Danny Worsnop told Kerrang! magazine the story of this song: "'Final Episode' was me and Ben (Bruce, guitar) when we started writing together and we were jamming. We had the lyrics, but I was actually the guitarist at this point. So we had these lyrics and I went into the vocal booth to just do a rough take of them, so we could send it to singers, to try out for the band."
"I went in, and when I walked out, they instantly fired me on guitar and told me I was a singer," he continued." "I think it took literally about 30 or 40 minutes. It was pretty much just jammed out there and then, and it hasn't changed since that very incarnation of it."
