- With Lili gone, Greta is no longer interested in art—her muse has disappeared.
- Her lack of enthusiasm shows in her work, and her paintings are no longer selling.
- Carlisle, who walked in on Greta and Hans, thinks it would be a good idea for her to move on with Hans and leave Einar/Lili behind.
- But she can't abandon her husband, or Lili—she wants to wait to hear news from her.
- When news doesn't arrive, Greta goes to Dresden to find her. You go, girl.
- She arrives right after Lili's surgery and waits by her bedside for her to awake.
- Greta learns the operation to remove Einar's testicles was successful, and she is glad it worked, but she is also sad: "Once again Greta Waud was a widow" (22.73). She no longer has a husband.
- Bolk tells Greta that Einar was right: He is part woman.
- See, Einar had ovaries inside his abdomen, which might explain the mysterious bleeding.
- Bolk wants to try another surgery to graft tissue from healthy ovaries onto Lili's.
- Conveniently, there's a girl with a tumor who is about to die. Well, it's convenient for Lili, not for the girl, because Lili can take the tissue.
