The finale of season two had jumped forward in time to show the grand opening of Oliver Putnam's (Martin Short) new Broadway play. Unfortunately, the star of the show Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd) falls dead on stage. The teaser recaps the closing moments of the finale and then brings the story back to when the play is in rehearsal. Once again, the original trio of Martin, Selena Gomez, and Steve investigate a murder, this time of their leading man, Ben.

Meryl plays one of the ensemble cast members of the play, and a scatterbrained actor, as she keeps forgetting her cues on the table read. The veteran actor laughs and says, "'Oh my god, it’s me," as everyone waits for her to say her lines. The teaser also hints that Meryl could be one of the suspects in Ben's murder.
