  • Sir Gawain sets off to fulfill his pact with the green knight. He encounters many foes on his way.
  • "The lord of the castle welcomes Gawain and invites him to stay for a few days" (216).
  • Sir Gawain comes across a host and his lady who say they know where to find the Green Chapel and will tell him soon.
  • The lady tries to  seduce Sir Gawain, but being the loyal knight that he is, tells the host of everything that happens, except for the sash he receives.
  • "I'll give you merely this sash that's of slighter value" (Line 210).
  • "Since now you're confessed so clean... I consider you polished as white" (Lines 383-385).
