Now, I imagine that most viewers watched this hoping that Annie could get through to Abed.  But the whole time, I was rooting for Abed – I wanted him to make it clear why he didn’t exist in the world of Greendale Hospital School.  And then when Annie makes herself Abed, an imaginary Chang arrests her for the crime of being Abed.  He’s exiled to a locker, where Annie-Abed finds the real (virtual) Abed shackled to the wall.

ABED:  I’ve run the simulations, Annie.  I don’t get married; I don’t invent a billion-dollar website that helps people have sex; I don’t make it into Sundance, Slamdance, or Dance Pants – Troy invents Dance Pants in 2019, but don’t tell him, he needs to stumble onto it.
