Branden mentions to Kelly on the beach that he has never jumped in the ocean at night, has she? She says, no, but in the second season Kelly is flirting with the character Kyle who later ssays he is gay, and then Kelly takes off her clothes and then jumps into the ocean. She was much wilder as a high school student and seem to forget her wild ways.
When Noah is showing Valerie around his parents' home, you can see that Valerie is wearing strappy black sandles.
When Noah and Val walk into the kitchen, Valerie's shoes have clearly changed to full black platform shoes (no straps).
David: "Goodbye Brandon. Nine years, it's a long time for a group to hang out. High school, college, the real world. Death, drugs, depression, raging hormones, puberty... You name it, we've suffered through it all. We still are. Some people have moved away and others have joined. It hasn't really mattered though, the reason being we know we can depend on each other. We know we always will."

It's interesting because now that Brandon left, the original characters from before the Walshes moved there are back with the exception of Andrea Zuckerman. Also Luke Perry but he returns in two episodes as Dylan McKay.
If you listen to the story about Brandon and his first day of school. You realize it didn't actually happened that way. First example of that is he said he first met Donna but in the pilot the first of the main group he meets is in fact Steve. Also he never cut his chin what so ever. That whole story is wrong.
Now that Brandon is leaving, the original plot of the series (a Midwestern family moving to Beverly Hills) is gone. So in essence, the show is now about the people who lived there before the Walshes arrived.
This is Jason Priestley's final episode as a regular cast member.
