“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.”

Spoiler:
Worth noting: before Rumi stares shadily to the ground and clutches her pocket in anger, the basketball club manager talks about his right eye being artificial, due to an accident with one of the other case characters during a basketball game.
Image
So yeah, that apparantly triggers Rumi. And also, I believe this is the first time we see actually how Gosho draws an artificial eye.

Spoiler:
WOW, combo! Kuroda and Rumi! I'm surprised that we start so early (13 before 1000) with the plot. :D

I'm interested in the thing Rumi is grabbing. Looks like a pen to me, or at least cylindrical. I'm betting that it is a memento from whoever she is related to: Scotch, Haneda, Amanda... I might be wrong, but, I'll wait.

And also, it is said where are they camping? Just to know which inspector will appear in the next file. ^^

@Serinox:
Spoiler:
Little correction: his eye was damaged but it survived, what he's saying is that they were about to replace his eye with an artificial eye.

But that doesn't change that Rumi seems to have reacted to the word.

The characters are part of a basketball club and it'd seem that the dark-skinned man was inside of his tent when it began to burn.

And Kuroda pops out of a tent saying he had earplugs on and fell asleep but nevertheless he said he would call for the police: he suddenly asks Rumi if she doesn't have any objection to it.

Spoiler:
Yeah, I just talked with Yunnie as well. Tbh, that confuses me, since it looked so differently, even compared to Gosho usually drawing injured eyes. Weird.

Also, aren't those just earplugs? What Kuroda is holding doesn't look like headphones.

Huh. Usually, Kuroda has his right eye closed, like Kansuke has, so we always assumed that he has nothing there. But now we get this shot in 987. Is this supposed to be an artificial eye? Would be kind of weird, since they are supposed to look real, with a pupil and all; also he wears half-shaded glasses. Is it supposed to be merely a placeholder for health reasons under there? Or is there just nothing under his lids, but Gosho couldn’t draw that more graphically?

Image
Hmm, so Kuroda is reading about the Koji Haneda case online at the beginning of 987. Is the information back online? Or did he make screenshots of it before it went down? Also: first time we actually see Koji Haneda’s corpse.

Interesting stuff. Also, Kuroda was apparantly secretly watching the group from his tent during Haibara's BO aura moment, so maybe it is really him who triggered Haibara and Rumi just got angry. But why didn't Haibara feel his gaze and/or presence sooner? Or did he also tense up like Rumi when the term artificial eye is mentioned by Danno?

Spoiler:
My dog has the right eye socket empty after having the right eye removed in a surgery and the eyelid is always closed. After the operation it had some sutures to keep it almost closed and after a few months they got removed. The eye now is always closed except for a small hole needed to excrete some fluid from time to time. I think Kuroda has his original, damaged, eye.

Spoiler:
Yes normally they are always closed if there is nothing there. So chances are that Kuroda has a "blind/damaged" eye.

Well, Kuroda's eye was "believed to" be a prosthetic as Yui said back when Kanawajima but no - one knew for certain if it was or not.

So it wouldn't be surprising if he actually doesn't have one.

Spoiler:
Maybe they believe that because he can still see something? Maybe that's why the other lense is darker colored ( the eye hurts more if its open in a bright place or the passing light can't be bright).

@etuputri:
Spoiler:
Agreed. It's possible that Kuroda is interested in Rumi for some reason (he got interested in Shiratori's talk when he brought up her name) and decided to come to check on her.

The mention of a "fake eye / prosthetic" seems to hint to RUM but we've yet to see how will things turn out.

As for the murder, I think that the trick maybe in some flammable material brought into the tent disguised as food. Or maybe the tall man was already dead and the shadow was a set up to make it look like he was alive.

The glasses man has a strong motive for the killing and is the last one to enter the tent before the fire begins yet he could be a red herring.
