You don't think it is possible for a veterinarian to successfully reattach a severed human hand while the psychotic patient is awake?

Also, didn't the president get poisoned on the last episode of season 1? Isn't it odd that when they show the newspapers that wasn't the lead story instead of the prison escape. Maybe the story about the president's death and the swearing in of the first woman president was on page two.
