"And I will stand still for your stroke, steady on the floor,/ Provided you honor my right, when my inning comes,/ to repay" (74-76).
Gawain cuts off the The Green Knight's head. The Green Knight stands up and leaves. Everyone is shocked.
As you've sworn in this hall to do, in the hearing of the knights./ Come to the Green Chapel, I charge you, and take/ A stroke the same as you've given" (174-176).
One year and one day later. Gawain sets out to find the Green Chapel. He runs across a lord and his lady, and he stays at their castle. The woman gives me a scarf of immortality.
As long as he keeps it looped around him,/ No man under Heaven can hurt him, whoever may try,/ For nothing on earth, however uncanny, can kill him" (224-226).
Gawain finds The Green Knight. The Green Knight goes to behead him.
"Quickly then the man in the green made ready,/ Grabbed up his keen-ground ax to strike Sir Gawain;/ With all the might in his body he bore it aloft/ And sharply brought it down as if to slay him;/ Had he made it fall with the force he first intended/ He would have stretched out the strongest man on earth" (241-264).
The Green Knight reveals that he was the lord who owned the castle that Gawain stayed at. He is some what annoyed that Gawain took his scarf without repayment, but he forgives Gawain. However, Gawain is humiliated.
“That sash you wear by your scabbard belongs to me;/ My own wife gave it to you, as I ought to know" (336-337).
Gawain goes back to the castle while The Green Knight leaves the Green Chapel as well.
"Sir Gawain turned again/ To Camelot and his lord;/ And as for the man of green,/ He went wherever he would" (389-392).
