As always, the various [[RuleOfIndex Rules]] override nearly all other considerations. When the audience's disbelief, which was suspended during the show, gets reinstated some time afterward, what you get is FridgeLogic. When the means of "fixing" the PlotHole just end up making it worse, that's a phenomenon known as the VoodooShark.

The MST3KMantra is an exhortation to reinstate your Willing Suspension Of Disbelief even if it's been broken, because "it's just a show". Similarly, BellisariosMaxim calls the audience to reinstate their WSoD by ''ignoring'' whatever {{Plot Hole}}s or other inconsistencies broke it, or that those things really ''aren't'' as important as the audience member(s) may think.

-> ''An eagle-eyed viewer might be able to see the wires. A pedant might be able to see the wires. But I think if you're looking at the wires you're ignoring the story. If you go to a puppet show you can see the wires. But it's about the puppets, it's not about the string. If you go to a Theatre/PunchAndJudy show and you're only watching the wires, you're a freak.''

* ContrivedCoincidence: If the coincidence couldn't believably happen in RealLife for some reason, try to figure out why and how it could, OR try to figure out an InUniverse explanation for it happening that makes consistent sense. Otherwise, this is right up next to the AssPull as a way to immediately break WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.
