After Harry returns to the school grounds through the portkey, Harry is in a terrible state and he refuses to leave Cedric's body. Moody takes Harry to his office immediately. He reveals that he has been helping Harry throughout the tournament so that Harry would reach the portkey, thereby going to the cemetery so Voldemort could be restored. Dumbledore, Snape, McGonagall arrive just at this point; Dumbledore had realized that something was wrong when he saw Moody whisk Harry away from the maze so quickly, and followed them. Dumbledore feeds Moody three drops of Veritaserum, and they discover that "Moody" is actually Barty Crouch, Jr. He has escaped Azkaban and used a Polyjuice Potion to impersonate the real Alastor Moody, who is trapped in a magical trunk. Crouch Jr. murdered his father, transfigured him into a bone and entered Harry's name into the Goblet of Fire, covertly ensuring that Harry completed each difficult task by supplying help one way or another. Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge, arrives at Hogwarts accompanied by a Dementor. Fudge denies Dumbledore's claim that Voldemort has returned and before Crouch can repeat his confession, his soul is sucked out when the Dementor performs the Dementor's Kiss on him (on Fudge's orders).
Harry is taken to Dumbledore's office where he reunites with Sirius and he relives his story of his night. He is taken to the hospital wing and is crowned Triwizard Champion and awarded with 1000 galleons. Dumbledore then makes an announcement at the feast telling everybody about Voldemort and saying to forget would be 'an insult to his (Cedric's) memory.' Harry gives his winnings to Fred and George to start a joke shop with and Harry sets off for another summer at the Dursley's.
