I caught up, finally. I watched every episode.
Eps. 946-947: Eh, could have been a cool case, but it was rather boring. Not to mention that the ending was extremely disappointing. The (now) mentally ill woman stabbed the actress, then the actress instead of seeking help committed suicide... over a fake piece of jewelry. I've been interested in Japanese culture for a long time, but I still can't understand their suicide logic... What was disappointing is that the mentally ill woman never learned the truth and continued to lived in her imaginary world. Quite a weak, boring and disappointing case. Not the worst, though.
Eps. 969-970: This case was better, but I expected more from a Mystery Tour case. Kogoro getting hit by a money bag twice was quite funny.
The plot was a bit confusing, but later it started to make sense. I feel a bit bad for the old man, though. He was desperate to receive his pay and only "kidnapped" himself to get it. Later, he almost got killed by his apprentice. In the Conan world I wish he didn't get a harsh sentence. The method Conan used with the special liquid to make footprints appear was cool and more advanced than the case itself. The ending was funny, hahaha. As a AO case, it was okay. As a Mystery Tour, quite bad.
And now, 4 episode of awesome! Can't wait for the manga cases!
