I have a feeling every episode will have that one meme moment or even a few meme moments. Like Hermes' flaunting her panties in the bathroom with the prisoner janitor. Or even Episode 1's M-word moment with Jolyne.

This episode focused on Ermes, the weakest so far imo

Her stand is an interesting and unique one, I really want to know how she'll use it

Hermes is great. And I love the Highway to Hell Stand, it's a really unique ability and the sound design was excellent. Ngl it was funny how McQueen was switching from excited to suddenly attempting suicide lol

My favorite episode of the batch, but it was granted since McQueen is one of my favorite villains in Stone Ocean, lol.

Really liked the voice acting for him and how the music constantly shifted depending on his moods.

Good to see Hermes again and she has awakened a very useful stand. She seems quite smart too, since she used her stand ability quite efficiently in such a short time.

Did nobody get the Part 5 callback? With the Highway to Hell guy, the dude says that he killed a girl who was jumping off the roof with his shotgun. Specifically sounds like episode 39 of Golden Wind.

He was given the stand by whitesnake so his stand disc ejected once he was defeated.

That pendant doing its job, and this time we have Hermes raising a stand ability within her.

Well have to say she had some real bad luck this whole episode and it's Whitesnake at his deeds again, but thankfully she got that disc out of that man in the end.

Errmes' stand Kiss gonna come in handy for duplicating money, I love that she's thinking so tactically after only becoming aware of it this episode. Copying the mops as an attack and burning the sticker.

Where did the arrowhead piece go then? She sold it along with the pendant to Jolyne's cellmate and she got her stand, but she doesn't have it.

McQueen's stand Highway to Hell...giving a suicidal person a stand that shares damage with others is horrifically apt. (I presume that's why we saw the discs? Since it wasn't his stand originally).

This episode/ chapter inspired a lot of media. The weird guy from Platinum End was inspired by Mcqueen. And Hidan from Naruto was inspired by Highway to Hell. Plus Persona ripped off the Persona concept from Stands. But everybody knows that one at this point.

I loved the Jojo pose Ermes made on the staircase. And she should fit in well un this iteration of the Jojo team. I can't wait to meet the next member of the group.

That Janitor was crazy as hell and dealing his stand was literally a Highway to Hell(AC/DC). It seems like Ermes was another person that got a stand after touching that pendant called Smack/Kiss(I hate that band and fuck Gene Simmons)

A whole ep dedicated for Ermes, nice change of pace, but even better knowing that she and Jolyne will soon inevitably reunited.

Speaking of which... Ermes' stand ability is awesome, as always being smart allows her to utilize various actions to harm her opponent, but from a simpler point of view, she could also use the stickers to double a stack of cash, trade it to someone else in the prison than leave before the recipient remove the stickers, unless ofc there's a limitation which in most cases, there obviously is.

I was wondering the same question. According to JoJo wiki, the impact from guy's heads merging back together knocked him out and made the stand disc eject, therefore disabling it's ability. It's impressive that Ermes managed to think this through based only on a previous instance of knocking the discs out of Mcqueen and Emporio briefly explaining Stand powers to her.

Suicidal janitor go brrrrr.

Thunder McQueen tries really hard to kill himself off. This has a negative effect on those that witness it cuz it is impacting Ermes.
Highway to Hell inflicts pain on Ermes to the point of electrocution. But the Kiss stand saves her ass. McQueen took a sticker up the ass and gets knocked out. Ermes took his stand disc and skrrt outta there.
