Dante opts it a soon-to-be-delivered pizza. Morrison then tells Dante that he told the owner, Andy, not to deliver pizza to Dante until he clears his bill. He then flips a coin, stating he will pay all of Dante's bill If he wins. Dante bets on Heads, but loses. As Dante leaves, Morrison gives him a guitar case for his “show.”

On a train ride, Dante and Patty converse once again. Dante mistakes Patty for looking at a picture of a boy in her locket. However, she reveals she's looking at a picture of her mother whom she claims is more beautiful than his "girlfriend". She then also reveals that she remembers little about her and that the hospital director told her that she died from an illness while she was still a baby. Suddenly, a man looking for a seat appears and comments on how Patty's and her mother are beautiful. Dante questions why he doesn’t sit in any of the many other open seats, but Patty offers him the seat beside her. Dante warns him that he may not live long sitting there. After passing through a tunnel, the man is mysteriously killed. Patty is shocked and calls for her mother repeatedly. The Conductor questions Dante, who reveals that as the train passed through the tunnel, there was a demon present and kills it. As they walk away from the train station, Patty reminisces on the event. Dante urges her to keep going and she obliges.

Dante arrives at a hotel and orders a room for the night when Patty demands to know where she can meet the woman on a nearby poster, believing that she is her mother. Dante then reminds him that she told him her mother passed away. Later that night, Patty tells Dante she heard the same hospital director say that she was targeted by demons and actually went missing in an accident. Not wanting Patty to also be targeted, her mother left her at an orphanage. Patty expresses concerns about being killed by demons. Dante responds with a "who knows?". Patty tells Dante that she wants to use the money to give the orphanage she was in sweets and clothes even though she knows what the other orphans really want is to meet their parents. Dante agrees with her and tells her to go to sleep. Dante wakes up in the middle of the night to find that Patty is missing. Dante then questions the manager, who claims not to know where she went. He then shoots at a poster, revealing it to be a demon in disguise and continues to question the manager.

Sid reveals himself

The "hotel manager" reveals his sinister intentions.

As they ride in a car, Dante questions the manager on who asked him to spy on Patty.

Dante arrives in time to save Patty. The hotel manager then appears to kill her, but is scared away by Dante.
