Orange Is the New Black

Storm-y Weather - S5-E13

Character mistake: The officers count the inmates and say there's 10 missing. There are indeed 10 inmates hiding in the pool. However, Pennsatucky and Chang had escaped the prison. The officers counted Linda as an inmate, who had been hiding in Litchfield the whole season, and wasn't on the list. That would make it 11 people missing, not 10.

Piece of Sh*t - S4-E6

Character mistake: At the end of the episode when Maria is framed for the prison panty business and told to expect an additional 3-5 years on her sentence she cries saying that her daughter Pepa will be in kindergarten by the time she gets out. However in season 2 episode 12 Maria tells Piper that she still has 6 years left on her sentence. This means that even without the extended sentence her baby would have been well past kindergarten age by the time she was released, so taking the extra 3-5 years into account, Pepa could be almost finished in elementary school by the time her mother got out of prison.

Friends in Low Places - S4-E8

Factual error: Tiffany asks a guard where he would go if he could travel back in time. He says he would return to 1999 to attend a Judas Priest concert he missed. He says he wasn't able to get close to Rob Halford. The problem is Rob Halford was not the lead singer of Judas Priest in 1999. Tim 'Ripper' Owens was.

Answer: You would need to be more specific as to which inmate to get an answer as to who possibly belongs in the mental ward. In general; usually the only mentally ill prisoners who go to the mental ward are inmates who show obvious psychotic breaks like Loli and crazy eyes as, with the conditions of prison, it's often difficult to tell who is mentally ill and whose frustrated from the conditions. Many of them are also only there temporarily. Crazy Eyes, first example, was in the mental ward. Her mother fought and won to get her out.
