Farewell, Vice Dean Laybourne – this was such a good wrap-up to Troy’s “destiny” storyline. The Thunderdome-style Sun Chamber, the bizarre rules of the Annex – it’s especially funny to me that Troy finally calls them out for being weird. In a show with this much surrealism, it’s nice when the characters are still grounded enough to realize when things just aren’t right. And note that Laybourne’s beard is gone in this episode, which I guess means that he died a good guy. (Remember, he had the evil beard when he was actively trying to split up Troy and Abed.) When you look at the season as a whole, Troy and Abed really ended up carrying a lot of the emotional weight – the finale focuses heavily on their long-running arcs, the pillows vs. blankets episodes focused on them, it’s kind of been their season.
