Actually, a bunch of people in the cbox think this might as well just be the case, so some people do take this theory seriously I think.
Really? I just pulled it out of my ass a few minutes ago. I thought it was as silly as my Sonoko=Sono Ko theory.
I think some of the reasoning behind it is that if it isn't three people, then we might be facing disguises once again, and no one wants that. The other part is because it's constantly written as RUM (so far it's the only member to be written in capitalized English letters), which seems to indicate there's something going on with that.
What really doesn't work for me with the Rum is multiple people theory is that it'd be strange for several people at once to be the Number 2, so maybe it's somewhat like Haibara says, and there are a bunch of people who stand in for Rum in the organization, while the actual Rum doesn't tend to appear often before people.
We'll see what's that last detail Haibara will probably mention in the third file of the case. Then we'll have something extra to hold on for theories.
