Answer: The money was from the magazine that paid Gale for his story.

Question: What was the purpose of Berlin? What she planted to stage the rape? Or, was she really trying to get revenge? What did the postcard mean at the end of the movie in the money case?

Answer: I believe that she was a plot device to make sure David Gale had nothing to lose by the end of the movie. She then may have felt guilty about casual sex, and tried to get back at Gale. She then later felt guilty about the whole charade, and wrote him a postcard admitting what she had done. Then the postcard is given to the ex-wife to show he was innocent of rape.

David had asked Bitsy and, presumably, Dusty, to preserve his son's memory of him. So they/he/she forwarded the postcard from Berlin so his ex would know he was innocent of the rape charge. Along with money for his son.

Answer: I think David's wife was having an affair and wanted out of the marriage. She paid Berlin to seduce David and accuse him of rape.

Continuity mistake: When Jamie tells David that he has something important to ask him, the quilt is pulled up to Jaime's chest, but when the camera angle changes to a close-up, the quilt is now pulled down to his stomach. (00:25:21)
