Could anyone figure out what scale this riff is possibly in?

It's part of A harmonic minor I think....

Hard to tell specifically out of context, but follows the A Harmonic Minor pattern. Or E Phyrgian with a major third?

What key is the song in?
Oh yeah.

Yeah, then you definitely switched from E minor to some type of exotic scale. Wish I knew more.
Oh yeah.

...no.

It's just A harmonic minor. You must've just thought you were playing in E. It does end on an E, but that's just the fifth of A. Play it over an Am chord and you can hear it.
