Early this week, cast member Bill Hader announced that he’s leaving the show, which left plenty of time to put together a silly, touching sendoff. Not surprisingly, the sketch featured Hader’s most popular character: the flamboyant “Weekend Update” city correspondent Stefon. After a squabble with host Seth Meyers, Stefon storms off to get married. (We won’t ruin the surprise — you have to watch to see who the groom is.) With a nod to The Graduate, Meyers breaks up the wedding and the two run off, happily ever after, back to the “Weekend Update” desk. The sketch also seemed to serve as an early farewell to Seth Meyers, who’ll be heading over to Late Night in 2014.
Let’s all take a moment to bid Stefon adieu. You will be greatly missed. Who’ll keep us in the loop about New York’s hottest clubs now?
