The following describes the truth of what happened behind-the-scenes in Banquet of the Golden Witch.

Culprit: Sayo Yasuda and Eva Ushiromiya as separate killers, without Sayo knowing Eva's involvement until near the end.

Accomplices: Terumasa Nanjo (Sayo's), Hideyoshi Ushiromiya (Eva's).

Before the murders: Sayo played the witch's part and gave Maria the letter.

The first twilight: Sayo killed Genji, Kumasawa and Gohda. She constructed the closed-room ring with them, Kinzo's corpse and dressing as both Shannon and Kanon. The first corpse found was Shannon's. Then, after everyone went away, she quickly dressed as Kanon, the last corpse. This gave off the illusion of a ring with six closed rooms.

After that, Eva solved the epitaph and discovered the gold. When Eva was returning to the mansion, she met Rosa (who also solved the epitaph). They talked about sharing the gold, but in fact Eva wanted to keep it for herself.

The second twilight: Rosa and Maria went to the garden and met Eva. Eva and Rosa disputed about the gold. The dispute turned into a full-blown fight, and Eva struck Rosa, causing her to fall over and stab herself on the metal thorn of the fence. Rosa died. Eva, turning around and seeing Maria's look of horror at Eva's having killed her mother, then grabbed Maria and strangled her to death. She then returned to Hideyoshi's side and pretended nothing had happened.

The fourth twilight, fifth, and sixth twilights: Rudolf and Kyrie suspected Eva, and planned to corner her. Eva, Hideyoshi, Rudolf and Kyrie went to the main mansion to get more food. When confronting them, Eva somehow convinced her husband to help her kill both Rudolf and Kyrie. They shot both. However, before dying, Kyrie used her last strength to shoot Hideyoshi.

The seventh and eighth twilights: Eva sedated the coffee she gave to Krauss and Natsuhi. She strangled them with a rope, and then moved their corpses to outside the mansion.

"Earth to earth. The obvious culprit wields a mutable blade." - Willard H. Wright

The ninth twilight: Sayo called Nanjo by telephone and ordered him to tell George she was alive. When George arrived where she was "dead", Sayo was pointing a gun at him. She killed him and pretended to be dead again. Jessica incriminated Eva and was blinded by accident when Eva's gun almost shot her in the face. Nanjo took care of her, while Battler was looking for Eva. Sayo then killed Nanjo, shooting him in the head. A while later, Sayo finally realised that Eva had already solved the epitaph, so by her promise, she shouldn't have murdered anyone. Feeling guilty for breaking her promise, Sayo tried to leave behind compensation by writing down "07151129", the bank PIN to the 1 billion yen she left behind for the victims' families. Sayo then played Kanon's role, telling Jessica not to touch him (because she would realise that "Kanon" was wearing a dress) and moving Jessica to another room. Finally alone with Battler, Eva killed him by shooting through his heart.

The tenth twilight: Eva escaped to Kuwadorian before the explosion. The bomb killed Sayo and Jessica.
