Only Murders in the Building Episode 9 is going to be a total game-changer. As Jan quoted Charles’ character Brazzos’ once-famous dialogue, “This sends the investigation in a whole new direction.” The identity of the murderer of Tim Kono was almost revealed in Only Murders in the Building Episode 7, along with the motive.

Too good to be true, right? Now that the trio’s last podcast is out, arrests have been made, and it turns out that the murderer is still in the building, ready to commit even more murders. It is quite a shocking revelation. Read on for more spoilers on Only Murders in the Building Episode 9.

What To Expect From Only Murders in the Building Episode 9?

Only Murders in the Building Episode 9 has been titled “Double Time.” There is supposedly a third murder in the building, and it has got to have links with Tim Kono’s murder.

Jan had absolutely nothing to do with all this until recently when she got involved with Charles and the case. She almost tried to be a part of the team, her enthusiasm oozing until Oliver showed her the door. Now the poor soul is supposedly dead, and the question is “Whodunit?.”

One thing is almost for sure that the murderer or an accomplice was present in the room where the team was recreating the scene of Tim’s murder. There is a possibility that the killer had access to the keys to Jan’s apartment because her apartment door was open when Charles later entered.

Or the killer could be an acquaintance who just rang the bell and, when Jan opened the door, tried to murder her in cold blood and left. Some more revelations are expected in Only Murders in the Building Episode 9.

The residents of Arconia are very annoyed at the trio of Mabel, Oliver, and Charles for the bad publicity that their podcast has brought to the building.

They are going to register their protest in Only Murders in the Building Episode 9. Also, an old colleague meeting Charles in Only Murders in the Building Episode 9 could reveal some dark secrets.

Only Murders in the Building Episode 8 “Fan Fiction” Recap

Only Murders in the Building Episode 8 has been titled “Fan Fiction.” Only Murders in the Building Episode 8 begins with eager fans of the trio’s podcast camping outside Arconia, agitated at the fact that a new episode of the podcast has not been released for a week. It goes to show how popular a show has become. Sam, one of the fans, doubles as a narrator as well.

Elsewhere, Oliver and Mabel are shown tied up at the back of Theo’s van. Oliver mentions smelling formaldehyde that was being used to preserve the corpses at the back of the van. Theo brings them to a junkyard where Teddy is waiting for them. Teddy unties the duo and gives them a lift back to Arconia.

On the way, he makes it very clear that they are to release the last episode of their podcast the next morning, stating that Tim Kono had committed suicide. Otherwise, he warns that he knows where they live. Teddy also reminds them how generous he has been with them.

At the entrance of Arconia, Mabel and Oliver find the fans of their podcast camping there. Realizing the popularity of their podcast gives Oliver a new high. The duo goes to Charles’ apartment and finds Jan there. They explain everything to Charles, and it turns out that Charles, too, has some revelations to make.

Revelations in Only Murders in the Building Episode 8

Charles has gathered enough evidence from Tim’s phone that could implicate the Dimas’. Now it is for sure that Tim repented the fact that Oscar had to go to prison because of his silence, which is why Tim was meticulously and silently collecting evidence against the Dimas’. Tim also made it clear through his phone that it was Theo, whom he had seen with Zoe that fateful night when Zoe died.

Now, the trio decides that they have to let the truth out. Mabel, Charles, and Oliver also share this information with Detective Williams. Charles, Oliver, and Mabel try to recreate the moment of Tim’s murder.

Oliver brings in their fans also to get their insight and asks them to play the characters of Tim, Theo, and the doorman. There were three of the fans as one had left for piano class. Oscar, too, joins them with a new revelation that Tim had bought the ring Zoe was wearing that fateful night.

Jan, too, seems to think of herself as a part of the team, and in an almost child-like enthusiasm, keeps giving her inputs. Oliver seems to resent her interference, tells that to her face, and even asks her to leave. Jan returns to her apartment and finds a note stating ” I am watching you “ at her door.

The team releases the last episode of their podcast, much to the annoyance of Teddy. With all the evidence in place, the cops lose no time in arresting Teddy and Theo. Mabel shows Tim’s recording to Oscar, where Tim is seen feeling sorry for his silence and apologizing to Oscar.

Only Murders in the Building Episode 8 Ending Explained-Cause of Tim’s Death Revealed

At the end of Only Murders in the Building Episode 8, the shocker comes in the form of Tim’s toxicology report, and a ring camera pointed at the courtyard of Arconia. Just as Detective Williams was talking to Oliver and celebrating their victory, Tim Kono’s toxicology report arrives at Detective Williams’ laptop.

The report states that Tim had died of acute secobarbital poisoning even before he died of the gunshot. Another revelation comes out in the form of a shot taken by a ring camera pointed at the courtyard of Arconia, which shows that Teddy and Theo were out in the courtyard even before the fire alarm had started. It goes on to prove that the Dimas’ had not killed Tim, and the murderer is still at large.

Charles is distraught because Jan had left in a huff and is not replying to his messages. He goes to her apartment with flowers to apologize to her, where he finds Jan lying on the floor, covered in a pool of blood.

And to think of it, some of us were suspecting Jan to be the killer as she was continuously trying to divert the team’s attention from the Dimas’ to Howard. It goes without saying that in a murder mystery, there is always more than what meets the eyes.
