She thinks her son was killed by underhanded tactics, and she swears to kill her son's murderers. Jojo and his group are heading towards Varanasi by bus. Polnareff is busy chatting with Nena and telling her that Hol Horse is a bad man. Meanwhile, Joseph scratches his right arm where Nena's blood had splattered on. He notices his bug bite has swollen. Polnareff comments that it starts to look like a face. Joseph visits a hospital where a doctor tells him that they have to cut it off to prevent the poison from spreading. The doctor tries to cut the wound, but the flesh bud kills the doctor by turning the scalpel on him. The Empress on Joseph's arm tells Joseph that he mess him up.

When Joseph tries to cut off the Empress with his scalpel, Empress takes the scalpel with its mouth and slices off Joseph's pinky. The Empress brings up that only a Stand can beat a Stand and remarks that Joseph's Hermit Stand is useless. Then, Joseph tries to run away from the clinic. A nurse walks by and sees the doctor dead. Empress starts shouting that Joseph has done the deed, causing the nurse to call the police. Outside, Joseph tries to slam Empress into the wall. Empress sprouts arms and grabs the bars, and it starts yelling to alert the cops. Joseph uses Hamon Over Drive which doesn't work. He then uses Hermit powers to break free.

In the city, Polnareff still continues to talk with Nena, even flirting with her. Nena points to hotel in order to distract Polnareff from seeing Joseph.
