Contrary to internet rumors, Jo Marie Payton does not appear in this final episode. According to an interview she did with TVSeriesFinale.com, after reading of the rumors, JoMarie watched a copy of the episode online, and looked really hard to see if she was in it - even though she stopped working on the series several episodes earlier. In the interview she was quoted as saying, "I looked real hard too because I said, 'Well if I'm there, I think they owe me a check.' You know? (laughs). And I, I didn't see me. And I said 'Well.' And I looked, I looked real carefully and I said 'No, I wasn't there.' And then I looked at IMDb, they had it there, but they said 'uncredited'. And I'm saying 'I know I wasn't.' I was gone like, seven shows before that (laughs). I think they did six or seven shows and that's when they pulled it. And I'm done and gone by that time."
