He had a lobotomy

Posted to WritersAndGenres

The implication was that McMurphy had been given a lobotomy. Nothing else could defeat him, so they gave him the ultimate punishment. Chief Broom knew that even McMurphy could not survive this one, which is why he killed him.

I love the scene where he throws the fountain through the window. I get chills just thinking about it.
