“Community” is saying goodbye to Troy Barnes — and actor Donald Glover — in the upcoming episode, “Geothermal Escapism.” But it can’t be a simple farewell on a show like this. Instead, look out for post-apocalyptic festivities when Troy leaves Greendale.
The whole thing starts when Abed (Danny Pudi) plans an epic going-away party for his best friend. Things quickly transform from there into a Thunderdome-style competition.
It all starts out normal enough with a small gift from Annie (Alison Brie).
And then … It’s not so normal.
Even Professor Buzz Hickey (Jonathan Banks) gets in on the insane action.
What’s up in the sky?
Jeff and Troy say goodbye.
Could it all be OK between Troy and Abed in the end?
The “Geothermal Escapism” episode of “Community” airs Thursday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m.
