This storyboard does not have a description.
The men were celebrating the killing of Grendel, with alcohol and music, a lively night. Feeling safe after Grendel died, they didn't think they needed to protect themselves and keep their weapons on or to stay up, letting their guard down, they all went to stayed in Herot, up in the rooms they went and fell asleep after a long night of celebration.
Grendel's Mother walked a long way to the Hall, she wanted revenge for her son's death. She got there as they slept, ready for whatever was about to happen. When she got there, she immediately went upstairs where the men were asleep. The men could hear something and they jumped quick to get their swords, only. Grendel's mother was now nervous and she still wanted revenge so she grabbed a man who happened to be close to Hrogthar and fled Herot.
Grendel's mother sprinted home with this dead man in her arms, and in her others was her son's claw. Hrogthar found out about his friend being taken. Saddened by his death, he asks Beowulf if he could find her and kill her, for that was his close friend. Beowulf didn't stay the night but as soon as he could he left to go find Grendel's mother. He has a lot of courage and didn't want Hrogthar to mourn any longer.
As Beowulf travels to the cave of Grendel's mother, it starts to rain tremendously. Beowulf realized that this will continue as long as Grendel's mother is still saddened by the death of her son. He is more determined than ever. Gendel's mother senses someone near and attacks Beowulf. He is protected and doesn't kill him but takes him with her to her home.
Beowulf at this point doesn't have a chance to get his sword and kill her easily. Finally he gets a chance and tries to use his sword but she dodges it and he throws his sword aside. He decides to just attack her with his bare hands, they are put struggling and scratching, punching eachother, there is no one winning at this point.
Beowulf, tired of fighting, spots a huge sword on the wall. He reaches for it and Grendel's mother is still trying to attack him, he gets a small chance to push her back and while she is trying to get up and attack again, he gets the sword and stabs her in the face. The cave suddenly becomes lighter. He notices Grendel's body, he destroys it completely. His bravery is noticed.
