Saw II

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?

Chosen 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: Who is the dead person that has Obi's envelope stapled to him?

Chosen answer: It is not a dead body, but a doll.

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?

Chosen 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.

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?

Chosen 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.

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?

Chosen 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: 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?

Chosen 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: 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?

Rochelle McCarty

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.

Sam Johnson

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?

Sir William

Answer: It was Zep, but he died because Adam smashed his head with a toilet seat cover.

Chosen answer: It was Zep, the guy from the first film that jigsaw used to kidnap the doctor's wife and kid. He went down to the room at the end of the first film, then got shot, so ended up dead down there too.

Kayleigh Green

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?

Chosen 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.

Andreas[DK]

Actually no. Amanda had sought out John before her first time around. She willingly went through the "beartrap" exercise to "cleanse" herself, knowing she could die. She's worked with him from the very beginning. The second time around, she put on an act for the other victims but, was still working alongside John. In the first Saw, she explained to the cops that John/Jigsaw had helped her.

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?

Chosen answer: Jigsaw owns the pig's head. He used it in the first film to capture Dr. Gordon and Adam.

moviemogul

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?

Chosen answer: At the end of Saw 7 it is revealed that Jigsaw found the doctor, nursed him back to health, and that the doctor has been helping Jigsaw all along.

Question: How much time has passed since the first film?

Chosen 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: 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?

Chosen 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?

Chosen 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.

Answer: So Jigsaw doesn't really want to kill Daniel?

No. He used Daniel as bait to get Eric to stay there with him. Daniel was also the key to everyone in the game being linked.

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?

Rochelle McCarty

Chosen answer: In Saw 7 you find out Jigsaw found Dr. Gordon, kept him alive, and that he's been helping Jigsaw ever since.

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.

TedStixon

Answer: It's a different building. It would be very foolish of Jigsaw to set up the equipment in the same building that he led Matthews to and run the risk of the SWAT team running into them.

Question: Why does Xavier want to kill everybody and not tell them anything about the numbers behind their head?

Chosen answer: He's only looking out for himself. He doesn't care if anyone else dies.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: All of the games included a limited amount of antidotes, he was being selfish.

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.

Chosen 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.

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.

TedStixon

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?

Chosen 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.

Greg Dwyer

Question: When Xavier and Addison are arguing, Xavier says, "The only door you know how to open is between your legs". How does he know she is a prostitute?

Chosen answer: He doesn't know she is a prostitute. He says that as an insult. Most likly implying she is, without knowing it's true.

Continuity mistake: When Amanda and Daniel entered the bathroom from 'Saw', Adam's body is shown with his right leg shackled. However, in 'Saw' and in Amanda's flashback in 'Saw III', his left leg is shackled.

More quotes from Saw II

Trivia: When Jigsaw and Eric escape the lair via a hidden elevator, the film's low budget prevented the construction of an actual working elevator. Thus, some trick photography and editing was implemented. For the first shot of Jigsaw and Eric "going down", the scene was shot by raising the camera vertically to give the impression they were descending. For the next wide shot, simple digital effects were added to make it appear that the room was "lowering." And for the final shot where we see the top of the elevator going down an elevator shaft, stock footage from the film "Hollow Man" was used.
