Only Murders in the Building Season 2 Episode 7 Preview

Whodunit on Only Murders in the Building this season? CableTV.com breaks down the odds.

Let’s call Mabel “MabeLLL” after the number of l’s she racked up last week’s episode: Cinda Canning (Tina Fey) released an episode about a coworker who accused her of cutting his finger off; she walked into Alice (Cara Delevingne) recreating the Bunny murder scene; and she stabbed a glitter-bombed person on the subway.

For this week’s episode of Only Murders in the Building, let’s update the CableTV.com Only Murders Suspicion Power Rankings and see who’s worthy of a raised eyebrow. As always, we’re ranking characters from most to least suspicious by 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. Teddy Dimas

Teddy sat this episode out, but he still sits on the top of our power rankings for reasons motive-related (affair, revenge) and plot-related (not a whole lot of other suspects . . . yet?).

2. Cinda Canning

This episode brought Cinda Canning into the forefront as a suspect—when Tina Fey’s on your show’s roster, you don’t leave her on the bench, folks—but we call red herring on her for several reasons.

She’s a super-famous podcaster who’s suddenly willing to orchestrate a murder? Plus, after sitting out the bulk of the season, she’s supposed to be our next likely suspect? We say, nah.

3. Poppy

Poppy (Adina Verson) on the other hand? The timeline doesn’t line up yet. But what about a beleaguered assistant who finally loses it and goes rogue? There’s nothing concrete yet here, but let’s pin her to the conspiracy corkboard for now.

Others receiving suspicious votes

  • Ivan (no clear motive, but Bunny’s closest non-Arconia relationship—maybe we’ll learn more later?)
  • Amy Schumer (big guest star)
  • Marv (knew about the Arconia tunnels)
  • Theo Dimas (suspicious by Teddy proxy)

Off-the-board suspects

  • Alice (not a murderous lunatic, just works in contemporary art)
