident, and Becky’s unusual order of a liverwurst and jam sandwich for lunch helped the trio solve the case. On the menu at Bunny’s favorite restaurant, it’s listed as a “#14 sandwich,” and those were also her parting words to Mabel.
Only Murders in the Building Season 2 doesn’t end as such. The season finale manages to draw our attention to a new mysterious murder. At the end of the episode, after a one-year time jump, the story shifts to the premiere of Oliver Putnam’s Broadway comeback show, featuring prominent actor Ben Glenroy (played by Ant-Man star Paul Rudd). He dies on stage under mysterious circumstances. Only Murders in the Building Season 2 ends with such a cliffhanger, leaving us eagerly awaiting Season 3. It seems that the trio will investigate Ben’s death in the upcoming season.
