This week on "Community" marked the one-year anniversary of the relationship between Troy and Britta. Only it's too bad neither of them remembered. It was also the three-year anniversary of Troy and Abed watching "Freaky Friday" together for the first time, and that one they remembered. They also recreated the central conceit of the film.
As a coping mechanism for his relationship fears, Troy pretended -- or did he? -- that he and Abed had truly switched bodies. As a good friend, Abed played along -- or was he?
Jeff was with Troy, acting like Abed, where it finally came out that Troy wasn't feeling committed to the relationship anymore. He'd realized that he needed to break up with Britta. Abed, acting like Troy, went on an anniversary lunch date with Britta, proving he's the most committed friend of all time. He started the break-up process for Troy, but Troy stepped up in the last minute to do it himself.
"I wanted it to work, I did. I care about you so much and, I love being around you. I just think I’m better as your friend," he told Britta. "Because, that, I know I can be good at."
TV Fanatic thought this was one of the most well-constructed episodes of the season, while The AV Club was disappointed we didn't get a full season this year to flesh out their relationship. "Instead, we get a Cliff’s Notes version of something that looks like a story, and thanks to some deft acting and some good jokes, it all comes together well enough," they wrote.
There are only two more episodes of "Community" left this season. Catch them Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
