When Giorno returns from Polpo's cell, her suspicion rises after Giorno's shock of there being another body search. While Giorno hides the flame of the lighter Polpo gave him within his closed palms, the guard pats him down and says he's all clear and free to go. Just as Giorno becomes relieved, she says he also needs to open his hands because she has to check them. Giorno quickly uses Gold Experience to transform the lighter into a flower.
