Only Murders within the Constructing’s Nina Is Inspiring and Terrifying on the Same Time

Spoilers ahead.

Season 2 of Only Murders within the Constructing has brought us a slew of recent characters including mysterious artist Alice, played by Cara Delevingne; Amy Schumer, played by, well, Amy Schumer; and Bunny’s mother, played by the legendary Shirley MacLaine. But we also get another surprise newcomers, comparable to incoming Arconia board president Nina Lin, played by Dave and Tigertail star Christine Ko. While we only caught a glimpse of her within the season’s first two episodes, we learned somewhat bit more about her this week, and I’m unsure if the small print are entirely comforting.

The very first thing it’s worthwhile to find out about Nina is that she’s incredibly on top of her shit. As we see in a flashback to Bunny’s final day, she’s memorized the Arconia rulebook inside out, which makes her a fitting successor to guide the Arconia board. She knows who to call to repair the bulb within the fountain or lay out floor mats when it starts to snow. She knows that the mops are within the window closet, second door from the steps. She has such a keen eye for detail that she’s noticed the flowers by the elevator need refreshing. Nina is incredibly dedicated to the role, even before she’s officially began and although she’s pregnant. So pregnant, in actual fact, that she’s attempting to induce labor with a special ankle massage while whispering to her womb, “Come on, eject!” On top of all that, she’s also impeccably dressed. In episode 3, the hedge fund manager-by-day exudes cozy-chic in her off-white coat, red dress, knit headband, and cream heeled booties. What cannot this woman do—except perhaps evade suspicions of murder?

Only Murders is a whodunnit, in spite of everything, with Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell) slain and her killer still unknown. But could Nina be the killer? Her relationship with Bunny began as a sweet mentorship, but when Bunny decided to not retire as board president in the long run, thus keeping Nina from the promotion, they get right into a bitter fight and Nina’s ulterior motives are exposed. She resents that Bunny became board president due to nepotism (her mother had the same role) and, more importantly, consider Bunny is keeping the Arconia up to now. Nina has a plan to “modernize” and “monetize” the historical constructing, to bring it into the twenty first century, and she or he won’t let a “relic” like Bunny stop her.

Now, we have gotten hints of Nina’s ferocity before. In an earlier episode, Howard warned that she’s is an even bigger “bitch” than the no-nonsense Bunny, and Nina said herself that she would give the Arconia residents “hell” in the event that they didn’t follow the constructing rules. But is that enough to persuade us that she’s a possible murderer? Was she so dead-set on becoming board president that she killed Bunny for the coveted role? Or is that every one somewhat too obvious?

All we all know is that by the tip of the episode we see how Bunny dies: She answers a knock on the door of her apartment (considering it’s Charles, Mabel, or Oliver) to search out a mysterious visitor (whom we won’t see). While the person stays unidentified, they appear to be someone Bunny knows; when she opens the door, she asks, “What the fuck do you you would like?” hinting that she recognizes the face. The person responds by attacking Bunny, stabbing her to death. Whether that late-night visitor was a jealous mentee or another person stays up within the air.
