The cast and crew were midway through filing this episode when the City of New York, where the outdoor scenes are filmed, shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-March, 2020. They were expecting it to be only a couple of weeks to a month, and they were going to finish filming then. Unfortunately, the lockdown, or "shelter-in-place" directive, last longer than expect, with the first restrictions not being lifted until the end of April, 2020. Brian Dennehy
died of natural causes on April 15, 2020 and was not able to complete his work on this episode. See more
This is also a continuity error. The animated characters in the series are carrying Berettas as evidenced by the open slide design of a Beretta 92/96, not Glocks. A major firearm factual mistake. The FBI has never carried Berettas nor would they change from a Glock to a Beretta in the middle of a case. See more
In a segment run over the opening credits, cast members explain that production of this episode had to be halted due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. However, they cooperated to finish the episode via remote control: computer-generated animation scenes were interspersed with the finished live footage, titles added, and the voices dubbed by the cast actors. They also explained that, due to the production stoppage, this would be the last episode of Season 7 of "The Blacklist" See more
