It’s time to say goodbye to America’s ski-masked sweetheart, a man only known by his alias, “Jon.” Before you frantically check your DVR, cursing yourself for somehow missing these mysterious episodes, there is no fourth season with our favorite voice-warped reality show star. Instead, Delocated will end with a single, Bourne Identity-esque 30-minute special (12:30 a.m. Friday, Adult Swim).
Since 2010, we’ve witnessed the trials and tribulations of one man in witness protection with a hankering for fame. “Jon” never let anything get in the way of making his (fake) name known — not even repeated threats from Russian mobsters or the murder of nearly everyone close to him. I think we can all learn a thing or two from this man’s courage.
After being kidnapped by Sergei during last season’s reunion show, Jon awakes on a nasty New York shore, unclear of who he is — the ultimate witness protection? But if Jon doesn’t find help fast, he risks being caught by one of his many accumulating enemies.
Could the aroma of Nicky’s Grinders or some killer skins bring him back? Does amnesiac Jon love a good ‘breve as much regular Jon? Will fans finally get an uncensored look at his unmasked visage? It would be perfect to finally have Jon take off his mask, only to reveal a face that isn’t Jon Glaser’s. Oh, what a ride it’s been with “Jon.” And what a crunch-ry!

Look out for Cincy-born model Isaac J. Sullivan on the runway.

Saturday Night Live (11:30 p.m., NBC) – Regardless of how you feel about his music, Justin Timberlake generally guarantees a good episode of SNL. Perhaps it’s due to his Mickey Mouse Club past?
