When LOKI was asleep, GRID warned THOR that she had heard on the Giant grapevine that GEIRROD was up to no good and was on no account to be trusted. She was so concerned, she lent him her own magic belt, iron gloves and unbreakable iron staff.
On arrival at GEIRROD Castle, THOR used GRID’s gifts to great effect. The host was not there when they arrived, and THOR, still tired after a sleepless night, dozed off in a larger chair. The gruesome twosome daughters crept under the chair and heaved upwards to crush THOR against the ceiling.
GEIRROD didn’t appear until breakfast next day, when he acted as if nothing had happened. Then with no warning he seized a lump of red hot iron from a brazier and hurled it at THOR who, on the alert, caught it in the iron gloves and returned the favor with interest, bringing down a pillar supporting the roof before rebounding through GEIRROD’s midriff with fatal results.
