** It seems a little [[DerailingLoveInterests off]] that Eli is acting so overprotective of Clare [[spoiler:once Fitz returns]] into mid-Season 10 that it's quite unnerving, but it makes sense when you consider his perspective: [[spoiler:his last girlfriend was killed in an accident that he blames himself for, and his rival who previously tried to stab him is back and is in close proximity with his current girlfriend.]]

* Campbell and SelfHarm: he's never been caught. [[NewTransferStudent For all we know]] he's been doing it for ''years''. Neither he nor what he inflicts on himself fit the "cutter" stereotype, and what's one more cut/bruise/scar on a hardcore hockey player? Something really creepy happens later in the season.

** [[spoiler: Campbell's suicide. Although Campbell's method of suicide is never stated, it's most likely he slit his wrists. This was foreshadowed by Cam's reaction to cutting himself with his ice skate in "Rusty Cage" and while Eli was discovering his body, he was looking down, so it's implied that his body was not hanging, but rather on the ground. Further evidence is Eli was traumatized by red paint which resembled blood in "Ray Of Light". However, the writers were advised by on-set psychologists not to reveal exactly how Cam died, as doing so had the possibility to be "harmful" to audiences (i.e. inspire copycat suicides).]]



* Also considered FridgeBrilliance, Craig's apparently sudden drug use. Sadly, people with mental disorders like his, such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, [[TruthInTelevision often self-medicate with harder drugs instead of the proper prescription drugs out of stigma or inability to obtain/afford the medications they need.]]

* When Luke is first introduced, he is hesitant to be with Jenna because she "tempts" him. Also Becky, his twin sister, just tells Jenna she should stay away from him alltogether. She'd be absolutely right when Luke [[spoiler: sexually assaults Zoey at a party. Even more creepy coincidence, he may not have actually had sex with her, so that stayed true to Luke claiming he is abstinent.]]

*The fact that Emma had been been groomed by this pedophile for eight months qualifies as fridge horror in itself. The revelation is practically a throwaway line in the script, and has much less immediate dramatic impact than the horrifying near-rape scene itself, but the experience of being gaslighted and manipulated by a sexual predator for so long, of having one's first sexual feelings exploited and manipulated, of having to doubt one's instincts, one's entire thinking processes, is arguably more damaging than the near-rape itself. No wonder Emma goes from giggly/happy in the pilot to drawn-faced shrewishness thereafter.

* How much of Emma's early installment save-the-[fill in the blank] meddling/soapboxing can be attributed to her response to having been groomed and manipulated for eight months/almost raped by a pedophile she met over the internet? Emma's misinterpretation of Coach Armstrong's innocent familiarity with Liberty as sexual misconduct can be easily identified as the reaction of a child who was subject herself to long-term grooming under the guise of innocent interaction. How about Emma's opposition to News About Kids' product placement deal? This was an arrangement in which adult outsiders got to sneak their influence under kids' radar by persuading them through trusted new media in exchange for the "bribery" of computer access (via the donation of computers to the media immersion lab). As far as we know Emma's grooming involved only emotional, not material, bribery, but otherwise the parallels to her own manipulation are striking.

And Emma's objection to cheerleading on the grounds that it involves girls being led to become unthinking bimbos parallels her own experience of having come into peril through poorly-thought-out sexual experimentation.
