Rum's primary target is neither Sherry.
Rum knows that Sherry was killed in the blast.
Amuro saw his gadget not Rumi, DB told Rumi about his gadgets, but again Conan himself had outlined that unless you know the effect of shrinking, it is not possible to make the deduction.
Heiji and Eisuke was lucky because Conan slipped up big-time.
He has shown no slip up regards to Rumi.
Yep, he screwed up... in far less high-stakes situations.
"No one will ever make the logical leap that people can shrink unless they already knew that APTX can shrink people..." I don't buy that. All that's needed is somewhat frequent exposure to Shinichi/Conan and/or Shiho/Ai, and at least some knowledge of Shinichi Kudō and Shiho Miyano/Sherry—the former applies to Rumi, and the latter should certainly apply to Rum. Whether Shinichi/Conan personally showed Rumi the gadgets or was told about them, she knows about them, either way—yet another piece of intel on him. As for APTX—Rum should know about the incomplete detective... and I doubt that Rum wouldn't have at least some notion of the boss' goal. Now that Rum is questioning whether it does what it's supposed to do or not, I'd say Rum would be more in a position now than anyone to make the logical leap. As far as I'm concerned, if Rum is Rumi, then she should already know who they are—since she's not acting to take them out, I assume she's not Rum.
I'm not opposed at all to Kanenori ≠ Rum proposals—I just wonder if Rumi turns out to be Rum, if Gosho's simply going to reveal to us that despite Rum's proximity and intelligence, she couldn't figure Shinichi/Conan and Shiho/Ai out... in any case, I've never been more eager to find out just who Rum is. Even if I just don't expect Rumi to be Rum, I think I'd still be hyped for that turning out to be the case. Just gotta wait for that big confrontation case...
“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.”
