*** [[spoiler: The finale reveals that the Nibiru Entity has a lot of crocodilian-headed minions. Perhaps it had one of its previous corrupted teams open a gateway to a lesser prison-realm where the good Annunaki had banished a bunch of those, prior to their final capture of the Entity itself. The team in question failed to reach the prison itself, the dimensional barriers not being low enough yet, but they ''did'' manage to open a rift to a sub-dimension that was chock full of alligators, same as the complete Disc could access realms filled with pure elements.]]

** Quite possibly the culprits of those original crimes were inclined to behave that way even ''without'' the Entity's influence, and all the curse did in their instances was to ''attract them to Crystal Cove'', rather than having them play out their hoax-plots all across the country as per the other series.

As for the gang having foreknowledge of those cases, it's unclear how many of them the Scooby Gang had actually investigated themselves, and how many were the work of the previous Mystery Incorporated team. In which case, Velma might be the only one to remember the details of those instances ... meaning that her "brilliant" solutions to who was to blame for those crimes in the new universe are just her ''remembering'' whodunnit, and then going through the motions of investigating so she could acquire evidence to convince the authorities.

** He probably knew he could only maintain the ruse of not being aware of the truth for so long, at which point [[spoiler: Brad]] might well have abandoned the deception and led his friends into an ambush on the ''villain's'' choice of ground. He brought them to the factory because he knew it offered loads of opportunities to spring old machinery on the opposition as Improvised Traps, which is probably why he'd selected it as a good hiding spot in the first place.

** Faster, but not necessarily ''cheaper'' in resources. Even superhuman robots need fuel or a power supply, and Pericles may have had a better use in mind for the energy it would've used up to make them dig that much. Plus, keeping the townsfolk enslaved and digging ensures that his enemies can't make use of their assistance or risk just blowing the whole town to hell as a last-ditch option: not with a town-full of hostages on site.

** Alternately, the conquistador whom the friars encountered was a ghost, same as the one that briefly appeared in the wreck of their former ship. He died in the wilderness while carrying the two pieces, was unable to rest in peace knowing they might be found by the evil or unsuspecting, and finally passed the Disc parts on to the monks assuming that holy men would be able to resist Nibiru's influence.

** Maybe the woman in the picture ''did'' have meaning for him, just not the meaning he'd brought Fred up to believe it had. It could be that the woman in it was someone Jones Sr. once had a fling with, who left him years ago to become a model and appear in magazine photos. The fact that she was blond enough for him to pass her off as Fred's "mother" made it convenient.

* The Police is ran and paid by the government, not to mention how there is a branch that actually investigates crooked officers (such as our ''beloved'' sheriff). Point is... Why do the police there even care about the town not solving the mysteries, the citizen still have to pay the tax, and thus the police officers get paid. And also, WHY hasn't the Crystal Cove Police Department been fired and replaced?

*** Fred's "special treament" isn't exactly unrealistic. I recall a customer shared with me an anecdote from his time in law enforcement in Alaska. A time or two, he'd been chewed out because some trouble-maker he'd arrested happened to be of the same blood as a politician. As for the "other bosses", the whole town seems to favor the tourism dollars brought in by the "monsters" in their city, sooo...he's kind of doing what they want by turning a (mostly) blind eye. That, and there's the RuleOfFunny to consider.

** It's probably that he had just ran out of the toxin and grabbed him so he could paralyze him later. Perhaps as a way to lay the false trail further [[spoiler:on his wife.]]

** Almost everywhere in the United States of America, Sheriffs are elected county officials. The only place in the USA a sheriff is answerable to a mayor is in New York City. [[WildMassGuessing Is it a clue?]]

** "Dead Justice" reveals that 'Sheriff' is actually the character's ''first name''. Possibly his job title was originally "Chief of Police Sheriff Bronson Stone", but his given name caused enough confusion that it got conflated with his job title for convenience.

** As the locket had no actual connection to the mystery ''immediately at hand'', Stone would've only had to give it back to Daphne sooner or later anyway. The caves under Crystal Cove are open to the ocean, so all sorts of junk probably winds up down there, including plenty of stuff that'd have nothing to do with ''any'' mystery.
