Summary of spoiler pics:

NO BREAK NEXT WEEK

Spoiler:
. File 978: Wakasa - sensei's home

. Rumi and Kobayashi have brough the 1-A class to Rumi's apartment building to do a play of "Ikkyuu - san"

. We see a couple characters (Banno Teigo, 32, Pro golfer & Iiyama Kurumi, 29, profession text is cut off), Banno is a resident of the apartment building
. Banno seems to have had a successful golf carrer for some years in the US and is going to live there
. Iiyama seems to be a girlfriend he hung around with for a time, she thought Banno called him to part with her while it'd actually seem he wanted to invite her to come to the US with him
. Banno says something (text is cut off) and when she asks what he said he shrugs it off
. Rumi seems to guess what'll happen next with those two given her expression

. Conan tells Haibara that when he was a kid he also had to play the role of "Ikkyuu - san" and Yukiko was persitent on him properly training for the role with Yuusaku looking on and making suggestions: Shinichi wasn't motivated but Yukiko insisted saying that if Shinichi doesn't do it right she'll be put to shame

. At some point Rumi accidentally (or purposely) stains a tiger's foldable screen which was the background for the play with paint or some other liquid

. For some reason the group then enter another room where they find a Banno KO and Iiyama dead

. Banno is awakened and shows them a photo showing a woman's hand writing something on his face

. The side-note teases about Rumi doing something next file
"I shall revive again, again AND AGAIN!"

Lol, Conan knows that Mary is Akai's mother and maybe a victim of (original) APTX4869 and there is a Rum suspect out there, still looks like nothing happened. I don't hope that Conan will tell Ai that Asaka and Rum is related but it would be nice that there will be discussion with Akai or Ai after the previous 2 cases but the I-keep-all-secrets-for-myself behavior of Conan is more and more annoying lately. At least, we got Rumi.

Mh, Conan doesn't consider Kanenori a Rum suspect though.

Akai is not willing to talk about his family as he made clear in 949, though Conan could talk to Ai at least, but he wasn't very prone to share information about the Akai family with her to begin with, so I'm not surprised.

Yeah, but at least he should talk to Ai about Rum; and Mari who is a APTX victim may be mentioned as Masumi's mother. Another APTX victim and Haibara doesn't know anything. WTH. Maybe Ai has some important information about Mari and there are benefits of sharing information for both of them (at least more pros than cons). However he choose not to do it, and do a play as nothing happened.

I'm liking this case from what we have. Rumi + Shinichi's parents + Conan having to wear a ridiculous costume for the play. :P

It really saddens me to see people continuing to talk about this series as if its dying or that they are losing interest in it. This has been one of my favorite series' since I first heard of it in 2005 and I have never looked back. I really hope that I can find someway to contribute to the community even if it's just random crack theories and looking things up for people who can't find the information they need.

Calling it (my predictions are usually wrong but whatever): it's gonna be revealed that Yukiko and Rumi know each other.

Spoiler:
My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

Warning..!! Text Spoilers for file 978

Spoiler:
FILE978 若狭先生の自宅

とある高層マンション(※)
プロゴルファーが交際していたモデルと別れようと、殺害をもくろむ
その直前のやり取りを、メガネの女が目撃

そのころ小学校では
コナンがお芝居「一休さん」の一休役をすることになる
まるで本物のように上手いと褒められるが、コナンは新一時代にも演じていた
その時両親に徹底した演技指導を受けたのが今なお抜けずにいる
屏風の虎は若狭先生が描いた力作だが、自らのドジで水ぶっかけてしまい真っ黒に
描き直そうにも元のトラの写真は自宅にある
ちょうどいい大きさになるか不安だというので
コナンたち探偵団も若狭先生の自宅へ

若狭先生の自宅は(※)
隣の部屋の玄関でモデルが呼び鈴を押すが誰も出ず
ドアも鍵がかかってるので舌打ちを残し去っていく
……のをコナンたちが目にする
若狭先生は隣人のことはよく知らないとか

虎の絵も無事描き終わり、探偵団はオムライスをごちそうになる
すると隣の部屋から大きな音がする
隣人は目覚まし代わりに、大音量で音楽を鳴らしているそうで
普段なら割とすぐ止むはずが今日は止まない
文句言ってくる、と元太が隣の家に行くとドアは開いていた
そのまま家に上がり込み、ステレオセットの電源プラグを抜くと
ゴルファーとモデルが倒れている
ゴルファーはすぐに目を覚まして身を起こすがモデルは頭を割られ死んでいる
コナンはすぐ若狭先生に通報を頼む
灰原はゴルファーの右頬に「愛してる(はぁと)」と書かれてるのを見つけ
スマホを鏡代わりにして教えると
ゴルファーがこの字はモデルの字じゃないと言い、股座にチェキが落ちてるのに気づく
玄関先で彼を気絶させたという女の手が、ゴルファーの顔に書いているところが写ってる
■写真に残された犯人の痕跡―――次号、若狭先生が…!?

Translation of the text spoilers for File 978:

NO BREAK NEXT WEEK

Spoiler:
File 978: Wakasa - sensei's home

At a hi-rise apartment building somewhere (*)

A pro golfer is parting ways with a model he used to hang around with: and a woman wearing glasses witnesses the exchange before a murder is plotted

Meanwhile, at the elementary school, Conan has been chosen to play "Ikkyuu" in the "Ikkyuu - san" play

The students praise Conan for his good performance and he admits about having had to act the role before, as Shinichi

Both of his parents had thoroughly given him acting guidance hence why he could play the role so well

The background tiger has been drawn by Wakasa yet she accidentally tosses water at it and gets black: she wants to redraw it but the photo she used as basis is at her home: she's unsure if she could make it of a decent size so Conan & the DBs go to her home

At her home (*)... The model is at the entrance of the room next door and pressing the bell yet no - one comes out: the door is locked too so she fumes and leaves while seen by Conan & co. Wakasa shrugs saying she doesn't know her neighbor too much

Wakasa manages to redraw the tiger and the DBs are eating a rice omelette when a sound rings out from the room next door: it'd seem the man has the habit of setting music to ring out at a loud volume instead of an alarm clock: it normally stops playing after a lil while but today it's not stopping

Genta goes to complain and finds the door unlocked: he enters and unplugs the stereo's plug before he finds the golfer and the model there, on the floor

The golfer soon wakes up and shakes the model to wake her up but she's dead: someone broke her skull

Conan asks Wakasa to call the police: Haibara sees that someone wrote "I love you (heart mark)" in the golfer's right cheek

The golfer uses the smartphone as a mirror to tell them what it is: he says it's not the model's writing. He then notices an instax (polaroid) on the space between his legs

The photo shows a woman's hand that knocked him out at the entrance and is writing on his right cheek

Side - note: "The traces of the culprit shown in the photo... In the next number, Wakasta - sensei will...!?"

You wrote about Wakita-sensei instead of Wakasa-sensei. As if being possessed by a Wakita in the darkness.
