Conan realized right now that the couple before the former case was actually Vermouth and Bourbon and is now afraid if they heard the conversation about Jodie meeting Haibara between Conan and Jodie. Conan then re-thinks that Inspector Takagi said that the couple made a huge blunder, which Conan believes that it was a opening act from Vermouth and Bourbon and that they wanted to see how he was about to react.
