"Only Murders in the Building" season two released its final episode on Aug. 23, and we finally know the answer to this year's big question: who killed Bunny? At the end of season one, Mabel (Selena Gomez) found Bunny (Jayne Houdyshell) apparently stabbed with a knitting needle in the former's apartment. In season two, it became obvious someone was framing Mabel, Charles (Steve Martin), and Oliver (Martin Short) for the murder, though viewers were pretty sure they were innocent.

In the final episode, the pair responsible for Bunny's death was final revealed: Poppy White (Adina Verson) and Detective Kreps (Michael Rapaport). At the beginning of the episode, Poppy tried to shift the blame for the murder to her boss, Cinda Canning (Tina Fey), who did seem devious enough to pull it off. But she makes a fatal error that lets Mabel finally finish connecting the pieces of the puzzle: Poppy orders the #14 sandwich at the diner, liverwurst and marmalade. When Bunny, in her dying moments, said "14, Savage," she was referencing Poppy's disgusting sandwich order.

All this leads to an amazing confrontation where Mabel, Charles, and Oliver get all the building's main residents and employees together with Cinda and Poppy. At first, it seems like they're accusing Cinda of the murder, and all the pieces do fit together neatly. But then Mabel changes her mind and accuses Alice (Cara Delevingne), who confesses and stabs Charles, seemingly killing him. It's a shocking moment. Once the group has Alice restrained, Cinda compliments Mabel's detective work and offers her a podcast of her own. This is when Poppy ultimately snaps, denied the professional recognition she's been desperate for the whole time. She confesses: she wanted to make a podcast about the Rose Cooper (Shirley MacLaine) painting, but Cinda said no one is interested in art, only murder. She killed Bunny to make a better story. Poppy and Detective Kreps are swiftly arrested for their crimes.

Ahead, revisit all the evidence against every character in season two along with how we ultimately found out their innocence or guilt.
