Okay. Not my favorite monologue ever. She does have a lot of energy, but...okay. Also - her teeth are way too white...

The original Boyz II Men “Mama” song is so emotional. Ughhh. Even a remix to the song is emotional... it’s a beautiful song, particularly the original. 
 

I grew up with Boyz II Men and I wish they wouldn’t have remixed the original song...

Laughed way too hard at Let Kids Drink. And now I'm wondering when BoyZ II Men got old?! It wasn't that long ago my friend and I were heading to The Warehouse to buy their new tape.

Not to get too serious, but I agree with Che - it’s absolutely exhausting trying not to look suspicious in a white neighborhood when you live there. My family was the only family of color for some time to live in the neighborhood when I was in high school and it got old, quick. My dad used to get harassed daily when he went jogging by an old white bigot - thankfully he wasn’t shot though. Smh. Hurts my heart.

I actually counted the eggs to make sure I didn’t miss the joke. “One, two, seven, fourteen . . . not a dozen! Thank goodness.”

Shit, we’re watching one of those “infomercials” from Adult Swim that airs at 4 a.m.!

I think Mikey might have stumbled onto a 21st Century reboot of Problem Child. Why would Junior wreck birthday parties and baseball games when he can punk his dad and film it?

ETA: Should we read into Kyle having a framed poster for Jack, the movie where Robin Williams plays a ten-year-old with an aging disease?

Cold Open: Virtual Graduation! And of course they got Alec Baldwin Trump to speak. Yep, every college is now University of Phoenix but with worse tech support. I'm hoping that this is his last time as Trump. Sure, the election will hopefully still be happening when the show returns, and that'll be FUN.

Monologue: Kristen Wiig! Also it's the Mother's Day episode.

Deirdre: Martin Short!! And man, Dierdre would definitely make people wait four hours for her to show up on Zoom. And be in Italy during the quarantine.

Let Kids Drink: Oh my god this was great. Hilarious, but by far one of the darkest things I've ever seen from this show. Josh Gad and Olaf came out of nowhere. It was nice to see everyone's dogs.

Masterclass: Chloe once again knocking it out of the park. Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Britney Spears were spot on, but Melissa as John Mulaney was just a whole other level entirely. SNL would be idiots if they don't give either of them more to do next season.

Church: I liked how more people kept showing up to the call.

Danny Trejo: Loved this. It's gonna get stuck in my head.

Bouncy Waves: Kristen Wiig and the rest of the cast waved wigs around and made that a sketch. Kenan's wig was my favorite.

Boyz II Men: Now THIS is a musical guest! 

WU: Yep, news got super weird this past few weeks. Axl Rose beefed with Steve Mnuchin on twitter, and even that wasn't as weird as the Miss Hitler Beauty Pageant. And it was great to see Tina Fey again. I can't believe the $90,000 was so...disappointing. Che's joke for Colin was way better. And it was great to see Judge Jeannie again. Being able to edit outfit changes definitely helped her out here. She did not fail to disappoint.

What's Wrong With This Picture: This was fun, but my Closed Captioning ruined it. Had no idea that there were 14 eggs, or that the woman in the mirror wasn't wearing a necklace.

Eleanor's House: This got delightfully weird really quick. Tim and Eric are wondering how one of their sketches made it to SNL. All the people looked like they came out of GTA, especially Pete Davidson.

Brandon: Mikey's kid gets his own sketch! This was so great. "Dad, it's Gigi Hadid!" had me rolling.

A Lighthouse Keeper's Isolation Tips: So here's a sketch about The Lighthouse. I loved this so much, this is the kind of weird I'm here for. Loved her face at "I have a beard?!"

House of Kyles: The sloppy editing of all the Kyles on screen only made this better (especially on the split screen kiss). Of course Kyle has a Jack movie poster in his house.

Dreams: I really liked this one. I thought it was only going to be about Cecily and I was expecting this to be her official farewell sketch. Everyone waving to her and fading away really does point to that. Her going to see the Sonic The Hedgehog Musical slayed me. 

I dream about Popeye's too, Chloe. Also loved seeing Kenan in Tootsie, and Ego with Woody Allen.

Goodbyes: An actual goodnight from Kristen Wiig. Seeing that whole cast & crew pic was poignant. This one was less of a gut punch than the last two with the empty stage.

Last two At Home episodes: "Where's (Cast member)?" This one: EVERYONE IS HERE. Martin Short! Josh Gad! Danny Trejo! Tina Fey! Boyz II Men!

Well, that'll do it for this season. It's been fun. See you all...whenever it comes back. Kristen said September.

I hope they’ll post stills from the mothers’ tribute, with id’s. They went by so fast, and there were a lot I couldn’t identify. 
 

Same for the “dreams” segment at the end I feel like there was a lot I missed. Was that Pete’s dad with him at the game?

ETA  Also the drinking kids. I’d love to know whose were whose.

Given that Wonder Woman '84 was supposed to be coming out soon, I'm guessing Kirsten would have been a host under normal circumstances.

Dude. There's stuff written on ripped-up papers in the writers' room that's funnier than anything those two could think up. Like I said, this is something that would air on Adult Swim at 4 a.m.

Kenan next to Tootsie may have been my biggest laugh of the night.

Like the last episode, there was too little Alex Moffat. I hope he's ok. It definitely feels like he was sidelined for some reason.

These at Home Shows really brought out people's creativity. Pete for one has never been better on the show.

Damn I laughed at Trump's advice to graduates. "Surround yourself with the worst people ... if you don't understand something call it stupid." 

Always great to see Tina Fey and she's one of those women who totally looks better without much makeup. 

"Let Kids Drink" was amazing. 

Overall a successful episode and end to a great season.

I definitely hope not, but that's a really good observation. I said it before, but Cecily brings a lot to the show. Her impressions are the best.

I think it actually pointed towards the departures of those who waved.

Hasn't Jost basically talked about leaving?* He waved.  So did Kate McKinnon.  And Keenan who has his new sitcom. Aidy has been there as long as Kate and is now on the third season of her hulu show.  She probably could do both but she might feel like it's time for her to go.

Maybe Cecily goes too.  Or primarily.   But that was just the sense I got.

Spoiler

or maybe I am misinterpreting this since Jost has talked about a post election departure.

Pete has also never looked healthier. 

I lived the Master Class impressions.  Brittany Spears was good but I lived for the less done PWB and Mulaney.

Once Baldwin-Trump showed up, I skipped the rest of the skit.

"Let kids Drink" - LOL! ...It's cool that they got their kids involved... but are they getting a paycheck?

Yeah, church via zoom... can be a challenge.

"Danny Trejo" -- these At Home shows really seem like a good medium for Pete.

Boys 2 Men! ❤️❤️❤️  I'm glad they were still able to do Mother's Day tributes.

Has Little Richard ever been on the show?

I always like Game Show Kenan, so 'What's Wrong with this Picture' was fun.

Wiig was fine a host.

I loved Dreams.  The One person who  made me laugh was Michael Che.  Oh but I also love 'what's wrong with this picture'.   I think it's so funny.  I'd be happy if that was on every episode.  Elliott Pants!

I find it very cute that Mikey has been able to make the show a family affair.  It seems that he and his son really enjoy it.

I thought that I had built up a crunchy outer shell to Mother’s Day (my mom died years ago), but I guess with the pandemic and all, my emotions are more fragile, because I started ugly sobbing when Kristin thanked moms in the monologue.  For my mental health, I therefore noped out of Boyz II Men to my last channel watched, which was a CNN town hall just as Anderson Cooper said something super bleak, and I actually laughed because at that point karma was just teasing me.

Great at-home effort by the cast, though.

Cold open - I knew we were probably going to be getting this awful, lazy, cheap Trumpwin at some point. In an ideal world having it at the front of the show means at least he won't appear again. Up to that point I was glad to get to see the whole cast in a graduation type sketch.

Monologue That was a very Kristen Wiig monologue, in all meanings of that sentence. She gave it her all. (she's very funny in the soap spoof things Jimmy Fallon has done, if you haven't seen those). I remember there was some fan speculation about Kristen Wiig hosting this season for Wonder Woman II - never thought it would be for a pandemic.

Deirdre, AKA pretentious ugly American caricature, My favorite Heidi Gardner character - a true guilty pleasure. She's a strange fit for a zoom episode, but it was nice to see her again. And nice to see Martin Short, of course (I wish he'd played Jackie Rogers Jr.)

Let Kids Drink - A bit hacky, in a way the Ebersol kid sketches were at times. I did enjoy a few parts - the Disney inclusion (and Disney lawsuit inclusion), Mikey Day and his featured player son, Pete Davidson and his mother, and Beck Bennett and his ever-shaggier hair.

Masterclass - Glad to finally see Melissa Villasenor in one of these, with her priceless John Mulaney. Chloe Fineman was fantastic as Phoebe Waller Bridge - the Britney Spears was fine, but her life is a bit too sad and easy fodder for jokes for me to get into.

Zoom Church - Sketches about not being able to use zoom have been done everywhere by this point (including the first At Home), but I liked this one more than the first as it wasn't too long and made good use of the cast and extras.

Pete Davidson and Danny Trejo - If you've seen one of these "Pete is a fan of somebody who does a cameo" raps, you've seen them all. Just sort of there for me, although no RBG Gang, at least.

Hair and Wiig - It's nice to see Kristen Wiig being in more sketches than the hosts of the other two; this wasn't really for me, but Kristen committed to the whole thing (and the "serious" B&W disclaimers amused me).

Music - Fine. SNL used to parody Boys II Men all the time in the early and mid '90s, with songs like "Let Me Suck Your Big Toe," yet they were never on the show. Better later than never. The photos of the various mothers was genuinely touching (and if that was Kate's mother she looked just like her)

Update #1 Bog standard Jost and Che installment; not a bad thing. They played the beats well. The racist joke has been done enough times but Jost still makes it seem amusing; ditto for Che's drunken apathy. I'm looking forward to how they will adjust for their final season.

Update #2 Tina Fey, as always, has a great deal of screen presence, even as the material of the struggling mom in the pandemic has been done many times. A little long, but still the best thing she's done on the show since 2015 or so.

Update #3 Pirro has moved into "beyond parody" territory as of late, which was somewhat reflected in this appearance. Cecily Strong did give it her all, and I enjoyed the end with her managing to dunk Colin through the power of...space and time and sheer craziness.

What's In This Picture? - Not a sketch I needed to see again, as the last one was, for me, pretty bad, but the shorter running time and sharper writing gave me more positive feelings. Melissa was in especially good form

Aidy's House - The type of slow-burning visual horror and deadness that other shows tend to cover; it's always interesting to see the form pop up here. Aidy played everything just right. The visuals, especially Kyle being tasered and electrocuted, were appropriately creepy

Son Pranks - Mikey Day's son continues to vault into being a cast member next season. This was probably my favorite of the night - a perfect use of Mikey's slow burn and physicality (and he should wear glasses more often) and it felt all too believable.

Lighthouse - A good use of Kate McKinnon's zany charms and ability to sell what she's given when it's in this type of format

Classy, brief tribute to Little Richard - pleasantly surprised as he was never on SNL. The lasting impact of Little Richard Simmons. Little Richard never let anyone tell him what to do or who to be, a complex and unbelievably talented, irreplaceable figure.

Kylepalooza - Porn for Kyle Mooney fans (not literally - unless you really enjoyed the thigh or bare-chested shots, anyway). Peak Kyle. I always enjoy Kyle's non-musical pieces on here a little more. Perfect use of his talents in the absurd quarantine format. I would say the Kyle Mooney showcases for much of the season mean he's leaving, but I said that last season with the Kyle and Leslie piece so clearly I shouldn't be in the prediction game.

Dreams - An exquisite piece. It's been ages since I remember a finale giving a chance to reflect, say goodbye. Combining the sights of New York with absurdity, melancholy, letting us speculate on who is leaving, but also on where we are. Gary Weis and Tom Schiller would be proud.

Goodnights - It almost felt like trolling (I'm sure it wasn't) that Kristen Wiig, one of the more polarizing cast members, gets a credits sequence to roll around in bed, a first and likely a last. It did crack me up, whether intended or not.

This started out with the usual finale blahs, but, while I still have complaints (where was Alex Moffat?), everything from Update on clicked; some terrific material toward the end. A fitting sendoff for a season that often veered from rolling your eyes to catching your breath

Cut song featuring Chris Redd, Ego Nwodim and Kenan Thompson. Honestly this is really good - everyone (especially Chris) is in great form, capping up a strong season for all three. Wish it had been left in the episode.
