Maybe thats not the best example. They know that if they follow along, the captured person will be returned safely. If they called the police, then the kidnapped person could be hurt. Actually, calling police in kidnappings is often a challenge, because police may want to put capturing the perps ahead of the safe return of the victim.
Also, remember that A usually had leverage in the form of evidence against the girls like a video tape of them disposing of a body although simply a video of people digging shouldn't be all that incriminating in real life To be fair, the girls know there at at least two corrupt cops on the force, and the newer ones don't seem to be much more professional either.
When one of your options is Wilden, following A's instructions suddenly looks like the lesser of two evils. Anne Sullivan holds it as well in Season 2: Her office completely lacks any kind of security system. Granted, this is seemingly a problem the rest of the population of Rosewood has too, but it's especially striking when displayed by a psychologist who is responsible for confidential patient files. Hanna may well have the Idiot wrecking ball for Season 4. Even though A has gleefully set up innocent people in the past repeatedly , she still steals her dad's stolen gun from her mom's closet, despite her mom telling her she didn't kill Wilden several times, and attempts to bury it.
Cue police arresting her, and finally getting the very evidence needed to arrest her mom. And while we're at it the entire mess with Wilden can be traced back to her "subtly" telling him that she knew his secret and was going to tell everyone.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! She does this again in the seventh season, when she kidnaps Noel. While she is suffering from PTSD, it doesn't change the fact that it was a dumb idea. Especially since a she was ignoring calls from her friends, who were already at work to find proof that Noel was after them, and b she was committing a crime and knew it.
Noel escapes with evidence of what she did. It's well known Spencer plays Field Hockey but we never actually see her in games like we do with Emily's swimming. Same goes for Aria's writing skills. The show features her singing and her artistic ventures - photography and sculpture, but not writing, which is supposed to be her number one passion. In Season 5, Emily displays major dancing ability and was said to take lessons from an early age Lucas suffers this badly. Apart from Hanna, he has literally no friends.
Then Caleb comes along and they form something of a bromance.. Mona was also a victim of this in her Loser Mona days. Mona claims that she started the A scheme as a means to get back at the girls, not for their treatment of her, but for the fact that Hannah was spending more time with them and less time with her , even though they'd barely hung out together at all after Alison's death and it was in fact the A scheme that brought them together again.
Justified though, as it's implied that Mona was taking orders from someone else and her claims about her motivations are a lie. When Alison returns, she claims she was kidnapped and the Liars helped rescue her. Eventually, the Liars really are kidnapped and Alison helps rescue them.
Ezra is attracted to Aria who is sixteen, and also his student. Although sixteen is the age of consent in most states in America, and it is not clear where the show takes place, his being her teacher makes the relationship quite illegal. He also chatted with Alison in the past, and may have been attracted to her, although both Alisoin and Aria did lie and tell Ezra that they were college students and older then they actually were.
It should be noted that this does not make him a Pedophile, as Pedophilia is an attraction to children that are in theri preteen years, nor does this make him a Hebephile, which is an attraction to young teens that are still prepubescent.
Allison was at either fifteen or sixteen, and Aria was either sixteen or seventeen. The encounter with Allison would have been statutory rape had they had sex.
Alison definitely crosses into this trope. The reason why she is popular is because she is attractive, smart and charismatic. Jerk with a Heart of Gold: And yet she seems to really care for the four girls. Her appearances in the present that suggest she may be alive seem to indicate she Took a Level in Kindness. Subverted, though not fully, with Sean. When Emily first meets Samara at a cafe.
Did Paige not tell you I'd be here? No, she did, I just didn't expect you to be so Alison to the other Liars near the end of the Grand Finale: For some reason, this feels like the end of the something. Ashley Marin is the most radical example of this trope.
There seems to be no line she won't cross to protect Hanna. Pam Fields defends her daughter from Paige's father. At the time, she hadn't really changed her views on homosexuality, she just had a reaction to someone hurting her daughter. Ella is like this mainly towards Mike, thinking Aria can take care of herself. Toby is one of A's accomplices and Spencer's greatest love. Topped by the reveal that Ezra, Aria's love, is A-ish. A more minor example, though rather heartbreaking example was when Hanna found out in season 1 that Caleb hooked up with only because Jenna paid him.
Lured into a Trap: Spencer goes to meet Toby in the Fun House at a carnival and gets shoved into a tiny space instead. The series lives on this from parents putting up the front of a happy marriage to the Liars themselves going to massive lengths to keep their own secrets.

Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: How Toby Cavanaugh is played at first. Later on, he drops the "Misunderstood Loner" part. And as of Season 3, maybe the "Heart of Gold" part too. In "Unmasked", the liars are walking home, ecstatic that they have finally unmasked A.

Also played straight; most of the men on the show are plenty attractive enough to keep up with the women which is to be expected, this being made by Alloy Entertainment and all. Spencer drinks a lot of coffee. Emily the barista has shades of this too. Happens with Ezra in season 4 episode 'A is for Answers'. After a brief gun struggle with A Shana ,Aria notices the gunshot wound in Ezra 's stomach before he falls unconscious.

When they are home they tend to neglect her in favour of Melissa. They also allowed Ian to live in their house, despite Spencer being terrified by him. Toby and Jenna's parents are literally never seen and apparently don't mind their teenage daughter dating an older guy. Aria's parents generally mean well but didn't notice Mike's depression or Aria being terrorised by A or her having a relationship with her teacher. Aria was one before Ali went missing. Plot Tailored to the Party: When you factor in the unusually high quantity of lesbians and bisexuals that show up whenever Emily is there.
Seriously, how inept can the Rosewood Police Department get? Although the Liars' regular antics aren't exactly helpful, either. Political Correctness Gone Mad: Invoked by Paige's father.

Wren is the opposite. He was Asian in the books, but white in the show Reality Ensues: While what happens to Alison and her friends is extreme, it does showcase how someone can snap when they have been mistreated for far too long.
Also, someone who acts like a Jerkass to so many people for a long period of time will end up with a lot of enemies and very few friends, even if they are trying to atone for their actions, as Alison can attest to.
Running around accusing people of crimes is a bad thing. When the girls accused Alison of killing Mona, they made sure to basically tell the whole town and turn everyone against her. Spencer even emotionally backmailed Jason into telling the police that he thinks that she could have done it. However, when Alison was proven innocent, Jason was very angry with Spencer, who had to apologize for it.
Later on, the girls do the exactly same thing to Andrew. When he was proven innocent, he let loose with a blistering "The Reason You Suck" Speech that left the girls feeling guilty.
