to:

** Or, to go with some versions of the game/books, he was Boddy's personal priest to whom he had made a confession, and something he confessed to was so heinous it convinced Green he needed to die. Alternately he was a mafioso or other crime boss to whom Boddy owed money.



** It certainly smacks of him blatantly saying "I'm heterosexual, no, really!"... but given the circumstances, Mr. Green might have had any number of reasons to say that that doesn't imply he is gay. After all, he has just spent hours pretending to be a fussy, clumsy gay - it might, for example, his way of having a bit of fun in telling the others that practically ''nothing'' they've learned of him during the night is true, including the thing he was blackmailed for.

** It also might explain why Wadsworth is so surprised at Green's casual reveal of what he's being blackmailed for: he's not surprised about the homosexuality, he's surprised the Green claims to work for State rather than the FBI.

to:

*** This would even work with the change in his demeanor at the end: while he was really gay, it was the fussy, effeminate stereotype of gayness that was being faked, and in actuality he was StraightGay or even ManlyGay (to go with the need to keep his orientation hidden in those times). And if he was being blackmailed for something else and was innocent of that, he could still really be gay but have his claim of innocence be true.

to:

** Or as noted on another page, the exclamation meant realizing Miss Scarlet was the murderer (of the Motorist, at this point).
** Another possible point in favor of this: the first ending is the one with the most flashbacks showing how the murders were committed--in fact it's the only one to show them for the Cook, Mr. Boddy, and the Singing Telegram Girl; the second shows none, and the third only shows the Motorist, Yvette, and the Cop, and the last two also appeared in the first ending. It additionally included explanations for things not touched on in the other endings like why no one heard the Cook scream (because of Mrs. Peacock and the poisoned brandy).






Think about it. STG was the only character Yvette wasn't shown being introduced to since she entered roughly about the same time [[spoiler: Yvette died ]]. [[HoneyTrap They are both in the business of using their bodies to blackmail or obtain information from powerful men. ]] Its not too far out of the realm of possibility that they were working together perhaps to murder Mr. Boddy.

* Telephones still work when the power is out. They're on a different system, and draw what power they need from the phone line itself. That's why you've never seen a telephone with a power cord.

* Telephones still work when At least in the United States, telephone equipment receives power is out. They're on a different system, and draw what power they need from the phone line itself. directly, rather than relying on the electric utility. Phone companies provision generators to keep this (low-voltage DC) supply available even when utility power goes offline, precisely so that telephones keep working during a power outage. That's why you've never seen a telephone the only phones you see with power cords are wireless, or equipped with a built-in answering machine, or otherwise outside the rather strict regulations on how much power cord.
an instrument may draw from the phone line, and for what purpose.

** The problem with this is Yvette's last words. If she was meeting Miss Scarlet as arranged, why exclaim "It's you!"? Unless she was a double agent for one of the other guests...

to:

** Looks like I was beat to the punch. There was a reason Mr. Green recognized him/her and how he/she had been been familiar with men's restrooms. Miss Scarlett asks him/her about whether he/she (going to just say Peacock now) thought that 'men could use a bit of practice'. She may have recognized how Peacock more herself like some of her girl's clients or the occasional male worker. There is also how she mentioned Yvette finding secrets for her and listing Senator Peacock. No one saw Peacock's invitation so it may well have been that it was derisively using Mrs. to hint about what would be exposed if Peacock didn't arrive or it may have not given a gender.




to:

** I do not know if that was based on a scene from the show, but it doesn't seem entirely likely to be there. Mostly because they play Cluedo and generally have Dr. Black. Of course, some media references Mr. Boddy as being Dr. Black's nephew from America, so it would give him quite a good motive. Might even give all the guests a motive to kill him in turn, for having ruined their lives by having people wrongly suspect them of being murderers.

He may not have been a cop at all. Considering that he seems to be ranting about being in danger over the phone ''while the power is cut''. Whoever murdered him, it was a mercy killing.
* Telephones still when the power is out. They're on a different system, and draw what power they need from the phone line itself.
