A Recap of Only Murders In The Building Season 2 Episode 1
Only Murders In The Building Season 2 Episode 1 has been titled ‘Persons of Interest’.
At the beginning of Only Murders In The Building Season 2, Episode 1, we find that Charles, Mabel and Oliver are arrested on charges of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger’s murder and are being questioned by the cops.
After the questioning, Detective Williams informs them that they could not press charges against the trio due to a lack of substantial evidence.
However, they are not above suspicion but are the Persons of Interest instead.
Williams warns them to stay out of trouble and stay away from the murder investigation.
Oliver suggests that they come out with the second season of their podcast, to which Mabel says that they have to live a boring life from now on to stay out of further trouble.
Oliver replies that he’d rather be dead than boring. He loves all the media attention that they are receiving.
Mabel returns to her aunt’s apartment and tearfully scrubs the floor of Bunny’s blood stains. People start trolling her on social media and calling her Bloody Mabel.
She receives a call from Alice Banks, played by Cara Delevingne, from the third arm gallery. Alice says she loved Mabel’s murals and wants to meet her.
Elsewhere, Oliver meets the stand-up comedian Amy Schumer in the elevator, shifting to Sting’s apartment. Amy offers him that they sell the rights of their podcast to her, and she turns it into a streaming series.
Meanwhile, Charles is thrilled to hear about Brazzo’s reboot. He, however, is informed that Naomi Jackson will play Brazzo, and Charles will play Uncle Brazzo.
The famous true crime podcaster Cinda Canning comes up with a new podcast on the Bunny murder case. Unfortunately, the trio finds her half-baked efforts to be disgusting.

Mabel tells Charles and Oliver that Bunny had said ‘fourteen’ before dying. Oliver suggests that they sneak into Bunny’s apartment and look for clues.
The trio agrees and gets into Bunny’s apartment through the vent, where Bunny’s pet parrot Gambolini keeps hurling abuses at them.
While looking for clues, they find that Uma and Howard have entered the apartment. Uma is talking about a priceless painting in Bunny’s bedroom. The trio hide in Bunny’s closet.
Uma and Howard find that the painting has been stolen from there. Charles says that whoever has the painting is the murderer.
Mabel discovers a secret elevator inside the closet and climbs in it. They find that the elevator takes them straight out of the Building. Mabel now agrees that they do the podcast, and they start recording.
Oliver is going through the clues they collected from Bunny’s apartment. He finds a card with “Bunny Folger, I want that painting “written on it. Oliver and Mabel go to Charles’s apartment and see the painting hanging on his apartment wall.
Charles pleads ignorance and says someone has planted the painting to frame him.
Mabel says that the model of the painting bears a resemblance to Charles, to which Charles says that the model of the painting is his father!
