Disclaimer: Serious spoilers ahead, please don’t read if you haven’t seen the final episode of Only Murders In The Building Season 2! This is my official Only Murders In The Building Season 2 Review so don’t read if you want to avoid spoilers for season 2.
First of all, OH MY GOD!
Since I wrote about my thoughts on season 2 and what I thought the finale would be, I thought I would also write a full season 2 of Only Murders In The Building review.
That finale really made up for some of the more slower (*cough boring cough*) episodes. If I’m being honest I loved this season but it didn’t hit the same as season 1. Some of the episodes were harder to get through then others. I did like the last few episodes since they moved much faster.
On Tuesday, my family and I sat down to watch the much anticipated final episode of season two and to be honest I genuinely thought Alice had something to do with the murder. I still think she’s murderous if I’m being fully honest lol.
I did not think it was Cinda. Honestly, I really found it hard to believe she had murdered Bunny for multiple reasons. First, she’s a pretty petite person and the murderer looked pretty tall. Nothing like Cinda. The killer was also skinnier so it wouldn’t have been Detective Kreps. That’s part of the reason I thought it was Alice- she’s skinny and tall.
However, I didn’t really think it was Poppy until she ordered that gross sounding sandwich and it felt like they were emphasising it so they could come back to it later in the episode. I’ve seen enough murder mysteries to know when that’s happening.
I loved the whole part where they were at Bunny’s apartment. I think that was one of my favourite parts of the show this season. It was really well written and acted out. I was honestly at the edge of my seat the entire time because I had no idea what would happen next!
Plot Holes On Only Murders In The Building Season 2
BUT, as much as I liked the final episode I did find some plot holes in it. The first and biggest one was the knife. If Becky was the mastermind behind the murder and had planted the knife in Savage’s apartment why would it have her fingerprint on it? Are you telling me she’s dumb enough to not wear gloves or to not wipe it off before leaving it at Savage’s apartment? That made no sense to me. Another one was that she would probably have known Alice was pretending because she knew Alice wasn’t the murderer so why would Alice act guilty when she wasn’t. She should have figured out their plot. And how did she get the painting in Savage’s house? Those were the biggest loopholes for me. What do you guys think?
I was, however, quite excited by the ending and the new murder. Also, woohoo Paul Rudd!!
I’m glad they decided to go in a different direction with the murder this time because it would be weird if there was yet another murder in the building lol. I have high hopes for season 3 and I am going to be optimistic for a change and say that it may turn out to be the best season yet. Because, I mean…Paul Rudd!!
By the way, it was confirmed that the show has been renewed for another season, so season three is definitely happening. I will most likely be released in summer next year. Yay!
