Dickie: Only Murders in the Building season 3 character explained

Dickie is Ben Glenroy’s brother who later becomes a prime suspect in his murder. Jeremy Shamos plays the character.

When Ben first introduces Dickie, he comes across as very timid and soft-spoken. He tends to Ben’s every whim and is always by his side.

After Ben’s death, Dickie takes on Loretta as a client and thanks to his connections in the industry, he gets Loretta a role on television, although she chooses to do Oliver’s musical instead.

Theo tells Mabel that Dickie is the best person to question regarding Ben because they spent practically all of their time together. Mabel learns a lot about the dynamic between Dickie and Ben, but she also discovers some damning information.

The jealous sibling

Dickie initially calls Mabel a leech trying to profit off of Ben’s death when she asks him a few questions but he calms down later and tells her all about how Ben always screwed things up and it was left to him to clean up after.

He tells the story of how he was adopted by his parents when they believed they couldn’t have a child, and then Ben was born. He got all the attention while Dickie remained in the background, doing the hard work.

Theo points out a clue from an early drawing of CoBro, which has Dickie’s name on it, suggesting that it was Dickie who originally came up with the idea. That is what puts his name at the top of the list of Mabel’s suspects.

He is also seen holding on to the bloody handkerchief that was with Ben during his death, after Uma sold it to him in the silent auction. Loretta is later revealed to be his mother, but she doesn’t get the chance to tell him yet.
