核心句型:
He has been left holding the bag.

他一个人背下了黑锅。

left holding the bag 是相当古老的习惯用语,从1760年起就流传了,但没有确切出典,有一种猜测是这里的bag可能是装赃款赃物的袋子,同伙听到了警报都走了,就剩拿着袋子的那个人被抓,人赃俱获。现在这个短语的意思是:“替别人背黑锅,或独自承担错误和罪责”。因此,当美国人说"He has been left holding the bag."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"He has been made into a scapegoat."、"He has been unjustly blamed."、"He has been left to take full responsibility."。

情景对白:
Terry: How could the boss be so cruel to Jim? I feel really sorry for him.

泰瑞:老板怎么可以对吉姆这么无情?我真为他难过。

Benjamin: Yeah, me too. He has been left holding the bag.

本杰明:是啊,我也一样。他一个人背下了黑锅。

③He can't be the leaker because he is a newcomer who knows nothing here.

他不可能是泄密者,他只是个新人,什么也不了解。

④He should have spilled his guts.
