How’d they pull it off? TVLine sat down with Daniel, who wrote and directed the installment (titled, appropriately, “We’re going to the Catskills”), series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and leading lady Rachel Brosnahan (whose Midge is front and center in the sequence) to find out.

All 10 episodes of Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 are currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
