* HateSink: Nate Griffin is the Alpha Dog of Darlington and Kennedy's boyfriend who raped Jules and one other girl before the series. Throughout the series, Nate continues to scare Jules and tries to turn Kennedy against her. Nate refuses to take responsibility and generally seems to believe he did nothing wrong, getting more exasperated the more he's confronted. In a drug-fuelled rant, Nate says that victims deserve to get raped and that he is untouchable.


* DarkActionGirl: Chloe and her fellow Kappa leaders in the fourth episode turn out to have enough self-defense training to fight back better than most of their male targets. It is still not enough to beat Jules and Ophelia, though.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Darlington University is located in the fictional town of Westport, but the show gives no clear indication as to Westport's location in the United States. However, it's hinted that it's in the Northeast/New England region, close to the Canadian border, as seen when Jules and Ophelia cover up [[spoiler:Carter's death]] by making it look as though he'd run off to Quebec to go snowboarding. License plates show that it is in the "Rolling Hills State"; this would seem to evoke Vermont, the "Green Mountain State", especially since the plates' green-and-white pattern is vaguely similar to Vermont license plates, but the name "Westport" implies that it's on the coast, while Vermont is landlocked.
