The Ending of Only Murders in the Building Season 2 … – Town & Country

We know who killed Bunny—but who killed [spoiler]?
Spoilers ahead for the finale of Only Murders in the Building season two. If you haven’t watched, turn back now!

second season of Only Murders in the Building ended by revealing that Bunny’s killer was Cinda Canning’s assistant, Poppy White—whose real name is actually Becky Butler. Cinda, you may recall, supposedly solved the murder of Becky Butler in her podcast "All Is Not OK in Oklahoma"—but Becky was never dead to begin with.
As it turns out, Detective Kreps, who was already revealed to be Glitter Guy, didn’t fall in love with Cinda—he fell in love with Poppy. The pair schemed to pull off Bunny’s murder, so Poppy could get her own podcast and Kreps could solve a big case.
"You deserve this," Kreps tells Poppy in a flashback. "We both do. You get to be famous, I get a promotion. We get to move out of this sweaty shitbox. You got this."
It’s also revealed that Poppy didn’t try to frame Mabel, Charles, and Oliver for the murder; the night she killed Bunny, she texted the three of them to get out of the building, but despite the message, Mabel went back to her apartment.
In the final episode, the trio discovers that the murder weapon had Poppy’s DNA on it with the help of Detective Williams. Mabel also realizes Bunny’s last words, "14 Savage" were actually "14 sandwich," referencing Poppy’s strange deli order.

Poppy breaks after Cinda compliments Mabel for solving the case, when she (falsely) accuses Alice of being the killer. Cinda tells Mabel, "You are one hell of an investigator. I could use someone like you on my staff. Hell, I think you could have your own podcast!" Poppy, of course, desperately wants Cinda’s approval.
"I just wanted to make a good podcast," she says, once she realizes everyone knows she killed Bunny. "I just wanted Cinda to notice me."
Poppy is arrested and the trio seems to go back to "normal" lives. Until, the show flashes forward one year, to the premiere of Oliver’s new Broadway show starring Charles and actor Ben Glenroy, played by Paul Rudd.
On opening night, Ben seems to be distressed, telling Oliver, "I’m good. I’m gonna rock this place. It’s the other guy you need to talk to, fuckbag." Oliver then suggests Ben use his anger to help his performance. Ben responds, "Okay, so, then I can kill him. Because I just might, Oliver, I’m warning you."
As places gets called, Ben coughs a little, and Charles walks on stage to speak with him; viewers quickly realize the person Ben was complaining about is none other than Charles-Haden Savage. Soon, Ben calls Charles a "piece of shit," and Charles leans in close to threaten Ben, "Be smart. Stay away from her."
As the opening curtain rises, Ben starts to deliver his first line, but he begins struggling to breathe, and falls to the stage, dead. Oliver and Mabel are in the audience, looking on in horror. The last words of the season are Mabel, saying "You’ve got to be fucking kidding me."
The final scene raises more questions than answers, including who killed Ben. Who is the "her" Charles threatens Ben about? What does Charles know Ben did? Thankfully, Only Murders in the Building is coming back for a third season. Will Mabel, Charles, and Oliver be able to solve Ben’s murder? We’ll have to wait and see.
