Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • In the Flashback from "The Authority", the sence is mirrored; in the scence from the actual episode, Felicity and Billy entered the screen from the right, not the left.

  • When Felicity and Nicole are arguning on where Anais and Billy ran off to, Felicity's hands are not actually touching the steering wheel.
