Vermouth was surely the woman he mentioned on the diary, anyways.
As for what it's supposed to do... Maybe it's some kind of program that, if misued, can become a great threat. But makes you wonder why would Itakura start to work on something like that on his own if he was supposed to be a CG engineer.
But I think we're getting a bit off trail again.
Regarding the boss, I still think it's a secondary character who's appeared with a full name at some point but that doesn't mean they have a defined appearance: it could be a background character name mentioned at some point.
The email sent to Vermouth looked like something a man would write (from Japanese text analysis) but it could be a woman posing as a man. Yet a man gives off more the vibe of someone who'd be able to keep a man like Gin under control, in my opinion, and to the point Gin always calls him/her "that person". Vermouth is the only one who says "boss".
So she being the boss' wife/daugther sounds likely.
I can recall that before the Miyanos disapparead they visited Atsushi´s father to ask for something. What was that¿?
Who could be Atsuhi´s father¿? Maybe the boss¿? That would make Elena daughter in law and Haibara granddaugther.
But I don´t think Vermouth is linked to the boss being a mere daughter in law , or maybe yes, and they are trying to bring up to life Atsushi Miyano because both of them love him.
Yes, that sms and some vibes could lead us to Vermouth as the boss daughter. She is just like the typical insurgent daughter. If Vermouth would be his wife I don´t think he would gave her that freedom, and I think it is easier for someone to get rid of his own wife rather that his own child. Furthermore, maybe she reminds him to his death wife and all this stuff has something to do to bring her back to life. Something that bothers Vermouth. If Vermouth is the boss daughter that could mean that anokata is british (yes, I just can´t stand them to be americans).That reduces drastically the number of characters that could be the boss. DC is a total tribute to Sherlock Holmes/Agata Christie stories and that has to make some important characters necesarily british.
Bourbon is also an important character because he knows what links Vermouth to the boss. As I said before I think it´s because he knew Elena and he found out that Vermouth and Elena are the same person, assuming that it´s easier to discover all the mistery behind.
The Akemi=Elena theory is also plausible but Haibara would have known. And as Vermouth=Elena and why that Shiho hatred maybe because somehow Vermouth/Elena blames her own daughter for the death of his older sister Akemi, after all , Akemi didn´t have a rank coded name inside the organization, Ai did...she worked in a project and her mother just told her not to do it, maybe too late through that tapes byt anyway... I can´t understand why Vermouth loves so much Ran/Angel, yes, it´s true that her saved her life but it has to be something more behind this mistery. Also, it´s curious how Ai resembled Ran as Akemi, maybe Vermouth did the same in that scene in the docks.
We don´t know really much about Ai and her time in the BO, so we can´t understand why Vermouth hates her that much, assuming she is Elena of course...it´s not that strange that a mother could have that hatred towards her own child, the tapes were recorded long ago, as a way to change future and don´t mess things.
When we find out who Vermouth really is I think all the pieces will gather together. How the Miyanos and the Akai are linked, and how they are linked to anokata too, that´s for sure. Rum is an important part of the plot right now but I think it´s the person that could lead us to understand better how the BO works internally, if there are BO members infiltrated in the police, etc...I might be wrong and Rum is strongly linked to the Akai for example, but I think he is a mere big fish as a prelude to the anokata-miyano arc...
