Kakyoin is informed that the Speedwagon Foundation is taking over his medical treatment, allowing his eyes to heal faster. Meanwhile, as Jotaro's group arrive in Luxor, Joseph gets shocked by a strange rock with an electrical socket while visiting the bathroom. Joseph decides to have the group stay in Luxor for the night, unaware that he appears to be emitting a magnetic force, causing metallic objects to be drawn towards him. The next morning, Joseph quickly realizes he has become a human magnet as a result of yesterday's shock, causing anything metallic to become a potentially lethal weapon for him. This is revealed to be the work of Mariah, wielder of the magnetic Stand Bastet, who traps Joseph on an escalator, resulting in him almost becoming strangled to death before Avdol rescues him. Joseph and Avdol pursue Mariah into the ladies' restroom, only for Joseph's magnetism to get them into more trouble. As they continue their pursuit, Avdol realises that he has also come under Bastet's influence while stopping the escalator, with both he and Joseph becoming stuck together due to their magnetism.
