As you’ve probably heard just a few times, Brick and Looper director Rian Johnson helmed last night’s barnburner of a Breaking Bad episode, his third outing for the series. This morning, the “Ozymandias” director tweeted out a series of behind-the-scenes photos from production, with some interesting tidbits of information. For instance: The flashback cold open was the final day of shooting on the entire series, which is a nice note to go out on, and yes, that is the pair of Walt’s pants from the pilot in the dirt as he’s rolling his barrel of cash. They’re all photographs taken by Johnson, mostly in black and white, featuring a bunch of the cast and crew on set—including a group shot of the neo-Nazis and one of Johnson's frequent collaborators—wistfully framed in a way that almost makes you miss the harrowing emotional turmoil of watching the episode. You can see the full array of photos in Johnson's Twitter feed, and a few highlights below.
