Detective Wilden (Bryce Johnson) learned that it's a bad idea to push a mama bear too far on Pretty Little Liars Season 3, Episode 20: "Hot Water." But what happened to Rosewood’s worst detective after Ashley Marin (Laura Leighton) ran him over?

The answer to that question could have major ramifications for Ashley and the Liars, so of course our instinct was to speculate about the options. Here's what we've come up with.

He's in a hospital. The most straightforward option. Wilden might have been found and taken to the hospital, where he'll recover and then come back, probably looking for revenge.

He's escaped into the woods. If Wilden wasn't too injured, he might have just run off into the woods on his own. In which case, again, he could be back at any time, and you know he'll be angry.
 
With the "A" team, voluntarily. If Wilden is part of, or working with, the "A" team, he may have gone to join them. Again, revenge on the horizon.
 
With the "A" team, against his will. Wilden definitely sucks, but that doesn't mean he's necessarily part of the "A" team. We wouldn't put it past the "A" team to kidnap him for their own nefarious purposes.

He was killed, and his body is in the woods. It's possible Wilden stumbled off into the woods and died. We kind of doubt it, because his character still has so many interesting places he could go, but we can't discount the possibility he'll be found at just the wrong time.

He was killed, and the "A" team took the body. If he did die, maybe the "A" team swiped Wilden's body. In that case, he's sure to show up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
