Season 2 episode 9 of Only Murders in the Building: A painting ...

Many of us have enteredOnly Murders in the Buildingseason 2 episode 9, but there's also a pressing issue that needs to be addressed.

So what is it? Were we talking here about something fairly simple: What is the world around the rose Cooper painting? How is it tied to everything? This was a major theme in the first couple of episodes, but it has virtually vanished.

Take a look at our new Only Murders in the Building review! Below, we take you through all of the major news from season 2 episode 8. Be sure to SUBSCRIBEto Matt & Jess on YouTube for more insight.

Sure, we assume that the whole painting storyline is a red herring, but we have a hard time imagining that. Why would there be a doctored painting out there at some point? Clearly at some point, there must be a person who wanted to alter them and believes there is value in the original. Also, there must be meaning that Alice is a part of this story and might easily reproduce a fairly good replica.

The only explanation for the painting being involved in the murder but not the murder is that, somehow, it was used to just convey to Charles that he discovered the painting and wanted it. But why would he have a doctored copy? Something does not quite add up.

For the time being, let's use the puzzle analogy that the show loves so much. The problem is that for the time being, the writers were having a difficult time putting the pieces in their proper place.
