Portions of this episode were shot in an actual, functioning funeral home.
During shooting, the trailers were located on the other side of the building from the set, causing cast and crew to have to go through the funeral home when it was time to shoot.
Moving equipment through the funeral home rather than around it saved the crew time, but frequently caused congestion in the hallways due to the presence of empty caskets and gurneys throughout.
On the first day of shooting at the funeral home, a PA was taking Jimmi Simpson (Lloyd Lowery) and Domenick Lombardozzi (Ray Zancanelli) to the set, and decided to use the shorter route through the building rather than traveling all the way around. Finding themselves caught in a traffic jam of camera gear and funeral home equipment, the PA did what he had to do to get the actors to set, and picked up a casket to clear a path. What he didn't realize until he bent down to move it was that this particular casket was occupied. Jimmi and the PA spent the rest of the day feeling "freaked out."
Dominic Keating plays Bob Dixon - a very scary dude - in this episode of Breakout Kings, and has played tough guys before in shows like Heroes (double-crossing Irish gangster), Star Trek: Enterprise (tactical/armory officer), and Sons of Anarchy (road captain of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club's Belfast chapter). However, like any good actor, Mr. Keating has tremendous range. In an interview with Metro, he said:
"I made my professional debut doing a drag act. I got my Equity card doing it. We first performed at the Vauxhall Tower, in 1985 or 1986. We were a double act, me and a boy called JonJon who I met in my dance class at the time." via Metro
