Kate McKinnon appears to say goodbye to Saturday Night Live in alien abduction sketch

Kate McKinnon appeared to bid farewell during the opening sketch of the season finale of Saturday Night Live. 

McKinnon, who was reported to be leaving alongside fellow veteran cast members Aidy Bryant, Pete Davidson and Kyle Mooney, brought back her recurring character Miss Rafferty in the show’s cold open.  

SNL first did a version of this sketch back in 2015 when Ryan Gosling hosted the show and became a noted crowd favorite for McKinnon’s ability to make other cast members break and laugh on air.

The sketch went by the usual formula of McKinnon, Cecily Strong and the host (this week was Natasha Lyonne) relating their alien abduction experiences to Pentagon officials, including Bryant. 

The sketch ended with the Pentagon officials telling the three that they needed a person to go with them in exchange for alien technology secrets. 

McKinnon’s Miss Rafferty immediately offered to go and appeared to give a goodbye to the show and planet earth. 

‘Well, earth, I love ya, thanks for letting me stay a while… live from New York, it’s Saturday Night,’ McKinnon ended the sketch, appearing to choke up.

Davidson has officially confirmed that he will be leaving Saturday Night Live after seven seasons on the sketch show.

In a lengthy Instagram post shared by the 28-year-old comedian’s friend Dave Sirus on Saturday, Davidson stated that tonight’s 47th season finale show will be his ‘last one’ as he thanked creator Lorne Michaels and the cast: ‘I owe Lorne Michaels and everyone at SNL my life.’

The video shared alongside the caption featured Davidson hugging comedian Jerrod Carmichael, 35, after doing his ‘very first update and sketch,’ with Davidson adding, ‘It’s crazy to think that today I’ll be doing my last one.’

Pete’s post was shared from his pal’s account after the comedian deleted his own Instagram following online harassment from girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s, 41, ex-husband Kanye West, 44. 

Davidson started out the emotional message writing: ‘This video was taken 8 years ago. Jerrod sent it to me last night and it made me super emotional in the best way.’ 

He then admitted that when he first joined SNL at age 20, he ‘had no idea’ what he was doing because he ‘wasn’t really a sketch performer.’

Davidson went on to praise his co-stars, noting, ‘I knew I could never keep up or go toe to toe with a Kenan Thompson or a Kate McKinnon so I was super scared at figuring out what I could possibly bring to or do for such a historic, respected show and platform.’

Davidson also revealed he is creating a TV show for Peacock called Bupkis, which is supposed to tell a ‘raw, unflinching, fictionalized’ version of his real life.

Edie Falco was announced to star as his mother, with SNL head honcho Lorne Michaels producing.  

McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney are also expected to be leaving the series.
