Walking Heart (story arc)
At the Higashikata's, Damo is interrogating Norisuke to get information about Josefumi's whereabouts, knowing for sure that he survived. Hato cannot believe that Damo is harming her family, despite what Josuke tells her. Not wanting his family to die, Norisuke reveals to Damo that Josefumi could be Josuke, elaborating that he was found near the springs where Yoshikage Kira died without memories and that the Locacaca's power may have been involved.
Damo starts going to the foyer to confirm that Josuke is Josefumi, while also kicking Hato out of his way. Damo attacks Josuke after he is certain that an equivalent exchanged happened, and defeats him. Damo suddenly spots Hato outside of the house, a bubble having plundered her away through the chimney. A heartbroken Hato then repeatedly impales Damo with a stretched heel, retracting it back faster than Vitamin C can soften it. Damo begs Hato to stop as she summons her Stand and climbs to the roof.
Josuke concludes that Damo is the head of the Rock Humans smuggling the Locacaca, and is the last member alive. Josuke warns Damo to leave or Hato will defeat him. Damo is still sure that he can defeat Hato while he reflects that he can profit off the Locacaca. Hato is heard walking on the roof by Damo and following him.
Searching a toolbox, Damo takes a lighter and the softened Norisuke, then proceeds to throw the latter into the chimney and set him on fire. He plans to exploit Hato's overconfidence in her safety from Vitamin C and use Norisuke to infect her with his power again, stealthily going away from the chimney as Norisuke burns and Vitamin C's fingerprints reach the outside on bits of Norisuke. As Norisuke's cries bait Hato near him, Damo declares his victory but is suddenly impaled in the head from through the roof. Damo discovers too late that Josuke has hidden bubbles into his cut up liver and used them to signal his position. Impaled again by a heartbroken Hato, Damo has no choice but to flee, and everyone returns to normal, safe and sound.
Josuke spots Damo and follows the Rock Human, eventually cornering him. Damo begs Josuke to spare him, reminding him of Holy and her illness which the Locacaca can cure, but is unceremoniously punched in the head by Soft & Wet, finishing him off. Josuke now knows his former identity, Josefumi Kujo. Unbeknownst to him, the whole scene was observed by Jobin, who witnessed Damo being killed.
At a prison called "Stone Ocean", a woman passes through the release procedure, being handed all the items she possesses as well as the payment for her work during the last 15 years. After putting on her clothes, the woman takes a cellphone from between two cards of her card deck and calls Jobin to pick her up, wishing to make her release a surprise to her family. Putting the phone back into the deck, the woman is revealed as Kaato Higashikata.
Meanwhile, Joshu, who was drained and lost in a sewer earlier, emerges from a sewage pipe somewhere outside the house.
