at around 12 mins) Instead of the step shooting forward and breaking the SWAT officer's shins, a blade had originally been intended to shoot forward and slice off the first SWAT officer's legs once said rigged step had been activated.

The first time we see the number 9 on Addison's neck, it has a curvy line, looking like an upside down 6. Later, when there are flashes of the previous numbers, the 9 shows up with a straight line.

Q
A Note Regarding Spoilers
A
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Q
For whom was the Razor Glass Box trap meant?
A
Addison, the prostitute, gets stuck in this trap, but according to the director's commentary, the trap was meant for Gus, the man who was shot through the eye when they tried to open the door. Gus is guilty of financial fraud at his work, and the Razor Glass Box was meant to represent the proverbial "cookie jar" where he would steal from. In addition, there is a lock with a key in it on the back of the box, so obtaining the antidote would have been very easy, but Jigsaw had correctly guessed that its victim would not bother to check.
Q
What is Jigsaw's new game about?
A
The main reason why everyone is put together in the same location is to put pressure on Eric Matthews. Eric arrested and framed all of the victims (except for his son Daniel). If the victims find out that Daniel is Eric's son, that puts Daniel in immediate danger. Jigsaw assures Eric that the only reason he has orchestrated this game is because he wants to talk to him for a few hours so Eric can truly understand the meaning of Jigsaw's work.
