Only Murders in the Building Episode 4 is going to be released this Tuesday. Following the release of the first three episodes last week, the series has already grabbed a lot of attention with its suspense and mystery, with the touch of comedy making it different from shows of its genre.

In the first three episodes, viewers have seen Mabel, Charles, and Oliver investigating the murder of their neighbor, Tim. With the trio not being able to find a primary suspect and Oliver finding a note related to the murder, the stakes are high, and the mystery keeps rising.

Only Murders in the Building Episode 4 Release Date and Streaming Details

Only Murders in the Building Episode 4 will be released on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, at 12 AM Eastern Time (E.T.). The series is only available on Hulu for now.

This season would contain ten episodes of a duration of half an hour each. New episodes of the show are being released every Tuesday. The first three episodes were released on the streaming platform on August 31, 2021. The series will also be released on Disney+ but will follow a different release pattern.

What to Expect From Only Murders in the Building Episode 4?

Only Murders in the Building Episode 4 has been titled “The Sting.” The title suggests that the trio would try to figure out the musician Sting’s connection to Tom’s killing.

Sting may be having a past grudge against Tim, who was fired from his investment banking firm for losing an enormous amount of a client’s money. Sting might be revealed to be that client in Only Murders in the Building Episode 4. Mabel, Charles, and Oliver might also face some difficulties during the investigation.

In Only Murders in the Building Episode 4, viewers are likely to find the significance of the note that Mabel found at Tim’s apartment and might get to know who Tim was supposed to meet at “G.M..” Also, his death might be related to the death of his childhood friend, Zoe.

Despite knowing the truth behind Zoe’s death, Tim had kept silent. As a result, their friend, Oscar, was arrested and jailed for this crime. Oscar, who has come out of jail, might be having some role in the current happenings, which may be revealed in Only Murders in the Building Episode 4.

Oliver receiving the warning note also suggests that the murderer knows all about their investigation. The dark side of the trio might also spill out in Only Murders in the Building Episode 4.

Why didn’t Mabel acknowledge the fact that Tim was her childhood friend, why had Charles’ partner, Lucy, left him, and to what lengths could Oliver go in his desperate attempts to make his podcast a hit?

Later on, a realization dawns on Oliver that the day Tin had died, a cat named Evelyn, who belongs to another resident, Howard, had also died.

Tim had once warned Howard that if the cat bothered him again, he would kill her. So, Oliver suspects that Tim might have killed Evelyn, and Howard had a motive to kill Tim as an act of revenge.

However, on further investigation, he and Mabel find that Howard is a very soft-hearted person who can’t stand the sight of blood. So they strike his name out of their suspect list.

Oliver later meets his producer friend, Teddy, to try to convince him to sponsor his podcast, to which Teddy instructs him to release the first episode of his podcast early.

The trio feels that the first episode would not have any substance without the existence of a prime suspect as none of the suspects from their lists fits the bill of a prime suspect.

A breakthrough arrives at the end of Only Murders in the Building Episode 3 in the form of a note that Oliver finds at his door. The note wants him to end making the podcast, and the killer even tries to poison his pet dog Winnie, who luckily survives. It makes Oliver suspect Sting, who is a famous musician and hates dogs.

Another breakthrough happens when Mabel finds a note at Tim’s apartment, asking to reach a place called “G.M.” on Shore Road on January 31, at 4:30 PM.

Also, Mabel suddenly remembers that at the time of the fire alarm ringing when the whole building was being evacuated, she had seen a man wearing a hoodie running up the building. As Tim was killed around this time only, this hooded man could be the murderer.

Only Murders in the Building is a murder mystery series with a touch of comedy, created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman. The series follows three complete strangers living in the same apartment building named Arconia.

The three strangers are Charles-Haden Savage (played by Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (played by Martin Short), and Mabel Mora (played by Selena Gomez).

Charles is a former actor, Oliver is a struggling broadway director, and Mabel is presently staying in the building to help her aunt renovate her apartment.

A bond is created between the three when they discover that they share their love for crime podcasts. When Tim Kono, a resident of their building, is killed and the police declare it a suicide, the trio decides to launch an investigation in this matter.
