Continuity mistake: When Clyde starts eating his meal from Del Friscos, his left hand is handcuffed to the bed. It is not handcuffed when he is able to get up and stab his roommate.

Suggested correction: Prisons don't leave inmates cuffed to their beds in their cells. He was cuffed for everyone else's safety when Nick, the warden and the others were in the cell trying to found out the location of Bill Reynolds. Once everyone left the cell, he would have been released from the cuffs.

Factual error: In the scene when the police are heading to Clyde's house to arrest him, this tactic is highly unrealistic. In real life, when a person is simply a suspect in an investigation, the police do not all drive to the suspect location with lights and sirens going. This loses the element of surprise. They didn't even know if he was home, anyway.

Question: Two questions. Why did Clyde think Ames deserved to die? Sure, he was involved in the robbery, but he didn't participate in the murders, and in fact tried to save Clyde's wife from Darby. Also, why didn't Darby kill Clyde during the home invasion?

Answer: Clyde killed Ames so the police could find the hidden message and go after Darby which Clyde then lured him away to kill and place him on his property to start the cat and mouse game. Clyde blacked out too so he probably didn't remember too much what Ames did, even though he did say especially Darby is guilty. Not sure why Darby didn't kill Clyde. The scene suddenly ends. Maybe they tried or thought they killed him. I thought they stabbed him in his stomach and maybe expected him to die slowly but he managed to survive anyway.

Answer: He was also guilty by association. He was an accomplice who robbed them and even though he said stop, still watched Darby try to rape his wife.
