* BrokenAesop: The goth girl who was bullied by the protagonist in "Wrong Number" gets the ghost of her dead grand-mother to magically transform the protagonist into a video file on a phone (don't ask) and then personally deletes her from existence; essentially the equivalent of kidnapping and murdering her. And the show treats this as an acceptable response to the protagonist's bullying. Short version: The show is advocating murder as a viable way of dealing with people you don't like.
