Let me be the first to say that I did not, in fact, see that season ending coming.
But it had it all: giant cookies, a kegger involving top hats, a tranny queen, dalmatian fetishes, John Olivier getting knocked out with a roll of quarters, and Leonard doing Tai-Chi.
All this and I believe they managed to tie up at least 6 dangling plot threads they had going from throughout the season.
Dino saying "BRING BACK CONAN" was a nice touch.
That was the best part.
"Britta's lame, Team Slater."
"Bring back Conan!"
I saw that ending coming during at least half of the episode. I'm pleased, very pleased with it.
Except...this was the season finale, could they not find a way to make Joel McHale shirtless?

I thought so, too. I can only assume that this was their way of planting a seed for a reoccurring subplot. (Troy has a gift for plumbing/dropping out of school.)So, did they resolve the Good Will Plumbing bit or what? I felt like the end came rather abruptly.
"I'm here to rap to the beat in a rapping way." KEEE-RYEST that was funny. Way to go, John Oliver.

They have been planting Jeff/Annie for the last few episodes, I cant point to anything super specific (only watched the last few once) but there were definitely a few instances where I realised they were going to hook up.
I thought the ending was very weird. The theme of that episode was almost explicitly shark-jumping -- paying off all the sexual tension, moving Abed in with Troy, changing the cast with Annie moving away -- so I was waiting for some rug-pull that would explain why none of it ever happened and let us in on the joke. Troy and Abed even had a conversation about "jumping the shark."
So when Jeff and Annie starting making out, I was half-expecting Britta and Slater to come hop into a 4-way, then Jeff would wake up in Spanish class or something. Since dream sequences are another thing shows do when they are out of ideas. And then we would all laugh.
But honestly, I have no idea what to think of that ending.
This isn't the kind of show that does "tonight, on a very special episode...." It's the kind of show that makes fun of "tonight, on a very special episode..."

I have never been so jealous of a fictional character as I am of Jeff Winger.
"Big boobs, medium boobs and black boobs."
"Am I black boobs?"
What was the best concert you've been to?
"Probably Sade. It was just so sexy and relaxing."
Hilarious finale! I actually know people who would think "banana penis" is the funniest thing to do with the banana.
Congratulations to Erik Charles Nielsen for appearing in this episode, the paintball episode and any other appearances I may have missed.

It's funny that they mentioned Happy Days, because when the show started it was supposed to be about Richie Cunningham, but Fonzie was so well liked, his role grew until it took over the show. And that's what I thought with Jeff and Annie kiss after the debate, that maybe they wanted the show to be about Britta and Jeff, but Annie -- and Alison Brie -- are too good to leave on the sidelines.
That being said, unlike on Parks & Rec, I think the age gap is troubling.
Age gap smage smgap... age differences are only gross if one of the people are unattractive.
Thats a fact, there's no proof behind it, but it is a fact!
Also loved the Lost reference by Chang!

Plus I'm a sucker for jokes where the character points out how absurd the plot is.
"What kind of community college has a prom?"
somebody start a Community gif blog like this one: http://parksandrecgifs.tumblr.com/
I would like to start a campaign to get Donald Glover some sort of award based exclusively on his performance in this episode. Every line he had was pure gold. Especially him talking to Jeff while Jeff was making his decision.

I ended up really loving this episode, but I'll tell you, I started off very skeptical after that "Take a picture it will last longer" (Guy takes picture with his cell phone) joke at the beginning.
I mean, I'll come right out and say it...
I GROANED. (and not in the involuntary way where I enjoyed the joke, this was definite knowing disapproval)
