Only Murders in the Building Season 2 Episode 9 Preview

Whodunit on episode 9 of Only Murders in the Building? Let CableTV.com recap the odds.

Now we’re getting somewhere. In last week’s episode, we finally learned the identity of Glitter Guy—it’s Detective Kreps (Michael Rapaport)! He’s trying to throw a wrench into the gang’s investigation, but is he the only one?

For episode 9 of Only Murders in the Building, let’s pull up a jumbo-sized edition of the CableTV.com Only Murders Suspicion Power Rankings and see who’s worthy of another look. As always, we’re ranking characters from most to least suspicious using two questions:

  1. Do we think they killed Bunny Folger?
  2. Did they have something to do with the murder?

How can I watch Only Murders in the Building?

1. Detective Kreps/Glitter Guy

Our first big reveal for the season’s endgame is a doozy, as Detective Kreps is revealed to be the dreaded Glitter Guy and the person who texted the gang the night of Bunny’s murder.

It’s not hard to piece together his motive against the trio—his department whiffed on the Tim Kono case, and he wants a win by framing them for Bunny’s murder.

But we think Oliver’s theory about Glitter Guy and the killer being different people is dead on. Kreps moonlighting as a murderer seems like a stretch, but if he simply has to send a few texts en route to “solving” a big case, that seems like an easier thing to ask for. But who’s doing the asking?

2. Teddy Dimas

Teddy’s alibi is seemingly airtight, as he and Theo were likely in police custody at the time of Bunny’s murder. But given that his motive (REVENGE!) is clear enough to be seen from orbit? We’ll keep him on the board until the show tells us otherwise.

3. Cinda Canning

Cinda’s (Tina Fey) motive aligns exactly with Kreps—her podcast got beat to the punch by the Only Murders crew, and she wants payback. But even considering Poppy’s note that Cinda “knows where the bodies are buried,” we’d still slot her in as “involved but not the killer.”

4. Jonathan

During Jonathan (Jason Veasey) and Howard’s lovely blackout date, the show takes its sweet time pointing out Jonathan’s sneezing fit. . . just like the killer did in the Arcatacombs! But considering we had to turn on the closed captions to confirm Jonathan’s name, we’d call this hint the reddest of red herrings.

Others receiving suspicious votes

  • Poppy (assistant with a grudge)
  • Ivan (no clear motive, but Bunny’s closest non-Arconia relationship—maybe we’ll learn more later)

Off-the-board suspects

  • Alice (not a murderer, just works in contemporary art)
  • Amy Schumer (officially another Sting-esque nothingburger)
  • Marv (we called the tunnels thing! But ignore everything else we got wrong)
  • Nina (a lot as a person, but not a murderer)
