 Episode Prologue: The Third White Room
Ran is in the bathroom of the district court with her mother, Eri Kisaki who is applying lipstick. Eri says the lipstick puts her in a fighting spirit and comments that today is about revenge. Ran asks about getting revenge on who when Eri tells her no matter what happens in court today that she shouldn't be frightened. Shinichi then receives romance advice from Eri and Eri reveals that her first present from her boyfriend was the tube of lipstick she was using earlier. Shinichi, Ran, and Eri head into the court room where the group is surprised to see Kogoro waiting. The defendant Reika Saito is brought in who is under suspicion for the theft of 10 million yen from the safe at the Mint Rose snack bar where she works. Reika denies the charges and claims she has an alibi for when the theft occurred and that Eri is an important witness. Reika claims to have seen Eri at a love hotel with an "oily old man", much to everyone's surprise. Reika continues to tease and make fun of Eri and the man when Eri warns Reika that her "own words will take (her) life" and points her fingers in the shape of a gun at her. Just as Eri says "bang", Reika is shot! Did Eri really kill Reika?
 Episode Resolution: The Fourth White Room
- This drama episode is out of line with the currently on-going Detective Conan timeline, as it apparently plays in a near future where Shinichi has been restored to his actual age. In the mainstream storyline, Shinichi was 7 years old when he last saw Eri Kisaki, and he was (thanks to the APTX 4869) yet in a child-like state when he meets her again in the Coffee Shop Case 10 years later.
