* Mr. Boddy's circle of spies features prominently as secondary victims [[spoiler: and antagonists]], but in none of the endings is it explained how Mr. Boddy knows of Mr. Green's sexuality, with no spy ever tied to him. While it's possible that [[spoiler: Boddy's butler or the Jehovah's Witness]] qualify, these only work in the third ending. Neither of the other endings offers any explanation.

** In those endings, Wadsworth may genuinely have not realized Mr. Green was a homosexual since he is looking at the photo in shock when the latter announces his. It's entirely possible Mr. Boddy was blackmailing him for a perceived a secret over his actual one.

*** It has to be the real Mr. Green, since [[spoiler: Boddy/Wadsworth was the blackmailer, and knows his marks on sight somehow, addressing each by their name upon arrival.]]



* Pay attention to the cook during the pre-Boddy scenes, especially during dinner. She manages to walk out of sight just as the guests, including Mrs. Peacock, [[spoiler: her old boss and the person she was informing on,]] entered the area. And during dinner, Wadsworth happens to step in the way of Mrs. Peacock looking into the now-open shutter to the kitchen and seeing the cook. Not one scene before the cook's murder has her being seen by Mrs. Peacock. This makes certain later scenes [[spoiler:("monkey's brains" and her parts in the murder(s))]] even more clever. It means that [[spoiler: she recognized the cook was the same one that worked for her from JUST THE DESSERT]]. In fact, it makes sense that [[spoiler: Wadsworth!Boddy]] would want to keep Peacock from recognizing the cook at that point in the night. Remember, at the start, Peacock is nervous and talkative because she dislikes the quiet. She might have accidentally blabbed about knowing the cook, cluing some of the others to their true purpose for being there. The movie made a point of such a thing happening when Ms White arrived and Wadsworth noted they seemed to know each other. [[spoiler: Wadsworth!Boddy]] knew that, while certain guests (White, Scarlet, Mustard) could keep quiet about Yvette and their connections to her, Peacock was more talkative and would not have thought anything of saying it.

* Similarly to the above, the premise involves finding both the murder weapon and the location of the murder, despite several weapons' natures being obvious (it's hard to confuse the cause of death between a stabbing and a hanging, for instance), and the dagger and revolver both causing sufficient mess as to make it difficult to hide where the murder occurred. Nominally explained away by the possibility that potential murderers may not have seen the body, and that the killer may have tidied up a bit. Also BellisariosMaxim.

* There are six murder weapons [[spoiler: and six murders, one for each weapon]]. Just like in the game, you can work out how Mr. Boddy was killed through elimination.

* After the bloodbath, we discover that all the visitors were either blackmail victims or Boddy's accomplices. The deaths of the latter supposedly clears the killer of the chance of prosecution, as the only witnesses are still subject to blackmail. Except we never hear how Mr. Boddy found out about Mr. Green. Makes sense in light of the third ending. In that one, Green is an undercover FBI plant, investigating Mr. Boddy. Since the best way to prove that he's blackmailing people would be to get blackmailed himself, Green could simply make up a likely story and intentionally get someone to leak it. Mr. Green gave a strong hint he's not supposed to be there. Remember, Mr. Green exposed ''himself''[[note]]''Please.'' We have ''ladies'' present![[/note]], with a confused looking Wadsworth briefly checking the evidence. He didn't know Mr. Green's blackmail!

** Makes sense in light of [[spoiler:the third ending. In that one, Green is an undercover FBI plant, investigating Mr. Boddy. Since the best way to prove that he's blackmailing people would be to get blackmailed himself, Green could simply make up a likely story and intentionally get someone to leak it. The other endings are more unclear. Maybe Miss Scarlet's brothel doesn't just employ female escorts?]]
*** That's an interesting point, and possibly supported by him saying he knew Miss Scarlet; he claimed it was just because he worked in Washington too, but maybe there was more to it...
** [[spoiler: Mr. Green gave a strong hint he's not supposed to be there. Remember, Mr. Green exposed ''himself''[[note]]''Please.'' We have ''ladies'' present![[/note]], with a confused looking Wadsworth briefly checking the evidence. He didn't know Mr. Green's blackmail!]]
*** And yet [[spoiler: Wadsworth recognized him at the front door in the beginning. ''Oh, you must be Mr. Green.'' Clearly he was expecting someone fitting Mr. Green's description to attend the party, although we'll never know what the evidence packet said about him.]]
*** Not necessarily--[[spoiler:"You must be Mr. Green," isn't what you say when you recognize someone--it's what you say when you meet someone you haven't met, but are expecting to meet. I.e., he knew what all the ''others'' looked like, but on seeing the lone unfamiliar face, he concluded he was the one he hadn't met yet.]]
*** Am I the ONLY person who thinks he doesn't look confused and looks more like he's thinking something along the lines of disgust and relief that he doesn't have to reveal ''that'', which was in the time period, probably the most revolting of the secrets, since he won't elaborate on the crimes of the others? He'll gladly list what Peacock, Plum, and White did but can't bring himself to continue, and the camera shoes Mr Green at that moment, implying he was going to talk about him, next.
*** I always thought the evangelist was supposed to be Green's informant; in none of the endings does Wadsworth look surprised to see him, implying he'd been invited (though whether he was told to come in that disguise or did it on his own is unknown), and whether the man was [[spoiler:Wadsworth's boss or Green's]] he could have access to Green's secret, or claim he does, or be able to learn it.
** [[spoiler: Alternatively, maybe Green was actually gay all along and the last line was his way of saying "My secret is safe, suckers!"]]
*** [[spoiler: this makes sense, considering even the tiny actions he does. When he and Yvette are walking back upstairs after locking the Cop in the library, she tries to either take his hand or his arm, I forget which right now, and ''immediately'' he pulls away from her in a way that doesn't seem to have to do with his being married. It wasn't quick, it was like a subconscious gesture.]]
**** [[Well maybe gay or married maybe Mr. Green didn't want Yvette accidentally coming across his own gun. so he kept his distance. in association with the third ending. ]]
[[I'm surprised nobody picked up on this. In tying with the third ending. the Fake Mr Boddy was trying to get them to kill the real blackmailer and not mention he flat out said it was a hoax and they should leave.]]
