Attack on Nick not realistic
May 20, 2010 5:10pm CST
Every show I have seen where one inmate attacks another with a shive, it is with an underhand motion just so the one being attacked doesn't see it coming and do just what Nick did and grab the guys arm. We don't know what the outcome of the fight was yet, only that Michael got a call that Nick had been attacked. But if it was realistic, Nick should have a sliced open gut at least.

One thing worth remembering is that Frank Ellis isn't some violent thug...he's in jail for forgery. I wouldn't necessarily expect a white collar criminal to be up on inmate stabbing etiquette. (Would you be worried about Bernie Madoff attacking you if you were cellmates?) I haven't seen the latest episode yet, but I would assume this wasn't some random act. Perhaps Adam put Ellis up to it.

I believe that this is exactly what will get Nick out of jail, but I think that Sharon and Phyllis are getting ready to run into Adam and find out just what a monster he is. I think they will come up missing from the trip that they are on.

I might be a spoilsport, but if there is one thing I don't expect in soaps it is realism. Soap actors can do anything as long as it is dramatically sound. We are talking about shows in which people get shot, go to the hospital, stay there a week or two and return without any side effects. There is no need for physiotherapy unless it is related to the story. There are exceptions but how many times have characters done the impossible. For me the epitome was injecting of liquid into Adams eyes, I don't even want to think about the associated pain and that no one in the house would hear his screaming. The one thing that is weird is that he could get attacked in the visitors room, since normally there are visitors lounges which have several inmates and guards making attacks difficult but rooms only have one inmate at a time. I do wonder if this was just a - your rich and you annoy me attack or if it was an ordered attack and by whom.
