When they get they get to the location, there is not any Amontillado. Fortunato is so drunk that Montresor is able to trick him into going into a hole in the wall to get the Amontillado. Inside this opening, there is a chain and a lock. Montresor uses the chain and lock to trap Fortunato inside and begins to seal the opening.
Layer by layer, the opening is being bricked by Montresor. As he is almost finished, Fortunato began to scream for dear life, but it is already too late. Montresor has almost successfully pulled off his revenge on Fortunato.
As Montresor walks away from his scheme, he only hears the jingling bells of Fortunato's jester costume in the tomb. Besides Montresor, no one has disturbed or even known about Fortunato's tomb for 50 years. It appeared that Montresor had gotten away with his revenge!
