“The filming of the end of The Americans,” as Weisberg called it, took place in a warehouse in Brooklyn in early March, where the ground was made to look like it was covered in snow and a green screen was set up to feature a different backdrop and have the show not look like it was filmed in a warehouse.
After the cameras began rolling, Fields cautioned, “We can’t tell you what happened next because that would be a really big spoiler.” But, in an extensive introduction that praised the show’s hard-working cast and crew, he did reveal that the camera and grip departments worked together to swing a light back and forth over the windshield of a car to look like other cars were passing by in the opposite direction and the props department used a plank to shake the car so it looked like it was moving.
