Only Murders In The Building Season 2: What to expect in the finale episode?
Only Murders in the Building Season 2 Episode 10, I Know Who Did It, is set to premiere on August 23, 2022, Tuesday, at midnight PT / 3 a.m. ET. All the episodes of the first season are already available on Hulu and Dinsey+ to stream. The episode is reported to be directed by Jamie Babbit and written by John Hoffman, Matteo Borghese & Rob Turbovsky.
The runtime of the episode is approximately 26–35 minutes. In the final episode, the viewers can expect to see Becky Butler remembers her previous horrible existence in Oklahoma when she experienced being reprimanded by her father and being sexually assaulted while serving as the mayor of Chikasha’s secretary.
She went by Poppy White and applied for a job with Cinda after deciding to vanish and flee. Poppy killed Bunny, not Cinda, as Mabel was able to determine from the DNA analysis of the murder weapon that Bunny’s last words were the “14 Sandwich,” which Poppy frequently orders.
The group then planned a murderer reveal party where Alice and Cinda were included. When Poppy/Becky eventually admits to the murder, she and her lover, Kreps, are both taken into custody. Oliver is given the opportunity to direct a play in a year, but on the night of the performance, Ben Glenroy, a well-known theatre performer, unexpectedly passes away while on stage.
