    Turnabout Target 

Part 1-1 - Beginning

Di-Jun Huang, the President of Zheng Fa, is giving a speech at Gourd Lake about how the smuggling ring in the previous game was destroyed. As he talks about how the war against evil still isn't over, someone fires a gun at him. Panic reigns, the crowd stampede, and a call goes out to Miles Edgeworth. If anyone can solve this case, he can.

Edgeworth and Gumshoe arrive at the scene, learning that the President is currently in his plane, being attended to by paramedics. An enthusiastic reporter tries to ask Edgeworth a few questions, but he ignores her, and gets an overview of what happened from Gumshoe. The detective mentions that the park was sealed off following the shooting, leading Edgeworth to suspect that the assassin is still nearby.

After talking to Huang's bodyguards, he deduces that the assassination attempt was planned in advance, in order to avoid the heavy security around the President. Edgeworth then investigates the right side of the stage, discovering a Zheng Fa flag and a large Steel Samurai balloon, both with bullet holes in them. He suspects that both were pierced by the same bullet, but he can't be sure until he knows how many shots were fired.

The reporter - whose real name is Nicole Swift - is still trying to make herself known, so Edgeworth decides he might as well question her about the shooting, but she refuses to talk unless Edgeworth tells her about the case. Edgeworth's not willing to do that, and so we get our introduction to Logic Chess, Edgeworth's equivalent of Phoenix's magatama and Psyche-Lock breaking. Edgeworth begins by questioning Nicole about her job, prompting Nicole to get defensive for a bit. Edgeworth suggests that it's surely a reputable one at least, prompting Nicole to admit that she's yet to write any articles. Edgeworth jumps on this, and Nicole admits that she's a reporter. Edgeworth guesses that she may have information about the case.

Edgeworth asks Nicole if she witnessed the shooting, but she refuses to talk, claiming that information's her livelihood. Edgeworth warns her that she may put herself in danger, but Nicole assures him that she isn't going to be scared by a couple of gunshots. Edgeworth points out that if she heard gunshots, she had to have been present at the shooting, and Nicole admits that she came to Gourd Lake to write about Huang's speech. Edgeworth deduces that Nicole still has her original research material, and asks her to show it to him, but she claims to have not found anything newsworthy. Edgeworth argues that surely she would have gathered something on the speech, to which Nicole claims that she can't just share her information with anyone. Edgeworth then asks about her job, and Nicole states that she tries her best, and always carries a tape recorder around, leading Edgeworth to deduce that she recorded something on her tape recorder.

Nicole gives in, and shows Edgeworth her recording. At first it's Huang's speech with Nicole's commentary over it, complete with a mention of declining approval ratings, but then there's a conversation between the two men stood in front of Nicole, before we get to the shooting. There's two gunshots. From this, Edgeworth deduces that one bullet hit the President, and the other hit both the flag and balloon. With this in mind, he guesses that the assassin was stood on the left side of the park's audience area, based on the trajectory of the second bullet.

Edgeworth, Gumshoe and Nicole disperse the crowd in the left audience area - Nicole mentioning that she'll deal with the subsequent mud stains on her parka by simply turning it inside out - and they begin their investigation. Gumshoe finds a dark blue bag in a bin, within which lies a plan of the President's security detail, including the positions of his two main bodyguards, Rooke and Knightly. Edgeworth notices that they're not from Zheng Fa, and Nicole explains that Huang uses a private security firm, supposedly because he doesn't trust the Zheng Fa Police. Edgeworth wonders how such a sensitive document could end up amongst the public, before Gumshoe discovers something else in the bag: a gun with two fired bullets and an attached laser pointer, the former of which leads him to suspect it was used by the shooter. Edgeworth has a fingerprint test carried out on the gun and bag, but it fails to find any prints, even when the gun's bullets are checked.

Edgeworth then discovers none other than Winston Payne, who attended the speech with the chief prosecutor, and was one of the people in the private conversation recorded by Nicole. Noticing a TV crew nearby, Edgeworth tries to get some footage from them, but learns that their camera was destroyed in the chaos. It's at this moment that Kay Faraday makes her return, with an offer of help. After pleasantries are exchanged, Kay reveals a photo she took during the shooting, depicting Huang looking shocked, and Rooke and Knightly in action. Edgeworth notices that Huang has a rather prominent red spot on his forehead, that doesn't appear in any other photos of him.

Edgeworth deduces that the red spot is actually the light from the gun's laser pointer. Everyone wonders why the assassin would risk drawing attention to themselves by using a laser pointer, before Kay reveals that she took two more photos. The first is a selfie of Kay with the crowd and President in the background, taken before the shooting, and the second is a photo of the panicking crowd, taken just after the shooting. Edgeworth checks the first photo, and discovers a person in a red hoodie aiming a laser pointer at Payne's back. He deduces that this person is the shooter, and discovers them in the third photo, fleeing through the crowd towards the right side of the crowd area. After having the area cleared, Edgeworth heads over. He discovers a red raincoat hidden under a hot dog stall, and a discarded red button. Noticing that the coat's right sleeve is inside out and missing its button, he guesses that the assassin was in a hurry to remove the jacket. But that doesn't explain why the left sleeve wasn't the same. Edgeworth looks at the raincoat further, and discovers a bloodstain on the inside. He deduces that the assassin had an injured left arm that prevented them from putting it in the coat's sleeve, and bled onto the inside.

Based on these details, Gumshoe goes to search for the assassin. He returns with an ice cream salesman who'd look very familiar to everyone who completed Justice for All, although oddly enough, Edgeworth and Gumshoe don't recognise him. They do notice the bandaged left arm and the bloody wound on it, however. The man gives his name as John Doe, and claims to not recognise the raincoat, before giving his testimony. He agrees that the raincoat's owner is the likely culprit, but insists that there's no proof that the wearer was injured. Edgeworth squashes this claim, pointing out the bloodstain on the coat. He suggests comparing it with Doe's blood, before demanding the man confess.

Doe admits to owning and wearing the raincoat, but denies shooting the President, insisting that he was just at the park to listen to Huang's speech, though he adds that he saw the bodyguards react to the shooting before it happened. Edgeworth presses this point, showing Doe the security plan with the names of the bodyguards, and Doe shows a particular interest in Rooke, even going so far as to refer to him by his full name, Ethan Rooke. Edgeworth points out that only the bodyguards' last names are on the security plan, and demands that Doe explain how he knew Rooke's first name. Doe claims to be an acquaintance of Rooke's, and states that his name is one he'll never forget. Edgeworth suggests that they ask Rooke to validate this claim, but Doe remarks that even if he's proven to not be an acquaintance of Rooke's, it won't prove he was the assassin.

Edgeworth asks Doe why he removed his raincoat if he wasn't the assassin. Doe claims that he saw another figure wearing a red raincoat, who was aiming a laser pointer at the President, and realised that he'd be mistaken for the assassin if he didn't remove his own coat. He didn't bother mentioning this earlier because he didn't think anyone would believe him, and adds that this figure was stood behind Payne during the speech, as shown in Kay's selfie. Doe argues that there's a contradiction in the photo Edgeworth has missed up till now, and Edgeworth is shocked to discover that he's right: Nicole was able to record Payne's voice on her tape recoder, but she admitted earlier that she was stood right behind Payne when she did so...the exact same place the assassin is stood in the selfie!

Edgeworth asks that Nicole testify. She claims that she wasn't stood in one place the whole time, but was moving through the crowd while taking her recording, and suggests that Kay's photo was taken before she recorded Payne's voice. Edgeworth quickly shuts this down: Huang can clearly be seen raising his fist in Kay's selfie, and Nicole specifically mentioned him doing so in her commentary. He remarks that, contrary to what everyone thinks, she's not missing from the selfie; she's the person in the red raincoat! Nicole insists that she never wore the raincoat, and Edgeworth agrees; the bloodstain and unworn sleeve prove the raincoat is John Doe's. He argues that Nicole was instead wearing her parka when Doe saw her, since she revealed that it was reversable earlier, and the other side of it just so happens to be red. Nicole insists that she's been wearing it the same way for the whole day, so Edgeworth asks to examine the red side of it, explaining to the very reluctant Nicole that since it was raining earlier, the red side of it should be bone dry if she's telling the truth. Nicole's claims to innocence have effectively been reduced to libel.

Nicole denies being the assassin, but admits that she hasn't told the whole story. Before she can do so, the group is interrupted by Horace Knightly - second-in-command of President Huang's bodyguard unit, wearer of a prominent neckbrace and a spouter of chess and gun metaphors - emerging from Huang's plane. He reveals that Huang's unharmed, but Rooke - the head of the bodyguards - is dead, having bled out from a bullet to the chest. Knightly asserts that Rooke was shot while trying to get Huang to safety, making Nicole, the one who apparently shot at Huang, the murderer. Edgeworth asks that he be allowed to examine Rooke's body and talk to the President, but Knightly refuses, stating that the Zheng Fa police will be taking over the investigation now, and orders Nicole to come onto the plane with him for questioning. Nicole insists she's not the killer, and pleads with Edgeworth for help. Edgeworth admits to himself that they still don't know the whole truth behind the case, and that he could lose it if he stands by and does nothing...

...and then things suddenly escalate. Doe puts a knife to Knightly's throat, reveals himself to be Shelly de Killer, admits to attempting to assassinate Huang, and demands that Knightly return investigative authority to Edgeworth. Edgeworth goes along with it, seeing it as a way to continue his investigation. He gives Gumshoe instructions to set up a perimeter around the plane, and the group move onto the aircraft.

Part 1-2 - End

Edgeworth, Kay, Nicole, Shelly and Knightley are all in Huang's cabin on the plane. With little other choice, Edgeworth and Kay investigate Rooke's body. They observe that the bullet that killed him exited his body and is currently unaccounted for, and take note of the bulletproof attache cases Rooke and Knightley had with them, as well as Rooke's gun. Knightley mentions that the bodyguards' guns all come from Zheng Fa, and Edgeworth notes that it's the same model as the gun he found in the trash can. Edgeworth then notices a set of security monitors in the office, discovering that one of them appears to be missing, and that there are glass shards and a stuffed toy in the alclove. He also checks the office desk, discovering a bulletproof vest worn by the President, with a bullet embedded in it. Kay argues that that doesn't match up with the number of gunshots they heard, and Edgeworth suggests that one of the bullets killed Rooke and hit the President's vest. To that end, he requests to examine the bullet and get its ballistic markings, but Knightley reveals that the bullet was flattened when it hit the vest, making getting the markings impossible. Also on the desk are some files, including the President's security plan from last week. Oddly enough, Rooke and Knightley's positions are swapped around in the earlier plan. Knightley explains that two days ago, Shelly attempted to assassinate the President - putting Knightley in the neckbrace in the process - and might have succeeded if Rooke hadn't put a bullet in Shelly's arm. The fact that Rooke managed to do that earned him Shelly's respect, to the point that he really wants to know how he died. Knightley adds that the injury he got from Shelly left him unable to turn his head to the right, necessitating the swapping of his and Rooke's positions.

At this point, Shelly declares that he's run out of patience, and threatens to kill Knightley if Huang doesn't show his face and help Edgeworth. Huang does nothing, even with one of his subordinates in trouble, and Shelly decides to take his leave, though not before knocking out Edgeworth and claiming to have seen "the truth". Edgeworth wakes up to find Gumshoe on the scene, and Shelly nowhere to be found, though the assassin did leave his calling card. The prosecutor wonders what Shelly meant with his last words.

With Shelly gone, the musclebound and lionlike Huang, who seems amazingly calm for someone who was nearly killed, chooses this moment to appear. Though grateful for Edgeworth's help in the Yatagarasu case, and impressed with his investigative ability, he reminds Edgeworth that the Zheng Fa police will be taking over the investigation. Edgeworth asks for an explanation, but Huang refuses to give one, and Edgeworth is forced to hand over all his evidence. Huang and Knightley them move to detain Nicole, who desperately insists that she's innocent. By this point, Edgeworth is convinced the President is hiding something. Time for some Logic Chess!

Edgeworth first asks for confirmation that the Zheng Fa police will indeed be taking over the investigation. After a great deal of attitude, Huang confirms it, and remarks that being on the presidential plane is tantamount to standing on Zheng Fa soil. Edgeworth again asks for an explanation of why Huang wants him off the investigation, and Huang again refuses to tell him. Edgeworth remembers Huang's earlier remark, and deduces that the President wants to claim extraterritorial rights. Huang goes pale and refuses to answer the claim, and Edgeworth realises he's right. Huang admits that he indeed wishes to claim extraterritorial rights, but insists that it changes nothing about the current situation, prompting Edgeworth to try and challenge that claim. He suggests that Huang's being a bit too forceful in arresting Nicole, but the President replies that it's not a matter of forcefulness, but authority. After all, Nicole did fire a gun at him while he was giving his speech earlier. With that in mind, Edgeworth asks if Huang's claim of extraterritorial rights is actually valid. Huang reminds Edgeworth that the presidential plane counts as Zheng Fa territory, and Edgeworth reminds Huang that, as he himself said, the shooting took place when he was outside the plane giving his speech. Therefore, extraterritorial rights do not apply here!

Huang is forced to concede defeat and allow Edgeworth to investigate. Edgeworth gets his evidence back, and he asks that Huang testify about the shooting. Despite a protest from Knightley, who argues that that sort of thing should be left to the courts, Huang grants Edgeworth's request. He claims that he was on the stage when Rooke and Knightley moved to cover him, with the first gunshot being fired soon afterwards, hitting a red balloon. Rooke and Knightley attempted to get Huang onto the plane, but then the second shot hit Rooke and Huang's bulletproof vest. Kay questions why Huang would want to interrupt the investigation into his own assassination, and Edgeworth remarks that there's a dark secret to this case that Huang and Knightley are trying to protect. Beginning his rebuttal, Edgeworth points out that the balloon in question was shaped like the Steel Samurai, and asks how Huang could fail to notice that. Huang is taken aback by this, having assumed that the balloons were ordinary red ones, as depicted in the security plan, and Knightley explains that they were forced to use the Steel Samurai balloon - or more specifically its red hakama - as a last minute replacement. Edgeworth asks how Huang could have failed to notice that the balloon had been changed. After a slight hesitation, Huang claims that he was unable to see the balloon because a strong wind was causing the Zheng Fa flag to wave in front of it, obscuring his view of it.

Edgeworth thanks Huang, declaring that the President has helped him find a huge contradiction in the case. If the flag wasn't still, but was actually waving between Huang and the balloon, it would have been impossible for someone stood in the audience area to hit the flag and balloon with one bullet. In fact, they'd have had to be stood on the stage. And based on the bulletholes, the only person on stage who was in position to make the shot was Knightley! Huang and Knightley deny the idea of Knightley being the assassin, and the President demands evidence that the flag was waving about during the shooting. To which Edgeworth presents Kay's photo of the shooting, which clearly shows the flag flying. He agrees however that Knightley isn't the assassin; his shot was fired in the opposite direction of the President. Knightley asks why he would fire such a wayward shot, and Edgeworth realises that the answer to that question is tied to the reason Rooke and Knightley's positions were switched around.

With a bit of logic, he figures it out; with his neck injury preventing him from looking right, Knightley would have been unable to shoot either of the balloons in his original position, hence the change. Edgeworth remembers Knightley mentioning that the change came on the President's orders, and realises that Huang therefore knew a balloon was going to be shot, meaning in turn that he knew of the assassination attempt beforehand! It explains everything; the assassin managing to get a gun past tight security, the assassin wearing a conspicuous red hood, the use of the laser pointer, the President's calmness in the aftermath of the shooting, and last but not least, Huang's attempt to usurp the investigation from Edgeworth: the entire thing was a set-up!

Edgeworth reasons that Knightley fired off two gunshots to make it look like someone shot at the President, and that the bulletproof vest was prepared in advance to reinforce that myth. Though Huang insists that he was shot, Edgeworth suggests that they examine the bullet embedded in the vest; if the President's story is true, it should have Rooke's blood on it. That shuts Huang up for a bit, but he tries to point out the figure in the red hood who shot at him. Edgeworth reminds him that Knightley was the only one who could have made the shot in question, and guesses rightly that Nicole was in on the plan; she wore the red hood, stood in the crowd and pointed the laser at Huang. Once the panic from the shooting started, she would flip her parka around and drop the gun and security plan in the trash, making it look like the "assassin" had managed to flee the scene. The entire assassination was, in Edgeworth's own words, " asinine publicity stunt from a lying president!" Huang has been impeached, and he goes from a blustery, musclebound lion of a man to a flabby, snivelling pup of one.

At this point, Knightley objects (seriously, he gets an Objection! voice clip and speech bubble), pointing out that if he did fire his gun, someone in the audience would have seen him. Edgeworth has an answer; the bulletproof attache cases of the bodyguards. In the photo, Knightley had his open and covering his right hand; he could have hidden his gun behind it, fired, and the audience would be none the wiser. Knightley responds by arguing that Edgeworth still has no evidence supporting any of his theories, remarking that if only he had one of the fired bullets, he could determine whether or not Knightley did the shooting. Nicole then speaks up, prompting Knightley to try and intimidate her into keeping silent. Edgeworth convinces her to speak, and Nicole admits that the fake assassination scheme was indeed real, having taken part in it in exchange for an exclusive interview with Huang. She can't explain where the gun in the trash came from however; she just used an ordinary laser pointer and was told to come to Gourdy Park in a red hood. Regardless, Edgeworth has proof of the fake assassination scheme, and Huang confirms it as well, admitting that he wanted to boost his low approval ratings. Kay asks about Shelly, and Huang suggests that the plan was leaked to the assassin, leading Edgeworth to deduce that he took advantage of it to get close to the President by posing as the red hooded figure.

Huang then brings up the question of why Rooke was murdered; his death was never part of the plan. The President admits that he regarded Rooke as the best of his bodyguards, and adds that Rooke had wanted no part in the fake assassination. In contrast, Knightly disparages Rooke; his death meant nothing in the grand scheme of things, and he was apparently too much of a coward to get involved in the fake assassination. He adds that with Rooke's death, he's now the head of Huang's bodyguards, and bitterly remarks that if Rooke hadn't died, Shelly would have had no reason to help Edgeworth continue his investigation and ultimately spoil his plan. He then argues that while he fired the first bullet, hitting the samurai balloon, the bullet that hit Rooke was fired by Nicole.

Knightly testifies that after shooting the balloon and getting Huang in the plane, he led the President into the security room while Rooke waited in the cabin. When he returned, Rooke was dead, having been hit by Nicole's bullet while getting the President inside. He argues that Nicole used the gun found in the trash. Edgeworth points out that said gun was fired twice, contrary to the number of recorded gunshots, and suggests that it was planted by the real criminal to throw off suspicion. Since they proved that the gun in the trash wasn't fired at the flag and balloon, Edgeworth can't help but doubt whether it was used to kill Rooke as well. Knightley tells Edgeworth to go ahead and say what's on his mind, and Edgeworth does just that, accusing Knightley of murdering Rooke. He could have used the fake assassination as a cover, and was alone in the cabin with Rooke after putting Huang in the security room. In addition, the soundproof walls of the plane would prevent anyone outside hearing a third gunshot. Kay points out that Huang was in the room next door, and he claims to have not heard a third gunshot. In addition, he didn't have the security feed on, and was cowering under his bed; he hates the sound of guns, you see.

Edgeworth argues that this gave Knightley plenty of opportunity to murder Rooke without Huang becoming a witness. Knightley again tries to blame Nicole, suggesting that her gun had been fired prior to the day of the shooting. Edgeworth thinks that if he could just find the bullet that killed Rooke, they'd have all the proof they needed. He argues that the bullet's somewhere in the cabin; now that they know that the damaged bulletproof vest was prepared in advance, that bullet's currently unaccounted for. Edgeworth points out the missing security monitor and suggests that the bullet hit it, prompting the killer to hide it somewhere in the cabin to make it look like the bullet hit the vest. Huang gives permission for the cabin to be searched, and Gumshoe discovers the monitor and the bullet hidden within. A forensic report confirms that the bullet hit Rooke, and that the gun found outside has Knightley's fingerprints on it, presumably from when he confiscated the evidence earlier. According to the ballistic markings however...the bullet was fired from the gun found outside!

Nicole's in deep shit, and Knightley declares that, since the guilty gun has been determined, and he couldn't have fired it since he was on stage, all the evidence points to her being Rooke's killer. Though Edgeworth's doubtful that Nicole's the culprit, he has to admit that all the evidence points in that direction, to which Kay suggests that perhaps he should doubt the evidence. Edgeworth realises that while the bullet couldn't be tampered with since it was only just discovered, Knightley had access to the gun when he confiscated all the evidence earlier. He could have easily swapped the laser pointer between the gun and his own one. With that in mind, he accuses Knightley of doing so, stating that the gun used to kill Rooke was Knightley's, and that it was the gun Knightley gave Edgeworth when he returned all the evidence, the bodyguard anticipating that Edgeworth would want to check for ballistic markings.

Knightley argues that it's just a coincidence that both guns are the same model, and points out that there's no proof that he switched them around. To which Edgeworth presents the gun, explaining that if Knightley did indeed swap the guns, he would have had to load another bullet to disguise the fact that it had been fired three times; twice on the stage, and once to kill Rooke. Meaning that his fingerprints would be on the gun's bullets, something that should not be the case if he only confiscated and returned the evidence. The forensics officer confirms that Knightley's fingerprints are on the bullets. Knightley is well and truly checkmated.

Knightley bitterly claims that he should have been the head bodyguard. As he's being taken into custody, Knightley warns Edgeworth that this game isn't over yet. Edgeworth replies that the game will continue in the courtroom.

Behind the Turnabout

Edgeworth, Gumshoe, Kay, Nicole and Huang - now back in his "public" persona - assemble outside of the plane. Huang thanks Edgeworth, and apologises for his earlier deception. Edgeworth warns Nicole that she will face police action over her part in the fake assassination, and she too apologises for her actions. Edgeworth also notes that Shelly is still at large, and has yet to kill Huang.

The events at the park make big news, and Edgeworth remarks that, despite all the furore, no-one noticed that "the game had only just began"...

    The Imprisoned Turnabout 

Part 2-1 - Beginning

Two days after the last case and the day before Knightley's trial, Edgeworth, Gumshoe and Kay are at the detention centre, hoping to talk to Knightley. He doesn't show up, and the trio soon learn that Knightley has inexplicably been found dead within the prison. A guard leads the trio to the prison workroom, where Knightley's body was found. He's sporting a bloody neck wound, and there's a portable chessboard, a pink glove covered in mud and a length of rope lying nearby, In addition, his body is partly covered by a muddy sheet. Edgeworth wonders how Knightley ended up in the prison, given how suspects are held in the detention center until their trials.

Edgeworth examines the body, and deduces that Knightley died instantly from his neck wound. He also discovers small bruises on his head and notices that his clothes are stained with dirt. Looking at the glove, Edgeworth notices that one side is covered in blood, showing that it was dropped after the murder, into the pool of blood around Knightley's neck. Deducing that the glove's owner at least discovered the body, Edgeworth questions a guard about it, learning that the gloves are used by the prisoners for labour, but are also strictly regulated. Examining the inside of the sheet, Edgeworth notices a ring on Knightley's hand that was previously hidden by the sheet, and that the sheet's also covered with blood. He notices a stack of similar sheets in the workroom.

Edgeworth remarks that they have yet to find the murder weapon, noting that such a thing would not be easy to obtain inside a prison, before a rather laid-back man enters the room. Edgeworth recognises the man as Raymond Shields, but the two of them don't appear to get along well, with Ray ribbing Edgeworth over his connection to Manfred von Karma, and remarking that he hasn't forgotten about Edgeworth's "betrayal". Ray turns out to be a defense attorney, and Knightley's lawyer. Edgeworth and Ray talk, with both men mentioning that they were planning to meet with Knightley. Ray expresses his surprise that Edgeworth would meet with a defendant, given his former belief that they were always guilty. Edgeworth assures him that that's a thing of the past, but Ray isn't convinced. Ray mentions that he met up with Knightley yesterday - the two of them bonding over a mutual dislike of Edgeworth - and adds that he's been regularly visiting an old acquaintance at the detention centre.

Back to the case, Edgeworth talks about the workroom. Ray informs him that prisoners carry out job training here as part of their rehabilitation. They also learn from a nearby guard about the prison's security; all of the prisoners are given electronic bracelets, and the door to the workroom - along with a few others - is equipped with sensors that look for the bracelets. If a prisoner tries to go through a door without a guard, the bracelet emits an alarm, and eventually shocks the wearer. The guard adds that no-one has used the workroom for the last few days. Edgeworth finds a contradiction; if both those things are true, there shouldn't be a prisoner's glove inside it.

Edgeworth asks the guard if there's anyone other than the prisoners and guards who can get into the workroom, but it's Ray who answers. He reveals that the prison is home to a number of animals whom are given to the prisoners to raise as pets - another part of their rehabilitation - and all of them can pass through the sensors whenever they please. Gumshoe argues that an animal would have no reason to drop a glove in the workroom, but Ray states that the possibility still exists. Once this point is explained, the group are interrupted by a large black dog with a small bell on its collar, who barks at Edgeworth for a bit before walking off. Edgeworth notes that the dog seems different from the other animals, and seems to have it out for him. The group then decide to question people, and start with a nearby prisoner; former boxer and exercise-obsessed Jay Elbird and his pet polar bear cub Rocky. Elbird's reluctant to talk, however, so it's time for some Logic Chess!

Edgeworth first asks about Elbird's movements. Elbird tells him to get into his stance if he's looking for a fight. Edgeworth declines, and remarks that Elbird's constant bobbing and weaving must be tiring him out. Elbird claims that he didn't do a heavy workout today, but just rested quietly in his cell, prompting Edgeworth to ask why he's covered in sweat if that's the case. Elbird tries to duck the question by claiming to be getting tired, to which Edgeworth points out that that can't be the case if he just sat quietly in his cell earlier as he had claimed. He's definitely hiding something. Edgeworth then asks Elbird what he was up to during the incident. Elbird claims that he was sleeping as part of his exercise, to which Edgeworth acknowledges that sleep is an important part of training. This earns him Elbird's approval, the boxer even referring to him as "Mr Prosecutor". To which Edgeworth points out that he never told Elbird that he was a prosecutor; the only way he could have found out is if he overheard Edgeworth talking earlier, meaning he couldn't have been asleep then! Elbird admits that he lied about being asleep and was actually exercising, but states that it makes no difference, and Edgeworth keeps his remark in mind. He then asks Elbird if he noticed anything unusual during the time of the incident. Elbird says nothing at first, before claiming that he was asleep, prompting Edgeworth to call him out on the lie and demand he just tell the truth. Elbird tells him to calm down, or he'll frighten the animals again. "Again?" Edgeworth asks, figuring that something definitely happened to scare the animals earlier.

Elbird throws in the towel, and he admits that he heard a scream earlier. Before Edgeworth can question him on this, Ray suddenly interrupts. He informs Edgeworth that he'll be observing him closely, and reporting his findings to "that person". Kay tries to ask who this person is, but Edgeworth insists she doesn't need to know; Ray can do whatever he likes otherwise. Ray tells Edgeworth that "that person" will be interested in learning how he's lived since abandoning Von Karma's teachings, adding that he'll expose Edgeworth's minstakes and not let him disappoint them any further.

That settled, Edgeworth questions Elbird. The prisoner testifies that he returned to his cell at 10AM and began his exercise, before hearing someone shout "AAARGH! I've been stabbed!". Since he was unable to leave his cell, he ignored the screen and went back to his training. Before beginning his rebuttal, Edgeworth learns that Elbird got all of his exercise equipment from someone known as "The Supplier", a figure who provides the prisoners with stuff from outside the prison. Edgeworth then starts his rebuttal by pointing out that Knightly died instantly upon being stabbed, and so couldn't have screamed. Elbird is surprised upon hearing this, before admitting that the one who heard it was actually the prisoner next door. Edgeworth questions this prisoner, who states that the scream actually came from the man who discovered the body. Edgeworth still has a problem with Elbird's testimony however, namely the fact that he didn't hear the scream. Upon being questioned about this, Elbird accuses the group of suspecting him, and the mood turns ugly when Elbird and his fellow prisoners point out that they couldn't have committed the murder because they were all stuck in their cells.

Then all of a sudden, a woman in a black dress and a priest's cloak, accompanied by a very young man in a blue uniform, enters the scene and quells the riot. She wastes no time having Elbird dragged off to the disciplinary room for the night, stating that he'll be enjoying the blessings of the "Goddess of Law", before she introduces herself as Judge Justine Courtney. She informs Edgeworth that she came to see him as a representative of the "Prosecutorial Investigation Committee", a group made up of eleven people from the legal world that is dedicated to investigating and policing prosecutors, with those considered unfit for the job being sacked. Specifically, she's here to take Edgeworth off the investigation, which will now be handled by Sebastian Debeste, a rookie prosecutor and the young man accompanying her, who by this point has established himself as an arrogant, egotistical, ditzy and inexperienced prosecutor.

Edgeworth requests an explanation, and Courtney informs him that he overstepped his authority with some of his actions in the last case, namely boarding President Huang's plane and ordering a search of his staff. Edgeworth argues that, regardless of the legality of his actions, they still allowed him to discover the truth, but Courtney replies that the end never justifies the means. Edgeworth tells Courtney that he can't agree with her supporting the rules above all else, and Courtney has him, Ray and Kay removed from the crime scene. Before Edgeworth leaves, he informs Courtney that they'll meet again, and Ray reminds him that he'll be informing "that person" about him.

Part 2-2 - Middle

The next day, Edgeworth and Kay are gathered in Edgeworth's office, Kay still fuming over Courtney and Sebastian's behaviour yesterday, Edgeworth more concerned about the P.I.C's actions. He's not going to give up on this case, but before he can decide on what to do, he gets a call from Gumshoe, who tells him that Sebastian's already arrested a suspect in the case.

Edgeworth and Kay head to the detention center and meet the suspect, a timid, wimpy-looking young man by the name of Simon Keyes. Edgeworth tries to talk to him, but finds himself unintentionally intimidating the poor guy, so Kay has to step in. Simon tells her that he was a friend of Knightley's and had come to visit him at the detention center two days ago, after Knightley had requested that Simon bring him his portable chessboard. Edgeworth presents the chessboard he found in the workroom, and Simon confirms that it was Knightley's, sadly remarking that it would be just like him to carry a chessboard till the end of his days. Kay observes that Knightley must have been close to Simon, and Simon admits that he thought so too, until he learned that Knightley was capable of committing murder. By this point, Kay refuses to believe that Simon's the culprit, and Edgeworth admits that he can't see a motive here. He questions Simon on why he was arrested, but Simon says he doesn't know; Sebastian and a cop just barged into his house and arrested him this morning.

Gumshoe shows up at this point, just as Simon's fretting over being questioned by a burly detective. With Kay convinced that Simon's innocent, Edgeworth asks him if he murdered Knightley. Simon confirms his innocence and Edgeworth agrees to help him prove it. He's got a personal stake in this case, after all. He still lacks investigative authority, so Gumshoe suggests that he borrow a defense attorney's badge again, Kay shutting this down on the basis that it would never work. Kay and Gumshoe then leave, but before Edgeworth joins them, he warns Simon that he'll show no mercy if he's proven to be the killer, though he assures him that he's on his side until then.

Edgeworth meets Gumshoe and Kay in the detention center corridor, where they run into none other than Ray, who's just taken on Simon's case. Edgeworth decides that if he can't investigate, he'll join forces with someone who can, and requests that Ray appoint him as a subordinate, but Ray refuses on the basis that he doesn't take sidekicks, especially ones who were like sons to Manfred von Karma. Edgeworth assures him that he's changed for the better since then - with Gumshoe and Kay both vouching for him - and points out how strange the P.I.C's actions have been, suggesting that there's something else hidden behind this case. Seeing a humbled Edgeworth practically begging for his help surprises Ray, and he agrees to take the former Demon Prosecutor on as an assistant; he wants to know what's going on in this case, and what bought about this change in Edgeworth. Edgeworth admits, in a nutshell, that it was probably his experiences in the courtroom and the influence of his old friends (presumably Phoenix). Ray adds that "that person" will also be surprised by Edgeworth's change.

With the hatchet buried, Ray reveals himself to be the head of Edgeworth Law Offices. This understandably confuses Kay, so Edgeworth explains to her that Ray was an assistant to his deceased father, Gregory Edgeworth. Who's also the one Ray's been referring to as "that person". Ray explains that he took over Gregory's firm when he died and kept the name out of respect for him. He warns Edgeworth that he still doesn't trust him entirely; he'll have to prove he's changed. He claims that it's what Gregory would have wanted as well, and Edgeworth accepts. That settled, Ray asks Edgeworth what they should do now. Edgeworth recalls that the scream the prisoners heard yesterday came from the first person to find Knightley's body, and suggests that they have a word with him. Before leaving for the prison with Ray and Kay, he instructs Gumshoe to assist Sebastian and pass on any useful information he finds. "I'm really good at leaking investigation reports to defense attorneys!" Gumshoe assures him.

Edgeworth, Ray and Kay enter the prison, where they encounter a woman in a large fur coat and guard's hat. She wastes no taking up Ray's offer of an introductory hut - even going so far as to kiss him during it! - before introducing herself as Patricia Roland, the motherly warden of the prison. Edgeworth asks her if she was at the prison yesterday, and she informs him that she was attending an animal show held at the prison courtyard during that time, which Edgeworth remembers Elbird indirectly referring to. Patricia adds that the show lasted from 8AM to 10AM, the same time Knightley's body was discovered, leading Edgeworth to deduce that anyone who watched it has an alibi for the time of the murder.

Patricia leaves, and Edgeworth decides to resume his search for the prisoner who found the body. After questioning a nearby prisoner, Edgeworth is directed to the workroom, where he finds none other than Frank Sahwit, the first witness many of the series's fans will have cross-examined, and the first criminal they'll have caught. After a slight slip-up over the fact that he's not working as a prosecutor right now, Edgeworth begins his questioning by asking Sahwit where he was during the murder. Sahwit explains that he's currently training as a pet groomer as part of his rehabilitation, and was practicing his trade in the workroom. After saying this, he becomes visibly agitated, insisting that that's all that happened and there's nothing more he can do to help. Edgeworth immediately becomes suspicious at this, and decides to bring out the Logic Chessboard in order to find out what Sahwit's hiding.

Edgeworth quickly notices that Sahwit has far better control over his emotions than his previous opponents, and decides to look at how he phrases his words instead of his body language. He begins by asking if Sahwit's involved with the case. Sahwit says he isn't; he's an upright, model citizen who would never dream of getting involved in a murder plot. Edgeworth points out that if that were true, he wouldn't be in prison, and demands he tell what he knows. Sahwit angrily denies knowing anything, before remembering himself and calming down. Nevertheless, Edgeworth doesn't press the point, and Sahwit apologises for the outburst. Edgeworth in turn apologises for his rudeness, but remarks that he finds it odd that Sahwit knows nothing about the murder, and Sahwit nervously claims that he's not the one who found the body. To which Edgeworth points out that he never told Sahwit that they were looking for that person. He asks again if Sahwit was involved in the case; the man, visibly shocked at being caught out, claims it was just a hunch he had.

For his next move, Edgeworth decides to ask about Sahwit's movements during the murder, remarking that there should be no problems if Sahwit's claims of not being involved with it are true. Sahwit claims that there was a lot going on at the prison during that day, and Edgeworth asks what he was doing during that time. Sahwit claims that he was practing his pet grooming, as he mentioned earlier. Edgeworth asks if the murder caused a panic, but Sahwit claims it didn't, mentioning that he was able to hear someone's voice. Edgeworth guesses that it was a scream, before insisting once again that Sahwit knows something about the murder. To which Sahwit responds that while he heard someone's voice, he doesn't remember it very well. Keeping this in mind, Edgeworth goes back to the subject of what was going on in the prison, this time asking what the state of the facility was. Sahwit claims to not remember, but Edgeworth points out that he had admitted to hearing someone scream earlier. Sahwit again claims to not remember the voice well, and argues that he could have been mistaken. "Enough with your lies!" Edgeworth exclaims, prompting Sahwit to briefly get angry as he denies lying. Edgeworth says nothing, and Sahwit states that in any case, he was busy with his animal grooming. Edgeworth asks about his grooming skills, and Sahwit replies that he's very good at handling the animals, to the point that he was able to calm them down after they got frightened. Edgeworth asks why they were frightened, and goes on to suggest that the scream was responsible. He asks why Sahwit's trying so hard to hide this fact, and the agitated Sahwit admits to hearing a scream, but claims he's not trying to hide it.

Edgeworth asks Sahwit when he heard the scream, and Sahwit suddenly remembers (sound familiar?) that he was attending the animal show, and therefore didn't hear the scream. Edgeworth points out that that completely contradicts everything he's said up to this point. Sahwit almost snaps again, and Edgeworth keeps silent, prompting Sahwit to mention that he found the Animal Show enjoyable. Edgeworth asks what kind of animals were performing in the show. As if trying to slip up in the most noteworthy way possible, Sahwit claims there was a whale there, and Edgeworth immediately calls him out on it, guessing that he didn't see the show at all. He asks who the scream belonged to, but Sahwit claims that he was in the courtyard attending the animal show. Edgeworth reminds him that he's already rubbished that claim, and demands that he tell the truth. Sahwit insists that he didn't hear the scream of the person who discovered the body, and Edgeworth expresses surprise at this; why would he assume the scream came from that person, rather than the victim? He demands an explanation, and after Sahwit struggles to answer, he does so for him: Sahwit's the one who discovered the body and screamed.

Edgeworth requests that Sahwit testify. Sahwit claims that he was in Workroom B (the one right next to Workroom A, where Knightley was found) honing his skills, before he randomly decided to look through the window on Workroom A's door, and upon seeing Knightley's body, he screamed. He adds that he was in Workroom B for the whole day, aside from the prison roll calls at 7AM, noon and 9PM, during which times the workrooms were all searched. Edgeworth and Ray figure that since Knightley's body wasn't found during the 7AM roll call, he was murdered during the animal show, meaning that the culprit is someone who didn't attend it. Commencing his rebuttal, Edgeworth points out that Sahwit could not have peeked through the Workroom A window, because his bracelet would have prevented him from being able to leave Workroom B. Kay asks if this means that Sahwit wasn't the one who discovered the body, but Edgeworth suggests they get an explanation from the man himself

Sahwit explains that there's a trick to the bracelets and sensors he didn't mention earlier; as long as you don't take the hand with the bracelet through the sensors, you can step through them without triggering the bracelet, and leave the room to a limited extent. Edgeworth asks Sahwit what prompted him to leave Workroom B, and Sahwit claims that he heard a noise coming from Workroom A, and decided to investigate it. Edgeworth points out that if that were true, he should have seen the person who made the noise. Sahwit is shaken and makes no response, but after some pressing, he claims that he saw a large black dog biting Knightley's neck. Edgeworth presses Sahwit for more details, much to Ray and Kay's discomfort, and the prisoner mentions seeing Knightley's ring - specifically its snowflake insignia - on his motionless right hand, to which Edgeworth objects; Knightley's right hand was covered by the blanket, so it should have been impossible for Sahwit to see his ring in such detail, unless he entered the room and lifted the sheet up. Sahwit tries to argue that Knightley had moved his hand earlier, but Edgeworth points out that he was already dead when the dog bit him, making that impossible. He demands to know what Sahwit's hiding.

Sahwit loses it, doing his toupee throw once again, before raging at Edgeworth, who in turn argues that Sahwit has come off as very suspicious, seeing something that he shouldn't have been able to. He argues that Sahwit actually saw Knightley's body from inside Workroom A, seeing as he knew about Knightley's ring. Sahwit demands evidence that he was in the room at the time, insisting that he was next door grooming animals, even going so far as to borrow some rubber gloves. To which Edgeworth presents the pink glove from earlier, and mentions that Sahwit only seems to have one glove on him right now. Sahwit argues that the glove could have come from anywhere, so Edgeworth suggests they check the glove for prints. Sahwit lets out a scream of rage...but Ray then mentions that something's still off: Sahwit could have easily refuted Edgeworth's arguments if he had just pointed out that he was unable to enter the workroom because of his bracelet. Yet for some reason, he didn't. After some questioning, Sahwit calms down and confesses; his bracelet was damaged when he fell over a few days earlier, and it stopped triggering the sensors. Edgeworth remarks that if the bracelets can be damaged that easily, the prison has a security problem.

Edgeworth informs a nearby guard of the defective bracelet, and Ray accuses Sahwit of Knightley's murder, pointing out that the aforementioned bracelet would allow him to go anywhere he pleased within the prison. Sahwit denies it, insisting that all he did was find the body and check it for valuables. When the other prisoners started to return from the animal show, he went back to Workroom B and let out a scream to deceive everyone, accidentally leaving his glove behind as he did so. Edgeworth states that, regardless of whether or not Sahwit's the killer, there's still the question of how Knightley was able to move between his cell in the detention center and the prison. Recalling the black dog, Edgeworth asks Sahwit if there were any other prisoners who missed out on the animal show, and Sahwit answers that there's just one. It quickly turns out that Edgeworth's very familiar with this prisoner, and had suspected his involvement since he first saw the dog. He asks if he can meet with him, causing Sahwit to get nervous. When Kay asks for an explanation, Sahwit answers that the prisoner in question is the facility's oldest inmate, and a very special case, but he won't say any more than that. He warns the group to avoid him if they value their lives, but he nevertheless directs them to the special cell currently holding the prisoner.

Edgeworth, Kay and Ray head over to the special cell, where they (and we) get our introduction to Sirhan Dogen, a legendary blind assassin whom Edgeworth caught a long time ago. He's known for using sharp knives and a vicious dog as weapons, and his appearance is always accompanied by the sound of a bell, which is usually the last thing his victims ever hear. The black dog's also there; turns out he's Anubis, Dogen's guide dog and partner in crime. Dogen greets the man who bought him down as if he were an old acquaintance, and Edgeworth informs the assassin about their suspicions of Anubis. Dogen of course denies it, asking if their witness is reliable, and Edgeworth admits to himself that the assassin has a point, though he wonders if Dogen actually knows who the witness is. Edgeworth then asks for Dogen's alibi during the animal show, with Dogen answering that he was in his cell, pursuing his hobby of whittling wooden carvings, of which he has a lot in his cell. Edgeworth questions why a prisoner would be allowed hammers and chisels, but Dogen claims that the warden gave him special permission to have them. He shows the group his latest work: a chessboard and a full set of pieces to go with it, explaining that he's taken up correspondence chess since the start of his incarceration. Interestingly, he's currently in the middle of one such game.

Edgeworth asks Dogen if he knew the identity of the murder victim. The assassin admits that he does, demonstrating to Edgeworth that he knows about everything going on in the prison. He remarks that Knightley may have been fortunate, since he was able to avoid being punished for his crime, but oddly enough, Dogen assumes this crime to be attempting to assassinate President Huang. Edgeworth and Kay are both understandably surprised to hear this - Edgeworth suspecting an attempt to coverup the fake assassination scheme - which in turn surprises Ray, who was under the same impression as Dogen regarding Knightley's crime. Edgeworth realises that the P.I.C. took him off the case in order to allow Sebastian to indict Knightley for attempted assassination, and maintain the coverup.

Dogen isn't surprised about what happened to Knightley, having learnt of his continued insistence that he was no assassin. A short debate ensues, in which Edgeworth insists that the courts are supposed to reveal the truth, but Dogen points out that that's not always the case, even claiming that some of his fellow prisoners were imprisoned on false charges. "Leaving the truth in the care of the court is dangerous." he remarks, and Edgeworth is reminded of Shi-Long Lang's distrust of prosecutors and the courts. Dogen states that Edgeworth's reasoning alone can't be trusted, but assures the prosecutor that he's not the only one who suspects he's behind Knightley's murder; Sebastian, Courtney and Patricia all came and questioned him yesterday. They also searched the entire prison for the murder weapon, but failed to find anything. Having said all that he wants to, Dogen has Anubis scare off Edgeworth, Ray and Kay. Edgeworth assures him that they'll meet again, and Dogen states that he'll be waiting.

Leaving the special cell, Edgeworth finds Kay cowering behind an ornamental rock, though Ray is still absent. Edgeworth and Kay decide to carry on the investigation regardless, with Edgeworth deciding to start by finding out how Knightley got into the prison while avoiding the tight security. They head back to the detention center, only to overhear a distraught Patricia talking about Dogen refusing to co-operate with her, even after she went to the trouble of having evidence transferred from the precinct. Patricia catches Edgeworth, and explains that she meets with all the prisoners for one-to-one sessions in her office, down a hallway between the detention center cells and the huge door to the prison. She then leaves to feed Ally, one of her pets, and Edgeworth and Kay head over to Knightley's cell. Inside, Edgeworth finds a correspondence chess sheet on Knightley's desk, and notices that the pieces depicted on it are in the exact same positions as the pieces on Dogen's chessboard, leading him to deduce that Dogen and Knightley were playing against each other. Heading over to the cell's bed, Edgeworth notices a torn newspaper, and a clean patch on the otherwise dusty floor, and figures that part of the newspaper was torn off and used as a cleaning rag for the floor. Edgeworth then sees a mirror in the cell, and noticing a reflection of a security camera in it, asks a guard to go and check the footage.

Before the guard returns, Edgeworth remarks that they've found a connection between Dogen and Knightley. Edgeworth checks the footage with the guard's "portable playback device" and sees a man walking about in the cell before getting attacked by a dark shape. Though unable to see the man's face, Edgeworth figures that he's seeing Knightley getting mauled by Anubis in the holding cell, and further deduces that the floor was wiped to conceal bloodstains. He tells the guard to get Gumshoe to check the cell for blood, and he and Kay leave to talk to the other guards. Back in the detention center hallway, they run into none other than Shi-Long Lang, who's here for no special reason, or so he tells Edgeworth. Kay observes that he's not accompanied by his 100-man army of investigators this time around, but Lang quickly changes the subject to the whole assassination business with Huang. Edgeworth mentions his surprise that Lang's not more involved with the security of his own president, prompting Lang to explain that Huang doesn't trust the Zheng Fa police, for all the good it did him. Edgeworth asks if Lang and his huge team of subordinates could have done a better job, but Lang reveals that he no longer has them. He insists it's no concern of Edgeworth's, and proceeds to take his leave.

With Lang gone, Edgeworth talks to the two nearby guards, learning from one of them that Anubis didn't pass through the detention center. The other informs Edgeworth that one of his uniforms was stolen from his locker. That done, Edgeworth and Kay are rejoined by Ray, who brings with him some new information: Two days ago, Knightley attacked a guard and knocked him out in an apparent jailbreak attempt, with the keys to his cell disappearing during the incident. A few things are odd, however; no jailbreak by Knightley was observed, Knightley denied stealing the keys after the incident, and said keys are currently unaccounted for.

Before they can discuss it further, Sebastian and Courtney show up. After some words are exchanged about Edgeworth's current role, Edgeworth asks the duo why they arrested Simon. Courtney tries to refuse, but Sebastian takes it as a challenge and gives his reasoning behind the arrest. It's little more than "We found traces of Simon somewhere. I am the best." Edgeworth asks for more details, and after some pressure, Sebastian explains that they found Simon's fingerprints on Knightley's chessboard. Edgeworth points out that Simon was the one who sent Knightley the chessboard in the first place, so it's only natural that his fingerprints would be on it. He suggests that Sebastian was too hasty to arrest Simon. Sebastian tries to explain - after taking his sweet time figuring out what Edgeworth was saying -.but Courtney overrules him, suggesting that he instead tell Edgeworth his reasoning regarding the murder weapon.

Sebastian explains that while the murder weapon is obviously a sharp metal object, the prison tightly controls such items, and so he reasoned that the chessboard was used to smuggle the weapon inside, with Simon's fingerprints proving his role in both the smuggling and the stabbing. Edgeworth examines the chessboard, and sure enough, there's a secret compartment in it big enough to hold a knife. He nevertheless points out the security gates with metal detectors at the detention center and prison entrances; anyone trying to get a weapon through them would be caught, but Courtney informs him that detention center post is checked differently, without a metal detector. Beginning his rebuttal - or as Courtney puts it, his cross-examination - Edgeworth presses Sebastian's point about the chessboard, pointing out that no weapon was found at the crime scene. Sebastian suggests that Simon hid the weapon somewhere in the prison, but Edgeworth reminds him that he and Patricia searched the prison earlier and fond nothing, and suggests that the search was poorly carried out. After some coddling from Courtney, Sebastian suggests that Simon took the weapon with him when he left the prison, but Edgeworth reminds him of the security gates at the entrances, which would have made doing so impossible. Courtney asks where the murder weapon could be if it hasn't left the prison, and Edgeworth suggests that it's still inside, with Sebastian and Patricia missing it because of their mistaken assumption that the weapon was a sharp metal object. Courtney asks what the weapon was if that's the case, and Edgeworth presents the video of Knightley being attacked by Anubis.

Edgeworth argues that the murder took place in the detention center, and Knightley was moved to Workroom A afterwards. Courtney points out that he hasn't explained how Anubis could move between the detention center and prison, to which Edgeworth argues that she and Sebastian have yet to do the same for Simon...but then Courtney plays her trump card. She reveals that Simon works at the Berry Big Circus, who just so happen to be the hosts of the prison's animal show; Simon was subsequently able to enter the prison as a member of the show staff! Edgeworth's beaten, and Courtney warns him that she was already doubting his ability as a prosecutor, and that he better not go up against her again if he values his prosecutor's badge. She also tells him to drop the defense attorney act; unlike the prosecutor's path, it requires him to trust his clients unconditionally, yet he didn't even know Simon's job. That said, she and Sebastian leave.

Talking with Ray and Kay, Edgeworth remarks that he was wrong about Simon being unable to enter the prison, and that they'll have to do some more investigating.
