In this scene, Montressor meets Fortunato in the evening. This is proven by the line, "It was about dusk, one evening during the supreme madness of the carnival season, that I encountered my friend."(Poe,4). Montressor met Fortunato in the middle of the carnival and found him wearing a striped dress. He also found him extremely drunk so it would be easy to manipulate him.
In this scene, Montressor is taking Fortunato to his imaginary stash of Amontidillo. To make sure Fortunato buys his bluff he brings up Luchresi which is probably Fortunato's rival. Montressor also had made sure that no one was home to see Fortunato.
In this scene, Montressor leads the very drunk Fortunato into the catacombs. This scene helps build up the suspense in the story. This is proven when Montressor states that, " There were no attendants at home; they had absconded to make merry in honour of the time. I had told them that I should not return until the morning, and had given them explicit orders not to stir from the house. "(Poe,24). Another reason this scene builds suspense is that the stairs are described as long and winding.
In this scene, Montressor chains Fortunato up to the wall. It was easy since Fortunato was drunk and Montressor kept on giving him drinks. This is true since he,"...broke and reached him a flagon of De Grave. He emptied it at a breath."(Poe,54). Montressor then started to build up a brick wall to lock Fortunato in the catacombs. He then heard Fortunato cry out loud and he didn't sound drunk anymore.
In this scene, Montressor throws a torch over a small opening in the wall and finishes building. He then proceeds to run away since his heart grew sick. He was feeling his guilt after he made the wall.
In this scene, Fortunato is assumed to be dead since he was locked up in chains by Montressor. Also, Montressor built a brick wall to make sure he could not escape. Montressor then goes to say that no one has gone down there for 50 years.
