Previous Chapter - Local: The Man Who Wouldn't Cry
It is 2:00 PM on December 31, 1931. Over at Pennsylvania Station, Berga Gandor is quite irritated that the Flying Pussyfoot is two hours late. The Gandor brothers then briefly discuss the personalities of the people they are picking up along with Firo Prochainezo, Ennis, and Maiza Avaro.
The Flying Pussyfoot - or at least, the train that has replaced it - finally arrives at the station. Maiza ends up revealing to his companions that the terrorist Huey Laforet is actually an immortal. The group watches the passengers disembark, including a woman in coveralls (whom Ennis initially thinks might be her companions' friend Claire Stanfield), a Grey Magician (whom the Gandor brothers think might be Maiza's immortal friend that he's come to pick up); and Jacuzzi Splot and his gang.
