The message advises Langdon that he remains in risk as well as must satisfy Sophie in the shower room at the Louvre.

Sophie understands that the creating on the cryptex is decipherable if checked out in a mirror. They involve understand the rhyme, which refers to “a headstone praised by Templars” and the “Atbash cipher,” which will help them reach the password. Langdon bears in mind that the Knights Templar supposedly worshipped the god Baphomet, who is occasionally stood for by a big stone head. Words, unscrambled by the Atbash Cipher, is Sofia. When they open the cryptex, nonetheless, they find just another cryptex, this one with a hint about a tomb where a knight was hidden by a pope.

Fache recognizes that Teabing and the rest of them remain in the jet. He calls the British police and inquires to surround the landing field, however Teabing tricks the cops into believing that there is nobody inside the airplane however himself. Then he goes with Sophie, Langdon, Rémy, and Silas to the Holy Place Church in London, the burial site of knights that the Pope had eliminated.
Rémy frees Silas and discloses that he, also, adheres to the Instructor. Silas mosts likely to the church to get the keystone, yet when he attempts to force Langdon to give it up, Langdon intimidates to damage it.

They most likely to Westminster Abbey, where Newton is buried. There, the Teacher tempts them to the garden with a note saying he has Teabing. They go there just to find that Teabing himself is the Educator. Teabing thought that Saunière had made a decision not to release the secret of the Abbey of Sion, since the Church threatened to kill Sophie if the key was released. Wanting the trick to be open secret, he had actually chosen to discover the Grail himself.
Teabing provides Langdon the cryptex and also asks Langdon and Sophie to aid him open it. Langdon identifies that the password is apple– the orb missing out on from Newton’s burial place. He opens up the cryptex and also secretly secures the papyrus. Then he tosses the vacant cryptex in the air, causing Teabing to drop his gun as he tries to catch it and also prevent the map inside from being destroyed. Instantly, Fache bursts right into the space and also arrests Teabing.

Captain Bezu Fache of the DCPJ suches as Langdon as the prime suspect in Saunière’s death, and all he needs is an unintentional admission at the scene of the criminal offense. He’s obstructed in obtaining one, however, since Sophie Neveu (Saunière’s separated granddaughter and also code-breaker extraordinaire) interrupts the procedure and smartly alerts Langdon that he remains in significant trouble.
Both of them take care of to escape the Louvre without being captured by the police … but not before they uncover a series of ideas left by her grandpa.
From there, Sophie as well as Langdon are led on a wild pursuit to find the keystone– a mysterious things that will inevitably lead to the Holy Grail.

You see, the holy grail’s not a wood mug like Indy Jones located: it’s actually the bones of Mary Magdalene, as well as files that show she had been the mother of Jesus’s kids. (Whoa. That adjustments whatever.) Currently it’s up to Sophie as well as Langdon to open his clues in order to discover the trick he’s functioned so hard to safeguard.
Along the road, while evading capture by the DCPJ and attacks from the albino monk Silas, they get the help of the Grail expert Sir Leigh Teabing. With each other they understand Saunière’s riddles and also choose responses all over London on a scavenger hunt to defeat all scavenger hunts.
As points establish, it ends up this entire charade has been coordinated by a shadowy number called the Instructor. (Sheesh, that’s a threatening name.) He’s the one who got Silas to kill Saunière, as well as he’s been drawing the strings with Silas’s advisor– the regrettable Diocesan Aringarosa– also, who’s a man who is desperate to save his traditional Catholic sect Opus Dei from extinction.
In a spin no person sees coming, we discover– just as Langdon decodes the last clue– that Teabing is the low Instructor. With the timing of a Swiss watch, Captain Bezu Fache takes care of to save the day. He ‘d understood he had the incorrect male thanks to a confession from the sheepish Bishop (who had actually recognized he and Silas had been played), and takes care of to locate and jail Teabing just in time.
With their names free from any kind of criminal offenses, and the final idea addressed, Langdon and Sophie head to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. There they’ll allegedly discover the Holy Grail, according to Saunière’s last riddle. Instead, however, they locate Sophie’s long-lost grandma and little brother, who additionally happen to be direct offspring of Jesus Christ and also Mary Magdalene.
Sophie’s delighted to lastly have household (after losing her grandfather, she assumed she was completely alone), however Langdon is pretty bummed that he really did not end up finding the Grail.
The good news is, Langdon pieces together Saunière’s final clue in a different means, as well as is struck by the understanding that the Holy Grail is actually concealed underneath the Louvre itself.
