** The age of consent is 16 in many states. I think they problem wasn't so much age as they fact that he was her teacher.

** It's not just "pretty wrong", it's literally illegal in most countries. Even if Aria were 18 and Ezra taught at her school but she wasn't in his class, it would be illegal here (UK) and possibly in the US. It's an abuse of power for all the reasons listed above. Also, the age gap when one party is a minor is squicky to a lot of people. It's not the number of years, it's the life experience- Aria hasn't even finished High School or had to fend for herself in life, whereas Ezra's been through college and teacher training and is an adult supporting himself.

* How is Jenna able to drive in a 4th season episode? She's been blind for maybe a year or two and she's in high school, meaning she should be 17 at the time. Obviously, she shouldn't have a legal license but how did she ''learn'' how to drive? She shouldn't be able to but she's driving around ''by herself'' on a regular basis. Maybe she learned right after her successful operation, and didn't believe she'd lose her eyesight so quickly afterwards. That brings up the issue that she's ''still pretending to be blind.'' No one would teach a blind girl to drive. She had to have gone out of her way to get driving lessons without pulverizing everyone and everything else even with her RECENT surgery.

*Why exactly is everybody(sans the girls) so sure that Ali died in the fire? No remains were ever found and that alone should prove that girls could be right when they say Ali is still alive.

** The diagnosis didn't come from what the girls told them; their accounts just made it clear that something was wrong with one or both of them. They ran various other tests after - we're never given the details one what kind of tests, but whatever they were, Courtney's terror of her sister caused her to test as paranoid schizophrenic.

*Okay two things. How did the police come to the conclusion that Hanna killed Graham via overdose while he was at the burn clinic? Remember that burned girl Hanna befriended? The one who was found dead around the same time Graham kicked it? Well it was said she was dead for a week before she was found and yet "Kayla" was still in her bed interacting with Hanna and probably other people during the week when she was supposedly dead. To top it off her bed was right by Graham's room. Gee that sure is weird, maybe the police will look into it? Oh wait they're just gonna blame Hanna without investigating or anything. WTF? Also shouldn't the damn police be able to determine how many people did or didn't attack Tabitha by looking at her body?

**The police are insane and/or stupid. At least that's I'm starting to believe. I mean don't they have people who specialize in examining photo and video evidence and who would surely be able to determine if a video like the one of the girls supposedly murdering Tabitha was real or not? Not to mention that when investigating a crime the police tend to look for a lot more than fingerprints(such as hair and skin). As for the fingerprints I got no idea. Maybe Ali and Nick wore gloves and maybe they got the girls prints from somewhere and put them on everything(I don't know if anyone could realistically do that but it's a possibility and I wouldn't put it past Ali) but that still doesn't explain how only the girls prints showed up when realistically their family members prints should have shown up on some things like the hand written notes. Speaking of aren't the police supposed to have handwriting experts too?

** Bad/absent/inattentive parents. No, really. Ali's dad was probably on one of his ever-present business trips, and [[her mom was shown to be busy dealing with something, implied to be the news of Bethany's escape. She was occupied enough that Ali walked out without being noticed, anyway, and given that Jessica probably wasn't just sitting in the living room by the door and stairs all night, I don't doubt that IGJM could've gotten up to Ali's room.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In the show it makes more sense; both the bulimia and shoplifting were messed-up coping mechanisms that Hanna learned from her Queen Bee BFF of the time. It's stranger in the books, since it's shown that bookverse!Ali was actually trying to help Hanna work through her bulimia problems rather than start them, and I'm not sure if the shoplifting=attention thing from the show was in the books or not. However, it could still be argued that even in the books those acts were both Hanna's way of dealing with her problems.

** Ezra's [[spoiler: no longer a teacher but rather the owner of the Brew]]. I'm pretty sure that as long as the more, shall we say, interactive side of the relationship doesn't become public knowledge, simply dating each other would technically be legal. At this point, it would be just as acceptable as Jenna dating Garrett was. [[/folder]]

*This literally just popped into my head a few minutes ago. Back in season one Spencer turned in one of Melissa's papers as her own. The paper is so good that her teacher enters it into an essay contest which it won. But if the paper was that good and Melissa turned it in herself during high school, how did no one except Melissa herself realize that it wasn't Spencer's paper?

* In season 3 it's revealed that one of the windows of the psychiatric hospital day room is wide open,presumably it was Mona's plan B after the staff discovered that someone was letting a patient sneak out at night. Correct me if I'm wrong but don't such instatutions usually have bars or alarms on the windows specifically to keep the paients inside the hospital?

** It's implied that Rosewood Sanatorium is not run well at all, so a window left wide open may well go unnoticed.

** It's not weird or unrealistic. LGBT women exist everywhere. Even in Rosewood. As for the men, I'm sure they exist, they're just not relevant to the plot right now...
