(1322-1325) Hrothgar: Sorrow has returned. Alas for the Danes! Aeschere is dead. He was Yrmenlaf’s elder brother And a soul mate to me, a true mentor
(1541-1543) He pitched his killer opponent to the floor But she rose quickly and retaliated, Grappled him tightly in her grim embrace.
(1885-1887) He was a peerless king Until old age sapped his strength and did him Mortal harm, as it has done so many.
This scene of Grendel's mother killing Aeschere, a close friend of Hrothgar, is a calling of a departure for Beowulf. As he sees the devastation in the King and the others after Grendel mother's attack he sees that he must defend these people and battle the monster.
Beowulf at this time is in "the belly of the whale." He has crossed over into the monsters territory, a place that he will not be able to expect what happens. Here he will fight Grendel's mother until she is dead and her death is represented by the climax of the hero's journey.
Here is where Beowulf makes his return after his hard battle with Grendel's mother. Upon his return the king of Danes dies of old age. This in a way is will give him the freedom to live as he has made Hrothgar proud.
