SNL's cold open focused on the Vice Presidential debate between Sen. Kamala Harris and current VP Mike Pence, bringing back Jim Carey as Joe Biden and the fly on Pence's head.
During the new season's cold open, Pence, played by Beck Bennett, curtsied as he was introduced by debate moderator Susan Page, played by Kate McKinnon.
As he took his seat, Harris, played by Maya Rudolph, danced onto the stage, spraying cans of Lysol in both hands.
The two candidates were separated by 'buffet-style sneeze guards' because 'one of you works for patient zero,' a dig at President Trump and many of his supporters being diagnosed with coronavirus following a 'superspreader' event at the White House's Rose Garden.
