TG theory: Hide is related to Pierrot??? Possible leak from TG:A episode 1

(updated) 

This is a close up shot of Hide’s bike captured on TG:A episode A which is called “Pierrot”. Is it a mere coincidence that Hide has always been interested in Ghouls all along and has a particularly strong acumen in ghoul investigations, and knew so much already about Kaneki and managed to install a tracking device on him? Or is it mere coincidence it’s the name of the studio? 

Remember back in the manga, in one of Kaneki’s flash backs, Hide was a ‘witch’s servant’ during the school play. Is it just a mere coincidence? Tread cautiously because Ishida has dropped many subtal hints and details in the pass and this makes me skeptical of Hide’s background and motives. 

From TG, he seemed to be awake during Kaneki & Yoshimura’s conversation, and therefore likely overheard their conversation. 

Many mysteries still surround Hide - despite he’s one of Kaneki’s closest friend, nothing is still known about his background, his family and etc. If indeed he is a ‘witch’s servant’, I speculate he may have ties with Pierrot, and even Kanou - so he may be involved in setting up Kaneki with Rize, his organ transplant, and etc. But right now, these are only guesses and too early to tell. Another point to note is that he has been working with CCG for some time, as even the higher rank officers seem to like him and he has ways to get obtain lots of CCG information about ghouls and Kaneki.

In the final chapter, it seems Itori has ways to obain CCG information and how is that possible so quickly? She herself, or someone who works as Pierrot’s informat (possible a CCG mole), is involved. I suspect that one person with such means and intelligence, could be Hide. 

If Hide was really working with Pierrot, this is so tragic for poor Kaneki…

In the end, who will be his real friend? (ME! ME! ME! Wouldn’t it be me??!!)

Last year I posted pics of my location scouting effort to find Steve’s apartment and it got way more notes than I ever expected. Apparently a lot of people wanted to know where it is!

It was actually honest research – I needed to scout the building carefully so I’d know where Steve would leave dead drop letters for Bucky in Things We Lost in the War

I’m back in DC and my hotel this time is two blocks away. So I stopped by like a pilgrim to Mecca when I stepped out to get the lay of the land. 

That’s the angles we see in the movie plus the front in more detail & where Steve parks his bike. Close up it doesn’t look like a residence; it’s apparently the Assn for American Law Schools.
