Last Saturday's "SNL" hosted by Dakota Johnson did feature an envelope-pushing ISIS sketch. What it didn't feature: an actual parody of "50 Shades," weirdly enough.

One sketch would have changed that, but was ultimately axed for time. Johnson and Kyle Mooney (as Christian Grey) take a "behind the scenes" look at how the famous Red Room was assembled. Turns out, it truly takes a village to prep all those sex toys.
