The Last Crusade Ending Explained
Jones successfully overcomes the traps (which include fast-moving saw blades, a word problem, and a secret bridge over a deep pit) and reaches the Grail’s room, which is guarded by a knight, using the information in the journal while being pursued by Donovan and Elsa. The power of the Grail, which is buried amid hundreds of fake grails, has kept the guy alive for 700 years. The real Grail gives everlasting life, while the counterfeit ones kill anybody who consumes it. Elsa chooses the incorrect cup for Donovan, leading him to age quickly and disintegrate to dust after drinking from it. Jones sips from a simple clay cup that turns out to be the real Grail, but the knight cautions that it cannot be removed from the temple and that its defender must remain inside to remain eternal.
Jones pours the Grail with holy water and takes it to Henry, immediately curing him. Elsa ignores the knight’s warning and attempts to take the Grail with her, causing the temple to collapse around them as she crosses the Great Seal carved into the floor at the entrance. When the Grail falls into a fissure on the floor, Elsa falls to her death while attempting to retrieve it. Jones is on the verge of the same fate until Henry persuades him to escape. As they flee, the Grail Knight bids them goodbye. The Joneses, Marcus, and Sallah ride out into the sunset after leaving the temple.
