Today, we look at the first two season two Only Murders in the Building opening title Easter Eggs.
In Pop Culture Easter Eggs, I share with you pop culture “easter eggs.” An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/homage/in-joke that is hidden in works that you are meant to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check ’em all out and enjoy!
The excellent Hulu TV series, Only Murders in the Building, created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman and starring Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, has a brilliant opening title sequence produced by Elastic, the same design firm that produced the iconic Game of Thrones opening credits (among many other credit sequences and other awesome design stuff).
The credits also include Easter Eggs hinting as to the plot of the episode in question. I previously listed all of Season 1’s easter eggs in a post here, but Season 2 launched this week with two episodes, so I’ll share the easter eggs each week (and I guess I’ll do a wrap-up post at the end of the season).
Obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD!

The first easter egg of Season 2 is the erotic painting of Charles’ father that will obviously be a key part of Season 2, seen in the background of Charles’ apartment…
Bunny, the murder victim in Season 2, had a parrot that will also play a key role, and her she is walking the parrot instead of the dog she is normally walking in the opening credits…
