Montressor finally reaches where he plans to get revenge on Fortunato. Once he gets here Montressor tells Fortunato that the wine is in the dark room, and when Fortunato walks into the dark room Montressor chains Fortunato to a wall in the dark room, and begins to seal the room up with bricks.
As Montessor is laying the bricks Fortunato begins to wake up. Fortunato thinks that Montressor is playing a joke on him, and Montressor does not show Fortunato that is is a joke. Fortunato begins to understand that it is not a joke, and he starts to beg Montressor to let him out.
Right before Montressor lays the final brick Montressor throws the torch in the dark room so that Fortunato could get his last little bit of light before he seals up the room for good. After that Montressore says that room has been untouched for 50 years.
