Can't be disappointed if you never expected much to begin with
Seriously though, for your own sanity it'd be best not to overthink Aoyama
So let me make sure I have this right—you (no longer—assuming you once did) have zero positive expectations when it comes to Gosho Aoyama as a creator of compelling mysteries...? Do I have that right? If not—if my assessment has missed the mark—then by all means correct me.
In other words, "I can no longer be disappointed by this creator, for they have already disappointed me enough."
Well, at least you can say you warned me about that.

Let me put it another way—in terms of "rating" disappointment—which produced a stronger, more potent reaction from you... Bourbon being a NOC, or Renya Karasuma being the boss? Differences in context around these reveals aside, whichever one got the stronger, more potent, reaction rates higher, on the "Gosho disappointment scale."
I hope that clarified what I meant, and my apologies for not making it clear, initially.
By the way, how long have you and Yuri been in the "can't be disappointed by DC if I have no expectations of it" state?
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
