This was the final episode made in season two. Co-creator Larry David thought the show was going to be cancelled, so he decided to end it with Jerry and Elaine back together as a couple, which is what NBC executives had been asking for. Ironically, NBC showed the final four episodes of the second season out of order. This episode was fourth from the last, so the final three episodes, having been made before this one, made no reference to Jerry and Elaine as boyfriend and girlfriend. And after the show was picked up for a third year, no further reference was made to Jerry and Elaine and their one episode reunion.
