    Joseph Joestar
    Voiced by: Benjamin Diskin
    Joseph is a trickster, less honorable than his grandfather Jonathan, and constantly scheming ways to humiliate his opponents. But it’s this scheming nature where his intelligence shines through, as he is usually able to predict his opponent’s moves and nature just by observing them. He is now the last Hamon user standing against Kars, and it will take every ounce of his cunning personality to prevail against increasing odds against him.

    Elizabeth Joestar (Alias: “Lisa Lisa”)
    Namesake: Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam (band)
    Voiced by: Wendee Lee
    Lisa Lisa is a master teacher of Hamon, having been raised and trained by Straizo ever since she was saved from the ship that Jonathan died on. A seemingly cold woman on the surface, she does have a kind heart, and cares deeply for her students, especially for Joseph whom, unknown to him, she shares a complicated history with. Following Caesar’s death, she and Joseph were the only ones left to oppose Kars in his quest, but she was quickly incapacitated during her one-on-one fight with him.

    [​IMG]
    Kars
    Namesake: The Cars (band)
    Voiced by: Will Barrett
    The sole survivor of the ancient Pillar Men and the inventor of the Stone Masks. He seeks the Red Stone of Aja, which will unlock great power within himself to become the ultimate lifeform. With his “Light Mode”, he can produce blades from his body which refract blinding light, with sharp tiny claws along the edge moving faster than any chainsaw.

    [​IMG]
    Rudol von Stroheim
    Namesake: Erich von Stroheim (actor)
    Voiced by: Dan Woren
    Thanks to the finest technology German science has to offer, Major von Stroheim was revived as a fully-functioning cyborg soldier. With impressive weaponry and his German pride, Stroheim is dedicated towards stopping the threat of the Pillar Men once and for all.

    [​IMG]
    Robert E.O. Speedwagon
    Namesake: REO Speedwagon (band)
    Voiced by: Keith Silverstein
    Following Jonathan’s death, Speedwagon set out west for America and struck it rich in the oil industry. With his newfound wealth, he built the Speedwagon Foundation, an organization which secretly investigates the paranormal and is dedicated towards assisting the Joestar family in whatever way possible.

    [​IMG]
    Smokey Brown
    Namesake: Smokey Robinson (musician)
    Voiced by: Robbie Daymond
    Smokey is a homeless NYC street kid who has recently become friends with Joseph. Being black during the 1930’s, he faces persecution everywhere he goes, but has been taken in by Joseph and Erina who see him as an equal.

    [​IMG]
    Erina Joestar
    Voiced by: Michelle Ruff
    Joseph’s grandmother and widow of Jonathan. On the outside, she is a strict no-nonsense woman, but underneath shows the same kindness towards the less fortunate that her husband displayed.

    Episode 24
    "The Ties That Bind JoJo"
    Chapters adapted: 107-108​

    Last time
    Wamuu unleashed his Final Mode attack, Gathering Gale. Even as the force of his inhaled air started peeling away his own body, the Pillar Man released a stream of wind capable of cutting stone towards JoJo. After a failed attempt at attacking him with a firebomb, JoJo struck at Wamuu with Caesar's flaming bandana, which Wamuu shredded with his wind. However, this was all part of JoJo's plan: the oil from the bomb and the burning embers of Caesar's bandana were inhaled by Wamuu, which caused him to explode from the inside.

    As Wamuu's wounds from the Ripple were fatal, JoJo gave him some of his blood to ease his passing as a sign of respect, similar to the respect Wamuu showed Caesar. When the other vampires suddenly attacked, Wamuu used the last of his strength to kill them, not wanting them to interfere until the end. Upon Wamuu's request, JoJo drank the antidote from his ring and disintegrated the Wedding Ring around his heart, allowing Wamuu to pass away with no regrets.

    It was then then time for Lisa Lisa's battle with Kars. At first, Lisa Lisa seemed to get the upper hand with her Ripple-infused scarf. However, Kars cheated by using a body double before he stabbed Lisa Lisa from behind - unlike Wammu, Kars has no respect for the honor of battle if it impedes his goals. After claiming the Red Stone of Aja for himself, Kars sent his vampire army after the weakened JoJo. However, he was rescued by Stroheim and his men, along with Speedwagon, Smokey and the Speedwagon Foundation Special Forces, who used ultraviolet lights to fight off the vampires whilst JoJo went to face Kars. As Kars uses Lisa Lisa to force JoJo into a vulnerable position, Smokey remarked on an incredible revelation: that Lisa Lisa is, in fact, JoJo's mother.

    This week
    With Lisa Lisa incapacitated, Joseph is the only one left between Kars and the Red Stone of Aja. As the final battle gets underway, Speedwagon recalls the tragic past of Joseph’s father George Joestar II and his wife Elizabeth.


    JOJO'S JUKEBOX

    As the complicated relationship between Lisa Lisa and the Joestar family is revealed, this week’s Jukebox selection is “Lost in Emotion” by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam.



    Notes:
    • Next week, Toonami will be sending Part 2 off with a full hour-long finale, preempting Tokyo Ghoul.
    • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is leaving Toonami after next week, with Attack on Titan Season 2 replacing it. However, there’s been heavy hints from Jason DeMarco that Part 3, Stardust Crusaders, will premiere once Attack on Titan ends.
    • The manga chapters which this episode covers can be found in Battle Tendency volume 4, presently available in hardcover from Viz Media.
    • The first season of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, covering the first 26 episodes, is available on DVD from Warner Home Video. Viz Media will be releasing the first season on Blu-Ray and DVD this summer.
    Please, no spoilers about upcoming events and future arcs.

    Last time on JoJo: Suddenly, that scene where JoJo peeped at Lisa Lisa taking a bath becomes uncomfortable to some viewers (also, Lisa Lisa makes for a good air guitar).

    Fun fact: George Joestar ll is the main character of a non canon fan written light novel called Jorge Joestar that was made for the 25th anniversary of JoJo. Araki did the cover's art. Don't look it up, there are spoilers in it for Parts 2-7(Part 8 isn't included though), it also gets really weird.

    So he'll have friends to go home with when Lisa Lisa dies.

    Kars nearly threw her out of the Bounce Lounge.

    Uhh...any one of you guys wanna step in and help...

    A plan so cunning you could stick a tail on it a call it a weasel.

    A waste of a perfectly good scarf.

    And thus the deceiver becomes the deceived. Or the deceived becomes the deceiver. Or something.

    That must really hurt.

    Oh, Von Stroheim...never check to see if he's really dead.

    Don't die now! Your character just got some development!

    So she's Eliza-lizabeth.

    Geo-Geo's not so bizarre adventure.

    Cunning, dangerous, and looked like the wheelchair-bound mutant from The Hills Have Eyes.

    Hell hath no fury indeed.

    Even in death Dio is a dick.

    That which does not kill you makes you lonely and emotionally gutted.

    "There's no reason to not tell Jojo now!"

    Well, except for the fact that he peeped on her. And Lisa Lisa was apparently willing to let him die in the oil pit
