Rosewood isn't exactly a normal world, what with the all murder, stalkers, and big bad secrets. It's a heightened universe, and that's part of the fun. Even with that in mind, there are occasionally moments on Pretty Little Liars 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 TV and smack the characters upside the head for making bad choices.
Here are our picks of the biggest logic fails and most WTF moments from Season 4, Episode 2: "Turn of the Shoe."
Ashley Marin, what are you DOING? Listen. We realize that Manolo Blahniks aren't exactly cheap, but if you go confront a cop who later winds up dead, you throw those shoes out immediately (or better yet, burn them), you don't try to clean them with a toothbrush. Sure, Ashley got there eventually, but not before her daughter (and potentially "A") saw the evidence. (Also, what was she doing wearing Manolo's in the mud in the first place? If you're going to have a showdown with someone like Wilden, invest in some sensible flats.)
Also, yes, it's possible (though seemingly unlikely) that Ashley didn't actually confront Wilden, but even so, she'd clearly figured out the evidence seemed damning. Again, don't leave that around your house!
We're equally confused about the situation with her phone. If she realized it was missing after confronting Wilden, she should have called her phone company immediately and pretended it was stolen. If she didn't realize ... Well, come on. Who doesn't realize their phone is gone?
Aria, what did people tell you about strangers? Aria, here's some life advice: When a man you barely know shows up at your door, don't just let him wander into your house. Yes, everything turned out OK and it seems like Jake is actually a standup guy, but Aria should know better than to trust anyone at this point.
Was that meet really important? Sorry, but we're not buying that a random swim meet between what appeared to be just two teams was all that important. For trying to attract Stanford coaches, we'd expect the girls to be swimming at a regional or even national level event. Based on what we saw, we don't buy that Emily couldn't have just sat this one out.
