After last week's post-election episode, with a chilling cold-open that mirrored 9/11 and a brilliant-yet-heavy Dave Chappelle monologueSNL's Thanksgiving episode paled in comparison. However, there was one moment that shined through: the return of the Surprise Lady.

We needed a reminder of simpler times, when the idea of Donald Trump being president-elect was completely ridiculous, and Kristen Wiig gave us that blast from the past. She came back with her chunky bright sweater and yellow turtleneck to completely lose her shit over a special Thanksgiving surprise: the return of Paul (Pete Davidson) after he's been away at the army. And, yes, she's so freakin' excited.
