It’s fitting that Hader is departing with as little fanfare as he came. There haven’t been weeks of a Hader-themed goodbye tour of his greatest hits. He hasn’t been waffling in the press as Sudeikis was dong a year ago. As Hader told Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times, ‘My joke was, we’ll start singing ‘Ruby Tuesday’ and just say bye to Kristen again. I can just do a little wave at goodnights, and that signifies it.’
Hopefully we, as the audience, will get more than that. Because it would be a shame to send off one of the greatest cast members in the history of SNL without some sort of emotional acknowledgement. Then again, because it’s Bill Hader, maybe just a wave during goodnights would be fitting.
