TV’s 8 Most Inappropriate Student/Teacher Relationships
There’s something about the student/teacher dynamic – television show seem to have a thing about teachers hooking up with their students. Over the years, so many teen dramas have introduced a romance between a teacher and student, and while sometimes, it’s shown to be inappropriate, other times it is introduced as being romantic. No matter what though, these kinds of relationships are always wrong, so here are TV’s 8 most inappropriate student/teacher relationships:
8. Aria Montgomery and Ezra Fitz – Pretty Little Liars
Aria Montgomery and Ezra Fitz hooked up before she knew that he was her teacher, but they still continued to see each other long after he found out that she was a high school student. The show definitely didn’t paint the relationship as inappropriate as it would have been had the situation been real. Even the actor who plays Mr. Fitz paints his character’s love with his student as a once in a lifetime kind of thing. “It’s kind of back to the whole push-pull – the whole conflict with these two people is heart vs brain. Ezra is very much about this being wrong. He knows it’s wrong as soon as he sees Aria in English class at 9 am. This is not a storm we should set sail in. At the same time, it’s real. It’s something that comes along once – maybe twice – in a lifetime. They need to act on it,” Ian Harding said. Yeah, okay, but dating a high school student is still considered illegal, so chew on that.
7. Susan Knight and Mr. Rooks – Veronica Mars
During season two of Veronica Mars, one of Veronica’s favorite teachers, Mr. Rooks, is accused of having an affair with his student, Carrie Bishop. Although Mr. Rooks didn’t actually have an affair with Carrie, he did have an affair with another student named Susan Knight, and got her pregnant! News of the affair led to him having to resign from his job.
