‘Saturday Night Live’ serves up an intriguing finish

Watch: ‘Saturday Night Live’ cold open

The season finale of “Saturday Night Live” began with an opening segment that harkened back to the final episode of “The Sopranos.”

President Trump (played by Alec Baldwin) gathered at a New Jersey diner for a meal with Rudy Giuliani (Kate McKinnon), Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller), and Eric Trump (Alex Moffat), and Donald Trump Jr. (Mikey Day).

There’s only one problem: Robert Mueller (Robert De Niro) is camping out at a corner table.

The episode’s host was former cast member Tina Fey, so naturally there was an appearance by Fey’s Sarah Palin character.
