It's an easy answer.

The final 4 would get aired in October. If there's no season
5, then the fourth one aired is 422, "Sleeping in Light."

If there is a season 5, 422 is yanked out of the mix and moved
down to occupy 522's slot, and we shoot 501 and get it done in time to
air in place of 422 in October.

There's no need for confusion. Season 4, as you know, takes
place in 2261. Season 5 would take place in 2262.

422, or 522, depending on the breaks, takes place in 2281. So
it plays just fine either way.
