Also, Evil Abed is back and a wedge has been formed between Troy and Abed. Is the darkest timeline starting to strike back? Just WTF happening?
Abed's projecting is negative feelings towards Troy onto his imagined evil alternate self, that's all. This is the same guy who lets his imagination run away with him all the time, after all. There's a reason that scene happened in the Dreamatorium.

Now, this year the exploration of alt timelines was a fun plot device - but now these are crossing In-universe?
I really think you're confusing Abed's tendency to let his imagination run away with him with an actual inter-dimensional crossover. Remember, this is the same guy who hallucinated the entire Season Two Christmas episode as claymation.

Getting a celeb impersonator pimp to break your legs? Brainwashed by glee?
I don't see how these are any different than most of the crazy stuff they did in the first two season -- I mean, a secret military bioweapon that turns everyone into zombies? Claymation Christmas? A school that keeps holding giant free-for-all paintball contests that ruin the campus? A campus mafia evolving over chicken fingers? Etc.

Let's face it, the Realism/Naturalism boat sailed on Community ages ago.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Sci's take on Evil Abed is actually quite interesting...is Abed just imagining this? Also note all of this has been happening without Ian Duncan who also counselled the group at various times. I think by the time season three ends we'll going to have to go back and do a re-watch to see if we've seen things we've missed. I agree this season has been lackluster so far compared to the previous two, but there is an obvious story arc being carried through this season.

Almost certainly. I mean, he suddenly starts seeing the same Evil Abed he imagined might exist while he's in the Dreamatorium? And Evil Abed just happens to have access to incredibly advanced technology from out of nowhere? And this after he hallucinated everyone as claymation? And Evil Abed just happens to be encouraging Abed's irrational resentment that someone else might dare try to make him not behave irresponsibly?

Let's face it, Abed doesn't quite live in the "real" world the rest of these characters live in.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

We also know from the Christmas episode that Abed internalizes his own personal problems that he is going through...perhaps he is going through something the others haven't detected yet, everyone has been through their own little problems in a way.

I forgot to mention I loved Jeff's hulking out ego spaz attack, and his kiss of Shirley was hilarious!

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Evil Abed appeared on an imagined starship in the Dreamatorium. I think that's enough to support Sci's statement that he's just a figment of Abed's imagination.

So I thought tonight's episode was fantastic. Even if the ending broke my heart a little.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

We say that Abed is imagining in his imaginarium.

But what he's really doing is meditating.

If he is becoming one with t he universe how much harder does he have to mediate before he becomes one with all the universes?

or at least all the universes where that indigenous Abed is meditating as well as he is.

Did you see Jack meditating in 30 Rock yesterday.

Hilarious.

Think less of me.

Oh you can't think less of me?

My bad.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Odds are that every single alternate timeline we saw in "Remedial Chaos Theory" were just figments of Abed's imagination and what HE thought would happen if the chosen person left to get the pizza. It was his mind thinking of "What would our lives be like without this person" in general rather than the specific moment of getting pizza.

So the "Evil Timeline" is just another figment of his imagination (which is why HE felt something odd when "Evil Abed" was born) and continues to exist in his subconscious.

The "Evil" timeline was caused by Troy leaving the group (Troy's influence on their lives being removed), and so when there's a wedge going between Abed and Troy Abed begins to hallucinate Evil Abed.
