Trivia

Although her character Brenda gives birth at the beginning of the episode, Rachel Griffiths was still, in reality, 8 and a half months pregnant with her own child. To disguise this fact, the costume and prop department had to devise numerous ways to hide her belly. These included dressing Griffiths in outfits with big shawls or capes, or having her hold a large purse between her body and the camera. One of the concerns when filming Brenda giving birth to Willa was that Griffiths would actually go into labor for real. Griffiths gave birth to her second daughter 3 days later. See more »

Goofs

In one scene, Ruth finds Maya's stuffed monkey lodged between the refrigerator and the wall in the kitchen, but in all previous shots of the fridge (after Maya has left) the monkey isn't there. See more »

Crazy Credits

In every episode, the end credits appear in white lettering over black. This is the only episode in which the end credits are in black lettering over white. This is also the only episode after the second season which features rolling credits as opposed to title cards, and the only episode in which all of the end credits are in scroll (seasons one and two feature a mix of cards, followed by a scroll).

After watching the last episode, I can see why it is so highly referred and praised. What made this such a great show was not the fact that it was about death and living in a funeral home, but how it was about life and the lives of the people living in that funeral home. The character's are extremely believable and compelling, the situations that they're put through are moving and the way they chose to end this series was beautiful. It is truly within the last 5-6 minutes that everything comes to fruition. Life moves on before Everything Comes To an End. To me, this is why it's such a excellent series.

One more thing...If you are in no way moved by the last bit of this series after watching it as a whole, then there's something wrong with you. Enjoy
