The 61-year-old actor was searching for croissants — the food item that has become Patinkin's calling card ever since the much-talked-about Season 3 finale of the Showtime drama, which found Saul (Patinkin) seeking relaxation in Greece with the help of the flaky pastry.
The actor, though, admits he was taken aback by the response the scene has generated.
"I had no idea people were so moved by it," he joked.
As for the other most-talked-about scene, the death of Brody (Damian Lewis), Patinkin doesn't expect it to be an absolute end.
"I believe he died," Patinkin stressed. "There's no doubt about it. But I wouldn't doubt if we see him in dream form. He was the love of Carrie's life. And the father of her child. How could she not think about him?"
