It's time for a little pomp and circumstance as Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), "Community's" ego-driven heartthrob, preps for graduation day in tonight's season (possibly series) finale. Also awesome: The study group revisits the "darkest timeline"! As Season 4's showrunners, David Guarascio and Moses Port, told TV Guide, "You won't be sure whom to root for. Darkness can be so... alluring, can't it?"
In this exclusive sneak peek at "Advanced Introduction to Finality," Jeff and the gang are gathered in Dean Pelton's (Jim Rash) office. Pelton is rocking (debatably) a mini-dress version of a grad gown. "Emotions are running high, so I will keep this tight and short," he says. "You always do," replies Jeff.
As Pelton sheds some tears (those emotions he mentioned must have been his) and goes to sign Jeff's diploma with his "John Deancock," Jeff is slightly surprised that that's all there is to it. Looks like he was hoping for little more pomp and circumstance, after all -- which is just what he's about to get. In fact, with Annie (Alison Brie) heading up the party, it's starting to sound more like a wedding than a graduation celebration. Hats off, either way!
The Season 4 finale of "Community" airs Thursday, 5/9 at 8 PM on NBC.
