The Suspects Are a Passionate Couple (容疑者は熱愛カップル Yōgi-sha wa Netsuai Kappuru?) is the 822nd and 823rd episode of the Detective Conan anime.





Part 1

She is shocked to see an article saying the two of them are dating.

Kogoro and Ai are shocked and enraged at the news of Ryusuke Higo and Yoko Okino apparently dating each other. Therefore, Ai "hires" Kogoro to conduct an investigation about their relationship. While searching on the internet, they find out that the couple were spotted at a restaurant in Haido City. Conan then mentions that there's a new restaurant in Haido City which belongs to a senior of Higo, which results in Ai and Kogoro forcing Conan to take them there to spy on the couple. Haibara even goes as far as deleting the song Dandy Lion from her phone, even though it's her favorite song.

Teiya Asuka, Higo's senior and the owner of the restaurant, has gone missing. The three employees, namely Yasuto Konoe (a waiter), Reiko Banba (a waitress and Asuka's girlfriend) and Akimichi Yamada (the restaurant's sommelier), have to go look for him. Konoe later receives a message from the owner, saying that he is in the storeroom and want to meet Higo and Yoko there. But when the couple arrives at the storeroom, they find Asuka dead, with his neck artery slit.
