Pretty Little Liars has never been a realistic show, and we wouldn't want it to be. Rosewood is bizarro world, where stalking, murder, and epic teen romances are just par for the course. That said, sometimes crazy Rosewood logic just becomes crazy logic, period.
We're willing to go with the flow most of the time, but there are definitely moments that make us stop and say, "Really?" Sometimes it's something that doesn't make sense from the writers, and (more often) it's just that we want to reach through our TVs and smack the characters upside the head for making bad choices.
Here are our picks for the biggest logic fails and WTF moments from the Season 5 premiere (Season 5, Episode 1, "EscApe From New York").
"A" has an entire army in NYC? We're willing to believe that "A" has a ton of minions, but it's harder to buy that they somehow managed to coordinate all of those minions showing up and putting on a freaky show for the Liars in a whole other city. It's not like "A" had a lot of time to set up that stunt, and New York and Rosewood aren't that close together.
No guards for Ezra? No hospital security, period? Ezra was shot, and the shooter was still on the loose, and yet Aria and Shana could just wander in and out of his room at will? And seriously, no one noticed that "A" was walking around with a full outfit of black (not scrubs) under that lab coat?
Ali and Co. could just waltz into that movie theater. Were there no alarms in that theater at all? And why were the lights on if no one else was there?
Holbrook didn't already know who Ezra was. When Holbrook first got a call from the NYPD, he seemed to have no idea who Ezra was at all, even though he did that whole investigation last season into every facet of the Liars' lives. Even if he hadn't realized Aria and Ezra were once a couple, you'd think he'd at least know who their teachers were...
Did you notice any logic fails this week? Let us know in the comments below!
