— Jeff's words just before killing Jigsaw[src]
After completing his tests, Jeff exited the abandoned plant and entered Jigsaw's lair. During the confrontation, Jigsaw gave Jeff the choice of killing him with one of various implements located on a tray before him and taking his revenge, or making the choice to forgive him. Unbeknownst to Jeff, the choice of killing Jigsaw would ultimately lead to Lynn's death (the woman who was now revealed to be Jeff's wife) as well, as Jigsaw's heart rate monitor had a flat-line indicator that would activate the Shotgun Collar placed on Lynn. This final choice was the true aim of Jeff's Trial preceding it.
In the end, Jeff claims that he forgives Jigsaw, but then chooses to take his revenge despite this, murdering Jigsaw by slicing his neck with an electric circular saw. Before Jigsaw succumbed to his injuries, he played one final tape for Jeff, informing him that he was responsible for the loss of Jeff's second child, his daughter Corbett, who Jigsaw had locked away with a limited air supply. The tape also left the possibility of a prearranged game that Jeff would have to undergo with the tape's final line, "and if you want to get her back, you'll have to play a game."
|“||You haven't learned anything tonight, have you? Your rage and your vengeance will only hurt the ones you love. Killing me will only add to your misery, it will not bring back your son. Think of your daughter Jeff. She needs you now more than ever. You can't kill me, Jeff. Your wife's dying, Jeff. Her time's running out. Jeff, do not miscalculate. Your fate is in my hands. Your wife's fate is in my hands. Though you may not see any threat, there are threats all around you. Jeff, if you try to move your wife, she will die. I can have an ambulance here in four minutes. Would you like to take your wife out of here tonight? Would you like to take her to safety? Stand and face me Jeff. Right now. Would you like to get your life back? Would you, Jeff? I can make that happen. Which is it, Jeff? Come on, yes or no? One final test. The rules are simple. Over on that table, there's a host of vicious implements, which you can use to exact your pound of flesh, to take your vengeance, to indulge your obsession. Or, you can choose to put your vengeance aside, and you can forgive. You can forgive me for the pain that I've caused you and your wife tonight. Which is it gonna be, Jeff? It's up to you. Live or die, Jeff, make your choice.||”|
— Jigsaw explaining the rules[src]
|“||Hello Jeff, I made this tape as an insurance policy, if you will, and if you're listening to it then it's time to collect. I was your final test, Jeff, your final test of forgiveness, and if you are listening to this, then you failed. Now you must pay the price. The price for living a life of nothing but vengeance. Now I will give you something to live for. I told you that you couldn't kill me, Jeff, but I didn't tell you why. And the answer is simple: I am the person responsible for the loss of your child. I am the only person who knows where your daughter is. She only has a limited supply of air left, Jeff, and if you want her back, you'll have to play a game...||”|
— Jigsaw's final words after Jeff failed his test
Original Ideas: Before settling on the final version of the Confrontation, the creators and writers of Saw III shot numerous different versions, all resulting in Jigsaw's death at the hands of Jeff. The only differences were the weapons of choice, among them the original circular saw blade that Jeff picked up before finding the high power saw. An alternate ending was also shot, using the concept of Lynn's "bomb" collar, which would detonate and shake the room following Jigsaw's death, knocking Jeff to the floor, unconscious. Upon awakening, Jeff would then find a tape, possibly the one Jigsaw played after his throat was slit in the given ending.
