Goof: In the final fight scene between Trey and Ryan, when they fall through the coffee table their heads are toward the door. When Marissa walks in they are facing the other way with Trey's back toward the door.
The movie Hailey is watching when Sandy comes to talk to her is the 1952 Joan Crawford film This Woman is Dangerous.

Response To Goof: They would have bought more vodka for the party so how do you know it wasnt from the supply the bought for the party.
Both season finales have had a scene in a cathedral, and the cathedral in this episode looks a lot like the cathedral from "The Ties that Bind".
The "cathedral" is a church made out of glass. It is a Catholic church in Palos Verdes, CA. Both season finales were filmed there.
This is the second time a character has pointed a gun in someone else's face and said, "Who's the bitch now?" The first was in episode five, "The Outsider," with Donny and Luke.
Goof: In the previous episode, Kirsten says she's going to the kitchen to dump out every last drop of alcohol in the house. But in the season finale they show her pouring more vodka into her glass from the same bottle.
Goof: In the episode before this at the Prom, we see Marissa's bruise is gone. How did it suddenly re-appear?
Answer: Makeup. For a big event like the prom you would probably hide a bruise like that.
Bad editing: In the scene where Jimmy and Hailey are talking about Hawaii in the "north shore", the shot focusing on Hailey shows her facing away from Jimmy. As they cut to a shot focusing on Jimmy, Hailey is magically facing towards Jimmy again.
Goof: Jimmy talks about taking "the boat" out with Julie. Which boat? The one he sailed to Hawaii? Did he sail it all the way back after Caleb died?
Goof: Jimmy's silhouette can be seen in the door but when it is opening (on an angle) it doesn't go away or change shape.
Goof: When Trey falls down next to the couch after being shot by Marissa, you can clearly see there is no bloody wound near his right shoulder blade. It then cuts to Marissa and then back to Trey on the floor- now there is a wound.
Goof: What happened to Kirsten's scraped up forehead from the car crash? It couldn't have healed that fast and there isn't even a scar.
Goof: Did anyone bother to at least call Lindsay and tell her that her father that she waited her whole life to meet is dead?
In the middle of Caleb and Kirsten's conversation, Caleb tells her to think of her kids. This is the first time that Caleb references Ryan as being part of the family.
This is the second time that Alan Dale has died of a heart attack on TV. The first was in 1993, when he played Jim Robinson on Neighbours.
Trey asks for two Seven and Sevens at the bar. That is the drink that Ryan asked for from the open bar in the first episode (neither time did he actually get his drink). His mother also asked for one in "The Gamble".
Goof: Julie attempts to poison Caleb by opening up his Ambien sleeping pill capsules and pouring the contents into his margarita. The prescription sleep aid Ambien is only available in tablet form.
Alan Dale (Caleb Nichol) dies at the end of this episode. He is the second person to die on the OC the first being Max Bloom
In this episode we learn that Kirsten's mother was also a heavy drinker, and that her sister Hailey left home at 17.
