Dorian rides in the hansom and thinks about where he is going: an opium den.
It takes a long time, and he recalls what Harry had said to him so long ago, that the only way to cure the soul was through the senses. Dorian finds a broken house, and enters. There are people in various drug-induced states all around him. He finds Adrian Singleton. A woman comes up and tries to talk to him, and he gives her money. He tells Adrian that he is going to a different place, where the opium is better, and tells Adrian to let him know if he needs anything. As he is leaving, the woman calls him "Prince Charming." A sailor hears this, gets up, and follows him out.
Dorian walks and as he is enter to the other opium den, James grabs him. He has been looking to revenge Sibyl's death, trying to find a man by the one thing he knows, that he was called "Prince Charming." He gets out a gun and tells Dorian that he has one minute to agreed for what he has done. Dorian asks him how long ago his sister was killed; when James says eighteen years, Dorian shows him his face.
