In the end Beowulf destroys evil once and for all.
The earth was convulsing violently, our home was shaking to and throw as if it were about to be ripped out of the ground from its foundation.

What’s so funny?” Asterion barked in his deep threatening tone. I snickered once more and responded with arrogance, “You imbussel, you thought I, Odysseus, the wittiest of them all wouldn't have a brilliant plan.” I instantly then called upon Zeus’s thunderbolt and the sky lit up with lightning and in a bright flash that could be seen for miles and thunderbolt struck the cavern.
