By making sure the episode was never finished (final editing) until after we'd
finished shooting S5. I let it sit in the Avid, unfinished, until I was ready.
That also prevented WB or anyone else from getting it and having the cut hit
the streets in an unauthorized way, which I felt could happen if the cut was
just laying around for a year. By keeping it all in the system, in pieces, it
(and I) was safe.
