  • According to Dunham, this episode acts as a more traditional series finale while the actual series finale "Latching" served as an epilogue.
  • This episode marks the final episode to feature all four female leads together. It is also the final appearance of Elijah.
  • The "group meeting" between the girls was initially meant to take place in the living room, but Jenni Konner suggested they do it in the bathroom since many notable moments from the show have happened in bathrooms.
  • The scene was also the first time they have filmed in Shoshanna's bathroom with the door closed given how small it is.
  • An alternative line for Shoshanna was for her to say that the last six years have been a waste of time.
