  • In London, Jonathan Joestar travels to Ogre Street, where he is challenged by a number of thugs, led by the criminal Robert E.O. Speedwagon. When Speedwagon sees JoJo is not using lethal force against he and his crew, he swears fealty to JoJo. JoJo meets an apothecary.7
  • In London, Dio Brando, carrying the mystical stone mask, runs into a couple of drunk Londoners. He murders one of them, and then forces the mask onto the other, which impales his head. The man is turned into a vampire, and nearly kills Dio, but is destroyed with the rising sun.8
  • Dio Brando returns home, and is confronted by JoJo. George Joestar, R.E.O. Speedwagon, and the police show up during the confrontation, and Dio is seemingly defeated. He attempts to stab JoJo, but instead fatally wounds George, who blocks the attack. George's blood activates the stone mask, which Dio places on his own face. Shot by the police, he is believed killed until he revives as a vampire.
