Heavy Weather, Part 3 (ヘビー・ウェザー その③ Hebī Wezā Sono 3), originally Meeting (出会い Deai) in the WSJ release, is the one hundred twenty-seventh chapter of Stone Ocean and the seven hundred twenty-first chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.


The story of Weather Report and Enrico Pucci is revealed.

Several decades ago, in 1972 on the 5th of June, in a hospital from a small town, a woman who's newborn child died in her arms decided to secretly swap her deceased son with another child, who happened to have a twin brother with a twisted foot.

Several years later, a young Pucci suddenly trips while taking care of the church. He spots an intruder, who suddenly appears from behind and looks at Pucci's books, one of which was the tale of an adulterous clergyman. The intruder, who reveals himself as DIO, asks Pucci to let him stay inside the church until nightfall because he was "allergic" to sunlight. Surprisingly, Pucci believes DIO and let him stay, which aroused the latter's interest and curiosity. As a gift, DIO heals Pucci's twisted foot and gave him an Arrowhead. Mentioning the concept of "gravity", explained as a fated attraction between two people, DIO then disappeared in the shadows.

Enrico Pucci was born in a wealthy and prestigious family and lived a happy childhood with his younger sister, Perla. However, as he was taken to "Domenico's" grave, Pucci grew curious about his dead twin brother and asked himself why he lived and not his twin. One day, as he was cleaning the confession booth, the woman that took Domenico from them, now stricken with an incurable disease, came to confess that she swapped her child with one of the Pucci family's twins, unknowingly confessing to the very twin brother that she had stolen from, who is now armed with the knowledge that his brother is still alive.
