What I do when I need to increase the number on a GiP file is this :-
maxexistingtrack=$(ls "${parentdir}/${subdir}" | sort -n | tail -1 | sed
        [exclude more code]

I split the tracks on multiples of 10 and that's what the extra code
does and hence why I've not included that.

Plainly you'd need to tidy that up but you could use something similar
to check the episode numbers of the files and increase that by one,
rename the latest downloaded file and if you're bothered, add that to
the metadata of the mp4.
