The question is "Wakita" was being set up by "gin" to investigate Kogoro, much later in the story. If Wakita is moving under the orders of Gin, then that shushi guy was the previous one who got substituted by Wakita.

I can see that being the case (one of Gosho's classic easter eggs) more than that being Wakita, since he doesn't look like him whatsover.

I think rumi wakasa is RUM because her name is strange you know....
First its rumi and if you read first three letter then they are RUM......
Second in wakasa if you skip W and read her name backward direction it is ASAKA...
And in haneda koji's murder case it was revealed that amanda's bodyguard might be her killer and later in soul detective murder case it was revealed that she was a girl so after adding everything it could only be her.........
Although it is not confirmed yet....so we will see in upcoming episode's right now its only a theory.........

So are you saying the dying message was "ASACA RUM"? because if so... then you are basically saying that Yusaku's and Subaru's deduction that it's actually "CARASUMA"(File 1008) is wrong.

Why is Rumi involving herself with DB then? Why hasn't she recognized or done something to Sherry? Why is going with a name that indicates her involvement in the Kohji case that she(if Rum) would want to keep hidden?

To be honest we have no proof/hint that "U MASCARA" was Kohji's doing. The shear complexity considering the back-casing of the mirror, the required time, Kohji's condition(fleeing from Rum and was injured), no confirmation on whether the bathroom door was locked or not, no confirmation that Kohji's finger print was found on the tap or not, seems to suggest a foul-play. Maybe a third party who came to retrieve "the stuff" from Kohji's hand did this. Maybe this guy/girl is a BO agent but was related to Kohji. Had no idea who was the victim before coming into the room. Seeing a dead Kohji gave out the message Karasuma to indicate investigators to look into Karasuma group. Also another effect would be tarnish Rum's reputation. Maybe the boss would think Rum is a utter bull crap and kill him. As BO kills people for failures. But Boss had some soft corner for Rum and Rum was let off the hook.

Holy moly this old af account still works haha. Interest in DC reignited. Rum Arc is already proving to be more interesting (and faster, pace-wise) than the what - 7 year Bourbon Arc (?).

With the new case tying up the Chiba/Naeko pair (plus ShinRan being canon in Kyoto), it seems like other than Kogoro/Eri and Heiji/Kazuha, most of the romance subplots are more or less done. I do kind of want to see the Yamato/Uehara pair again though, since Nagano cases are always a treat (their last case was Kawanakajima). But with Kuroda being in Tokyo now, I doubt we'll see the Nagano cops anytime soon. Though they can always just set a case there so the readers can find out more about Kuroda's backstory.

Speaking of which, at the end of the last case, was Conan holding onto Miike's phone after the case? Wouldn't that mean there's a chance that Naeko might be semi-important (?). She is shown to have two phones for whatever reason and the main character holds onto it after the case. I did see a post on the Chinese forum saying (as a crack theory) that she might be Scotch's sister. No basis whatsoever, but I think it would be a nice way to tie the "day-to-day case" characters (the cops, Ran and Kogoro mostly) with the Black Org related characters for the inevitable showdown.

Interesting point.

Kinda means that Naeko will appear again for whatever reason.
The only thing (atleast what comes into my mind at this point) which makes sense storywise is that
especially Naeko will have a number/contact/message of a certain person on her phone which is somehow relevant to the plot.

Damn... I have no idea who this might be. ::)
[ ] Yonehara = Rum
[ ] Kuroda = Amuros Boss
[x] MG = Mrs. Akai
[x] Haneda = Brother Akai
[ ] Rumi = Asaka
[ ] Wakita = Bo-Member Whiskey (aka the RAT)
[ ] Iori = just a butler

Arc might have been inspired by the The Third Shadow Ninja a jidaigeki film about a Lord, two body doubles & his third body double with one eye missing.

Or he simply gave it back off-screen and the point of that scene was to update us on Yumi's situation.
