Even as Lúthien rode there, Beren and Finrod were attacked by Sauron's wolves. The wolves had slain all of their companions, and one was coming at last for Beren. But Finrod, with the last of his power, burst his bonds and fought the werewolf, defending Beren. He killed the wolf, but was himself slain, and Beren mourned by his side as Lúthien and Huan arrived at the bridge to Sauron's isle. Sauron sent wolves one by one after them, with the intention of capturing Lúthien, but Huan killed each one swiftly. At last Sauron, taking the form of the great wolf himself, came to fight Huan. There was a terrible fight between the two, but even Sauron could not defeat Huan, and he was forced to surrender his tower to Lúthien. He fled to [[Taur-nu-Fuin]] in the form of a vampire. Lúthien freed the captives and sought out Beren, who mourned still by Finrod. They buried Finrod and went free together.

As they reached the borders of Doriath, Celegorm and Curufin rode upon them. Curufin picked up Lúthien as Celegorm made to trample Beren. But Beren leaped at Curufin, catching him by the throat and knocking him off his horse. As Beren throttled Curufin, Celegorm turned his horse and tried again to kill Beren, but Huan betrayed his master and stood between them, and Celegorm's horse would not go near. Lúthien would not allow Beren to kill Curufin, so he released him, taking his [[Angrist|knife]], horse, and other accessories. Curufin mounted Celegorm's horse, but as they rode away, Curufin took Celegorm's bow and shot twice at Lúthien. Huan caught one arrow in his teeth, and Beren jumped before the second, and it struck him in the chest. Huan pursued the brothers, but later returned with an herb of the forest, which Lúthien used to staunch Beren's wound. When Beren was healed, they returned to Doriath.

Beren knew Lúthien would be safe there, and one night he departed in secret to continue his quest. As he came to the edge of Taur-nu-Fuin, he sang a song of farewell to Lúthien and to the lights of heaven. But Huan, carrying Lúthien, had followed his trail, and hearing his song Lúthien sang in reply. She had taken the guise of [[Thuringwethil]], a messenger of Morgoth, and Huan had taken the guise of [[Draugluin]], a wolf he had slain in the Pits of Sauron. When they approached Beren they cast off their disguises, and Huan gave them counsel. Then Lúthien put on her disguise again, and Beren was granted the guise of Draugluin.
