SNL’s Aidy Bryant Gets Kissed Goodbye in Weekend Update Segment

Aidy Bryant‘s departure from Saturday Night Live was confirmed during a Weekend Update piece during Season 47’s conclusion, where her and Bowen Yang‘s beloved “Trend Forecasters” added a touch of melancholy to their crazily over-the-top atmosphere.

Bryant and Yang tell the audience what’s “in” (“Grapes with seeds!”) in a fast-paced sketch. “I’m impressing for sex by tying cherry stems with tongue!” “Watermelon! Sugar!” and “out!” (“Navel orange!”). It’s a scene that relies heavily on the actors’ desire to commit to a level of self-importance that would make foreign diplomats and youngsters swoon. “What’s next?” for example. “Honeydews with c-section scars?!?” provides hard punchlines that the show occasionally lacks.

It’s entertaining to watch them chastise co-anchor Michael Che (who, predictably, ends the segment by wearing all the things they’ve just said are out of style), and even more entertaining to watch them try to break each other by slamming the desk or cramming even more drama into a line reading while pressing their heads together.

However, in the final category, “Future Trends,” the couple revealed some of their true feelings. In: “Ten nice years,” referring to Bryant’s run on Saturday Night Live. In: Yang describes his companion as “a friend I couldn’t have done this without.” She ends the sketch by saying, “My best guys kissing me,” as Che and Yang lean in for a kiss. Even if the subtext is, “Go to bed, bitch!” it’s a nice moment and a fitting farewell for one of her most remembered characters.

After this weekend’s season finale, Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, and Kyle Mooney were all believed to be leaving Saturday Night Live.

“I owe Lorne Michaels and everyone at SNL my life,” Davidson said of his eight-year stay. I’m eternally grateful to them, because without them, I wouldn’t be here.”

In the meantime, McKinnon said her goodbyes with an early sketch during the finale, recreating her alien-abducted Mrs. Rafferty character and emotionally waved goodbye to Earth/the audience.
