The Green Knight

The Green Knight gets word that his brother is dead and it was a kitchen knave who did the murder.

That gets him sore. That gets him steamed. That gets him into his armor on a weekend and out to the forest to find the poor sap and do him violence.

The plan does not unfold without some few hitches.

Sweating with Gareth’s sword at his neck, the Green Knight wonders out loud if this thing could go some way other than due south. Gareth shrugs and gives him the bad news.

He says they’ll have to ask the damsel.
