Grendel's mother, with vengeance and sadness in her heart, attacked the Herot, where she was out-numbered by powerful soldiers. She decided to capture one and run away.
She's gotten Esher! Attack!!
Once arriving at the cliffs, Beowulf and the soldiers see Esher's bloody head below. Then Beowulf is given Hrunting, Unferth's sword that has never failed in battle. He proceeds to jump into the water, knowing that his armor will protect him.
Poor Esher! Take Hrunting, it has never failed in battle.
When swimming down, Grendel's mother drags him into her home. She attempts to stab Beowulf, but fails due to his protective mail armor. Beowulf sought to slay her using Hrunting, but was unsuccessful as it was not able to penetrate her skin.
After knocking down Beowulf Grendel's mother tries to stab him again, but is not able to. Beowulf spots a giant sword on the wall and uses it to kill Grendel's mother.
I will kill you using this sword !
Beowulf, having killed Grendel's mother, spots Grendel dead. He decides to decapitate Grendel and bring it to Hrothgar. Grendel's blood melts the sword and only leaves the hilt. At the same time, the blood of Grendel's mother seeps into the lake, making the soldiers think Beowulf has died.
Justice for the people of Denmark.
Beowulf gives Hrothgar the Hilt and Grendel's head.
