Didn't make sense! California's first lethal injection execution wasn't until 1996. The electric chair was never used in California, so firing up Old Sparky wasn't an option to revive by any governor. Hanging was the original method and the firing squad was used in the old days before California was tamed in the wild, wild west and became a State of the Union. This whole subplot was like Alice In Wonderland to me, since I'm too old to not know my native California's real death penalty history. If this was supposed to be Ryan Murphy's signature campiness, it was lost on me.
