Worker Fail Open Question

Had a small question about how "Fail Open" for worker routes works. It states that when it reachs request limit, additional requests will bypass to the origin, but what is the "origin." In particular, if the origin is proxied prior to the worker route, am I safe in the sense that the result with still be proxied via cloudflare? Just wanted to make sure

Yes, just the worker won't execute. For some things this may be fine, but if your worker was doing security checks for example, you would want fail closed.
