Once in safety, Ungoliant turned on her partner, demanding the jewels of Fëanor.  The spider had grown greatly in size and strength from feasting upon the Trees, and Morgoth, now very weak from his efforts, feared her suddenly. Lacking the strength to fight the monstrous spider in that moment, he reluctantly parted with each of the beautiful gems, and Ungoliant devoured them.  But Morgoth refused to give up the Silmarils, and she encased him in webs, torturing him and nearly devouring him.  A loud cry of desperation from Morgoth penetrated deep into the walls of Angband and was heeded by [[Gothmog (balrog)|Gothmog]] and the [[balrogs]], and they rescued him from her clutches, driving Ungoliant away with their whips.  So Morgoth returned to Angband.<!-- The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 9, Of the Flight of the Noldor -->
