To me it looked like he was expressing how silly it was for him to lose his cool the moment he realized something didn't add up to his expectations. I think it just added a bit to his character and portrayed a human side through that bit. He simply dismissed it as irrational behavior and it didn't matter if he was close to open Conan's locker or the locker beside it, he was already sure.Misztina wrote:Yeah, I know that it should have ended like Gin killing him there, but he didn't and that is very... intriguing. I mean, he basicly said "Silly me, no adult could fit in here" and went home. And yeah, what if the kid was a dwarf mistaken as kid? Gin, Gin... you lack fantasy.DCUniverseAficionado wrote: But he didn't follow up on these suspicions of his. By stopping short, and not opening that locker all the way, Shinichi/Conan escaped that situation alive, and will—eventually—destroy the Organization, because Gin walked away when victory was within his grasp.
And here's something else—an adult with dwarfism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwarfism) could've fit in the locker. Gin should've thought of that, if he thought that the "sly fox" was hiding in those small lockers.
But if he didn't think there was anyone in the last locker, why didn't he open it to be sure? I just can't see how Gin can be like this, it is a bit out of character for me. Unless, he has reasons. Or he just made a mistake.
Then again, I could be dead wrong, so...
Now we could go on and speculate that maybe he had an inkling that there could've been a child in there, but decided to not look anymore desperate in front of Vodka but that's just pure speculations. We can however expect that Gin might link his knowledge of a kid entering the station with future development, so there's that.
