‘A Million Little Things’: 3 Plot Holes That Truly Bother Fans in Season 4

ABC’s A Million Little Things Season 4 continues to raise awareness about mental health; however, there are at least three plot holes that fans cannot ignore. Maggie (Allison Bloom) and Gary (James Roday Rodriguez) finally reunited this season. Rome (Romany Malco) and Regina (Christina Moses) stumbled upon new jobs. Theo (Tristan Byon) is coping shockingly well with his parent’s divorce and their new love interests. Although viewers know it’s a TV show, not real life, there are some things that fans can’t overlook.

‘A Million Little Things’ Season 4: Regina and Val park their food truck anywhere

One plot point that bothers fans is Regina’s new food truck with her friend, Val (Andrea Navedo). In A Million Little Things Season 4 Episode 17, Regina and Val parked the truck right in front of a local high school. In another episode, they parked in a neighborhood where patrons remarked never had a food truck. 

“Anyone else find it weird that they can just park the food truck anywhere, no problem?” one fan asked on Reddit. “I feel like normally food trucks need licenses or something, and I highly doubt in front of a school like that would be allowed.”

Viewers can’t help but wonder how Regina and Val can park their food truck wherever they want. Fans find it so odd that many are waiting for the bizarre parking locations to become a plot point in the series. In Boston, there is a 67-page document detailing the steps new business owners must go through to own and operate a food truck. The process is extensive, and it seems like the food truck happened too quickly and easily for Regina and Val in A Million Little Things Season 4.

‘A Million Little Things’ Season 4: Rome is suddenly a teacher

The second plot point that bothered fans in A Million Little Things Season 4 is how easily and quickly Rome became a teacher at Sussex Prep School. He showed the students his documentary in one episode. Then only a few episodes later, Rome’s friend called to offer him a position teaching an elective course. 

“How could Rome just stroll in and be a teacher?” another Redditor wrote. “That’s ridiculous.”

Although Rome turned out to be a very open and understanding teacher, it didn’t stop fans from wondering if he needed a teaching certificate.

This plot point isn’t as troublesome as fans might think. According to the U.S. Department of Education, Massachusetts private schools do not require teacher certification. Rome could genuinely become a teacher at a private school in Boston.

Theo’s age is a plot hole that fans can’t stop talking about in ‘A Million Little Things’ Season 4

In A Million Little Things Season 4, Theo is currently 12 in the timeline. However, what bothers viewers is that he doesn’t act like a typical middle schooler. Early in the season, Theo rejoiced over grabbing the glitter for a series of posters he made for his first crush. He still has a jungle-themed bedroom and wears dinosaur onesies.

“He’s 12, only a few yrs under Danny!” one Redditor wrote. “Yet they have Theo’s room decorated like a 1st grader with dinosaurs and balloons. I wish the set designers would wake up and redesign his room like a 12-year-old room. Even Michelle and Stephanie’s room on Full House was more mature than this.”

In some ways, Theo seems mature when he speaks to Katherine about the divorce and his parents dating other people. However, in other scenes, he’s written more like a 5-year-old. It truly bothers fans.
