Only murders in the building Season 1 recap: Who killed Tim Kono and a shocking new murder mystery
Residents of the New York building Arconia, Charles Haden-Savage (Martin), Oliver Putnam (Short) and Mabel Mora Gomez), have come together to launch the eponymous true-crime podcast. The success of their podcast helped them solve the murder of fellow Arconia resident, Tim Kono.
Towards the end of the season, the trio learned that Kono was poisoned and that it was Charles’ love interest Jan who was the murderer. Jan and Tim were revealed to be a couple. After being dumped by Tim, Jan decided to poison him. She also planned to poison Charles and blow up Arconia to prevent the podcast from revealing her as the assassin. However, the trio stopped her in time.
While celebrating Jan’s capture, Charles and Oliver received an anonymous text message asking them to leave the building immediately. When they went to look for Mabel, they found her covered in blood, bent over the corpse of Arconia’s owner, Bunny. Their arrest led rival podcaster Cinda Canning (Tina Fey) to come up with her own show, titled Only murderers in the building.
