Episode transcripts


Straw media. Hi, K K, how are you doing? Good,
how are you doing? I knowwe have some exciting guests lined up.
Yes, absolutely, oh my gosh. Well, in a very exciting lineup
today. It was a very longtitle for our talk today. In fact,
there was so much excitement. OhNice, kind of like a performance
review in itself. I know,right, a little bit of foreshadowing,
right, are imitating life? Yes, oh my gosh, like every other
week, so much to discuss.It was a jammed pack episode. That
special jam packed absolutely, I think, maybe the biggest cliffinger to date.
Right, yeah, there was alot going on. Yeah, hi,
Adina, can you hear us?Oh, she's I'm mute. You have
to hit the button down. Therewe go. I'm muted. Can you
hear you? Did it? Ohmy God, poppy herself, poppy white,
joining us. I can't believe it. It's an honor. It's an
honor to be here. Oh mygosh, Adina, I hope that you
get a chance to see all thelove thrown your way in the discussion threat,
because so many people love poppy andthe way that you've portrayed her.
Oh, thank you. I lovepoppy too, so that makes me really
happy. Yes, on the PODCASTI called it team poppy. There is
a huge team poppy on Reddit andI think, Um, a lot of
people really I don't. I feellike she hits a very human chord for
a lot of people. A lotof people relate to her and her experience.
Yeah, everyone sees a little bitof poppy in themselves. Yeah,
yeah, that's that's very heartwarming.Um, so I'm looking at all these
comments. That's amazing. But yeah, I it's been so exciting to like
finally kind of share this episode.Yes, yes, it's, Um,
a very poppy centric episode. Youactually narrate it. Yeah, and we've
all been waiting for that. WeLove we love pop because we knew that
she was absolutely going to be,um, an essential part of the story
and we're just waiting for it tobe revealed and to have that an episode
like this come up. Oh cool. And yes, it's such a gifted
to be like, you know,a smaller character on this show and then
you never know who's gonna get theirown episode to narrate. So it's like
so exciting because anyone, especially withsuch a large cast too. So that
really said something about you and poppycan you tell us a little bit about
that experience of kind of becoming Um, you know, a little bit coming
off from being a wallflower to beinglike on the center stage, and how
that experience was like for on yourend? Yeah, I mean it was
really fun. I like knew thatthe episode was coming, but I didn't
get the script into you know,I for like a couple of months,
I think. Um. So Iwas like I had no idea and of
course I've made made up so manydifferent things in my head. Um,
it was so fun, and soit was such a comfortable set to be
on. Too. I'm a littlebit like poppy and that I like can
be very diminutive or like Um,assume that people are thinking poorly of me
or something like that, and sosometimes it's hard for me to like h
step into a bigger space or abigger role, um, but it was
especially on a show like this,where there's like legends leading it. But
I was able to, you know, feel comfortable stepping into to set on
this episode and, Um, Ifeel like they are really respectful and Um,
and I feel like they just likefleshed out poppy in such a way
that I was like, Oh,I like I know her. It's really
clear and I really feel for her. So they made it kind of easy.
That's great. I remember one thingwe talked about on the PODCAST.
You we kind of discussed how youcreated the voice to use for poppy.
It's kind of that NPR voice.Do you want to just talk a little
bit about that and how you decidedon what to use? Yeah, I
you know, actually it went back, actually all the way to be really
working audition, when I had auditionedfor Cinda. One of the scenes was
some of her podcast recording. Um. I guess it's just like what I
did the and Oh you know what, actually, memories are coming back to
me. They Um. Originally,I think they might have taken this line
out once Tina was like definitely playingthe role, but like when they go
in in season one to meet Cinda, that was the scene, the audition
scene. First Cinda, Um,because you originally auditioned for the role.
Then ended up playing right, yes, yes, as she obviously should Um,
but they had um. One ofthe lines was like you sound different,
like and they're like a little confusedabout the way that she's speaking.
Um when they hear her not onthe PODCAST, like when they meet her
in person. And so I hadmade like a really bold choice to be
like, to kind of be likeJoey's agent from friends, Um, like
super like New York Willie and Delandlike and it. And then so I
was like what's the total opposite ofthat, like as far as like a
radio voice goes? And and soI was like, yes, it should
be smooth and pr Um. Sothat's that's where that choice came from.
was from this like just trying tobe, uh, the opposite of this
totally absurd choice that I made.That Um, you know, nobody saw
Um. But then, but thenwhen I when they wrote, Poppy John
Hoffin was like I loved your radioVoice, like keep it like that.
I was like, Oh, okay, so then I just kept that.
Yeah, I know. If youever want to start a podcast, Adinat
it down. I know for real. Um and Adina, city bike finder,
asked in the comments. Hi,Adina, thank you for participating.
Did you spend a lot of timestudying Tina phase performance as Sinda as a
basis? Um, I know thatyou kind of Said you you were going
for Sinda initially, but did anythingchange for you when Tina assumes that role
Um. Yeah, I mean,I mean I've basically seen everything that Tina
they has ever done, so Ifeel like I didn't need to like study
her, but I definitely was excitedto play with being in the room with
her and seeing, like what Iwhat poppy would copy. I never realized
that poppy friends with copy Um.Interesting, uh. One of the first
times that they that I had aninteraction with the Um once I got cast,
they like quite quickly sent over Ithink it was a p a,
or it might have been a customerssince and I don't remember. Or maybe
it was props, because glasses aretechnically props, not costumes, Um,
and they fitted me for glasses becausethey told me that I was going to
be wearing the exact same glasses asCinda, which I thought was hilarious,
and like then I was like okay, now I get to like see what
what I can copy from her,and so it doesn't always work to do
that, but I feel like I'mlike poppy, is always hanging on every
word that she says and if Sindahas a reaction to somebody else, then
like definitely I wouldn't plan it ahead, but I would just like watch her
like a hawk while we were shootingand then, like, you know,
in a poppy way, try toemulate whatever her reaction had been. That's
hilarious. It is and it's sucha healthy foundation to have so much Tina
Fae work out there to study.Oh, absolutely, and she's just so
incredible. Yeah, and she's solike cool and calm and collected, which
is like the opposite of me.So it's nice to like have that to
play against myself. And poppy definitelylooks up to Sinda as a mentor person
and, UH, probably takes insome style tips and personality tips as much
as she can. Definitely definitely calmstruggle, says coppies, my new favorite
character, with a dancing emoji.I think a lot of I think they're
not alone in that, not atall. Yeah, that's amazing. Anyone
has any questions? From here untilthe end of the show, please feel
free to raise your hand by hittingthe hand icon if you'd like to come
up and ask a question live orto make some comments live. Alternatively,
of course, we're always sleuthing thecomments, as you can see, so
if that is more of Your Cupof tea, feel free to keep on
typing and sending those comments in thatway. Okay, we actually have a
couple of race hands. So areyou guys ready for a couple of people
to come on stage? Sounds good. I just sent an invite to yeah,
her and I think that's Howard astheir icons. So I need to
see this. I know I thinkit is. I think I can see.
Yes, I can see. Okay, you're on. If you'd like
to UN mute. Thank you guysso much for having me. So first
thing you explain. Um, Ipicked Howard because I think he may be
involved and then also, Um,I just think he's cute and I really
hope he's not involved because I don'tknow. I don't want anything bad to
happen to Sevelle and so Um.But I do have a couple of questions.
So I think in this Um episode, one thing that we navigate a
lot is boundaries, like we seeum like Mabel's boundaries being tested by Alice
in this and their relationship, andthen Charles is handling his boundaries with both
says and Jane in this episode,and then Oliver is like trying to define
his Um like thing with his son, who may not be his son,
and we're still trying to figure thatout. And then obviously poppies, Um,
dynamic with Sinda, so I guesslike Mike, and then obviously the
boundaries with the tunnels and then goingon rabbical Um. So I guess my
question is, do you think thatwe're gonna see this pinnacle of the boundaries
being tested and do you think thatthat is what led to Buddy's murder?
Is Her being testy and taking thingsa little too far? Very smart question.
Well, it certainly. It certainlyseems like poppy was kind of pushing
boundaries towards the end of the episodewhen she was kind of dishing on Cinda
to Mabel. Yeah, well,I mean I feel like when somebody doesn't
set their boundaries very well, Um, it tends to, you know,
explode somewhere eventually. I said,I would say that that, Parabo,
believe, could be said for allof the boundaries that you listed. Yeah,
and so I feel like, yeah, maybe they'll be like a journey
of seeing if people like take careof themselves and set their boundaries or don't,
and then what does that mean?What are the repercussions of that?
Yeah, so basically, let's allagree like to set broundaries so we don't
die. Don't hold everything in,because you'll explode. That's your question.
Thank you so much. Yeah,her, thank you all right, and
try reading. You are on ifyou'd like to mute and ask your questions.
So after this episode, Adina,I have a whole new appreciation for
poppy and she's a really cool characterand there's just so much more. But
I guess you sort of talked aboutthis a little, but for you,
once you found out that you weregoing to be narrating many parts of this
episode, what was that like foryou a learning that you were going to
get to do that and then bein the process of that? What was
that like? Yeah, finding thatout was just like so exciting. It
was just such an honor to toknow that the creators like trusted me.
I feel like when you have like, you know, a two line role
or something like that and you're nota famous person, it takes a lot
of trust for people to give youa bigger role and and so it was
just like really overwhelmingly lovely to begiven that gift. And then I was
just so curious about like what Iwas going to learn about poppy and then
just wanting to do well, Um, and and honor the story and with
all the writers are creating. Andso then when I got the script,
I mean if we're going to getlike Nitty Gritty nerdy actor, I like,
you know, like printed out allthe pages and then, like I
had, I worked on them sceneby scene and like any questions I had,
like a motive or anything like that. And actually I felt like what
was the most important for her wasto Um, kind of build the emotional
life underneath the words Um, likewhat her dream is and then what the
like worst case scenario is and whatshe's fighting against and what her fear is,
Um, because I feel like that'swhy she's so anxious and or like
anxious to please. They're eager toplease Um. It's because she's fighting,
she's she's trying to succeed against somethingthat maybe she thinks she's a failure or
something like that. So it's kindof like building that emotional life underneath.
So that that was you know,could just be with me while I was
present. That's awesome. Thank you. Yeah, thank you. Thanks so
much. Try Reading Bacon Keish.You're on. You're making us hungry.
Well, thank you. I'm gladthat everyone here likes bacon teach. Um.
So I actually have two questions,if I can ask two questions,
Um. One is just a funone and one is something that I'm actually
curious about. So the first oneis that I discovered last week that Mrs
Gambellini is actually a perfect Anagram forM Moura Sibling, which just feels like
way too close to be coincidental.So I'd love to know what you guys
think about that. And the secondone is what kind of like, aside
from poppy kind of teaming up withMabel to try and give her some dirt
on Cinda canning, what kind oflike revenge do you think poppy would get
on Sinda? Like? Do youthink she's a mayor in the shampoo battle
kind of girl, or is shegonna be like sneaking the Gluten Croutons in
her salad instead of free like?I'd like to know what poppy would deal
to try and get revenge on someone. That's a good question, because poppy
knows so much about Sinday. Yeah, the first question I will not speak
to but interesting, interesting, Um, we'll keep an eye on that one.
Yeah, the second question, Um, yeah, I mean I think
poppy is really smart. I thinkthat she wouldn't give up everything that she's
worked for. So I think she'dhave to be like I think that she
would do something really well planned outwhere she would know that it maybe wouldn't
be obvious that it was her littlewell, yeah, like covert operation.
Yeah, Um, and you knowshe knows everything that'Sinda doesn't like. So
I think would probably be something thatshe would, you know, plan for
a long time and make sure thatit was really satisfying. I love to
keep and you know, we I'mso sorry, we should have given a
disclaimer that, um, we willbe discussing spoilers here from the episode,
but we cannot elicit future spoilers fromthe writers and the cast. A little
bit more about what's going on,and I know that people will try,
but Um, we'll we'll just bea little bit more explicit about it this
little s A. Thank you somuch, Bacon Keish. You and I
believe Ben and Joshua are here.Adina, if you're least stay and I'm
sure people have continue to have questionsfor you if you are willing to stay.
But Hi, Ben and Josh Heythere, hey, guys, hi,
we got everybody, we really do. There's so much love for the
from the community around this episode.It's I think after every episode there's like
a surge of of excitement and whatnot. By think seeing poppy get her her
flowers has been particularly exciting for everyone. So thank you, then and Josh
are doing such a great job ofbringing her story to the forefront. Definitely
a fan favorite. Yes, wehave fun and also a Dina is so
great. UH, like we,poppy is a delightful character. So it
was a lot of fun. Thankyou. gave me a huge, huge
gift. I am going to aska question from the comments while we bring
up another person, if that's allright. Um, I want to just
make sure. Okay. It's frompuzzled exchange and I think it's a good
question for the three of you,which is, do you guys go on
Reddit and if you do, doyou have any fun stories about your experience
there? Have you gotten down votedand has anyone gotten close to guessing what
is going on or are they justtotally off? I I definitely checked the
reddit sometimes. Um, I havenot commented and not been debited, but
it is fun to read and Ifeel like sometimes, uh, there's a
sense of like wow, there,we're getting way too much credit. Is
My big takeaway. Sometimes, likeyeah, it's like people are like they're
like, okay, this thing andthis thing couldnot be an accident. I'll
be like actually, oh my God, that was an accident. But but
don't want to don't want to callattention to it. But it is fun
to read everyone's theories. And Iwon't come in on season two, but
it was fun to watch some peopleget pretty close or correct on season one
for sure. Yeah, I'm aninterloper on reddit occasionally. It's yeah,
it's fun to see, yeah,the theories that people come up with and
and just to see that like peopleare excited about figuring it out. Like
that's, I think, the mostexciting thing. Occasionally, I won't say
who, but I am some othercast members will like will text like funny
things that we see on Reddit.Oh my Gosh, oh my gosh.
Yeah, there was a really wellthought out theory this week about Marv um
that we can dive into later on, but the level of detail and sleuthing
is pretty incredible on this sub it'salways fun to hear the rationale of how
they arrived at that theory. Yes, yes, absolutely, Um. And
at the end of the day itreally just makes me feel like anybody could
be a murderer like in my life, in real life. Absolutely hopefully it's
not um inspiring anyone. Fingers crossed, Um and calm struggle asks. Uh.
And this is a fun question becauseit is a fun only murders,
an NPR crossover question, but NPRand poppy separately. Super Fan here.
I'm curious to know if Adina hasa favorite NPR reporter or show, and
I would love to know Ben andJoshua's UH takes on that too, because
maybe there was some inspiration from NPRtaken into this character. I mean,
I definitely like just ripped off TerryGross. Um. I'm more of like
a podcast listener than I am andI listen to NPR in the car,
but I don't think I have afavorite NPR show, but I am a
big, like serial fan. Idefinitely got Terry Gross Vibes from from your
performance of white noise. Thank you. Thank you. Such a great name
for the show too. Poppy hadthat ready to go. Um. I
will say that I uh, thisis a bit of a flex but I'm
a sustaining member of K C RW, member station of NPR in Los Angeles.
Proud member. I wear my hatand t shirt all over town.
How many? How many topebags doI know? Seriously, how many coffee
mugs do I have? Um,and my favorite case R W show is
good food with Evan CLEMB and.Every Saturday I've been I'm consistently brought to
tears by how passionately chefs and likelocal farmers and distillers of spirits will come
on and just talk about how muchthey love making there. There was a
there was a story from some cheesemongerwho, during the pandemic, found a
way to keep from business afloat andI was weeping in the car because it
was so passionate. And so Ifeel like maybe Reddit, Um reddit users
will will find that passion UH interestingtoo. It's beautiful. I love it.
I love it and thank you forsupporting I'm also a proud, you
know, contributor. Um Quick PS A for anyone who is just joining.
We have a Dina who plays poppyfrom only murders, as well as
the writers from season two, episodesix Performance Review, Ben Smith and Joshua
Griffith with us today. So ifyou have questions and you want to ask
them live, hit that hand iconto raise your hands for a chance to
come up. Alternatively, we arechecking the comments, so please continue to
add your fodder there. We arereading through them. I actually have a
couple lined up, Um, andand all two to seven. I've sent
you an invite if you'd like tocome up. You've had your hand raise
for quite sometimes, so I hopeit's honestly. Um. Uh So,
this question comes from uh city bikefinder, who asks two questions. I'll
ask them both for the writers.Do you designate in this script the build
of this mysterious person in the BlackHoodie and where are you inspired by Mark
Roberts, glitter bombs and a veryrandom question, is there someone who really
loves mango Salsa in the writer's room? Um, of the build of the
of the person and dark or andglitter? Um, I think that we
well, we didn't know and wedo know who that person is each time,
and you know person on camera,person and passageways, person on subway,
like, whether or not the sameperson. We know all those identities
and so that is information. Whetheror not it's in the script? I
can't remember, but it is somethingwhen John, the showrunner, works with
all of the production staff in termsof like hiring extras, wardrobe whatever,
like all that information is communicated becauseyou need to get the right size closed
for the person all that. Soit is something. I can't remember if
it's in the script, although weknew who it was. It is something
that's conveyed to all the departments sothat they can get that right. And
I'm unfamiliar with this glitter reference.I don't know, Joshua, do you
know the reference to who was theglitter person? It was the glitter person
is Mark Robers, R O Be R. I wasn't sure who that
was either, but let's know.But we definitely we were not inspired by
that. But after we did writeit, I was watching yellow jackets and
did see that glitter and someone andleaving glitter behind is a plot point in
that show and I was like,Oh man, I had to wait to
next week to see how they paintedoff and wants to pait off. I
was like, I think we're okay, we're doing it. It's like purely
comedy, at least initially so,but that was that was the most that
was the pop culture reference. Thatafter we'd written it, but before we
filmed it, I saw that itwas like, I hope we don't get
too close to them. I thinkthe inspiration was just a deep seated hatred
of glitter and how it's like itgets into every wrinkling credits of your body
and never leaves. Please M Ithink that was it. It reminded me
of those porch pirates who would stealAmazon packages and people would kind of get
in their revenge by doing things likethat. That's always in my head.
Yeah, yeah, that feels likepandemic things. Yeah, exactly. Um,
thank you so much for that.I love that. It's it's just
like you know, it was reallyan Ode to Glitter. Um. This
question is for Ben and Joshua fromChelsea and icy two hundred. They ask
there were several motifs in this episode, the doublings of Charles and Saz Sinda
and Poppy Mabel with Alice's reenactment,and also the workplace settings BRASOS, slash
only murders office. Uh. didthese things rise organically during the writing of
the episode, or were the motifsdesignated when the writing room was breaking down
season two. Hm, that's agood question. I think I would have
to say they it's I'm always stunnedby how some of those types of parallels
raise, you know, come cometo the surface organically and uh, whether
by Osmosis or because of the thingsthat writers are going on are, you
know, going on in the personallives of writers, they sort of make
their way into ideas in unconscious ways. I would have to say that it
was probably unconscious. But even rewatchingit recently, I was spotting other synchronicities
to like multiple breakups, you knowversions of breakups, Cinda and poppy and
SAS and Jan and Alice and right. Yeah, it's a yeah, it's
sort of a breakup episode two.Yeah, but yeah, I I don't
I can't recall that being a consciousdecision at our ploy. But it's a
good observation and maybe one of thoseexamples of like going on to Reddit and
being like, Huh, it wasn'tintentional, but I don't want to tell
them they're wrong. I think yourpresence on Reddit is just any presence,
is one that we all appreciate andlove. So Um, this one.
This question. Next question is forAdina from Hannah Lamp Adina in the podcast.
You say you originally auditioned for Cinda. If you could play any other
character besides poppy or Sinda, whowould it be? Mm Hmmm, Um,
oh, that's a good question.Howard, amazing. Yeah, why
Howard? I love Howard. Umand I just I get the kind of
like Um, chatty awkwardness. Youknow, it's it's it's like a different
flavor the same ice cream that poppyis. Yes, yes, I love
it. Two takes of rocky roadby two differentemakers. Good analogy. I'm
going to bring try reading back onstage. They've raised their hands, but
Um, and then I have anotherquestion from the comments, but try reading.
You're on if you'd liked and mute. So this question is for Ben
and Josh and knowing that there werea lot of characters that we saw again,
you know, even Lucy was onfor just a little bit and SAS
was back on and you know,we just got a lot of different characters
that we had already seen before forthis specific episode, did either of you
have a favorite character to write about, even if it was just for you
know, one scene or something?Oh Um, that's what I'm trying to
think of all the characters. Youknow, I think, UH, Jan,
I'm asked at Tacki Jan. Imean that whole Jans has in general,
or so furthered together like it.You know, bringing Jan back this
season with like the mask is offand it's it's all on the surface,
like she's just she's lost it,like that was a really fun new color
to write because I got we gotto a little rite and for her last
season, but this is the firsttime and you know, got to write
for her this year. So thatwas probably probably mine. Tina fe I
don't think we saw her since thefirst episode of this season, if I
remember incorrectly, and she has sucha swagger in this episode that I like,
Oh my God, she could makeanything that we write sounds amazing,
but it was just really great toto write for her and such a privilege.
It was my first time writing forthat character and, Um, I
just loved her performance of it.Thank you. Yeah, thank you.
Thanks so much. Try Reading Right. Bringing on another person because their hand
raised. Puzzled Exchange. You havean invite waiting for you and I just
realized I also have to apologize.I haven't been reading people's flair on this
club Breddit. They have the abilityto add a little. Only murders flare
next to their names. So Hannahleft is where are the balls? Howard,
you asked the last question, sowell, I'll highlight that acknowledge it.
Yep, I have to acknolge becausethey're too dead puzzled. Exchange.
You're on. If you'd like donemute. So what I wanted to say
first to the writers is I lovethe show and Um, I wanted to
talk to you about bunny. Ilove the Guy, the way you guys
wrote her. She's such a welldeveloped character and I mean just really amazing.
And then in episode three there area couple of characters that commented that
buddy was a freak. So Ithought that just added something else to and
so my question for you is,so now buddy, you make her love
us love her, and then shegets stabbed eight times. So I'm just
asking. So it's a murder ina comedy and you know, huge props
for being able to do both ofthose. But now we're adding slasher and
I'm wondering if if anybody in thewriter's room might have said maybe we're going
a bridge too far here, becauseit's not like you had an episode with
a she needed killing kind of Thameor anything. You know. Yeah,
wow, uh, yeah, Bunny'sdeath. When you lay it out like
that, we sure do sound prettycallous and terrible. I still love you,
though. Thank you know, butI think you're I mean, I
don't have a very thoughtful answer besidessaying that. Like you're right, like
when you when you hear about thosegruesome details and then you get to know
the character more, I think itbecomes even more upsetting. Um, and
hopefully, you know, will behopefully it will be satisfying when we ideally,
hopefully catch the person responsible for it. Um, and you know,
I I don't that may be thepayoff. Yeah, but you're right.
Like it, it does kind ofgo from sensationalist slasher, you know,
number of stabs to kind of likemeeting the person and we only kind of
learned about her after we've she's passedaway. But you're right the number.
It's a high number. I'm tryingto think if we had a conversation in
the room about the number. Ithink we probably, I mean, I
don't know that we had a conversationnecessarily about this, but I think it's
it's operating on some level in theshow at all times. Is that we're
we're sending up the Genre Ryan Umand sort of commenting on the way that
those podcasts and shows treat victims anduse victims to create Athos and play with
our emotions and entertain us. Ithink humanizing bunny in that way and then
seeing her murdered is it brutally?Yeah, you know what I in my
mind, what I've done is I'vecome up with this whole different scenario.
Funny passes away peacefully and her sleepand then is stabbed afterwards, like like
maybe Howard comes over and tries totake when he kidnaps her for like a
Um, a bar crawl that night. It's very merciful. Yeah, I
mean actually, I have it allfigured out. Okay. So, any
ways to thank you. Yeah,thank you for watching. Thank you.
Thanks so much. Puzzled Exchange.All right, Ben and Josh, I
know that you you all have togo very soon. So one last question
from the comments. This is fromAli Mabel and their flair is the Charles
is silent Um. They asked.Out of the aired episodes, is there
one that will look back on andthink it gave us the most clues once
the ministry is unraveled. Good question, I feel like. I feel like
that's a great question and one thatwe can't answer. You know, I
know. Uh Um, I'm sorry. Yeah, it's an even numbered episode.
Everything's in episode twelve. It's aneven number one and it's it's to
ten. To ten is the onethat will make it all. There's a
lot of payoff. Yeah, uh, I wish we could have this conversation
after the season, but and goback and talk about little moments that were
important to us. But yeah,I feel like we'll get reprimanded if we
say anything. Hey, I'm sorry, bad moderator, because that was a
little bit of a hard question.It's fine, Um. Well, thank
you both so much for joining.Doors always open and you're welcome back if
you want to have that after seasondiscussion. You welcome back with open arms.
Um, so let us know.Okay, thank you guys so much.
I hope you enjoyed the rest ofthe season. Thank you so much.
Thank you. Yes, we're onit. Yes, what's happening?
I know, I thought I'd try. I know exactly. There was a
question about when season if season threehas a release date. But Um,
I'm like, I don't know if, if anyone knows that yet. Yeah,
I don't know. Yeah, Adinaalso left. Thank you, Adina.
Let's love your way. Yes.Well, Kate, do you want
to do your I know would bea WHO on its summit of one through
your theories for this week for everybody. I know people love hearing about it.
Yes, uh, for the WHOdone it summit from our podcast this
week, I picked uh, Cindajust because of how she treated poppy and
uh, I just don't feel likeshe's a good person. I think there's
I feel like she is jealous ofthe trio and the success they've had with
their podcast. Uh. I kindof said this before too, and I
find she's a bit petty because theyalso she named her podcast only murderers plural
in the building. Um. Andfinally, I think that she did not
want to go on location again forher next show. She was able to
stay home in New York. Sofor those reasons, this week I picked
Cinda. Awesome, amazing. Ithink there's Gosh, it's like everyone could
be uh is a suspect, butit's right. That's the fun. There's
a lot of chatter on the discussionthread about how that last, I shouldn't
say the last, close to lastscene where Mabel sees alice recreate frequently her
apartment, the mural and the stabbingpart. Yes, and it did not
go unnoticed that her ability to recreatethe mural and Mabel's apartment was so easy
for her to do that a lotof people think that Alice recreated the Rose
Cooper savage painting right with Charles's father, with Charles's father. Um, any
thoughts there? And Uh did that? Did that sway you at all?
Alice is always on my mind.I wonder if we kind of talked about
this before, but I wonder ifthere could be two different things going on
this season like last season. Lastseason we had the UH Theo and his
father stealing jewelry and uh items fromthe funeral home as well as the murder.
So I'm wondering if there is somethingwith the painting where it's a separate
story that's not exactly part of themurder. So maybe Alice has her own
thing and she's guilty of something.Uh, maybe she's an art forger or
something like that, and maybe themurderer is Sinda yeah, yeah, Um,
the discussion throughout this week was alot of I'd say, a lot
of empathy and a lot of love. But of love for poppy, a
lot of empathy for Mabel for havingmaybe what could be the worst day ever,
having having to release that episode.They lost after their glitter bombing.
They lost their suspects, their suspectshe walked in on her girlfriend doing a
thing. And then there's the subwayride. Yeah, exactly right. So
a lot of a lot of Um, people dissecting that and feeling sending all
of love there, and also alot of people sending a lot of love
their way for Oliver and what he'sgoing through with his whole paternity. He's
still waiting for the results and Um, so a lot of chatter about those
things, I would say, specificallythis week. But there was a really
compelling theory on the on the subredditthis week about MARV and they go back
to episode or season one where theyonly have four views and it's the episode
where the Arconi acts are introduced,as well as when Winnie gets poisoned,
and they state that in that episodethat they only have four views on their
podcast. And that it's later revealedto be the arconiacs. And at the
beginning of the episode, the EasterEgg are is three industrial fans on top
of the building, but there's onlythree. So they think that one of
the four, our cony X,is not actually a fan. Yes,
like a sleeper agent or something,your agent exactly. So we infiltrated that
group for whatever purposes exactly. ThoseEaster eggs are definitely something to keep an
eye on, that's for sure.Yes, which I thought was a really,
really cool observation. It's a verygreat observation. I'm still thinking of
last week with the Brady Budge theoriestoo. I know so much to keep
track of this subreadit is truly incredible, such a such a pleasure. As
always, we look forward to thisevery week. So thank you all for
joining and for bringing your friends.Thank you for having us on. Oh
my gosh, we love it Umand have such a great rest of your
day and thanks everyone for listening andtune in here. Next week we're going
to have more talks with the folksfrom only murders in the Pod, so
keep sending your theories and comments andwe'll talk next week. Thanks everybody great.
Thank you, Bye Hye
