— Dina tries to encourage Ryan to kill Brad[src]
Ménage à Trois
Dina was a young woman and the girlfriend of both, Brad and Ryan. As she was highly manipulative, she caused both of them to commit various crimes in order to impress her and fulfill her material needs. Due to her role in the love triangle, she was eventually targeted by Detective Mark Hoffman, the successor of the late John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. (Saw 3D)
One day, she was subdued, abducted and taken to the Welthammer Store, a home improvement market. Upon waking up, he was shocked to see that she was chained to a large metal plate suspended from the ceiling above a circular saw and was covered with a black cloth. Seconds later, the cloth was pulled away, enabling her to see Brad and Ryan, who were both chained to the contraption with the saw blade. Brad then yelled at the people outside the store to call the police. As he saw that a woman in the crowd had a briefcase, he frantically told her to use it to smash the glass. However, despite her repeated attempts she was unable to break the window. Seconds later, a mechanical ventriloquist puppet approached on a tricycle and introduced them to a deadly game. The puppet told them that they were chosen because of their crimes they commited in Dina's name and informed them, that one of them had to die within the next 60 seconds. In order to save Dina, either Brad or Ryan had to push the saws before them all the way to the other side, thereby inevitably killing one of them. If none of them managed to do this in time, Dina would be killed by the third saw blade.
Moments later, the timer began to count down and the blades started rotating. Therefore, Ryan immediately pushed the saws away towards the shocked Brad. Brad however fought back and shoved the saws towards Ryan. As he seemingly gained the upperhand, Dina told him that she loved him, which he reciprocated, and encouraged him to kill Ryan, much to the latter's dismay. However, when he tried to deal the death blow to Ryan, he fought back once more, causing one of the saws to vertically slice Brad's chest while he screamed in agony. Afterwards, Ryan confronted Dina, who claimed that she only loved him and had merely told Brad that she loved him as it was the only way for her to save herself. Ryan however was furious and when Dina yelled at him to kill Brad, he pulled the saws away from him. Seeing that Dina had played with both of them, Ryan told Brad that she wasn't worth either of their lives and thereby convinced him to sacrifice Dina in order to save themselves. Dina, who was shocked by this, angrily yelled at them. Moments later, the timer went off and Dina was lowered down, causing the third saw to slowly cut her stomach. Thereby, Brad and Ryan were covered in her blood until the saws finally came to a standstill after slicing Dina's body. (Saw 3D)
The police finally arrived immediately afterwards and freed both, Brad and Ryan, from their shackles. Dina's corpse was then taken to the police station, where she was obduced by Dr. Adam Heffner. (Saw VI, 3D)
Dina was a highly materialistic individual, pitting other person's value for her against the material things she could get from them. She was also an extremely manipulative woman and played off other people against each other for the sake of her amusement and her own personal gain. Due to her narcissistic personality, she was also quite ruthless, as seen when she neither felt any remorse nor showed any hesitation when she tried to convince Brad and Ryan to kill each other in order to save herself.
- In an earlier version of the script, Brad was written to kill Ryan and thereby save Dina from the trap.
- Dina's death is similar to the original concept of the Pig Vat, in which the victim, Judge Halden, was supposed to be lowered down into a blender.
