The Da Vinci Code Chapter 54

By Dan Brown

Chapter 54

  • The two fugitives gratefully pull up to Teabing's mansion and park their truck out of sight.
  • The snooty butler leads them into a fancy drawing room.
  • When the butler takes his leave, Langdon stashes the cryptex he'd wrapped in his jacket under the divan. That way they don't have to show Teabing if they don't want to.
  • Sophie reflects on how much her grandfather would've loved Teabing's house, with its antiques and fancy artwork.
  • Teabing enters on his metal leg braces and crutches with his typical dry sense of humor.
  • After some witty repartee, Langdon asks Teabing to tell Sophie about the true nature of the Grail.
  • Sir Teabing seems a bit too pleased to agree.
