You can read our full closing explanation here, but in the end, the killer turns out to be tech billionaire, Miles Bron (Edward Norton).

“Glass Onion” begins a few years after Knives Out, with Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) contemplating life at home during lockdown when a sudden case pops up out of the blue. It isn’t long before the detective is whisked away to a Greek island owned by Miles.

But when the businessman’s closest friends arrive on the island, it soon becomes apparent that there is some bad blood among them all, one way or another. It all stems from the fact that Miles conned Cassandra “Andy” Brand (Janelle Monáe) out of their flagship company, Atmos.

To make things more interesting, it wasn’t Miles who invited Benoit, and it quickly becomes a race to see who is causing havoc during the fun weekend.

When Duke Cody (Dave Bautista) is mysteriously murdered in front of everyone, Andi’s twin sister Helen (also played by Janelle Monáe) is also shot in the middle of a blackout while masquerading as her sister.

Although director Rian Johnson casts Miles as a potential victim of the unknown killer, the film’s ending reveals the billionaire as the person behind it all, as he attempts to cover up his own dastardly actions.

But there are four clear clues early in the film that point to the end of “Glass Onion.”

Miles Bron almost “pie” Duke Cody near Andy Brand’s house.

When the group first arrives at the Glass Onion mansion, they all reminisce about their antics over the years by the pool, and Duke recalls the moment Miles almost “slips” when the YouTuber was driving by Andi’s house.

Miles quickly interrupts to drop Anderson Cooper’s name, suggesting that this incident occurred outside the TV host’s home when they were heading to a party.

But what Duke was actually referring to was the moment when Miles almost ran into him when he was speeding away from Andy Brand’s house, after the billionaire murdered his ex-boyfriend over the rights to their company and made it a suicide.

Cody knew it was Miles who almost flattened him because of the signature billionaire blue Porsche kid he constantly brags about. But later, when Duke discovers the press release about Andy’s death on his phone, he quickly puts two and two together to discover that Miles killed her.

That’s why Cody blackmails his friend to push his brand even further, and that’s what kills.

Duke Cody explains that he has a severe pineapple allergy.

Duke gets very drunk at the party, before choking to death on what appears to be nothing. He actually went into anaphylactic shock due to the pineapple juice in his drink.

It’s the perfect setup for Miles because Duke already told everyone how to kill him earlier in the movie. Before the gang sets foot on the island, he says he “don’t mess with pineapples” because of his allergy.

It would have been easy for Miles to pass Duke a pineapple-infused drink without him suspecting him since he was already drinking heavily at the time. He had no reason to suspect that his friend was trying to kill him.

Benoit Blanc accidentally gives Miles Bron the idea to shoot Andi/Helen in the dark.

At the beginning of the film, Miles wonders why Benoit is on the island because he didn’t send him a puzzle box, and the detective talks with the billionaire about the antagonistic tension between the group and Andy.

Blanc even makes a comment that the island’s isolated nature and murder-mystery party is a perfect setting for anyone with ill intent to try and kill Miles “in the dark”.

And because Miles is an idiot who’s never had an original idea in his life, he realizes this is the chance to get rid of Andi/Helen in the middle of the night.

Miles runs and hides behind a mirrored wall when the house goes into blackout mode – part of a planned murder-mystery party – but he actually got the idea from Blanc. He couldn’t even plan a murder himself.

Miles knows the entire house layout.

Even though Miles is the one who brings his friends to the island, it’s easy to rule him out as a suspect because it sure would be too easy, right? But let’s not forget that he knows the layout of the Onion Glass Labyrinth Palace, while his guests don’t.

So as everyone scrambles to get to safety during the blackout scheduled after Duke’s death, only Miles really knows where he’s going.

That’s why he can sneak Benoit and Andi/Helen into the strange mirror room that looks down the stairs.

None of the other guests would have been able to figure their way around the palace to find such a good vantage point in such a short period of time in the dark. Once Miles pulls the trigger and shoots Andi/Helen, he practically gives himself away.
