This episode had no normal recap music, instead using the
song He Don’t Love You by Human Nature. The producers
had originally scheduled this as the season finale, but Network
Ten extended the show’s run by two weeks at the last minute,
meaning that Episode 3680 actually
became the last episode of the year.
