Kylo Ren is going undercover again.
Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live for the third time and delighted fans with the return of an instant classic from his 2016 hosting debut: “Star Wars Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base.” The original pre-taped sketch — an Undercover Boss spoof — saw Driver in character as Star Wars: Force Awakens baddie Kylo Ren going undercover on Starkiller Base as a blond radar technician named Matt to spy on the First Order. The sketch instantly went viral.
Four years and two more Star Wars movies later, Driver is back on SNL, and so is Kylo for a special Undercover Boss “Where Are They Now?” episode. The Supreme Leader of the First Order admits he “hasn’t been the best boss lately” due to some “personal drama” so he’s going undercover again, this time as beanie-clad Randy, an entry-level intern who tries to fit in by randomly dropping, “OK, Boomer.”
Once again, Kylo’s cover is quickly blown when he can’t control his temper — or his powers.
During “Friday fun day drinks,” Randy is won over by a young woman (Chloe Fineman) upset after learning the only way to achieve her dream of becoming a TIE Fighter pilot is via direct order from Kylo Ren. The following day, he grants her wish only to learn she wants to “fly like Luke Skywalker,” which he doesn’t take well. “And now you’ll die like him, too,” Kylo-Randy whispers as he kills her, capping it off with a signature, “OK, Boomer.”
Still, Kylo seems happy with how things go his second time around on the show. “I made four new friends and only killed one of them. I’d say that’s a pretty good start,” he declares.
