* Tommy has a wife and infant daughter. Red surmises that "maybe it was the thought of them on the streets or his child growing up not knowing her daddy" that goads him to ask Andy for help with his GED. At least the novella version lets you hope he eventually left prison for good. As for the movie version ... What do you think happened to his loved ones after his death?

** It would hardly be the first time a family lost its husband/father. What's happened to those left behind pretty much runs the gamut of all human experience. Some fall, some triumph.

** Let's just pretend that Blatch ''also'' got what was coming to him. He picked a fight with the wrong guy one day and died in prison. There, [[FixFic fixed it]].

*** And who's to say that Andy, with his new fortune, didn't send someone after Blatch himself?

*** Also note that the Sisters are stealth predators, if their treatment of Andy is of any indication-- they seem to single out their prey and wait until he's alone and unaware before closing in. Neither Andy nor anyone else can be protected by his friends all the time.

*** Since the newspaper explicitly mentions corruption ''and murder'' at Shawshank, it seems very likely that Andy wrote about Tommy's death. That, if nothing else, will be investigated, and that will lead them to wonder why.

** If they attempted it, they could put themselves in danger of being attacked themselves. Andy's group also seemed to have a large amount of older or out of shape guys in it, not a group that would want to take on the younger, violent Sisters.

** As far as anyone on the outside was concerned, Randall Stevens was just a name on the paperwork until the day he showed up to withdraw the money. The next day, the whole corruption is revealed, including a lot about Andy's part in it. If the investigators don't quickly get the bank personnel looking at Andy's prison photo, they simply aren't doing their jobs. By the time they can put that together, though, Andy is long gone, with a small mountain untraceable cash.
