Seems he wants to challenge me, Shin'ichi.
Just then, a diplomat's wife showed up and asked for a background check of her son's girlfriend.
At her home, we found the diplomat poisoned to death in his study! What's more, it was a locked room murder! Hattori finds evidence and figures out tricks, but my cold and the alcohol Hattori gave me caused me to collapse! But there's something not right about this fever! Something's wrong! I'm burning up! My heart feels like it's gonna burst! Well, Kudo? If you got any problems with my theory, show yourself! Better hurry before I solve it all!

Not so fast! What's the deal, Kudo? Forfeiting the match? Fine by me C'mon! Hurry! It'd take at least 5 or 6 minutes to kill the victim and pull off this trick.
The murder took place in the 30 minutes between 3:30 and 4:00.
The doctor's here! Conan-kun? His wife is in the clear, as she was with us the whole time.
Similarly, the butler is in the clear, as he spoke with neighbors the whole time at the front door, and then greeted us all.
Hey, where are you, Conan-kun? The son and girlfriend are suspicious, since they arrived before the wife and left when we arrived, but they were gone for only a minute or two.
Not enough time.
Where did Conan-kun run off to? Conan-kun! Where are you? Which leaves just the old man who arrived after 2:00 and watched TV in the next room over! I found proof in the Japanese-style room the fishing line! This is the latest and strongest type of fishing line! You're a fisherman; don't pretend to play dumb! Plus, on our way to this room, we ran into you at the stairs Please wait in the Japanese-style room.
In short, you were in the Japanese-style room after the murder.
The fact this fishing line was in the garbage is immutable proof! Conan-kun! Well?! Am I wrong?! Excuse me, but has Conan-kun been here? No Old man! Yes.
It was me I win! I was the one who killed my son Isao— Nope, I'm afraid not.
What?! You got it all wrong! Kudo! Shin'ichi Shin'ichi So this is Kudo Shin'ichi Kudo! It's It's really Shin'ichi Shin'ichi Where were you?! You suddenly disappear and then reappear! I was I was so worried! Quit cryin, dummy.
Gimme a break! She's right! You show up now and say I'm wrong? Are you suggesting my theory is faulty?! Hold on, Ran.
Eh? You're sweating It'll be over soon Shin'ichi? What's wrong with my theory, Kudo?! The trick you just explained is armchair theory.
It's 100% impossible! S-Say what?! Hold on, Kudo-kun.
I hate to interrupt, but his locked room trick works perfectly! We even tested it out with my own pants! You take a needle-ended line, tape the other end to the key holder, and put the needle end through the pants pocket from the inside.
Then you pull both ends outside the room, lock the door, and by pulling the needle end the key will enter the pocket on its own! One last tug and the line breaks free of the tape.
Then, by simply winding it up, the evidence disappears and creates a locked room! Is the key really in your pocket, Inspector Megure? I heard the key was in a double pocket in the victim's pants Y-Yes Of course it is! If you think we're lying, see for yourself! See?! It's in his double— That can't be! I'm certain I put the line through his double pocket! It was because Inspector Megure was sitting when you put the key in.
What?! Because he was sitting, the pocket folded and blocked the key's path, and the tape came off before it could get into the double pocket.
Plus the victim was heavy-set, just like Inspector Megure.
Now that you mention it, when I put my hand in the victim's pocket Damn, his pants are tight.
But it could happen 1 in 10,000— no, 1 in 10 times! The result would always be the same.
Recall the key's direction when it was in the victim's double pocket.
The key's direction? Yes.
Even if it did get in his double pocket 1 in 10,000 times, it would only be the key holder.
The key couldn't possibly flip over to join the key holder in the pocket.
The fact the key was fully inside means the killer put it in the double pocket beforehand.
Then what about this needle-ended fishing line I found?! Another trap set by the killer to place the blame on the old man.
I found a handful of others all throughout the house.
The killer planted them in other rooms, too.
So that it wouldn't matter where the old man was during the murder.
But he admitted to the crime! He simply stepped into the killer's trap, knowingly.
Though I don't know why.
This room was completely locked! You're not suggesting it was suicide?! No, it wasn't suicide.
Plus the killer's real trick is still here.
Real trick? Have you forgotten? When you discovered the victim, an opera was playing in the room and there were books stacked next to the victim.
The opera was to drown out the victim's possible screams after being poisoned with the needle.
The books were to hide his possibly-contorted face.
Yeah, right! Whose eyes and ears needed to be fooled?! Hattori Yours! Say what?! Not just you.
None of the others who came in with you noticed, either.
Wait, you don't mean—! When you entered the study, the first one to approach the victim Yes! The killer was you! Yes! The killer was you, Madam! She killed her husband?! You can't be serious! You mean the victim was still alive then? Yes.
She had only knocked him out with drugs or something.
Then she poisoned him with the needle when pretending to wake him.
But it was only natural that no one noticed.
If the sleeping drug and the poison were both powerful enough the victim would die immediately after being pricked, as if asleep.
She set up the opera and the books just in case.
But if this sleeping drug turned up in an autopsy, this trick would've No, we wouldn't know.
We assumed he was dead before we entered.
We only would've known he was knocked out before he was killed.
In other words, this was a psychological locked room murder, based on our assumption that no one would ever invite a detective to a locked room and then kill someone in it! That what you wanna say, Kudo? Yeah Then let's see some proof! Plus, I didn't see her pull out a poisoned needle! Yes.
She took out the needle in a way that no one would notice.
Together with her key! H-Her key?! Yeah.
Her key holder is of the same design as the victim's.
Naturally, hers should also split in two.
Now then, please show us your key and the inside of your key holder! If you don't mind, Madam W-What is this groove?! The poison needle was likely stored in it.
She customized it so she could pull it out right after entering the room.
In short, that very key holder is definitive proof that she is the killer! But why would she kill her husband?! If my hunch is correct, her motive is in this photograph.
This is from when she was still young Look closer, Inspector.
Doesn't she look like someone? She looks just like Yukiko-san! That's absurd! See? Only her hair is a different color! Of course she looks like me.
I'm Yukiko's mother! Eh?! What?! T-That can't be! Then you had her with your husband, Isao-san? No.
Yukiko is my daughter from my previous marriage.
Yes! She's the daughter of Kenji Yamashiro, a diplomat outcast from society by my current husband Isao Tsujimura 20 years ago! Kenji Yamashiro?! Yes, the man who died in prison 20 years ago.
Tsujimura's goal was to get rid of him, since he was a rival diplomat! And then to obtain me as his wife! My husband was arrested, and Yukiko was adopted by his family.
Having hit rock bottom mentally, I I broke up with my wife just for you.
Tsujimura cajoled me, and I wound up wife to that devilish man! I realized it all when Takayoshi-san brought home a photo of Yukiko.
At first, I thought it was just an uncanny resemblance, but Tsujimura Never! I refuse to let him be with the daughter of that man! Shocked, I continued to press him, and he started to talk about how he framed Yamashiro for corruption.
And that his father had assisted with it.
I'm sorry, Kimie-san.
I wasn't thinking straight back then I see.
You purposely took her bait to try to make up for your past There is no use in pretending to be good, Father.
Because he left this life as an innocent man who was framed.
Y-Yes? I know I'm not fit to say this now, but please take care of Yukiko.
Y-Yeah Ah.
So she was harsh with her daughter so that she wouldn't realize.
- Hey, Kudo! - Shin'ichi! Kudo! Are you OK, Shin'ichi?! Yeah, it's just my cold But how'd you know all those details about the case? You had to have been spying from nearby Get real.
That kid with the glasses told me on the phone.
You mean Conan-kun?! Yeah Said there was a weird detective from Osaka and to come right away.
S-S-So I finished up the case I was on, hopped on a train— Liar! He told me it's weird that you don't ask how I am on the phone! You were actually nearby, weren't you? I bet you were watching how worried I was and laughing! Hey, now, Ran! Why would you do that?! I'm this this Don't underestimate me, now.
I'm a detective.
I can tell plenty just from your voice.
Shin'ichi! Hold on! I'll go get the doctor! So my reasoning was wrong from the very start I lose in every which way this time.
You're good, Kudo.
Your logic's one level above mine.
Don't be dumb.
There's no winning, losing, above, or below when it comes to logic After all there's always only one truth That's true.
Guess I was so focused on our match that I lost my cool.
Hey, Kudo! Are you sure it's just a cold?! Kudo! Hey, Kudo! You alright?! Hurry, Doctor! N-Not good Hey, Kudo! My heart again! I'm burning up! It's like my bones are melting! Hey! Kudo! Don't tell me I'm turning back After I finally returned to normal! Am I turning back into that kid into Conan again?! Shin'ichi! R-Ran! You know you shouldn't be moving around! You're sick! Oh no! If I turn into Conan now, Ran will discover my identity Shin'ichi! It's just his coat! Shin'ichi! Please! Don't make me turn back! At least let me tell Ran Shin'ichi! with my real mouth and my real voice just one last thing! Shin'ichi?! From in there?! Shin'ichi! Conan-kun? Where were you?! I looked all over! And where'd you get that shirt? Oh, I was all sweaty, so I borrowed this from that room Say, have you seen Shin'ichi? Shin'ichi-niichan said he remembered a new case and Eh? He changed clothes and went out the front door.
That jerk! And he also said not to tell anyone he was involved with this case H-Hey! Conan-kun! Conan-kun?! Meikyuu no Lovers Love is burning—The rose blooming in my heart Love is burning heart ni sakaseta bara wa yami o yakitsukusu tatta hitotsu no hono'o Is the only flame I have to burn away the darkness kabe-darake no machi o game no you na meiro o This city full of walls like a labyrinth from a game pierrot no kibun de samayo'u Makes me feel like a clown wandering aimlessly Hurrying through so I don't step on shards of sadness kanashimi no kakera o fumanai-you ni surinuke We once loved each other in the future futari wa mirai ni koi shita If I solve yet another riddle tonight then kon'ya nazo o hitotsu tokiakaseba mata omae ni Hurry up! sugao ga Hurry up! modotte-kuru Hurry Up!

During that time, Heiji Hattori went back to Osaka, and thanks to my request to Ran right before I fainted, Shin'ichi Kudo's name didn't appear in the papers.
Now the men in black who shrunk me won't find out I'm alive.
But how did I turn back into my high school form? Wait a minute! As I recall, he showed up, and then And then I drank that alcohol he brought! That's it! That's gotta be it! I turned back by drinking that alcohol! Alright! There's still a lot left! One drink caused that! If I drink this all, I can turn back completely! Hey, you! What're you drinking, Conan-kun?! Just as I thought! Alcohol! You know kids aren't supposed to drink alcohol! Don't be stupid! I'm a second-year high schooler! Wait, that's still underage Hurry and change your clothes.
Huh? Your friends are here! Conan-kun! Conan! Conan-kun! Not you guys again We were so worried! You were sick for three days! You're so lucky you could skip school.
Maybe I'll catch a cold, too! You'll never catch a cold, Genta-kun! Why's that? It's like they say, "Stupid people don't catch—" It's good that you're back to normal now! Man, I'm back to how I was So why do we have to go to the library now? You're the only one who hasn't turned in a book report for class! So we figured we'd help you out! Right? - Yeah! - Yeah! Whatever.
Genta and Mitsuhiko are just sticking with Ayumi-chan But I guess I should go with 'em.
Once I drink that alcohol and turn back into a high school student, I might never get to hang out with them again NEXT EPISODE Actually, Tamada-san has been missing since two nights ago.
I-Idiot! Don't turn the lights on! That's it! I know where the body is hidden! Next Conan: The Library Murder Case Next Conan's Hint: Backwards Book Look forward to the next episode Is next time Conan's final case? The Detective Boys are indestructible!
