This storyboard does not have a description.
On the way to the catacomb, Montresor and Fortunato talk about the Montresor's Family crest and motto which is •"A huge human foot d'or, in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are imbedded in the heel." And the motto is •"Nemo me impune lacessit."
This is the climax where Fortunato is chained to the wall by Montresor doomed to die. Even if he does not know it "as he stepped unsteadily forward, while I followed immediately at his heels. In niche, and finding an instant he had reached the extremity of the niche, and finding his progress arrested by the rock, stood stupidly bewildered. A moment more and I had fettered him to the granite. In its surface were two iron staples, distant from each other about two feet, horizontally. From one of these depended a short chain, from the other a padlock. Throwing the links about his waist, it was but the work of a few seconds to secure it. He was too much astounded to resist. Withdrawing the key I stepped back from the recess."
The falling action is when Montresor says "For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. In pace requiescat!" Which shows that he has no remorse for Fortunato.
