Pete Davidson Made His Return To "SNL" And The Cast Made Even More Jokes About His Absence
Thank goodness he wasn't eaten by a Demogorgon.
Pete Davidson has been noticeably absent from Saturday Night Live since the show premiered two weeks ago.
Last week during "Weekend Update," Colin Jost joked that Pete was basically “a man who drove his car to a music festival and still cannot remember where he parked his car, a week after the show.”
In reality, he's been filming a small part in the upcoming Suicide Squad, though his role has still yet to be announced.
Well, Pete finally returned to the show during last night's episode and told the audience exactly where he's been — the Upside-Down.
During David Harbour's monologue, he and Kate McKinnon discover a portal to the Upside-Down.
He goes in and discovers Aidy Bryant/Barb, watches Beck Bennett get eaten by a Demogorgon...
...and finds Pete Davidson!
"Wait, no! It can't be! Pete Davidson??" David asks.
"Is this where you've been? In the Upside-Down?"
"Why don't you come back with me and you can do the show tonight?"
During "Weekend Update," he teases Jost about his previous comments, joking, "By the way, Colin, I don't know if you've seen the Joker, but I think you should start being waaay nicer to me."
No word yet on if Pete will be absent from future episodes, but at least he's great when he's there!
