Today, we look at the Only Murders in the Building opening title Easter Egg for the sixth episode of Season 3, “Ah, Love!.”
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 that include Easter Eggs hinting as to the plot of the episode in question.
Season 3 is currently airing, so I’ll share the easter egg for each episode after it airs.
Obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD!
This is a cute one. At the end of the credits, as we pull back from the building to show the silhouettes of Charles, Oliver and Mabel, a sandbag falls to the ground. This, of course, is a reference to the multiple sandbags that fall in the episode (with one pair of sandbags almost killing Charles).
It’s hard to see in a screenshot (it’s easier when you see it fall), so here, I circled it in red…
