‘Only Murders in the Building’: I’m Not Sold that [Spoiler] is Glitter Guy

Only Murders in the Building gave us a pretty big reveal at the end of the episode, but I’m not so sure that this person is the Glitter Guy. Some glitter on their neck is not enough to convince me.

When Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez) saw glitter on Detective Kreps’ (Michael Rapaport) keck, my first thought was, of course, they’re dealing with a crooked cop. But if you think back to all the times we’ve seen Glitter Guy, the park, Coney Island and the night of Bunny’s murder, he doesn’t have the same build as Kreps. That doesn’t mean the Kreps isn’t involved somehow. He’s close on the trail or working with the Glitter Guy. But I do not believe that he is the Glitter Guy. It’s a fun twist for the show and their podcast. But the writers will have to give me much more than glitter on the kneck.

Yeah, sure, it’s very suspicious. Since how many men have glitter on their necks? Maybe he played with a niece or daughter, and they got glitter on him. Or perhaps he works in a bar after work, dresses up and wears glitter. But, of course, it could just be a coincidence. I still don’t like him, though. He has it out for Mabel, Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin) and Oliver Putnam (Martin Short).

The hurt arm does ring more alarms. But do we know where Mabel stabbed Glitter Guy? It’s strange that Kreps would lie about why his arm hurt. I don’t believe it’s a tattoo, especially given his tone when saying it. But if the writers do make him glitter guy, they messed up. You can’t have a glitter guy running around with one body build and then reveal him with another. I realize in films like Scream, the real killer is not behind the mask. It’s another actor playing Ghost Face. But the costume can hide physical appearance. The writers should know that we are looking for clues. And the build of Glitter Guy and Detective Kreps don’t match.

He’s still being very suspicious. He just happens to be on the Upper West Side. I’m with Mabel. I don’t buy it. It would be more believable that he was checking up on them, which could be what he was doing. He figured he’d catch them in the act of something during the blackout. He’s one to watch out for, regardless of if I believe he’s the Glitter Guy or not.

Also is it strange that Lucy (Zoe Margaret Colletti) was speaking with Detective Kreps? She knows they don’t trust the police. So, why go and tell him what happened? She’s also always around when something is happening. And Charles has already trusted one woman. We know he can be blindsided. She may be someone to keep an eye on too.
