After finding out that Speedwagon is alive, JoJo defends himself from one of Stroheim's men. Meanwhile, Stroheim awakens the Pillar Man, whom he dubs Santana, by sacrificing several prisoners in order to flood the chamber with blood. To test Santana, Stroheim sends a vampire after him and observes Santana absorbing it into his body as food. But Santana escapes, easily killing Stroheim's men by mimicking their gunfire. Only JoJo and his Ripple powers stand in Santana's way.
