‘SNL’ Video: Cecily Strong Goodbye Sketch, Leaving – Watch

Although Cecily Strong’s exit from Saturday night live been in the cards for a while, most were surprised when they announced just hours before tonight’s airing that this would be their final episode. However, she was duly given a farewell with two sketches relating to her departure.

The first was the return of Cathy Ann, a messy woman who is constantly trying to light her cigarette, on Weekend Update. She is on the way to prison for, among other things, “drug use, trespassing, destruction of property (crack), posing as a police horse (meeeeeth and crack)”. Prison here was a thinly veiled metaphor for leaving the show; She shared a picture of two of her friends inside – Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon, who both left the show earlier this year.

Horrifying stories about her sextape with Michael Che and her plea bargain (life without parole turns out to be a pretty good deal, all things considered) soon made way for Strong, who partially dropped the character to talk about what for a great time she had SNL. It was a touching part.

But Strong’s second goodbye was one of the most impressive onscreen goodbyes the show has ever done. In the vein of some of her best work – like her clown character talking about abortion – a deliberately thin premise overlaid a Radio Shack Christmas party on Kenan Thompson (with one of the greatest bad sketch names of all time, Mr. Frank Lasagna). some very real and moving things about Strong’s time SNL.

It ended with host Austin Butler singing “Blue Christmas” as casual Elvis, which grew into a full cast version. Strong broke down a bit when she didn’t cry during the performance, and it was a nice send-off for one of the show’s mainstays.

Fun fact: With this episode, Strong sets the record for most episodes by a female actor, beating the previous record holder – Kate McKinnon – by one. Well that’s a strong finish.

Watch Strong’s finale SNL sketches above, and then grade the episode.
