  • Wait, if Alex cannot commit suicide, does suicide count as "violence"? I don't see the relation between suicide and violence. If anything, the Ludovico process is already suicide incarnate itself.
  • The cat lady was suspicious of the knock on the door because it was similar to the setup of the assault on the writer and his wife, and told this to the police. When Alex is arrested, apparently no attempt is made to connect him to the earlier crime, since the newspapers are full of stories about the rehabilitation of the cat lady's murderer, and the writer knew who he was from those, but not because the police ever told him they'd found the man who raped his wife.
