Glass Onion’s Real Mystery Explained

by Lidia Lucovic

In Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, a pivotal scene occurs when Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) spoils the fun of Miles Bron’s (Edward Norton) murder mystery game by correctly guessing the killer’s identity and motive before the game even began.

Writer/director Rian Johnson explains to THR why this scene was important to the story and how it subverted the audience’s expectations. By including the denouement scene in the first act, Johnson was able to clear off the table and announce that the audience’s initial expectations for the movie were not what the movie would actually be. This early twist added to the intrigue of the story, introducing the idea that someone on the island might actually be killed. Johnson’s comments regarding Glass Onion’s pivotal scene can be found below.

“I thought, ‘How fun would it be to do the denouement scene, the Blanc-wrapping-the-whole-thing-up scene, somewhere in the first act, to basically clear off the table the expectation that the mystery they’re all there for is going to be the mystery?’ This is the scene that announces [what] you think you’re settling in for is not what the movie is actually going to be.”

As Johnson pointed out, the story of Glass Onion initially appeared to center around Miles’ game and his potential death. However, even after Blanc solved the mystery, the film revealed that each member of “the disrupters” had a motive to kill the billionaire. The true mystery of Glass Onion focused on Andi Brand (Janelle Monáe) and her fate, which was unveiled in an unexpected flashback. Andi used to work with Miles before her termination, which led to her appearing in court where the disrupters lied to protect her former business partner. Andi was subsequently killed, and her twin, Helen, sought Blanc’s help to investigate the murder. Helen informed Blanc that although Andi’s death was made to look like a suicide, there were sleeping pills in her system, suggesting foul play. Blanc convinced Helen to pose as Andi and join the suspects, who he believed would be on Miles’ island in Greece.

The film revealed that Miles was Andi’s killer, as well as the person who shot Helen and killed Duke Cody (Dave Bautista). While it may be more obvious in hindsight, this is what makes the scripts for Glass Onion and the original Knives Out movie so enjoyable. With a third installment on the way, it will be intriguing to see what Benoit Blanc’s next investigation will entail and how Johnson will structure the story. Thus far, each film has been constructed differently, offering surprises in unexpected moments, with the aforementioned scene in Glass Onion being a prime example. It is difficult to envision what Knives Out 3 will be like, but it is bound to be a thrilling ride.
