A fight with Joe leaves Louis badly scarred; Roy plays a final practical joke on Ethel; Prior wrestles the Angel and then addresses a review board in Heaven; Harper heads out West; Prior, outliving his diagnosis, pays a visit to his favorite angel and vows to keep living--free of secrets.
Heartbreaking and surprising revelations herald the second chapter. Louis is trying to assist his lover, Prior, who is now very ill. Cohn and Joe meet up for a drink at a fancy bar. The two men have some things in common - they are both lawyers and avowed Republicans, but are they ready to admit to each other that they are both gay? As they converse about politics, Cohn starts to pat and caress Joe's shoulders and arms. The cowardly Louis can't stand to see Prior wasting away. He visits him one last time in his hospital room, and tells Prior that he's leaving. Joe finally admits the truth to his wife, Harper, but she actually seems to have known it all along. Prior gets a visit from an angel while he suffers alone in his apartment.
In the final chapter, Prior is accompanied to the hospital by Joe's mother, Hannah. Joe's mother is tremendously compassionate, and quick with a response. Harper finally leaves Joe, and she flies to San Francisco. Four years later, Louis, Belize, Prior and Hannah meet up at the Bethesda fountain in Central Park, and they share their dreams of a world where hypocrisy is dead, and where the will to live is strengthened by love and tolerance.
