  • As they are traveling through the catacombs, Montresor hands Fortunato a bottle of Medoc to keep him drunk and unaware. During the walk, they make a reference to the masons.
  • Resolution
  • Jingle Jingle Jingle
  • Montresor chains Fortunato, yet Fortunato still laughs, thinking that it's just a joke. Not realizing that Montresor is enacting his revenge.
  • Montresor reveals bricks from underneath the pile of bones and begins to build a wall, blocking Fortunato in. As the wall gets taller, Fortunato becomes more and more aware that this is no joke.
  • Before Montresor places the last brick, he drops a torch in, and all he hears is the jingle of bells. That sound makes his heart sick knowing that Fortunato is gone forever. He quickly places the last brick and blames his feeling on the darkness and dampness.
