Stone Ocean - Chapter 8
Stone Free, Part 1 (ストーン・フリー その①, Sutōn Furī Sono 1), originally No Way Out... (追いつめられて…, Oitsumerarete...) in the WSJ release, is the eighth chapter of Stone Ocean and the six hundred second chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.
Jolyne's body continues returning to its original size, making her unable to fit through the bars into the main hallway. Goo Goo Dolls chases her, intent on killing her for leaving the rat corpse. Goo Goo Dolls lashes at her, but Jolyne entangles the Stand in string.
Goo Goo Dolls tears out of the string, wounding Jolyne's hand. She manages to squeeze out of the bars, but the Stand easily follows. Jolyne begins to understand the nature of Stands, and how they are the manifestation of the user's will. She jumps to another bar hanging from the wall, continuing to grow, entrapping her between the bar and the wall.
Goo Goo Dolls leaps onto Jolyne. It moves to kill her, but is knocked back into the wall. When it tries to attack again, it is once again knocked back. Jolyne opens her eyes to see the body of her Stand protecting her.
