This episode was filmed at the beginning of the fifth season. The final episode of season 5, "Sleeping in Light", was actually filmed at the end of the fourth season. At the time that production on the fourth season wrapped, it was still unclear whether a fifth season would be produced or if the show would be canceled. When the show was renewed, they filled the last slot in the fourth season with a new episode, and showed Sleeping in Light at the end of the series. Because all story arcs of season 4 had been resolved in "Rising Star" they just couldn't add another "normal" episode - so the look into the future became practical. See more
