Beowulf -- The original Grendel was a monster in the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf. Descendant of Cain, mere-dweller, and with the meanest mother around, he was the hero Beowulf's first foe in the work.
Beowulf eventually fights Grendel, defeating him by taking off his arm.
There is so much here that is important for this episode and this series, that my head is swimming. Some intial thoughts:
1. A descendant of Cain, the original murderer.
2. He had the meanest mother around (Livia)
3. Beowulf the hero takes away an arm from Grendel, like the Zombie in "Cleaver".
Can anyone with a knowledge of great litereature help me understand further the implications of this reference to Tony, the family and the lifestyle choices that Tony must make?
