Daniel and Amanda are running from Xavier through a tunnel that leads to the bathroom (where they come upon Adam and Zep's decaying bodies). When Amanda points out that he won't be able to read the number on the back of his neck unless she tells him, Xavier reaches behind himself with a knife and cuts off the skin from the back of his neck in order to read it. He then turns his knife on Amanda and Daniel, but Daniel (who has been pretending to be passed out on the floor) jumps up and slashes his throat with a hacksaw. Back in his workshop, John agrees to take Eric to the house after Eric brutally beats him. Detective Kerry, watching the live video feed, finally gets a lock on it and notices that Eric and Jigsaw have left the lair. The SWAT team arrives at the source of the video feed, but Kerry cannot see them on her monitor and realizes that the feed is not live. This is corroborated when the team finds several VCRs playing video tapes of events that have already taken place. The timer in the workshop finally reaches zero, and a safe behind John's desk open to reveal Daniel sitting inside with his hands bound and wearing an oxygen mask. When John told Eric he would find his son "in a safe" place, he meant literally. If Eric had simply talked with John until the clock ran out, he would have been there when the safe opened. Instead, he resorted to his brutal ways, and is no longer there, and Kerry can't reach him to let him know what happened. At the house, while a severally injured John waits in the car, Eric tears through the house looking for Daniel. He finds his way to the bathroom, where he is knocked in by someone wearing a mask. When he comes to, he finds himself shackled to the wall and a tape recorder in his hand. He listens to the tape. Amanda's voice can be heard thanking him for sending her to prison on a framed drug charge because it resulted in her meeting up with John, who became her father, teacher, and mentor. She assures him that she is going to carry on John's work—helping people to value the life they've been given—after he dies. Amanda then appears in the bathroom doorway, says, "Game over," and closes the door. In the final scene, John sits in the van, waiting for Amanda. As Eric screams in agony, a bloody John smiles.
