10.) Starting with the two absolutions, When the Knight tricks Gawain by not telling him about his supernatural abilities before gawain agrees to the terms of the agreement. Even though he is essentially putting his own life at risk and sticking his neck out he is sticking to his virtue. Gawain then “confesses” that he values his life over being killed and volunteers to use a girdle as an emblem of his failing which in the end doesn't show the character is worse but just how honest and absolute gawain is.
