Joe's mother, Hannah Pitt, has come all the way from Utah to see her son, who revealed the truth to her in a phone call days earlier. Having gotten lost in the homeless person riddled streets of the Bronx, she finally arrives at the Mormon Visitors' Center. Louis and Joe meet again on a nearby beach. Later, Louis meets up with Prior at Washington Square Park. Meanwhile at the hospital, Cohn, who is high on morphine, has an interesting conversation with the perceptive Nurse Belize. It leaves Cohn with the belief that Belize is the Angel of Death, so he asks him what Heaven looks like.
