Narrated explanation of Doug's video here, going into detail on the optics/physics of what is happening at each stage of the flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJ6nn8fZOmc
At 4:55 another video confirms the fairings separated and fired their own RCS thrusters! Any word on if they were actually recovered? I've seen no photos so my assumption is no.
