    Notes (5)

    • Katherine Moennig has re-surfaced on Showtime's The L Word. This time she gets to be a girl.

    • Young Americans fans were thrilled in 2004-05 to see Ian Somerhaulder again in ABC's hit show LOST.

    • Casting directors remembered Matt Czuchry as Sean in Young Americans, and cast the heart-throb in another popular WB show, Gilmore Girls.

    • After starring in Young Americans, Kate Bosworth secured a movie role in Blue Crush, a movie about a surfer girl. She later was catapulted to fame, starring in several movies, and has dated Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom.

    • To the disappointment of fans everywhere, this was the last episode of Young Americans.

    Trivia (3)

    • The sign on the garage says that the auction will be on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

    • At one point in the episode, when they are in the cabin, it is said there is "nothing for twenty miles." In the morning, Sean confirms that Carson is ten miles away, if you follow the train tracks.

    • It takes two hours to get to Carson. In "Gone," we see Carson is only 35 miles away.
