Hundreds of lucky fans gathered last night at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to watch the Breaking Bad finale with the cast and crew. Even Bryan Cranston (who's currently starring as LBJ in Cambridge, Mass) flew in for the event.

Aaron Paul and RJ Mitte donned the iconic yellow coveralls and gas masks for the event and fans could pose in their own yellow meth-cooking gear with the meth RV. And apparently Weird Al Yankovic was there?

Paul tweeted out the location of several tickets hidden around Hollywood in a scavenger hunt. (The $45 tickets for the event sold out within hours of going on sale. Proceeds went to the anti-bullying Kind campaign, co-founded by Paul's wife.)

Prior to the finale, the cast taped an episode of the post-show Talking Bad, where Anna Gunn got teary, Jimmy Kimmel weighed in and past regulars Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks showed up. Cranston sent in a taped segment as he was still on the East Coast. He flew in just for the finale event.
