Ben Affleck hosted the Saturday Night Live season 38 finale last night with musical guest Kanye West. Missed the show? Check out these highlights!

Emotions were running high both on stage and at home last night as the Saturday Night Live episode was not only the finale for season 38, but it was also Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and quite possibly Jason Sudekis’ final episode too. Bill Hader and his über-popular character Stefon got the sendoff they deserved. He and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers had their big final moment, with help from Amy Poehler. Though it had would have seemed unlikely that they’d appear at the desk together again with Hader leaving now and Meyers leaving midseason next year, last night’s sketch seemed like the final word.

Fred Armisen also got what could be seen as his Saturday Night Live mini-sendoff (he appeared as Ian Rubbish, singing “It’s been alright. I’ve Had a Lovely Night With You.”) Though as he will likely continue to work with Lorne Michaels, we’d imagine he could easily return in cameos in the future.
