Added DiffLines:

* RevealingInjury: After the Wolf burns its paw by stepping on consecrated ground, Valerie's on the look out for anyone with the same injury on their hand. When she sees [[spoiler: Peter has covered his hand with a glove, she believes he's the Wolf and shanks him]]. Subverted in that particular case, [[spoiler: Peter's covered hand was unrelated (though it's never explained [[FrideLogic just why he's going round with one glove on]])]], though played straight when Valerie sees that the real Wolf has a burnt hand, confirming their identity.
