Situation[edit]

Part 1[edit]

Conan as Shinichi calls Ran but she's got something do and someplace to go. Conan muses that Ran must have something going on, something that's making her happy with anticipation.

Next, Kogoro Mouri gets Ran and Conan in the car and drives them to the office of his doctor, Yoshiteru Araide, who had insisted that he bring his family. While they're all in the doctor's home-based office, Ran asks the doctor's wife to use their bathroom. On the way there, she bumps into the doctor's young, altruistic, brilliant and very handsome son; she knocks a sheaf of papers from his hands, and experiences a significant touch from his hand to the top of hers when picking up the papers.

Later, after accepting an invitation to dinner there, both Kogoro and the doctor's wife Yoko cheerfully suggest that the son, Tomoaki Araide, and Ran marry. Logically, Conan gets jealous BIG time!

However, Yoshiteru gets electrocuted to death when taking a bath.

Accident?

EP170 Case.jpg

Location: Araide house bathroom
Victim: Yoshiteru Araide
Age: 51 years old
Cause of death: Electrocution in bathtub
Suspects: Yoko Araide, Tomoaki Araide, Hikaru Yasumoto, and Mitsu Araide
Yoshiteru Araide leaves to take his habitual bath before dinner. A blackout occurs while Yoshiteru Ariade is in the bath. The maid Hikaru Yasumoto resets the circuit breaker once, and then once again when the lights go back out. Yoko Araide and Hikaru go to check on Yoshiteru... and find him dead in the full bathtub, with a submerged electric razor.

Conan is quick to discover the cause for Dr. Araide's death: his electric razor has fallen into the filled tub, electrocuting him. Though it seems that Dr. Araide must have dropped the razor himself, Conan notices that some things don't quite add up: Why was Dr. Araide sitting with his back to the mirror mounted at the end of the bathtub when he was shaving? And where did Hikaru get the burn mark on her arm? But what distracts Conan from the case is that Ran and Tomoaki seems strangely drawn to each other, and a disconcerting thought dawns inside him: Could Ran have become interested in Tomoaki now? He is a rather handsome and popular fellow, after all...

Part 2[edit]

While Kogoro, Megure, and Takagi test all possible scenarios, Conan discovers several clues missed by the police and adds them up to the solution of the case. And as usual, he stuns Kogoro to use him as a mouthpiece to deliver his conclusions. But poor Tomoaki vehemently protests the questionings, claiming that none of his family could have done such a thing...!
