Only Murders in the Building has done it yet again! They’ve reached the end of their third murder investigation. From talented guest stars to career-defining performances from the main cast, the triad at the heart of the mystery series sleuthed their way to the solution in fascinating fashion. 

As with the previous seasons of the show, each episode seems to hint at a potential new suspect in the case, meaning it can be a little tiring to understand the small details of the crime when the end of the road arrives. We’ve got you covered! By the time the curtain closes on “Opening Night,” you’ll not only know who pushed Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd) down the elevator shaft, but you might also discover other intimate details in the lives of our beloved podcasters!

Who Killed Ben Glenroy?

Cliff DeMeo (Wesley Taylor) shoved Ben Glenroy to his death after an argument with the conceited actor in the hallway by the elevator shaft. Cliff’s mother, Donna (Linda Emond), poisoned Ben on the night of the play’s opening act after hearing Maxine’s (Noma Dumezweni) harsh review of the production. Maxine is supposedly an esteemed critic in the world of Broadway, and her aspersions were especially casted towards Ben. Not wanting her son to fail in his first ever Broadway producing effort, she supplied rat poison inside of a cookie. Ben has a history of eating disorders at the worst, and a poor relationship with sugar at his most innocuous. Donna didn’t plan on killing Ben, just knocking him out of the play.
