(Again with his assassin-like behavior)


are you sure those aren't just super butler powers?
all this really adds is that once again, someone could not sense his presence


He seems pretty active outside his house for a butler.....Wouldn't a butler be normally inside the house they work in? Odd he keeps ending up around Conan

Especially when he is not close to Momiji. I get if he was out and Momiji was always with him but there has been moments its him alone.

Anyway i'm waiting for us to see another appearance of Wakita

That hinted confrontation between Wakita and Bourbon... that's what I'm waiting for.

Rei/Toru/Bourbon played a big role in the cases that preceded the last two big cases (before Mystery Train and before Scarlet Showdown)—maybe he'll play a big role in the case before the one that'll include File 1000, and make it 3 for 3.

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.

Well, since File 1000 might be a ShinRan romance case, the pattern wouldn't hold, but I definitely believe that it's due time for a Wakita/Bourbon appearance(Since we just now got a follow up to Iori/Momiji since File 981-983, so it should follow up with the other components of that case, Bourbon and Iroha restaurant).

Oh, there's little doubt that's going to play a role in File 1000 case. Question is, is it going to be solely that (or even mainly)? Even so, there may be something(s) in the background. And then there's how many files that case will comprise.

If Shinichi's coming back, will it involve the BO? Or will it be a Desperate Revival/Shinigami/London situation? Or even both?

Hopefully Heiji will appear in the file as he deserves it for being such a big part of the series.
Anyway I'm for damn sure not going to spoil it for myself.

Well, it is File 1000. Might as well throw in as many players as you can.

That could be troublesome since Shinichi is supposed to be dead and if the BO sniffed out that he was alive and this time it's not some prank (like Heiji in the off-season Halloween case) they could move on to finish him off, even.

Unless he manages to do something without them noticing.

He's already managed to do that three times, already—unless this case winds up being the end of the Rum arc, and the following arc is all about building up to the series finale (making it the final arc of DC), I can't see the BO learning enough to try and take action against him through people like Ran. Unless we're getting a paradigm shift instead of the beginning of the end of DC—like if, after the case that will feature File 1000, Shinichi/Conan would no longer be living with Ran and Kogoro at the Mouri Detective Agency. Or we could even get both a paradigm shift and the beginning of the end of DC. But we could also get neither one of those, too.
