The fan theories are operating amok. Everybody has their very own opinion on who this season’s killer is. And I am about so as to add extra gas to Solely Murders within the Constructing’s hearth and declare that Tobert (Jesse Williams) is the suspect to whom we must always all be paying extra consideration. 

Now you would possibly ask: how may Tobert, a dashing documentarian, Mabel’s (Selena Gomez) new beau, and lover of child elephants, be this season’s killer? Nicely, the clue is within the handwriting. The newest jaw-dropping piece of proof our trio of detectives have stumbled upon is the phrase “Fucking Pig” written out on Ben’s (Paul Rudd) dressing room mirror with lipstick. Naturally, Mabel, Oliver (Martin Brief), and Charles (Steve Martin), are hellbent on discovering out who wrote it. 

What do we all know to this point?

We all know that the lipstick used belonged to Pleasure (Andrea Martin), Charles’ former make-up artist and now ex-girlfriend. We additionally know that Ben and Loretta (Meryl Streep) bought right into a heated argument on opening night time, which prompted Charles to step in and punch Ben within the face. The one cause Pleasure was in Ben’s dressing room to start with, was to cowl up the crimson mark Ben bought from that punch. This order of occasions guidelines out Pleasure as a suspect. Though it could have been her lipstick, she wasn’t truly the one who used it to scribble on the mirror.


The Paul Rudd Easter egg you may need missed in ‘Solely Murders within the Constructing’

With the lipstick being inadequate proof, the trio turns to the handwriting on the mirror. When Mabel finds a sign-in sheet in Ok.T.’s (Allison Guinn) workplace, she realizes the gang’s simply acquired handwriting samples from the whole forged of Demise Rattle Dazzle. They’ll use these samples to match to the writing on the mirror. However an alarmed Oliver, who’s prioritizing his play’s success — and his emotions for Loretta — over the case, destroys the proof by smearing the writing on the mirror — and leaving the sign-in sheet in Ben’s dressing room.

You would possibly assume that episode 6 of Solely Murders within the Constructing ended with our trio falling aside and discovering themselves caught again at one. However a small scene in final week’s episode hints that they could nonetheless have a giant clue to catch their killer.

How does Tobert play into all of this?

On the finish of episode 5, Mabel brings Tobert again to her place and reveals him her homicide board. When Tobert reaches out for a cue card to put in writing the identify of a brand new suspect, Ben’s non-public physician, Mabel says, “I am apprehensive about your handwriting.” What she means is she worries her companions in crime-solving shall be aggravated at seeing another person has touched their valuable board. However possibly there’s a greater trigger for concern right here. Regardless of Mabel’s reluctance, Tobert nonetheless finally ends up writing the suspect’s identify on a cue card.

Why is that this vital? Nicely, Mabel could have discovered a pattern of all of the forged and crew’s handwriting, however she hasn’t realized {that a} lacking pattern of somebody’s handwriting is staring her proper within the face at her dwelling.

The truth that Mabel talked about Tobert’s handwriting in episode 5, just for it to be the largest tangent in episode 6, is all too uncanny on the earth of Solely Murders within the Constructing.


The cookies in ‘Solely Murders within the Constructing’ are a candy Broadway Easter egg

I do know Oliver erased the proof, however I am hoping Mabel has a photographic reminiscence if not an precise photograph of the mirror to see the handwriting dilemma by way of. If she does not, it nonetheless is extremely unusual, or fastidiously plotted, for Solely Murders within the Constructing to make some extent to say Tobert’s handwriting proper earlier than a complete episode devoted to handwriting. Plus, as we have seen from the final two seasons, the killers in Solely Murders within the Constructing are at all times carefully tied to the primary trio, and in some instances, even helps them with investigating the case. 

Contemplating how keen Tobert’s been to hitch Mabel in fixing Ben’s homicide, I am unable to assist however really feel suspicious in the direction of his precise intentions. In any case, what higher manner for a killer to flee being caught than becoming a member of these after him? Each step of the best way, he’d have the potential to throw them off his tracks — like losing Mabel’s time with a date disguised as a stakeout AND convincing her Ben’s physician could be a suspect. I see what you are doing Tobert. 

In Oliver’s personal clever phrases, feminine killers are overdone. The killers within the final two seasons of Solely Murders within the Constructing had been each ladies. So possibly the present is lastly switching it up. Robert with a T, we’re onto you. 

Learn how to watch: Season 3 of Solely Murders within the Constructing is now streaming on Hulu.
