Saturday Night Live's season finale was full of surprises goodbyes and guest stars. While it was hosted by Oscar winner Ben Affleck the show stealer was a tribute to eight season cast member Bill Hader who announced last week that he would be leaving the cast.
The Saturday Night Live cast paid appropriate homage to Hader and his beloved character Stefon with a surprising wedding sequence. In the sketch Stefon the city correspondent for Weekend Update tells Seth Meyers he is leaving to get married. Meyers finally coming to terms with his overwhelming love for Stefon (after some advice from former co anchor Amy Poehler) chases after him in true The Graduate wedding crashers style.
But just wait until you see who Meyers has to fight to get Stefon back.
But it wasn't just Hader who SNL had to bid farewell to. Last week reports surfaced that cast members Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis would also be leaving the show. While NBC hasn't confirmed the rumors the final sketch in last's night's show Top of the Pops might be a clear indicator of the changes to come.
In the sketch Armisen Sudeikis Hader and Taran Killam played a British rock band on the last night of their tour.
In a touching and foreshadowing moment Armisen said It s the last night here.
But we re going to keep playing together Hader responded.
Despite all the goodbyes Affleck still had his moment in the sun when he joined SNL's Five Timers Club. Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner joined him during his monologue to congratulate him and clear up some of their marital issues.
