It means that Scotch got killed before the BO could figure out his real name. He was probably using an alias like the other BO infiltrators. :P

What I want/expect to see after this chapter. Of course, it may not take just few chapters, but much more, though I hope, we're not going to wait years to get some answers.

First thing: Jodie getting suspicious about the Shin-Conan-kun thing. She's doing her investigation and discover the truth about Conan being Shinichi. She may do the investigation with someone else.

Second: How BO discovered that Scotch was the spy and how he was killed. I will stick with the theory that Akai killed him to prove himself to be loyal and maybe even he was the one, who reveal that Scotch was the spy, which wouldn't be surprising. I'm also interested why Rei had the blood on himself as well. Were they both ordered to kill Scotch? Or maybe just Akai killed him and Rei took care of the body, so that why he also had the blood on himself.

Third: Gin investigation about BO being infiltrating. I'm worry about Kir. When, she warned Jodie about Bourbon, she managed to call her, but in Rum's case; she only managed to send message plus it was only alcohol name, RUM. IMO if Gin wants to succeed in making sure that there's no spy in BO, he should suspect everyone including Vodka. I also wonder why now? The last spy that BO discovered was Akai, which was two years ago, so shouldn't he to check, then if BO had some more spies? Well, he probably did, but for me it seems that Gin just now woke up and realized that BO has/had too many spies and he needs to do something about it or maybe it was boss' order.

I love Jodie's and Camel's reactions about Akai being able to cook and that he plays with kids. I think that spending time with DB, may remind Akai of his time with Masumi, when she was in their age. Akai was like 20 years old, when Masumi was 7, so he had to play with her, I guess.

Fourth: Vermouth's secret. I will stick with the theory that she's boss' relative. It could be by blood or as it was mentioned before, she could be adopted. I was thinking and it's rather unlikely for Vermouth to be daughter/sister, because then she should be half Japanese. We don't know Boss' origin, but I don't want to believe it that the boss is not half Japanese, at least. However, if Vermouth would be boss' daughter, then she should have some Asian appearance, even if her other parent was American. The same case was with Shiho and Agasa's lover. They both had Japanese and British/American appearance so Vermouth also should have Japanese look, even if only one of her parent is Japanese or half-Japanese.

She could be boss mother, but as it was mentioned, the way boss wrote the message to her, doesn't implicate that Vermouth as a mother is superior to boss. The other thing is that Vermouth stopped aging at 29 years old (I think that it's her physical age) then if boss is her son/daughter, then boss should be like 9 years old maybe little older, when Vermouth stopped aging. There are two possibilities either boss also stopped aging and he stuck in the body of a child and when he got older and realized that he/she doesn't age, so together with Vermouth started BO to find the antidote and being the boss is actually easier for boss, because he/she can sit in his/her room and giving away the orders through text or maybe he ages normally and only Vermouth stopped aging.

I'm rather pessimistic about Vermouth being the boss' mother. It's rather weird for mother to go against her own child, but then on the other hand, Vermouth may think that BO's defeat would be actually good for her son/daughter considering what it did to him/her, especially if boss stuck in child's body.

Vermouth being boss' wife; it was mentioned that Boss wouldn't allow his own wife to sleep with other men, but maybe he doesn't know. I mean, who could tell him Gin, Vermouth? Well Chianti could tell on Vermouth, we know how much, she hates Vermouth or maybe boss knows, but he doesn't care since he's more interested in meeting BO's goal.

Boss being Vermouth's childhool friend: I will be alright with this as long the boss is a person, who we know and will be very shocking as boss and plausible. It would be weird for me if the boss would turn out to be, for example, Yamamura, though.

Fifth: How Rei found out about Vermouth's secret and how he arranged for Vermouth's secret to leak out for the rest of BO. I also want to see more scenes between him and Conan and Rei finding out about Conan's true identity.

And last: Rum, who is he/she and what is his/her mission. I think Rum is a man and as I mentioned before I doubt that Rum is another spy. It would be unlikely, because he's close to the boss, so he most likely knows who the boss is. I also hope that he's completely on BO's side and it's not the same case as Vermouth.

At first, I thought that Rum mission is to make sure that BO has no more rats, but it's Gin's task, though maybe Rum is going to help him. I really hope that we will know right away who Rum is rather than having three suspects and guessing who Rum is.

It's tomorrow? I totally forgot, I also hope that there would be something interesting, but I feel it would be another one of those non-related plot cases, though maybe during this case, we will get some more info about Rum or something else related to the plot.

I think that Rum is going to appear at the end of the next confrontation. Just like Vermouth or Kir.
I also doubt that there will be anything at file 900, I think it needs more file to prepare the next confrontation. So there will be something around file 910. But the editors mentioned that 'a black ripple stains the scarlet' so we don't know...

I'm pretty sure Rei found out from being around the Miyano family when he was younger. I don't any reason Gosho had to make him have a connection to the Miyanos otherwise. :P

For the next file I'm expecting Sera appearance,talking about her dead brother,and maybe having a confrontation with Ai.
Also we should get information about the Elena/Amuro relationship,because Gosho mentionned that in his latest interview.

concerning the current file,I also love how Akai is friendly with children,seems like he's getting used at his new life as Okiya ^^

It's a shame this topic will be dying out soon in favor of the next one. 81 pages of discussion! Surely we've not had that for one series before.

I picked the perfect time to become a DC fan, I think!
My DC Fanfic: Awaking and Arising - Shiromi writes her version of the end of the series. With 100% more lesbians and immortal zombie boys. And existential crises. Lots of them.
Kogorou - A character study that seeks to answer the question: Why is Kogorou the way he is?
A Kindred Spirit - Sonoko and Makoto realize that they have more in common than previously realized.

I'm predicting that the next case would be either Shuukichi's shogi case or Chiba's love story case. I would prefer the Shuukichi's case or we gonna get DB's case, but at least we will see Okiya (I hope) and Ai; maybe they're going to have scenes together. That would be cool.

DB case is almost assured.
