'SNL' Bids Farewell to Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump in 'Sopranos' Finale Style

The season 43 finale also features Tina Fey returning to the show to serve as the host as well as revive her fan-favorite Sarah Palin impression.

AceShowbiz - "Saturday Night Live" aired its season 43 finale which saw the long-running comedy sending off Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump in the infamous "Sopranos" series finale style. In the cold opening, POTUS was spotted in a diner in Bloomfield, New Jersey, where he met Kate McKinnon's Rudy Giuliani, Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen and Mikey Day's Don Jr. Also making appearance in the skit were Robert De Niro's Robert Mueller and Alex Moffat's Eric Trump, the latter of which was busy "parallel-parking outside."

As Journey's "Don't Stop Believin' " played in the background, the comedy show's version of POTUS, Giuliani, Cohen and Don Jr. were seen trying to figure out how to protect the president. Giulani suggested to fake Trump's death.

The season finale also featured Tina Fey returning to the show to serve as the host. In her monologue, Fey took questions from the audience and the first question was from Jerry Seinfeld, who wonder if she thought there were just too many celebrity cameos these days. Benedict Cumberbatch, De Niro, Chris Rock, Fred Armisen, Anne Hathaway and more later made a quick cameo.

In the wake of royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there's no way "SNL" would not tackle the big event in that night's episode. In a skit titled "Royal Wedding", Day's Harry "a.k.a. Ron Sleazely" offered more insight into the wedding reception. Cecily Strong's Kate Middleton looked a little bit tipsy after drinking one glass of champagne. Queen Elizabeth II was having a chill time with Markle's great-uncle (Kenan Thompson). Meanwhile, Moffat's Prince William enjoyed his tea with prince Louis on his lap. Fey also made appearance on the skit as his "Aunt Creepy."

During the episode, Fey revived her fan-favorite Sarah Palin impression in "Sarah Palin Advice". Fey's Palin delivered a message to everyone in the Trump White House, "Take it from me, politics is a wild ride; one minute you're on top, and then you're gone in the blink of a Scaramucci."

She was joined by McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway, Armisen's Michael Wolf, Leslie Jones' Omarosa, John Goodman's Rex Tillerson and Strong's Stormy Daniels. They performed a rendition of "I Did for Love" from "A Chorus Line", only that they changed it to "What I Did for Trump".

As for "Weekend Update", Michael Che delivered news about Markle marrying "an unemployed dude who's still living off his grandma." The highlight of the segment was probably the return of Moffat and Day's Trump brothers.

When Don Jr. answered anchor Colin Jost's question, Eric was busy mimicking his brother's gesture and when the older asked him for a high-five, Eric kissed his hand instead.
