Community offered a bottle episode this week – an installment 100% (the closing tag aside) set in the study room. But like Season 2’s “Cooperative Calligraphy”, this was hardly a one-off story with no consequence. Rather, it was about saying goodbye to one character and setting the stage for yet another to leave the series.

Being almost entirely dialogue-based, “Cooperative Polygraphy” had to deliver on that front and did so in a huge way. The idea that Pierce was, one last time, prodding the group like only he could – from beyond the grave! – was great and the cast rose to the occasion. Yvette Nicole Brown had some hysterical delivery in this episode, from screaming, “We all know that, you judgmental bitch!” to her very specific, matter-of-fact “…Yes” reply when “Pierce” asked if she knew he admired and was intimidated by her.
