The general attitude here towards DC has been overwhelmingly negative for several years now, but that bitterness is not a good reflection of the broader fandom. I wouldn't argue that the Bourbon arc has been as well received as, say, the Vermouth arc, but my survey of other forums besides this one shows that its not as negative as DCTP might lead you to believe. The Scarlet Showdown especially is well-liked by most people I have interacted with outside of this forum.
The point I'm trying to make here is not to use the DCTP forums as a source of the general fandom's opinion towards anything; in order to develop a more accurate picture, you need to venture beyond its bounds. It's one of the best DC forums out there, to be sure, but it is not alone in its existence.

When Amuro was explaining how Akai survived the death he said that he probably been working together with the woman who shot him. Since Akai been proved to be alive, do You think that Amuro still remembers that he worked together with Kir, and so that Kir is either FBI or another spy?
Also, do You think Amuro received his codename long time ago? Or not long time ago? Before or after Scotch was killed? I am wondering about this, because Kir said that "a newly activated member called Bourbon has been dispatched". It looks like that Bourbon recently got his codename. Or that until now he didn't have any missions at all and was free to do anything he wanted. If he recently got his codename, it is quite strange that he knows that much about Vermouth (even though it seems he was close to the BO even as a child). I was wondering whether Amuro received his codename right after Scotch was killed as the one who revealed that Scotch was a spy...

Apparently Rei already has his codename by the time Sherry was still in the BO, maybe he got it even before Scotch death, we can presume this fome what Akemi has said about the Antipathy between Bourbon and Dai.
Also there is this:Spoiler:
We can assume that Akai knew Rei by his codename during their time in the BO,
Chekhov MacGuffin wrote:Despite these hypotheses, at this point, there is no firm evidence yet to differentiate between the two drugs and time frames or explain why a shrinking drug was involved in the first place. The only hint on when Mary Poppins might have been shrunk came at the end of the completely ridiculous pool case. (Seriously that case's trick was so forced.) Ran commented about remembering the unknown child from long ago around the time she met Sera. That would about 10-12 years in the past, a lower bound for HMS Queen Mary's age jettison. "That girl too, I feel like I previously [met]" (ref 905pg16) The problem is that you can validly argue Ran is conflating Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary with memories of Masumi since they look alike.
I lean towards a more recent drug point, something that happened well after Elena and Atsushi's accident. (Mary might have been involved in that but not shrunken at the time) I think shrinking was something that probably happened in the past few years, if only because Sera seems to remember her mother's assets quite clearly and was of an age that she felt self-conscious about her own. There is no compelling reason not to think that Mary was drugged after Conan was chronologically. Mary is still acting like there is a clear and present danger that requires staying out of sight and shuffling hotels constantly. All that movement gets old fast and would almost certainly have a detriment on Masumi's schooling. I assume the reason Mary hasn't contacted her son Shuukichi is because she doesn't want him involved - he might be completely under the Black Org's radar. At this point Okiya should start subletting the Kudo place.Kor wrote:Actually, if we go with the mother theory (and the notion Mary is mommy ala MG), I think the idea Ran (and maybe Shinichi) met her (as adult) in the potential flashback to come is pretty fair at this point.
Ran is reliable. If she says it, it's true.Kor wrote:We can sort of trust Ran's feelings of "I think I met this person somewhere", as she also did that with Okiya (her track record is somewhat better than Haibara at least).

How does that work genetically, though?
Sera has kanji in it. When Conan spots MG, he doesn't say anything about her not looking Japanese but comments she looks like Masumi.
On Elena's side, she was always described as a foreign woman and there was no given hint she was partly Japanese.
