At the time Bellisario wrote Mirror Image no pitch to the network would have helped since Bellisario knew the series was cancelled.
One problem...

"So Don had to write an episode of this series that would allow us to come back if they picked is up, or it would allow for a future if there was going to be a movie, or allow it to also be a final episode if that were to be the case. I feel like if you watch the episode given that information, it becomes even more spectacular.

"Another Time, Another Place" hasn't gotten the best reviews on accuracy.
