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 9: "Into the Deep."
Ezra's first thought is lawsuit? Listen, we get that Ezra is still in love with Aria so probably doesn't want to leave Rosewood, but seriously — his first thought after hearing that Maggie wants to move is an expensive, distressing court case that will probably end badly for him, and would certainly result in the mother of his child hating him? He doesn't even consider, say, moving out to Washington so he can remain close to his son? Seriously, what is tying him to Rosewood besides Aria? We know it's not that he wants to be close to his family, and he doesn't seem to have a ton of friends.
Where did pastor Ted get $100,000? OK, this might be less of a logic fail and more of an intriguing question, depending on if the writers revisit it. We suppose it's possible Ted just had 100 grand lying around, but it doesn't seem all that likely. Could he have done something extreme, like mortgaged his house? Or maybe he's not as clean cut as he seems...
Mona is sent to Radley, again. We were a little unclear on if Mona's latest stay in Radley was imposed by the police, but based on this sneak peek, it sounds like she was sent there for psych evaluation because of her confession... despite the fact that she told the police that she snuck out of Radley all the time. This is why you're the worst at your jobs, Rosewood PD.
