The antidote to the APTX 4869 begins to wear off and Shinichi is about to change back to Conan. Ran holds onto him and refuses to let him go but is tranquilized by Haibara and Shinichi is able to become Conan again without anyone noticing.
On another day, the Detective Boys are on a camping trip when Professor Agasa's car runs out of gas, stranding them in the middle of the mountain. A man named Goki Sudo drives by and refuses to help their situation. Soon after, Sudo drives to his home atop the mountain and an explosion occurs.
||34 years old
|Cause of death:
|Conan and detective boys found the Spirit of Ecstasy from Rolls-Royce Exploded.
The Detective Boys arrive to find Sudo dead. The police investigate and declare the death as an accident caused by a lit cigarette and spilled gasoline which vaporized in the garage. As the police interrogates Sudo's fiancée, Ena Ginbayashi, Conan reveals Sudo was not smoking a cigarette and that something else caused the explosion. Due to Ena's inconsistency with her story, Conan deduces the explosion was a planned murder by Ena.
Conan interrogates the party guests at Sudo's home and learns Ena has been persuading her husband to wear his wool sweater under his fleece jacket and to use his classic car for the past three weeks.
The police ask Ena to come with the station with them so they may ask more questions. She is escorted by Agasa's car where they stop by Agasa's garage to refuel on gas. Agasa trips, spilling the gasoline, and asks Haibara to use the key and open the trunk to his car. She is however stopped by Ena who proclaims an explosion will occur due to a static shock. The garage door opens and the police reveal it was a setup in order to gain a confession from Ena. Conan reveals that the reason Ena Ginbayashi was asking Sudou to wear his wool and fleece combination was to build up static electricity. He reveals that since Sudo's classic car did not use a remote keyless system, when Sudo attempted to lock his car with his keys, the static electricity he built up transferred from the key to the car-door's lock resulting in a spark which ignited the vaporized gasoline. Ena reveals that her motive was revenge. In the past her father had a heart attack and her mother, who was unable to drive, could not drive him to the hospital. Sudo, passing by the couple, refuses to drive them to the hospital and instead, laughs at their predicament. Her mother then passed away shortly after due to the shock of the incident and Ena swore revenge against Sudo ever since.
Manga to anime changes
- The scene in which Conan and Heiji were reflecting on Shinichi holding Ran's hand during his transformation was from the manga version of The Revolving Sushi Mystery, Part 1, but was included due to following up on What She Really Wants to Ask.
- In the manga, Conan is shown sitting in the back of Agasa’s beetle between Haibara and Ayumi. While in the anime, Conan is sitting in the front passenger seat and feels Haibara’s glare rather then seeing it like in the manga.
- The car Goki Sudo was driving to Sudo household and exploded is a Brown 1963 Rolls-Royce Phantom V by James Young.
