SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW (2021) Ending Explained

The Saw series continues in the new spin off Spiral: From the Book of Saw. Detective Zeke Barnes takes on a new case, with murders piling up that resemble the work of the infamous Jigsaw killer. We're breaking down the story, looking at the new traps, and most importantly looking into the new killer and his philosophies that differ from Kramer's.

    I personally feel like will is less of a kramer and more like Amanda. He uses john's philosophy under the guise of putting an end to systematic corruption but deep down this is just another revenge plot which is why his traps are unwinnable. Going forward it would be interesting to see his confidence break down as he realizes that he's really no better than those he's trying to "rehabilitate" and should be tested as well just as Amanda was.

    I thoroughly enjoyed how the storyline this go was from police departments perspective...how it covers their porcesses but also the police corruption and how a "snitch" cop is treated. This was the first psychological thriller that has had me fully enthralled in a very long time.

  • Snavels

    It's terrible what happened to Zeke, especially because I feel like he wasn't shushing the kid to keep him from telling, but rather shushing him so the other cop wouldn't hear him and come in to shoot the kid and leave no witnesses.

    When I watch a movie and there are certain things I don't quite get. I love watching your endings explained, you always help explaining things I missed. Keep up the good work.

    I just watched it last night. What a piece of garbage. It's by far the worst of the series. The acting was atrocious. The dialogue sucked, and the story was predictable as hell. Not to mention the traps all sucked.

    I think it’s also interesting that in the begging the killer is wearing a bigs mask and his trap is basically un-winnable just like in saw 3 with Amanda who also wears a big mask.

    I also think will won't last many movies he doesn't have the protagonists as style however he is quite smart tho which is kinda like the only thing you need in saw

    I just felt like Saw 5 mad killer detective guy the traps were pretty much giving the person very less time to do stuff like they should have shown them trying to not escape

  • universal_dissappointment

    The thing that really sucks is that when William says cops "shoot first and ask questions later" he was right. As when the cops burst in and shot an unnecessary amount of bullets into Samuel L., if they had actually stopped for a moment and assessed the situation, they would've seen that there was no weapon on Samuel L's arm. It was literally a cylindrical piece of metal.

    Can people start calling movies the actual name they are titled? This is spiral. And the next film will most likely not be called saw 10.

    I honestly would’ve just accepted death if I were in the tongue or finger trap. Fuck that dude lmao. The finger trap is just barely doable I think, but if I had no fingers, I’d hate my life anyways. Not to mention the tongue trap is objectively unwinnable. There is absolutely no scenario where a person survives that unless they find a way to cheat their way out of the mechanism without tearing their tongue off.

    i know im late but i just finished watching this and i liked the different style of kills,although I didn't agree with how inconsistent the new copycat was he didnt really tell all of the people how to survive there traps and they were all rigged anyways but i didnt expect the twist it was entertaining nonetheless

    I was disappointed at first with how Samuel L. Jackson's trap was and even got the spoiler where he was shot to death. That was until the movie came out and I seen why that was his trap and the reason behind it. I thought it was kind of weak at first seeing how bloody and gruesome the other traps were then for the finale to be shot to death by a bunch of cops. Like I said after I seen the full film and not just trailers I was pleased with it and found it fitting for the character. When I first heard Chris Rock was staring in this and producing it I laughed thinking it was a joke because a movie like this was WAY out of his league. He really surprised me and I'm glad he's trying different ranges of genres here and there instead of comedy. Overall I'm happy with the film and I love where this is going. Here's to hoping for Spiral 2 🤞🏻🤞🏻

    Out of all the Saw movies, this one actually had an interesting plot with some meaning. It wasn't about *"People BAD! They need to be taught a lesson"* it was about a corrupt system and a sick attempt to try and fix it.

    I’m surprised that when I got to the comments, everyone seemed to be in support of the movie. But honestly this was the worst movie I have ever seen. If you have more than 2 drain cells then you’ll notice the lazy writing, horrible props, dumb traps and a nonsense story. The twist wasn’t even a twist, I already knew that the cops buddy would be jigsaw.

  • WazyySzn

    When I saw the ending the dude just closes the gate and They get trapped the movie was good the ending was trash

  • queenfree85

    I HATED this movie. Sooo stupid. I've seen all the real Saw movies and my dislike of this movie had nothing to do with being used to how the movies usually go. It was very stereotypical (cheating wife, hardened emotionally not present father, hated by coworkers, doesn't follow the rules, etc) very telegraphed (I knew the dad was involved as soon as the convo about Zeke always making things about him when they're not happened and knew the rookie was involved as soon as they appeared to kill him off which made no sense trying to hype up some kind of emotional attachment we're supposed to have for him but is never earned) very boring (the traps, aside from the broken glass one, were lackluster) and very awkward (I felt like the dialogue and heavy handed forced relationships were very unbelievable and kept me from getting immersed in anything happening between catch phrases and outdated references like "what you doin willis"). As much as I'd like my hour and forty minutes back, I as usual I love your breakdown of the movie! I should have stuck to watching your channel instead of the movie lol.

    Chris Rock really killed it with the humor in this, he cracked jokes but also maintained a sense of seriousness, both perfectly balanced and not overwhelming the other

    If you watched the trailers they trick you because you hear a robotic voice say “when was the last time you saw your father”. In the movie you hear a cop say that making you think it’s him and at that point in the movie we think William is dead

    Ok if Jigsaw was alive he would not approve of the killing games because you know EVERYBODY DESERVES A 2ND CHANCE Also the reason why Jigsaw's followers are wearing pig masks is because Jigsaw's son is part of the Chinese zodiac sign the pig which means rebirth and if people survived Jigsaw's traps they will be rebirthed as a better person the reason why I say this is because alot of people are questioning me about why they're wearing pig masks

    I think it was Saw 5? The cop and the bad guy had the same hair and jacket, so I genuinely couldn't tell them apart. It was a very confusing movie. Major fail on the costume department's part.

    So wait the part where zeke asks him about his wife and son all he said was " i don't have a son " he didn't say anything about not having a wife maybe she helped him with traps ? which also explains the new voice

  • TooTsaka

    Spiral was, all in all worse than Saw V. The only thing that elevated Saw V above Spiral was the number of traps that was included. Spiral had a measly five... and I swiftly forgot about two of them as they were generally boring I regard Saw V, before Spiral, as being the second worse Saw movie. Saw 3D being the uncontested worst. Spiral was downright dire all in all. While I enjoyed Jigsaw thoroughly, this instalment, I feel they need to just stop before they create even more damage. It is truly dire.

    None of the traps were survivable. It was obvious from the start who the killer was. The killer's logic to go out of his way to become a cop & make partner made no sense if he was just going to immediately fake his death anyway. Chris Rock and the rookie/killer used policing methods that also made them absolute pieces of shit (like maiming and torturing a dealer for information). The killer had an inconsistent moral code (hurting people to 'clean up the streets' isn't okay for the other cops, but running in without a warrant, putting lives at risk by causing a shootout, and torturing someone for information is a-ok???). And the killer made a comment about being assigned to "bums being hit by a train" as being beneath Chris Rock to investigate. But yeah, he's "reforming" the metro police. And there's so much more. This was just all around fucking shitty movie.

    • ✩ Nix ☽
      ✩ Nix ☽

      Thinking about it more it did make some sense that he became a cop. To get inside info, hacking, etc until he could "recruit" Chris Rock. Everything else I stand by tho.

  • ✩ Nix ☽

    'who done it' movies follow such a formula that I immediately knew the rookie was the killer. Especially when they wouldn't show his face when he was being 'skinned.'

  • who cares
    who cares

    I think this killer is more dangerous than John Not only does he kill you in a brutal, most painful way, he gives you this sense of hope that you can get out of the trap when these traps are just made to make you suffer before dying a painful slow death, slow so that you can feel every inch of despair

  • coverandoacasa

    i hope the next "jigsaw" killer will be like a mechanical magician, the traps in this movie were a little basic actually, basic but very gore; yes, i said next jigsaw, john kramer succeded in creating a jigsaw cult, i bet events like the one in this movie are happening frequently and around the world... everyone could be a jigsaw copycat, where the mechanical/medical/inventive skills varies from individual to individual and the victims could be childhood bullies, evil bankers or yakuzas, the options are limitless. i loved all saw movies, from 1 to 8 and spiral included, so i hope the franchise will never end, and spiral proved that the franchise can actually continue at infinitum... i hope so.

    I see a lot of people comparing Will to kramer and how he strayed from jigsaws path. He straight up said he wanted to change the whole system an not the individual. Wills traps arent meant to punish the cops, as most people already pointed out, there inescapable. Wills traps are to send a message to the cops as a whole. The department was covering each others backs when one broke the law, so by making dramatic deaths they were ALL forced to see what would happen if they continued to keep quite. Will knew things about that one department, "it was only a matter of time before they were next" that was the message to the crooked cops.
