|The Adventure of the Unspeakable Story
|Barok van Zieks|
|That incident two months ago... was quite the interesting one. To think I would once again meet the people connected to that trial once more like this...|
Episode 5: The Adventure of the Unspeakable Story is the fifth and final episode of the game Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken and follows Ryūnosuke Naruhodō's fourth appearance in the British court. It has been two months since Ryūnosuke and Susato Mikotoba arrived in London, and both are living in Holmes' Attic. While there, he becomes acquainted with Hatch Windibank and once again meets Gina Lestrade.
Introduction[edit | edit source]
|"It's coming!" Holmes' cry pierced through the thick wall of fog around us. Wisps of vapor flowed over the pistol as I cocked it, and I waited breathlessly in the stillness. The silences lasted for what seemed an eternity until, at last, it appeared. From the shadows of the cloud, an enormous beast sprang out upon us. A hound it was, but not such a hound as any mortal had ever seen. It eyes glowed with a smoldering glare and the whole of its ox-sized body was outlined in white hot flames. Its panting caused the ground to quake and its hideous howl -- so terrified was I that I began to tremble with fear. "Look well, Watson!" Holmes declared gasping upon the mystical beast. "For this! This is the diabolical Hound of the Baskervilles!"|
Watson's voice is once again heard, this time narrating a section from the "Hound of the Baskervilles" story. However, it has little to do with the actual case, as it is only mentioned in passing.
Investigation, Part 1[edit | edit source]
Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and Susato Mikotoba start by reflecting on their two months in London. They managed to win two trials and haven't gotten any clients since. They then go downstairs to check on Sherlock Holmes, who is trying to play the violin. He seems depressed, claiming that he "doesn't seem to be getting it". Then, Iris shows off her newest invention, the "kitty door", which she demonstrates by having Wagahai come through the front door. Iris has also made breakfast for everyone, though Holmes continues to act depressed. When Naruhodō notices that Holmes' desk is empty, Iris reveals that omnipotent analysis scope is at the pawn shop of someone named Hatch. Naruhodō and Susato can't believe Holmes pawned off such unique equipment, but Holmes says the pawn shop's are like banks in London, so he will have no problem getting the machine back.
Wagahai then scratches Holmes' violin very badly. He doesn't seem to mind and continues to act depressed. Susato and Iris note that the violin looks different than usual, the wood is a different color, and there's another hole in the instrument. They correctly deduce that the instrument isn't a violin - it's a viola! Holmes is extremely mad about this, claiming that Hatch must have made a mistake. Susato notes that this contradicts what Holmes said minutes ago, but Holmes ignores her and rushes the four of them to the pawn shop.
Hatch's pawn shop is filled with all sorts of miscellaneous items. Hatch Windibank, the owner, comes in from behind the counter. When Holmes tells him about the mistake regarding the viola, Hatch suddenly deems himself unworthy, grabs a gun, and threatens to kill himself! After Holmes stops him, Hatch mentions that Holmes once entrusted him with an unpublished manuscript. He then confirms that pawn shops are like banks to the townspeople: the people put items in pawn shops and take them out within two months, paying the necessary interest. The items on the shelf have not been picked up in two months and are on sale. Naruhodō then notices a special device that looks like a camera merged with a clock. Holmes says that it's one of his inventions, the "surveillance camera". It takes picture of the shop every half hour. After all this discussion, Holmes finally gets his violin back and Hatch says the suicide thing happens all the time and he'll be fine. Susato Mikotoba checks the various items up for sale: a stereoscope, various clocks, and a music box. She also notes the calendar in the room.
Gina Lestrade, from Cosney Megundal's trial, then enters the shop. She is seemingly talking to Hatch, who is holding some sort of disc that Lestrade took out of a coat that she just withdrew from the shop. It was made for a music box but it doesn't seem to play any music. Lestrade desperately wants to sell it for some reason, but Hatch refuses. According to Hatch, she's always been delivering unusual goods to his shop.
Suddenly, a young gentleman in white clothes arrives, claiming to with business with Hatch Windibank. He introduces himself to Naruhodō and Susato as Egg Benedict. He says that the article Gina Lestrade withdrew is his, he demands the coat and disc. Lestrade claims the gentleman is lying but the gentleman says the pickpocket robbed him. To resolve the dispute, Hatch has the gentleman name the password that was put on the items originally: PROFESSOR. Egg Benedict names this password correctly, so Hatch sides with him. Reluctantly, Lestrade gives the coat and disc to the gentleman. Benedict claims there is another item that Lestrade is hiding, but she attacks him, making him bleed a bit onto the disc. Gina then grabs the disc and gives it to Naruhodō. With neither Lestrade nor Benedict giving in, Sherlock Holmes decides this situation calls for Joint Reasoning.
Holmes' two topics this time are Benedict's motive and crime. Once again, the suspect in this case, Benedict, goes pale. Holmes notices that Benedict's cane looks like a shovel without a blade, so he concludes that Egg Benedict was intending to dig under the shop. As for the motive, Benedict line of sight indicates a letter regarding underground water pipes, so Holmes claims that Benedict plans an underground bank heist. He's not done yet, however. He points to a postcard of the London World's Fair which is near completion. The funds are being protected in the bank nearby, so Sherlock Holmes concludes that Egg Benedict was to plunder the World's Fair funds. Naruhodō is not impressed, especially after Holmes notes that he just spoiled Scotland Yard secrets. With that, he begins his examination of Holmes' deductions.
On the back of the Help Wanted poster are scribbles describing Gina Lestrade's appearance and a withdrawal deadline of today at the shop, so Naruhodō says Egg Benedict came for Lestrade's withdrawal. The initials on his cane say R.C. instead of not E.B., implying that Egg Benedict is a pseudonym. The black coat is too small for Benedict, so he must have just wanted the withdrawn article.
"Benedict" objects, claiming that he couldn't have known the password without actually having deposited the item himself. In response, Naruhodō notes that "Benedict" is actually looking at a memo of Hatch's. Thus,"Benedict" must have been at the shop before and saw the password. As for the crime, upon looking at the disc, Naruhodō and Susato discover a tag that says "To Megundal", Cosney Megundal. Apparently, Megundal deposited the disc the same day "Thrice-Fired" Mortar died. Naruhodō concludes that "Benedict" was trying to steal Megundal's possessions. Holmes is disappointed that the crime was not as grand as he imaged, but he carries on.
Suddenly, "Benedict" pulls out a gun demanding the coat and disc. Thankfully, Tobias Gregson suddenly comes in with the Scotland Yard. "Egg Benedict" gives up the coat, but escapes shortly after. Gregson hurriedly confiscates the disc for Scotland Yard despite Gina Lestrade's protests, muttering about a greater incident that the Yard is preoccupied with.
Investigation, Part 2[edit | edit source]
Officers start interviewing Hatch Windiback, so no one can enter the shop for the day anymore. Lestrade is still complaining about not getting the disc and "another item in the coat" paid off, blaming Holmes for the shop's closure. So he decides to invite her over for dinner but she refuses and sprints away. Holmes still thinks she'll show up and says he'll tell Iris to make a plate for Gina. He also says he'll Naruhodō and Susato something interesting later, but hurries off to the flat.
When Naruhodō and Susato get there too, Iris Watson greets the two of them back at Holmes flat. She is super excited about Lestrade coming over, even making them guess who it is despite them already knowing. Holmes is acting unusual again, claiming not to exist. When Naruhodō tries to talk to him, Iris says when Holmes is like that nothing goes into his mind. Iris, reading Naruhodō's mind about her parental relationship, then talks about her parents. Her mother died in childbirth and her father was pursuing a case with Holmes and went far away. The two men would always go on cases together, and all their records are in the metal trunk in the room, written by Iris' father. At that point, Iris was shocked to find out that Holmes wasn't her father, to which Holmes commented that she "had to be hidden". She can't wait to read Holmes' stories since he apparently forgets every cases he solves. She says her father is John Watson, the medical doctor - this was her motivation for becoming a medical doctor as well. Naruhodō remembers that Dr. Watson was the Teito Yuumei University professor that was killed before he left Japan and decides to leave the conversation there.
Suddenly, Sherlock Holmes jumps back to life and reveals that he got a replica of Megundal's disc from Gregson! He actually used his newest "invention", a bar of caramel that works like a mold. However, he doesn't know what music plays on the disc, so he tries every single music box in the room then from every shop in Europe. He also thinks about his first trial in London. He can't believe that he's hearing about Cosney Megundal again, especially since Megundal died. He doesn't know if it was really due Barok van Zieks' curse of the Reaper or not.
Iris and Susato begin to make dinner. When Iris mentions some Baskervilles story in passing, Susato identifies it as "The Hound of The Baskervilles", shocking Iris and Holmes. Apparently, Holmes forbade Iris from publishing her manuscript for it after she finished for unknown reasons, yet Susato somehow knew it's title! Before Naruhodō can inquire further, Gina Lestrade arrives, and everyone suddenly ignores what just happened.
After a great dinner, Naruhodō and Susato head back up to Holmes' attic. Susato tells Naruhodō that she received a telegram from Hart Vortex telling only her to come to his office. Iris then knocks on the door and enters with Lestrade. Susato pours tea for everyone. Iris comments on the pickpocketing tricks Gina taught them during dinner. She says she learned a lot. In fact, she stole Naruhodō's armband, though she returns it after Naruhodō tells her never to steal it again. With Holmes gone, Susato and Iris begin to talk about "The Hound of The Baskervilles". It was based on a real case that was more unique than the others. When Iris wrote the story, Holmes turned pale and refused to publish or even talk about it until "the time was right".
Lestrade says Holmes is feeding Iris lies. When asked about her parents she says she's been a pick pocket ever since birth, and she loves it. Her parents were said to have "thrown her away", so the orphanage is like a family to her where older kids look after the younger ones. She still thinks it would be nice to have parents and understands how difficult it is for Iris to have them not around. Regardless, Lestrade doesn't think the manuscript's in the pawn shop and instead that Holmes sold it for money. Iris doesn't believe he would do that. On that note, they get ready for bed, with Iris telling Naruhodō and Susato to keep this conversation a secret from Holmes.
A few minutes before midnight, Holmes suddenly wakes Naruhodō and Susato up, saying Lestrade is not in bed with Iris as planned. According to Holmes, Gina said she would come to Susato's breakfast tomorrow, but left an hour ago. Looking out the window, Naruhodō sees the lights of Hatch's pawn shop on. They realize that Lestrade must be there trying to verify if Iris' manuscript is there, so they all leave to go there.
The doors are open and nobody seems to be inside at first. But then two people appear and before the three can react, one of them fires a gunshot, taking down Holmes! Naruhodō tries to chase after the shadowed pair but they escape. Naruhodō sees a police officer who claims that the yard got an emergency report from the shop. Naruhodō brings the officer in to help Holmes. When he gets back in, however, Holmes tells Naruhodō to ignore him and instead check behind the storage door. It's locked, so Naruhodō looks through a small window on the door and sees Hatch dead and Gina Lestrade unconscious next to him, armed with a gun.
Investigation, Part 3[edit | edit source]
The next morning, Iris Watson asks Ryūnosuke Naruhodō about the incident. Naruhodō tells her that Holmes is not in any danger of dying and that Lestrade is the prime suspect for Windiback's death. Iris wants to visit Holmes, but Holmes is undergoing surgery at St. Antrewd Hospital, so no one can visit him. Meanwhile, Susato is being questioned at the police station, though Naruhodō wasn't questioned because he didn't see the two men. Naruhodō and Iris decide to check out the crime scene, but first they visit Holmes' ward anyway.
Holmes is not in his bed, a policeman comments on an odd "family" of Holmes. The man says Holmes' operation started hours ago, and he'll pull through eventually with some time. The two decide to go to the pawn shop where Tobias Gregson and the police are investigating. Gregson says the case is simple, so the trial will be held tomorrow. He mentioned two witnesses as will, which Iris deduces are the two burglars who the police arrested.
Naruhodō asks why Gregson acts so different around Iris compared to everyone else, to which he says that it is because she has him as a character in "The Adventure's of Sherlock Holmes". Due to the popularity of the novels, Gregon's salary doubled, so he feel indebted to the author of the series, Iris. After this, Gregson tells Naruhodō and Iris that Susato is currently at the High Court of Justice, so the two of them head there.
Naruhodō overhears Susato talking with Hart Vortex about her returning to Japan tomorrow. When he asks why, she tells the two that her father has a terrible fever, so she must leave as soon as possible. He then asks Vortex about Gina's case, which the latter dismisses as insignificant. Vortex reasons that the Scotland Yard has to quickly arrest criminals before they lie to prevent crime since more crime is being committed as police arrest criminals. However, he allows Naruhodō to be Gina's attorney since she has turned down every state-appointed attorney. With that, he leaves for another meeting.
Susato then tags alone with Naruhodō and Iris to see Lestrade in Cell 13 of the Gaol. When they get there, Lestrade turns them down. She doesn't trust any adults, including Naruhodō, based on her past experiences in the alleyways. Despite this, she agrees to tell them about the incident. She claims that snuck into the safe room of the pawn shop to get some money and got caught. Right after this testimony, she claims to be the biggest liar around, and before Naruhodō can question this Gina has to go be questioned by the police.
Susato is not finished, however. She tells Lestrade she's going to leave for Japan tomorrow, and she's made many memories in the past two months. However, she wants her biggest memory to be leaving Iris sad over Gina not accept Naruhodō's defense. Thus, she demands Gina not to accept Naruhodō's defense, so that Gina may be left alone to die. Gina agrees, but Susato traps her by saying that Gina has claimed to be the biggest liar around. She then demands proof from Gina of this.
Naruhodō realizes that Lestrade lied during Cosney Megundal's trial. Caught, she spills the entire story. Before the incident, Lestrade had heard two people climb into the carriage. Megundal never slept - instead, he had been whispering to Mortar. The inside of the omnibus had items and was pitch black but she heard a loud sound like someone fell over. Megundal then found her and had her sit next to "Thrice-Fired" Mortar's corpse, getting her hands bloody. Naruhodō realizes that she was the one the two passengers from the third trial saw through the skylight. She then saw a shiny disc next to Mortar. Megundal quickly hid it and told her to keep it a secret. Incidentally, this was the same disc Tobias Gregson took from Naruhodō in the pawn shop. Before the incident, Lestrade had heard two people climb into the carriage, Megundal wasn't sleeping like in the testimonies, he was whispering to Mortar.
When the two passengers left for the police, Megundal bribed Beppo, the omnibus driver, to deposit a coat into Hatch's pawn shop. He then told her what to say in preparation for his trial before letting him go. Soon after, Megundal hid the pledge ticket in some bushes, and Lestrade picked it up.
Gina Lestrade wonders if Ryūnosuke Naruhodō is mad that she lied during his important trial. On the contrary, Naruhodō is mad at Cosney Megundal for using children like her. He finally tells her that Holmes was shot, then asks if she really wants him to defend her. Reluctantly, she signs the written request. She still insists that she doesn't need an attorney, to which Naruhodō gives her permission to rip up the request form when they return. With that, Naruhodō, Susato, and Iris head back to the crime scene.
Investigation, Part 4[edit | edit source]
At Hatch's pawn shop, Tobias Gregson gets the written request from Naruhodō. He finally allows the three of them to investigate before returning to help the police. They first find a photo identical to the one Lestrade gave them earlier. The only difference is that this photo has Lestrade's exchange proof on it. Iris takes this opportunity to teach Naruhodō and Susato about stereoscopy. She tells them to cross their eyes, which allows them to not only see the difference between the two pictures but also "see in 3D".
The three then notice the shop's calendar covered with blood and shot with a bullet. Iris then unveils her newest invention: a modification to the smoke gun. This gun, however, changes the color of the blood to a unique color for every person, allowing blood to easily be identified. For example, the blood on the calendar turns green. Naruhodō then asks Iris to use her new device on the second cat photo since it has blood on it. The color of the blood here becomes purple. Naruhodō deduces that this blood most likely belongs to the "Thrice-Fired" Mortar from two months ago. He reasons that Megundal wore leather gloves and that the stain was made from a glove. Since Megundal wasn't hurt, the blood on the gloves were from Mortar.
Next, they check the storage vault and find Gregson in there. He briefs them on the case after some coercion from Iris. Apparently, the door was locked from the inside, so the police broke the lock and found the same scene as Naruhodō. Gina was also found to have a key to the vault door in her pocket. Iris uses her invention on Windiback's body, turning the blood there blue. Nearby, they find a chest in the back with all of Iris' written manuscripts including "The Hound of The Baskervilles", easing Iris' worries. Upon further investigation, Naruhodō determines that Hatch's gun, the supposed murder weapon, only fired one round.
Oddly, the photograph Lestrade gave them also has an exchange proof on the back for a music box. Naruhodō determines that this must have been the "second item" Gina was complaining about earlier. Gregson tells them that the deadline for it was overdue, so it must have been pawned off. When they exit the vault, all the clocks suddenly go off. Susato Mikotoba realizes how late it's gotten, so they decide to visit Lestrade once more.
There, her interrogation has ended, but she doesn't want to hear what the group found at the crime scene, having essentially given up. Naruhodō correctly determines that Lestrade broke into the pawn shop to confirm that Iris' manuscript was still there. She reveals that Iris was actually writing about Holmes and his partner, Iris' father.
Suddenly, Naruhodō sees that Gina's sleeves are stained with blood, so Iris sprays her, revealing blood all over the coat. Because the coat originally belonged to Cosney Megundal, Naruhodō finally confirms that Megundal was indeed Mortar's killer. With this, Naruhodō once again questions Kazuma Asōgi's creed to "always believe in your client".
Gina Lestrade still intends to refuse Naruhodō's defense, but after some pushing Lestrade reluctantly agrees to the written request. With that, Naruhodō perpares to leave, but Susato spots Tobias Gregson hiding near the cell. He tells them that visiting hours are over before leaving due to an emergency with Hart Vortex. With Lestrade's confirmation, they finally leave for Holmes' flat.
Back in the office attic, Naruhodō and Susato compliment each other, reflecting on their past two months. Susato gives Naruhodō the case files from the trial with Cosney Megundal, which she has neatly compiled together as a parting gift. She bids him goodnight with her "Susato Drop", her "special technique". However, at 2 AM, she is seen at Saint Antrewd's Hospital, where Sherlock Holmes bids her farewell, assuring her that he will "follow through with her instructions".
Former Session, Part 1[edit | edit source]
Naruhodō arrives at the defendant lobby. Iris Watson suddenly comes in with Wagahai and a newspaper about the rainy weather. There's also an article about Hatch Windiback's murder, much to Lestrade's dismay. Iris insists on being Naruhodō's co-council this trial, giving him the newspaper. As the trial is about to start, Naruhodō reflects on the belief Kazuma Asōgi entrusted him with.
The judge commences Lestrade's trial and asks why Barok van Zieks returned as a prosecutor after five years, to which van Zieks says he wouldn't tolerate two things: greedy wealth (Cosney Megundal) and betrayal, which he claims came from a Japanese person. The judge then announces the jury that gives Naruhodō some serious Déjà vu. It consists of a retired soldier, a young maid, a blond man with a stereoscope, an elderly doctor, an indifferent woman with a telegraph, and a Russian "tourist".
Prosecutor van Zieks gives the opening statement. Pawn shop owner, Hatch Windiback, was shot once from the back through his heart and died immediately. Van Zieks shows a photo of Windiback's corpse and the examination result from Scotland Yard. Apparently, the bullet's trajectory was an upward angle, which means the victim was shot by someone shorter than him, like Gina Lestrade. Van Zieks adds a map of the crime scene with where the victim and the defendant were as evidence too. Combined with Lestrade holding the gun, van Zieks believes that the case is clear cut. He then brings in his decisive witnesses, namely the two thieves from before.
The names of the two are Nemmy and Tully Tinpillar, criminal brothers who like pears and apples, respectively. The Tinpillars testify that they snuck into the pawn shop intending to burglarize it. They then stumbled onto the murder and were arrested as suspects. According to them, something drove the brothers to enter the shop. They heard a gunshot behind the vault door that was locked from the inside. When Naruhodō asks them about their crimes, they claim not to have stolen anything, though they accept their punishment for breaking in. Though their testimony matches the crime scene map, Naruhodō sees a big lie and says that they were the ones that shot Holmes. Van Zieks announces that a gun was found in their pockets with on round being fired, submitting it. Unfortunately, even though Naruhodō was at the scene, he can't prove the gun was fired unless he has evidence. In response, Naruhodō shows the blood test samples, claiming that the green test sample from the calendar is evidence of the Tinpillar's shot. Van Zieks has no objection, as this implies they didn't shot Windiback and are not related to the murder. He then shows the surveillance camera Holmes installed in the shop. The picture at 1:00 a.m. shows Windiback shocked and Lestrade holding a gun, leaving Naruhodō shocked. The whole jury votes guilty as a result, forcing Naruhodō to do a closing argument.
Juror 1 says all the evidence points to the defendant, 2 says that she disposes eyesore trash as a maid, 3 says the picture is clear, 4 claims someone wouldn't be alright if he forgot him, 5's thinks about the importance of telegraphing, and 6 doesn't think the Tinpillar brothers did anything wrong. Naruhodō points out a contradiction between Jurors 2 and 6. He questions Juror 2 about her statement, revealing that she believes the Tinpillar's were trash for shooting Holmes. With Juror 6 understanding that the Tinpillar's lied, he votes not guilty. In the process, Naruhodō receives a photo from 1:30 a.m. revealing that nothing was stolen from the shop.
Meanwhile, Juror 5 continues rambling about sound waves, in the process claiming that stereoscopes are useless. This angers Juror 3, who believes that stereoscopes are the future. He says a stereoscope can help you find hidden clues in two photographs, this is just what Naruhodō needs for the two photos he has. Everyone learns about stereoscopy, to Juror 3's happiness. Stereoscopically viewing the photos of the counter from 1:00 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. reveals that some items were moved, indicating that the Tinpillars did meddle with the counter. Realizing that the Tinpillars are hiding something, Jurors 4, 3, and 5 vote Not Guilty, allowing the trial to resume. Iris gives Naruhodō a stereoscope he can use later.
Former Session, Part 2[edit | edit source]
The Tinpillar brothers testify again. They admit that they touched the counter, but they insist that they just bumped into it. In addition, they thought the murderer would come through the vault door, so they had no opportunity to shoot Hatch Windiback. Nemmy says there was dead silence and then a loud bang. However, Tobias shoots this down by claiming that Nemmy claimed to have heard yelling before a gunshot in his questioning prior. Tully agrees, claiming he heard someone yelling "Give me that gun!". He believes that this was Hatch, but prosecutor van Zieks says that this gun was the one held by Gina. However, Naruhodō finds another contradiction: the Tinpillar's story would imply that Gina and Hatch were facing each other at the time of the murder, but Hatch was shot in the back. Since the Tinpillar brothers know they saw the victim with his gun, Naruhodō concludes that they met the victim. Naruhodō, van Zieks, and the judge chew the brothers out for lying so much and give them one last chance to testify the truth.
The Tinpillars say when they snuck in the pawn shop Hatch Windiback suddenly appeared. He then yelled and leaped at them. Tully was thrown up against the counter as Windiback was stronger than he looked. According to them, they pointed the gun at him and he ran past the door. Thus, because Windiback was the one who locked the door from the back, the Tinpillars could not have committed the crime as a result. Naruhodō counters this by noting the window on the door, asserting that someone could have shot Hatch through the window. He suggests that Windiback was on directly on the other side of the door. If this were the case, it would explain why the bullet's trajectory was upwards. Finally, Naruhodō claims Lestrade was the one who locked the door in order to protect herself. Even after this, the Tinpillars brothers assure the court that they are not the killers, but Naruhodō doesn't believe them as they shot Holmes.
Barok van Zieks sides with the Tinpillars, noting that only two bullets from two guns were found at the scene, making it impossible for them to have shot both Holmes and Hatch (since that would invalidate Lestrade's gun). Van Zieks calls Lestrade a scoundrel and shows everyone Cosney Megundal's disc, which he claims Gina stole. Tobias Gregson has a sudden outburst, claiming that the prosecutor had been told not to present the disc earlier. Van Zieks ignores this complaint. Regardless, all the jurors once again vote guilty, so Naruhodō does a second closing argument.
Juror 1 sees thieves as insensible citizens, 2 sees that only two bullets settle the case, 3 finds the girl Guilty no matter the way he looks at it, 4 says the operation troubled him deeply, 5 notes that Lestrade attempted to steal before the day of the murder, and 6 reveals he is an expert on firearms.
Upon questioning, Juror 4 reveals that he is the doctor that operated on Sherlock Holmes. Alas, he couldn't find a bullet wound anywhere. To solve this conundrum, Naruhodō turns to Juror 6, who is supposedly a firearms expert. He mentions an incident back in Russia where he was running through mountain trail in a freezing blizzard and he was attacked in the back by a sniper. However, he was never actually shot; the bullet ran into some ice which landed on Demiglaski, badly injuring him. Inspired by this theory, Iris remembers that Holmes would always carry three glass tubes in a pouch on his belt. Van Zieks reveals that the police took off the belt to look at Holmes' injury but they didn't check it. Van Zieks then submits the belt as evidence.
Upon inspection, the pouch has one broken test tube broken and burned. This solves the mystery of Holmes' injury - the Tinpillar's bullet must have hit Holmes' glass tubes, breaking a shard of glass off which injured Holmes. When they lift the cover of the pouch, Naruhodō and Iris find another bullet. Naruhodō presents this third bullet to the jury, proving that a third gun was shot at the scene. In light of this new evidence, the judge suspends the closing argument and brings out the witnesses yet again. The Tinpillar brothers deny shooting this new bullet, and Naruhodō agrees, saying there was a third shooter and an accomplice to the brothers at the time of the crime. Naruhodō shows the blood test samples of the calendar as evidence, saying that if the third bullet struck Holmes, the green stain must belong to a third party rather than Holmes. When asked who this third party is, Naruhodō suggests that third one is the gentleman, "R.C.," also known as "Egg Benedict". Sure enough, Gregson has a photo of "Egg Benedict" and Hatch Windiback at 11 a.m. The Tinpillars deny ever seeing "R.C.", but Naruhodō pushes on. He reveals that the confiscated disc from earlier had blood on it. Iris uses her invention, turning the blood green. With this evidence, Naruhodō claims that the disc and the calendar's identical samples confirm that "R.C." was the third part. Unfortunately, van Zieks dismisses this as untrustworthy evidence, and the Judge agrees.
With no new evidence and nowhere to go, Iris recalls that the closing argument was paused but never finished. Naruhodō takes advantage of this to ask for the jurors' verdicts. Sure enough, Jurors 1, 2, 3, and 6 vote Not Guilty, making the vote 2-4, once again allowing the trial to resume. However, because Naruhodō has indicted "R.C.", the court needs to find this mysterious man. Unfortunately, no one knows R.C.'s real name ... except Juror No. 5. After looking at Gregson's photograph, she confirms that the man in white works as a technician in the same communication office as her. The Judge then calls for a 30-minute recess to find this man.
Recess[edit | edit source]
Gina Lestrade doesn't understand why Naruhodō and Iris are working so hard help a pickpocket like her even in the face of evidence showing her about to shoot Hatch (the 1 a.m. photo). Regardless, Gina agrees to explain what she saw that night in detail. She confirms Naruhodō's hypothesis that she went to the store to check for Iris' manuscript. She broke the entrance lock and lit the lamp on the counter, only to find someone else there. She grabbed Hatch's gun to defend herself in response, but it turned out to just be Hatch Windiback. Reluctantly, he agreed to let her see the manuscript. After some digging, she realized that Holmes wasn't lying. Before she could escape, though, she heard noise from the shop. Windiback took the gun and told Lestrade to stay in the vault. She heard a fight and two gunshots, and then saw Hatch dead on the floor. In fair, she locked the door to prevent the killer from getting to her as well, then fainted.
Lestrade thinks that the man in white is laughing at her, and she still can't believe that Naruhodō and Iris trust her. In response, Naruhodō recounts the murder of John Watson, when he was the defendant and thought no one believed in him. However, Kazuma Asōgi, Naruhodō's best friend, proved to fully believe in him, and soon Naruhodō trusted Asōgi as well. Naruhodō concludes by telling Gina that she must believe in someone else for them to believe in her too. She begins to cry, but the bailiffs order they all to go back into the supreme court. Naruhodō hopes Susato is watching him.
Latter Session, Part 1[edit | edit source]
Barok van Zieks announces that the man has been identified. However, a scientific investigation determined that the blood-identifying device is not scientifically sound and cannot be used as evidence. With Naruhodō trying to think of another argument besides the blood samples, a policeman announces that the witness has arrived, his real name being Robert Crogley. He takes the stand to the left of Gregson and the two Tinpillars, then claims that Naruhodō's deduction is silly. With that, he testifies.
Crogley admits that he visited Hatch's pawn shop once but denies being at the shop at the time of the crime. He also completely dismisses the defense's blood samples as untrustworthy, insulting the jurors for believing in such "evidence" in the first place. Crogley suggests that the blood on the calendar belongs to the Tinpillars, but Naruhodō questions Nemmy instead, noticing that the latter has something on his mind.
Nemmy has a slip of the tongue, saying that Crogley was shot two days ago. Crogley denies Nemmy's words, but Naruhodō notes the bullet in the calendar looks like it was shot through someone's arm. Unfortunately, Crogley refuses to allow Naruhodō to look at his arm unless Naruhodō can find a connection between him and the Tinpillars. He goes further by saying that there is no connection to him with Hatch's pawn shop. On this, Naruhodō presents the music box disc, which contains a bloody fingerprint from when Crogley was cut. Crogley tells the court that the disc is his. As a result, Barok van Zieks orders Crogley to testify since the disc links Crogley to the pawn shop. Robert Crogley says the disc is his despite it saying "To Megundal" on the back. Gina Lestrade stole the proof exchange from him, so he rushed to the shop to attempt to withdraw it. Unfortunately for him, the disc ended up in the hands of the police. The judge remembers Megundal and is surprised Crogley was acquainted with him. Naruhodō remembers that Megundal ordered Lestrade to deposit the disc into the shop which makes Iris realize Crogley's testimony is a lie. Naruhodō announces that Megundal also deposited a small box in the shop and Crogley snuck in with the Tinpillar brothers to get it.
Crogley responds by saying he could've just waited two days for the box to got on sale. Van Zieks instead claims that no box was stolen that night. Gregson shows everyone two photos of the shelves two days apart and says nothing was stolen. Naruhodō is about to lose when Iris says she once again doesn't think the photos are the same. After using stereoscopy, Naruhodō announces that a box stands out between the two of them and concludes someone touched it and tried to return it. The judge orders the bailiffs to retrieve this item from the shop and calls a recess. However, Barok van Zieks denies a recess and says the box is not worth stealing, to which Robert Crogley agrees. Cosney Megundal was declared Not Guitly, so he had no reason to give those items to someone, especially considering that he was rich. Van Zieks demands evidence that the disc and small box are related to the case.
Naruhodō is unsure if he should admit that he got Megundal free and the fact that Lestrade committed perjury. Iris reminds him that the truth will always come to light, so Naruhodō decides to have Lestrade testify while the box is being brought to court and she knows something about the deposits in the pawn shop. The judge agrees and suspends Crogley's testimony, but he is to listen to her testimony. Van Zieks willingly agrees, and Naruhodō realizes that the prosecutor knows that the falsities of the trial two months ago will come to light.
Gina Lestrade takes the stand. Prosecutor van Zieks and Naruhodō recall the case two months ago where "Thrice-Fired" Mortar was killed. Mortar was said to be stabbed on the roof seating of the omnibus and dropped down from the skylight. Lestrade was hiding in the carriage doing her "job", and Megundal was killed right after the trial in the omnibus that caught fire. No disc or music box was mentioned in the trial. Naruhodō and Iris pressure Lestrade to testify, after which Lestrade reluctantly agrees to talk. She testifies that Mortar was really riding in the omnibus back then. When dragged out she saw a disc fall to the floor. Then she heard two passengers yell and go to the police, which was when Megundal bribed the coachman and told the latter to go to the pawn shop. Megundal told Lestrade to keep this a secret.
The judge immediately realizes that Gina's testimony this time is far different from her testimony two months ago. Van Zieks has the court acknowledge that the defendant, Lestrade, and Naruhodō were part of a grand scheme to have Megundal acquitted. Naruhodō accepts whatever punishment awaits him after the trial but demands that Lestrade's testimony is understood, beginning his cross-examination. Right away, he notices that Crogley and Tobias Gregson are whispering something to each other like a negotiation, so the Judge orders them to stop.
Naruhodō presses Lestrade's statements, so she elaborates. At the time of the crime scene, Mortar and Megundal were apparently talking about some purchases, but they came a verbal fight and loud thump that Lestrade heard in the compartment. Naruhodō concludes that the two negotiated about the disc and that Megundal must have killed Mortar to get it. Lestrade continues, saying Megundal put the disc on the floor into his coat and told her to sit next to the victim and stay silent. Before Oscar Fairplay and Adam Redifast left, Megundal hid her in the compartment. According to her, Beppo, the coachman, said he knew nothing of the incident during the trial. In reality, the black coat was deposited in the shop. Then, Megundal had Lestrade exit the carriage and told her to make a false testimony and retrieve the items at a later date. Naruhodō says Megundal probably put the items in a pawn shop to avoid the police.
Before Naruhodō can cross-examine further, an officer announces that the small box has arrived, so the Judge stops this cross-examination.
Latter Session, Part 2[edit | edit source]
The box is revealed to be a music box, and it fits with Mortar's disc. Thus, van Zieks orders that the disc be played to the court. Gregson suddenly refuses for the disc to be played, but Naruhodō and van Zieks agreed that it is evidence. Oddly, the disc just plays the same note over and over again at irregular intervals. Robert Crogley laughs, calling the box faulty, but Naruhodō assures the judge that it is significant and further claims that the box isn't even playing music at all. To back up this claim, Naruhodō presents the back of the newspaper he received from Iris right before the trial starts. It says a spy broke into the Ministry of Justice, stole government secrets, and leaked them to enemy countries through telecommunications. Juror No. 5 agrees with this, realizing that the "music" sounds similar to Morse Code. This would explain the negotiations in the omnibus and why the culprit broke into the pawn shop. Crogley dismisses this claim and demands to testify. The Tinpillars join Crogley on the witness stand.
Robert Crogley says that a operator couldn't possibly steal government information and that the music box embedding is not Morse Code since Morse Code contains two signals and Naruhodō only has one. He also claims to have nothing to do with Megundal and Mortar. The Tinpillars say they just snuck into the shop following what Crogley planned and admit that Crogley was there in the shop with them.
As for the Morse Code claim, Naruhodō investigates the music box and finds another compartment in the music box for another disc, almost as if two discs were meant to play at the same time. Alas, there is no second disc and Mortar made the negotiations, so Naruhodō can't press this line of quesitoning further. As for Crogley's relation to Megundal and Mortar, Naruhodō questions Tully after noticing the latter in thought. Tully reveals that Crogley and the brothers were childhood friends and that they used to be called "Milverton & Tinpillar Dairies". Naruhodō orders this added to the Tinpillars's testimony. Furthermore, he concludes that Crogley's real name must have once been Robert Milverton, which Tully agrees with. Crogley is forced to admit this, saying he changed his name after his poor parents divorced. However, "Thrice-Fired" Mortar's full name was Mortar Milverton, so Naruhodō determines that Crogley's father was "Thrice-Fired" Mortar.
Crogley begins to fall apart, claiming that he still can't possibly have anything to do with the discs. In the midst of this, he accidentally reveals his bleeding left arm to the court. Naruhodō takes the initiative, telling Crogley to admit to everything. Crogley concedes, admitting that he was at the crime scene. However, he turns this around, claiming instead that he witnessed the moment of the crime. Van Zieks orders Crogley to testify on this.
Robert Crogley says he was at the entrance when he heard something going on at the pawn shop. When he went in, Crogley was shot. He claims to have ran after Windiback, looked through the door window, and seen Lestrade wearing a black coat, armed. He further claims that he saw Lestrade shoot Hatch in the back, after which he ran. Then, Lestrade discarded her gun through the window.
The shocked judge wants the coat as evidence so van Zieks will have a professional from Germany detect the blood. Iris and Naruhodō protest, realizing that the blood on the coat that they discovered in the detention center could easily result in Lestrade's immediate conviction. Their plea is rejected, so they have no choice but to cross-examine. During the cross-examination, Gregson starts shaking Nemmy off the ground, apparently demanding to know why the police weren't informed about the third gun. The judge orders him to stop and he apologizes, but Naruhodō and Iris begin to suspect something about him.
Naruhodō gain no leads on Crogley in his cross-examination before a baliff comes in and announces that the blood test results on the coat have come back. The judge pauses the cross-examination, and the baliff reports that plenty of blood on the coat. Naruhodō tries to argue that the blood is from Mortar based on the blood samples, but the jury doesn't trust the samples enough, and they all vote guilty. Naruhodō is ready to admit defeat, but suddenly the baliff reveals himself to be Sherlock Holmes in disguise! He tells the court that he only needs five minutes to give something to the defense, the judge acquiesces. Holmes gives Naruhodō another paringt gift from Susato Mikotoba: Iris' "Cat Door Maker". According to Holmes, Susato told him specifically give Naruhodō the item at the eleventh hour. She believed that the culprit would do everything in their power to escape punishment, including underhanded tricks, so she prepared an underhanded trick of her own. Lastly, Holmes notes that Susato said she'd ought to be disqualified as a legal assistant, and Naruhodō recalls her saying the same thing to him. With his 5 minutes over, Holmes "faints" and is taken away.
Naruhodō remember that the cross-examination was paused and orders it to be continued, much to van Zieks' dismay. The Judge believes that almost all the evidence points towards a Guilty verdict, though, so he gives Naruhodō one chance to present one piece of evidence.
Naruhodō presents the invention on Crogley's statement about peeking through the door window. He says Susato, his "dear legal assistant", used it to create a peeking window on the door. However, the window was created after Holmes was shot, so when Hatch died the window couldn't have been there. Crogley is ready to dismiss this invention, but Iris proves that it works by creating on door on the courtroom door for Wagahai. Van Zieks says there's no evidence that reveals when the window was made, but Naruhodō once again shows the 1:00 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. photos, noting the lack of a slight horizontal line on the former photo, proving that the window flap didn't exist at that time.
Crogley laughs, claiming that there is no decisive evidence against him. Van Zieks agrees, but instead challenges Naruhodō to tell the court how Crogley could have known about the window flap if he was never there after Susato made the door. Tobias Gregson asks to leave but van Zieks denies it. In light of this, Naruhodō reveals that the inspector is the one that told Crogley about the window. He further claims that the Gregson passed on relevant case details to Crogley during their conversation during Gina's testimony before the recess. Van Zieks orders Naruhodō to provide a motive for the inspector to do this. Naruhodō claims that the two must have struck a deal; specifically, when the Yard confiscated the disc that Gina was trying to pawn, Crogley was desperate to get it back, so he went to Inspector Gregson to work out a way to get it back.
The prosecutor concludes that if Naruhodō's claim holds water, Gregson, who is skilled at his work, must have the second disc on him right now. Naruhodō agrees and orders a body search of Gregson. Surprisingly, Gregson allows it, claiming that he has nothing to hide. This arouses Naruhodō's suspicion, motivating him to ask for a body search on a different person: Nemmy Tinpillar.
Gregson objects to this but van Zieks ignores him as Gregson is not an attorney nor a prosecutor. Sure enough, the bailiff finds a disc on Nemmy. Naruhodō explains that when Gregson shook Nemmy earlier complaining, he forcibly passed the disc onto Nemmy. Gregson says that this was because he was ordered not to reveal the existence of the disc in court. However, Naruhodō still hasn't gained any ground. Crogley is still not admiting he gave the disc to Gregson, and Gregson refuses to admit that he was passed the disc. The jury trusts Inspector Gregson and is prepared to vote guilty. As a last-ditch attempt, Naruhodō intends to present one piece of evidence to Gregson or Crogley and force them to admit to a deal.
Naruhodō decides to present the first disc to Gregson again. However, this time he orders the court to play the music box with both discs. Theoretically, with both discs sounding, there should be two different sounds, creating Morse Code. Gregson protests this, saying that Naruhodō would be leaking state secrets by doing this, making Naruhodō an enemy of the crown. Naruhodō responds saying he will do anything to protect his client, no matter what enemies he makes.
The discs play and they sound a lot more like Morse Code. Gregson panics, ordering the court to stop playing the discs. He finally admits he told Crogley about the crime scene in exchange for the disc. With the deal out and open, Crogley has to be Hatch's murderer. Robert Crogley breaks his cane out of anger and uses it to strangle Tobias Gregson, causing him to spit a chip out.
Crogley, defeated, begins to narrate the whole story behind the case and the one from two months ago. He was a poor boy in the ghettos despite his divorced parents working so hard, so he studied as much as possible and eventually became a telegraph operator. Everything was going fine, but then he met Cosney Megundal. Megundal promised him a lot of money if he used his abilities to steal records of the government's telecommunication. Crogley thus encoded the information on two discs and a music box, and the two struck a deal: Crogley would send the first disc for ten guineas then the second on a later date in exchange for a thousand. Mortar Milverton was an apprentice to a music box craftman before he became a bricklayer, so Crogley visited his father to have him make a double-sided music box.
Crogley told his dad that he just wanted to make music for a friend since Mortar would never agree to commit a crime. However, on the second deal, Crogley received the one thousand guineas first, and gave two hundred to his father as thanks. However, this led Mortar to realize that Crogley was engaging in more suspicious behavior. With this, he asked to go in Crogley's place for the second deal. Crogley agrees, leading to his father's death at the hands of Megundal. When he heard the truth about Megundal, Crogley decided to use his money in the same way as Megundal. He hired many people, including a fake bailiff, to trap Megundal in the omnibus right after the trial. Then Crogley set fire to the omnibus, killing Megundal with his own hands.
After that, Crogley aimed to get the second disc back. Megundal had told him about Hatch's pawn shop and the password to get the other disc, but Crogley realized that Megundal had passed the disc onto Gina Lestrade. Unfortunately for him, she only had the first disc in Megundal's court. Scotland Yard was instigating who stole the secrets, and Crogley had to get the discs before them. So he hired his old friends, Nemmy and Tully Tinpillar, to sneak into the shop. While the Tinpillars rummaged the counter, Crogley got the disc. Before he could escape, Hatch Windiback shot Crogley in the arm and beat up the brothers. He attempted to use his own gun to fire a warning shot but out of reflex he shot Hatch in the back, killing him. Van Zieks notes that Megundal was a terrible man; however, Crogley's techniques were no different from Megundal's.
Robert Crogley is taken away to the Yard for the murder of Hatch Windiback and stealing government information. Tobias Gregson will also be punished for helping Crogley. Meanwhile, while Gina is declared Not Guilty, her crimes - false testimony two months ago, entering the pawn shop during the incident, and attempting to pass off Megundal's articles as her own - mean that she will still face some charges.
Van Zieks notes that Naruhodō just released the government secrets to the court, but Juror No. 5 says that despite hearing sounds that were like Morse Code, what she heard wasn't really Morse Code. Naruhodō speculates on this a bit with Iris in deep thought. On this note, the Judge gives Lestrade her Not Guilty verdict, and she adds her own firework to the six fireworks that are normally fired off.
Everyone leaves the court except for van Zieks and Naruhodō. Barok van Zieks takes this opportunity to elaborate on his motives for returning to court. He says he came back to court two months ago to see what Japanese were truly like through Naruhodō. He re-iterates that a Japanese man betrayed him years ago and tells Naruhodō that he'll eventually know of this story. They vow to meet in court again someday.
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
Iris is nowhere to be found, leaving only Naruhodō and Lestrade in the lobby. Lestrade calls Ryūnosuke Naruhodō for believing in her the entire way, saying that it's a first for her. She says that living in the alleys was a life of betrayal, so it was painful for her having Naruhodō believe in her. Naruhodō tells Lestrade she also has to believe in herself, remembering Kazuma Asōgi's words once more.
Suddenly, Sherlock Holmes once again reveals himself as a disguised baliff, complaining that Naruhodō and Lestrade never took the hint. He congratulates Naruhodō as a friend, much to Lestrade's disgust. Holmes taunts Lestrade about the Death Bringer curse, but she isn't worried. She reasons that the Death Bringer is like a god and won't kill innocent people like her, though Naruhodō wonders how innocent she is. Iris arrives again, having tried to look for Holmes at the hospital, and is upset that Gina won't be able to come to dinner. With that, she is ordered to go to be sent off to the gaol. Before she goes, though, Holmes recommends that Gina say "thank you" to Naruhodō in this situation. Gina cries while thanking Naruhodō for what he did, then finally leaves.
Iris has good news and bad news. Once again, Naruhodō wants the bad news, but Holmes wants the good news. This time, Iris decides to start with the good news: the rain stopped. The bad news is that Port Dover was hit heavily by the rain, so every trip from there was delayed by half a day. Naruhodō realizes that this means they have the chance to say goodbye to Susato Mikotoba! He thinks they can't possibly reach the port in time, but Holmes says he already set up a special train for this occasion after a "conversation" with the railroad company.
Naruhodō, Holmes, and Iris arive. The group sees Susato about to throw a British law book into the ocean, but Naruhodō stops her. Susato finally explains why she said she was a failure: she tampered with the crime scene by making the cat door on the pawn shop's storage door. During the dinner with Gina, Susato pickpocketed the cat door maker from Iris. However, she accidentally brought it to the crime scene. Worrying about Lestrade, she made the window flap. The only person who knew about her crime was Holmes.
Susato thanks Naruhodō for saving her in her pursuit of the law. As they ponder the remaining mysteries, Iris suddenly mutters "A... SO... U... GI?" which Naruhodō and Susato react to. When asked about it, Iris explains that the Morse Code they heard in the trial wasn't standard Morse Code, but instead the Iroha Code - Japanese Morse Code. She shows Susato the code based on her memory of hearing it (once) and Susato starts translating it.
Susato says that the code has four names on it - K. Asōgi, A. Sasha, T. Gregson, and J. Watson - simply followed by "THE ABOVE FOUR". They all wonder why these four names are together. Iris asks why her father's name is there, reminding Naruhodō of John H. Watson's death. Naruhodō decides that he shouldn't bring it up in front of Iris.
The steamship then sounds its horn, so Susato must depart for France, from which Susato will transfer onto a larger ship to take her back to Japan. The group bids her farewell and wishes for her to come back and be Naruhodō's assistant once more soon.
After the steamship leaves, Holmes and Iris says the railroad company is going to sue them. Holmes further adds that he put Naruhodō's name down as the culprit, and Iris comments on how much Naruhodō loves defending himself. She says she'll testify that Naruhodō is an untrustworthy person. Ryūnosuke Naruhodō can only say one word to all of this:
- Sherlock Holmes ended up receiving a mountain's worth of music boxes from all over Europe due to the newspaper printing that he needed help with a case. He notes that they've been selling like hot cakes.
- Iris Watson has been working on her new novel all night to finish before the deadline. Holmes said he would make breakfast for her, but she misses Susato's breakfast and complains about Holmes' cooking.
- In court, Taketsuchi Auchi declares Sanmon Sonohigurashi's testimony a complete contradiction. The latter objects, asking if his koban let itself be stolen, but Taizou Uzukumaru pleads innocence, saying his son Koroumaru believes in him. The judge politely told them he would rather not have the Supreme Court be involved with this fight.
- Satoru Hosonaga decided to infiltrate the Steamship Aliclaire, and remain a sailor after sending Nikomina Borschevic to Shanghai. He ended up picking up the very suspicious Sōseki Natsume. Natsume is enraged about the fact that merely holding Wagahai's kittens was an offense.
- Hart Vortex proclaims that that scientific investigations are the symbol of a new era for the police. He compares his ideal world of law and order to one hundred clock gears moving together without deviation. He then cuts his speech short, saying that he only has two minutes and thirty-seven seconds left until his next meeting.
- Tobias Gregson says he makes another appearance in the newest issue of the Strand Magazine. He states that he could already hear the cheers from the pub when he spoke his line "Rather good, for an amateur.", and says that he must forever look up to Iris.
- John Garrideb has been meeting with Joan Garrideb every day since her arrest. Since he's been using the stairs so much, his legs have started to regain their strength. He tried out being a maid for himself, but was baffled when no one realized it was him.
- Rola O'Malley is excited that Barok van Zieks allowed Patrick O'Malley to return. Pat reports that he often picks up small changes on paroles more than anything else and says his duty is to protect London and make Rola happy. The two hold each other in a loving embrace.
- Gina Lestrade has to stay in prison for a while, but she doesn't seem to mind as Iris comes to play with her every day. She notes that Iris always has a Holmes story or two ready to tell her, making her think that investigating crimes might be fun.
- Robert Crogley says that he had no regrets about taking the path that he did, but Nemmy and Tully Tinpillar tell him to take it easy and that they should bring back their milk business. They all strike the Tinpillar pose.
- Susato Mikotoba says she will never forget the time she spent in London with Naruhodō, Holmes and Iris, understanding that life consists of farewells and meetings. She promises that she will return one day and hopes that Naruhodō will keep her in his memories until then.
