A hushed argument. "Hook, wait, come back here". Hook answers "Wait nothing. You are nuts, crazy". And then "No, no don't". Hook is hit over the head with a heavy blunt instrument. His attacker speaks, his voice becoming more and more venomous "I'm sorry Hook, very sorry, but I had to have it, I'm going to have it! And once you are dead, you'll never miss it!"
This is the first show of the series. A musician loses his hand in an accident, kills a pickpocket and forces a doctor to graft the man's hand onto his arm.
