Kate McKinnon Says Goodbye in ‘Saturday Night Live’ Finale Cold Open

A sign that perhaps the departing “saturday night liveThe stars are returning to their biggest hits, and as they walk out the door, this week’s Cold Open offers at least two of them a crazy sendoff. For Kate McKinnon, that means her fan-favorite The alien abductee, Ms. Rafferty, once again shares a wildly inappropriate experience with NSA officers played by Aidy Bryant and Mikey Day.

After presenting her experience, McKinnon went into space as Ms. Rafferty after a final goodbye. This is apparently also McKinnon’s farewell. “Anyway, I feel like an alien on this planet,” the character said. “Okay Earth, I love you, thank you for letting me stay a little longer. Live from New York, it’s Saturday night!”

The clip opens with Bryant and Day, and the applause continues — apparently aimed at Bryant, who also leaves after the episode.
