Jill Tuck's Apartment is a fictional location from the Saw franchise as well as a minor location in Saw VI.


The Box

Jill examines the Reverse Beartrap

Jill Tuck owned an apartment 413 on one of the upper floors of a multistoried building at 545 4th Street, where she lived alone after the divorce from her ex-husband, John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. Following his death at the hands of Jeff Denlon, one of his victims, John left a black box to Jill, which contained one of his vicious devices, a Reverse Bear Trap, as well as six envelopes with photos of the victims of his next games. Within the next days, Jill became increasingly distressed as the envelopes from the box contained instructions for two new games John had designed before his death. While the first five envelopes belonged to a game for William Easton, John's former health insurer, the sixth envelope contained a photo of Detective Mark Hoffman, John's accomplice and successor, who he wanted to be tested as well. Therefore, Jill was at odds with herself due to her still existing devotion to John and her disgust for his vicious deeds. One evening, she was at home in her apartment and watched an old video recorded by John during an ultrasound examination. During this examination, John had come up with the name of their son, Gideon, who died when Jill had suffered a miscarriage after having been accidently injured by Cecil Adams, one of her patients, who had robbed her recovery clinic for drug addicts. Remembering her lucky past with him, she started to cry and took a look at the envelopes from the box, considering if she really should carry out his final request. While doing so, she noticed that she had a missed call on her mailbox. This call was from Pamela Jenkins, an investigative journalist working on the Jigsaw Case, who had already tried to get an interview with Jill. According to her message, she had found out something interesting about John's death and therefore invited Jill for dinner. Jill however refused to call back as she was annoyed by her obtrusiveness and because she was going to play a part in William's game, as she was in fact his sister. (Saw III, V, VI)

Pamela Jenkins' Abduction

Pamela shows the letter to Jill

Shortly afterwards, Pamela received a letter with Jill's address from Detective Hoffman. When she arrived there, Jill was visibly unhappy to see her. Pamela showed her a copy of a letter which had been found at the scene of John's death and asked Jill if she understood the meaning of this message. Jill denied this and told her to go. Unsatisfied with her visit, Pamela slided the letter under the door, telling her to call back if she changed her opinion. In fact, Jill was shocked to see the letter as it was actually a blackmailing letter written by Hoffman to Amanda Young, John's second apprentice and one of Jill's former patients, on the day of her and John's death. In the letter, he had told Amanda that he knew that she had been with Cecil at the night of the robbery which had caused Gideon's death. Therefore, he threatened her to tell John the truth. To prevent him from doing so, he forced her to kill one of their test subjects, Dr. Lynn Denlon. Meanwhile, Pamela was about to leave and entered the elevator. However, by unknown means Hoffman had blocked the control panel and thereby deactivated the elevator. When she went back through the hallway, Hoffman attacked her from behind while covering his face with a pig mask and injected her with an anaesthetic. After she lost consciousness, he took her to the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute, where he had already set up the game for her brother. Later that night, Jill put the remaining contents of the box, including the beartrap, into a bag and then drove to the zoo as well in order to set up Mark Hoffman's game. (Saw VI)


Jill wakes up from her nightmare

Angered by the letter, Jill decided to give Hoffman no chance to survive his game. However, he still managed to escape his trap, albeit heavily injured. Shocked by this, Jill quickly fled the scene. Afraid that Hoffman might take revenge on her, Jill went to the police station to talk to Matt Gibson, an officer of the Internal Affairs Division, who had once reported Hoffman to the department after the latter had ruthlessly killed an unarmed suspect. Furthermore, she demanded that she wanted to talk only to him, and neither the homicide department nor the FBI, as she didn't trust them. When Gibson eventually entered the interrogation room he introduced himself and sat down at the table in front of Jill. Jill told him that she had information about the successor of John and demanded protection and complete immunity in exchange for the information. Gibson however refused to accept the deal without more details. Therefore, Jill told him that John's successor had assisted him in most of his killings and would go on killing if he wasn't apprehended. She also said, that he knew Gibson and vice versa, before she finally revealed that the successor was actually Detective Mark Hoffman. Both, surprised and shocked by these information, Gibson accepted the deal, seeing a chance to close the Jigsaw Case once and for all. After her conversation with Gibson, Jill returned home. However, as Hoffman was still at large, she became extremely frightened and had nightmares of him abducting and brutally her with one of his traps. When Hoffman started his new games a few weeks later, she was eventually taken into protective custody. (Saw 3D)
