Who is The Killer in Glass Onion: Solves the Mystery: At the heart of each of Rian Johnson’s bestselling Knives Out trilogy films are murder mysteries in the vein of Agatha Christie, but there are surprises galore throughout.
How often did Knives Out make you think you understood what had happened and the mystery had been resolved to find out later that what you thought you knew had been drastically altered? The second chapter, Glass Onion, has viewers again on the edge of their seats for every twist and turn because of Johnson’s attention to detail as an artist and concern for his tale.
Viewers only learn the identity of the murder victim more than an hour into Glass Onion. And then you start to wonder if the fundamental objective was someone else. Then you understand that the actual homicide under investigation involved an unanticipated person.
Johnson’s Glass Onion is so titled not only for the elaborate Glass Onion that Miles Bron, the tech tycoon played by Edward Norton, built but also for the way the movie is organized—like an onion. What we initially see is simply a portion of the overall image; as the film progresses and we start to reveal more layers, things make more sense.

Thus, as the film progresses, we understand that Benoit Blanc was not purposefully transported to Miles’ island. We also know that he wasn’t sent unintentionally. Helen Brand (Janelle Monáe), who suspects her twin sister—Andi, Miles Bron’s exiled companion from the Social Network—was murdered, hired Benoit. Andi filed a lawsuit against Miles after being fired from their business for opposing a novel, deadly form of energy.
But she was unsuccessful since none of their friends were willing to support her. But Andi sent a statement through email shortly before she passed away saying that she had discovered proof that would dispel any remaining skepticism about her allegations. Helen thinks that Andi was murdered and her body staged as a suicide but that her death had not yet been made public.
So she comes up with a strategy with Blanc. Both will be at the gathering on Bron’s island, where everyone is playing a selfish role, including the dull characters portrayed by Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Leslie Odom Jr., and Dave Bautista. The only one who will be aware that something is amiss is the one who killed Andi.
But as Blanc rapidly solves Miles’ Gillian Flynn-penned murder mystery, things genuinely take a turn. That switch? It happens when YouTuber and Men’s Rights Activist Duke (Bautista) passes away in the middle of the celebration. Everyone suddenly becomes frightened, and the pals begin accusing “Andi.” And it’s not until “Andi” is shot by an unknown assailant in the dark—while speaking with Blanc—that he finally brings everyone together and decides it’s time to solve this riddle.
In Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, who is the killer?
Rian Johnson does a much better job describing it through Daniel Craig’s recognizable southern drawl than we ever could. There is a long, convoluted explanation. However, the basic premise is that anybody who has benefited from Miles’ riches and influence in some way is a suspect because they all have a vested interest in keeping Miles safe from whatever facts Andi might have revealed.
Benoit Blanc, however, is aware of a crucial fact: The tech “genius” and billionaire Miles Bron is a moron. He frequently employs phony terms that, in his opinion, mean something they don’t. He has no sense at all. Whether on purpose or not, he wears the same outfit as Tom Cruise’s dumb motivational speaker character from Magnolia in the movie’s flashback sequences. The dude is a fool!
Miles sped over to Andi’s house in his beloved sportscar and poisoned her himself as soon as he realized she possessed something that may destroy him. About the earlier in the movie incident where Miles nearly ran him over at “Andi’s house,” which Miles later lied and claimed referred to a party at Anderson Cooper’s home, Duke spotted him there.
While nobody on the island knew Andi had passed away, the news broke during the celebration when Duke’s phone blew up. As soon as Duke realized Miles was guilty, he tried to blackmail him by showing him his phone in exchange for Miles helping him promote his YouTube channel. Then, Miles, ever the fool, poisoned Duke in full view by adding pineapple juice to his drink, which Duke is allergic to.
He then switched the cups to give the impression that Miles was the intended victim. Not a bad strategy for a moron. But he is once more a fool! And Blanc figured it all out with Helen’s assistance.
Of course, Miles understands how strong he is and how much the other people in the room depend on him, which is the problem. Blanc frequently tells Helen that while he can solve the crime, he is powerless over the law. So Helen does everything she can to destroy Miles’ priceless garbage, including—yes—the Mona Lisa that was lent out. As they join forces against Miles, the others also start having fun.

The only time they ultimately decide to remember all the bad things Miles has done is after they blow up his house with his very combustible and exceedingly dangerous fuel while they are sitting outdoors. He will likely spend a considerable amount of time in prison.
That’s all, then! Mr. Benoit Blanc produced another outstanding piece of work again, and the entire cast delivered exceptional supporting work. Knives Out 3 is here. In addition, there are Knives Out 4, Knives Out 5, and…
