Ethan jumped in to stop the man and beat him within an inch of his life. The woman ran off and Ethan found himself at Scotland Yard giving a statement to Inspector Hemlock Stone.

Merely out of curiosity he lifted it out to feel its weight. As he went to return the glove to its box the gauntlet seemed to come alive of its volition and pulled itself onto his left hand.
