What I’m Watching: Only Murders in the Building

Only Murders in the Building: Season 2, Episode 4 “Here’s Looking at You” (B+)

I didn’t expect Lucy to come back in such a casual way, and I’m not sure what I thought she was going to be like. She ended up being quite casual and made even Mabel seem older and out of touch. That video she recorded while she was in the secret passageway with the killer going right by her was intense, but she didn’t get anything that could be too useful, and it seems like she’s leaving for now. It was productive timing for Charles to be distracted since he couldn’t deal with being told at the last minute that Uncle Brazzos was now in a wheelchair and suffering from dementia, an apparent way to be able to easily write him out in case he went to prison. I enjoyed having everyone notice the bloody knife while Charles was making omelets and then hoping that it wouldn’t drop and fall on Howard’s head while he was standing right under it. Getting Nina to confess wasn’t too productive, and all they got was Charles patting himself on the back for his delivery of “Do I deliver, or do I deliver?” when she went into labor while they were interrogating her. Teddy is enduring his own heartbreak thanks to the fractured relationship with his son, and it looks like he’s going to take out his misery on Oliver. I’m excited to see the return of a familiar face from season one, whose reason for reappearing is still a mystery at this moment: Jan!
