Schaalman finds himself in the apartment building with the tin ceiling in the lobby. When he looks at the ceiling, he's struck by an image of a beautiful palace made of glass, and he passes out on the floor.
He struggles to get up and continue his journey, even though he's not really sure what the heck he's looking for.
The Golem decides to visit her husband at the Sheltering House, but when she gets there, she realizes that he's learned a bit about her true nature.
He freaks out, as you would if you found out your wife was made of clay.
His anger makes the Golem angry and, afraid she'll hurt him, she orders him to run.
He Forrest Gumps his way right out of there, and when she looks at the materials he was reading, she realizes that Joseph Schall is the man who made her.
Across town, Saleh goes to the Jinni's apartment to crash. As he starts to relax, though, there's a knock at the door.
It's Schaalman. He forces his way in and, before he can ask where Ahmad is, realizes that the man in the apartment is possessed.
He puts his hands on either side of Saleh's face and pushes his way inside, accessing a memory of the Jinni telling Saleh that he'll be in the Bowery.
Saleh crumples to the floor, and Schaalman leaves.
On the rooftops of the Bowery, the Jinni has an idea, but the crafty little bugger doesn't tell us what it is.
Saleh actually recovers from his mental invasion and, miraculously, he can see again.
One of the things he sees in the Jinni's apartment is his menagerie of homemade figurines.
He takes one, and decides to stroll over to the Bowery—if he happens to bump into the Jinni, maybe he'll warn him. ("Oh, hey, nice to see you, a crazy old man with psychic powers is after you.")
Schaalman ends up back at Conroy's tobacco shop and bumps smack dab into the Jinni.
He grabs him by the wrist and—kaboom—all the windows in Conroy's shop explode.
