The carefree performance -- featuring an increasingly emotional Murray -- was an all-around joyful conclusion to a politics-heavy "Weekend Update" segment, as well as a nice complement to the Cubs' long-awaited victory after a 108-year drought.
In the bizarrely dark segment, Cumberbatch and new SNL castmember Mikey Day play exotic dancers at a bachelorette party who are giving a lap dance to an old woman (Aidy Bryant), who, unbeknownst to everyone else at the party, is dead.
After Cumberbatch rubs his crotch in Bryant's face and eats a cherry out of her mouth (all without her breaking character, somehow), he announces that the old woman has won a group lap dance from the World Series champs.
Out came Fowler, Rizzo and Ross, who seemed to have a great time hamming it up, and didn't shy away from showing some skin, as they pulled off their best stripper moves up against a dead lady.
This was SNL's last episode before the general election on Nov. 8, and the show subverted expectations with their amazing cold open, which saw Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon break character as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for an emotional and inspirational message about unity and the importance of voting.
