Question: At the end of the film, when they go back into the bathroom from the first, I noticed that they had shown 2 people. They showed the man from the first, chained to the piped in the corner. And then they showed a face of someone on the floor. Who was this?
Question: How is it that all the dead victims (except Adam and Lawrence) are found? What kind of clues could the police follow to find those secret locations and still don't have any about the jigsaw?
Answer: Perhaps someone in the vicinity smelled the bodies and called the police. Each of the victims shown on screen appears to have been dead for at least a few days.
Lawrence didn't also die, as he was shown to have survived in Saw 3D. I'm assuming you are talking about Zep.
Question: When the timer goes off in Jigsaws lair, the cops turn around and see a safe open and that Daniel is safely inside. Has Daniel been in that safe the whole time the police were there? If not, then how did Jigsaw and Amanda find time to put him there?
Answer: Daniel was in there the whole time...The events in the house took place MUCH earlier than when the police got there. Everything in the house was on a tape delay.
Answer: Jigsaw stated that Daniel was in a "safe place ".
Question: Jigsaw intended for Xavier to go in the needle pit, but Amanda is thrown in instead. Did Jigsaw anticipate that it might be someone besides Xavier, so that all the needles looked dirty, but weren't going to infect anyone with anything? Did Amanda know that she had nothing to worry about, besides the pain of the needles stuck in to her?
Chosen answer: This is probably the case - although knowing Xavier's mannerisms, it wasn't out of the question for him to put someone else through this torture, so it was always a possibility that she could be thrown in instead. Amanda would have known that the excrutiating pain was the only thing to worry about.
Question: Who is the dead person that has Obi's envelope stapled to him?
Answer: It is not a dead body, but a doll.
Question: After Xavier threw Amanda in the syringe pit, and Amanda finds the key for the next door, WHICH CAME WITH AN ANTIDOTE. Even though, they couldn't open the door. why didn't ANYONE USED THE ANTIDOTE?
Answer: Could be a numer of things. Noone may have noticed, People might have thought it's not an antidote as they needed the key to GET TO the antidote or even they might not have thought to try it.
Answer: I don't think it was an antidote. It looked more like the neon fluid you find in a glow stick to make the key stand out in the needle pit more.
Question: When Jigsaw tells the victims, from one of the tapes, that the order of the combination is 'over the rainbow', what does he mean or how does it work?
Answer: Each of the numbers on the victims' necks are a different colour. If these colours are then put into the order of the colours of the rainbow, the corresponding numbers will be the correct combination.
Question: Is the SWAT team lead to a different building than Matthews by jigsaw at the end of the film? It looks very similar to the actual crime scene, which is what confuses me so much. If it was the same building they would be able to find Matthews, right?
Answer: It's a different building. It does look extremely similar, but it's not the same building. Given that they are so similar, it's entirely possible that they share a common blueprint design and are part of a development project, which would make sense, as later in the series, John is shown to have had a part in reel estate development.
Detective Mathews is in the real building, the signal the SWAT team finds leads them to a 2nd building which sends the camera feed.
No it was the same building, that's when they found out the tapes were pre recorded because it didn't show them on the cameras.
Question: What would have happened if Eric would have just sat and chatted with John till the timer runs out? Would that mean that Eric would have won his challenge?
Answer: Yes. It is explicitly stated that all Eric has to do is sit and talk (i.e., control his violent temper), and the reward will be reuniting with his son. He fails.
Simply because he didn't listen properly... Jigsaw said "he's in a safe secure spot"
Question: I want to know why Amanda was working for Jigsaw. He had already used her in one of his contraptions/games. Surely she would not work along side him. Was she slightly mad?
Answer: She was a lot more than slightly mad. Jigsaw plays mind games with people, apparently he broke Amanda. It's a little like Stockholm syndrome where people being held hostage can end up sympathizing with their captors.
Question: How did the police not locate the nerve gas house? Surely the police van Eric drives to the house is tracked by GPS. Even if Jigsaw and/or Amanda moved or destroyed the van, the police should still be able to find the vehicle and subsequently the nerve gas house via the GPS signal.
Answer: To add to the other answer, not every police vehicle is necessarily traceable even to this day. While many departments do have tracking beacons on their cars (such as GPS), there are some that don't. And given this film was released nearly 15 years ago before it became more commonplace, it's reasonable to assume that this is the case here. Also, even if the car was equipped with a lojack system (which would have been more likely at the time), those are pretty easy to block, since any radio-jammer (a device Jigsaw would almost certainly have around) will essentially make them "invisible" to trackers.
Answer: They probably should be able to track the van, but this is just a case of a film requiring "suspension of disbelief, " where we have to accept something that isn't necessarily realistic for the sake of enjoying the movie... Happens all the time in numerous films. We must assume that either the van didn't have a GPS tracker or that it somehow was disabled.
Question: Where did the pig's head, that Amanda wears when she stabs Eric, come from? Does it have any significance that I just missed, or is it just another freaky aspect of their twisted game?
Answer: Jigsaw owns the pig's head. He used it in the first film to capture Dr. Gordon and Adam.
Answer: When John captured his very first subject, Cecil, it was in broad daylight during a Year of the Pig Festival. Therefore he used a cheap-looking pig mask to blend into the crowd while he kidnapped Cecil. John then decided (for whatever reason) to continue using a pig mask for his future kidnappings, but used a much higher quality mask.
Question: Do we see Dr. Lawrence Gordon's body in the house anywhere. If not what happened to him?
Question: Why couldn't the victims just gotten a few antidotes, or maybe even the one in the safe, and shared it to possibly last the full 3 hours until the doors opened before the gas killed them?
Answer: They had no idea how long they would last. They had to rely on Jigsaw's reputation and Amanda's directions as the only one to survive him.
Question: When the kid with the death mask attached to him looks at the x-rays, he sees that the key to unlock the mask is behind his right eye. How did Jigsaw manage to put it there?
Answer: *SPOILER for the final movie!* Jigsaw didn't put it there. After Lawrence amputates his leg in the first movie and escapes, Jigsaw finds him, fixes his leg, and makes him one of his assistants. He does all the medical stuff and has the medical knowledge about drugs and such. This is shown in a flash back in the final movie. In the second movie we are led to believe it's Jigsaw doing the surgery because he's wearing the robe, but it's actually Lawrence.
Question: Jigsaw needed Daniel to get through the game safe and sound so that he could put him in a safe and later present him to his father. Amanda was also included in the plan. How could Jigsaw be sure that the boy or Amanda wouldn't die from the gas? Or did they already have an antidote?
Answer: Notice how Amanda doesn't cough up blood or have a bloody nose. She clearly had some kind of antidote other then the needles. As for the second question, look when Eric is in the room with the safe and notices the needle on the floor. Amanda gave that to Daniel.
Question: How much time has passed since the first film?
Answer: In a Saw bonus feature called Full Disclosure Report, the events in it take place 1 year after the first Saw. In the bonus, Eric Matthews is seen alive and well with other officers, and it is stated that he was recently suspended from the force for a short amount of time. Since Eric is chained up in the bathroom in Saw II, the events of Saw II must take place at least a year after the first movie.
Question: Just curious if anyone had a theory about Dr. Gordon. Zep and Adam are still in the house, we see them at the end of the movie. But where is Dr. Gordon? After seeing Adam & Zep's dead bodies, I kind of thought we'd see Gordon stuffed in a closet somewhere. Or maybe his lack of presence means he got away?
Chosen answer: In Saw 7 you find out Jigsaw found Dr. Gordon, kept him alive, and that he's been helping Jigsaw ever since.
Answer: It was Zep, but he died because Adam smashed his head with a toilet seat cover.
