Concluding the show’s Fifth Season, “Basic Sandwich” finds the Save Greendale Committee searching the campus for the hidden computer lab of the college’s founder (Chris Elliott) who disappeared in the 1970s (along with an entire wing of the school) while doing research on computer intelligence capable of emotion. Realizing that the circuitry of this creation was made almost entirely out of gold, the group searches frantically for treasure which they could use to stop Subway from buying the campus.

The first-half of Community‘s season finale offers the former Study Group, now the Save Greendale Committee, a problem unlike any they have faced before. After an insurance inspector takes a look over the campus and discovers all the work that’s been done in recent months has actually turned Greendale Community College from a liability nightmare into a potentially profitable real estate, the land is quickly sold out from under the college to Subway.

That was awesome! Unapologetically pulling the nostalgic strings of everyone who grew up watching G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero, and guaranteeing I will buy this season on DVD, the only question anyone needs to ask about G.I. Jeff is: Is it a great episode of Community or the greatest episode of Community?

The Save Greendale Committee face two important tasks (or what passes for important at Greendale Community College) in the latest episode. As Annie (Alison Brie) gets lost in the politics and labyrinthine, back-dealing, behind-the-scenes world of the college while trying to help Buzz Hickey (Jonathan Banks) get a simple bulletin board rehung in the cafeteria, Jeff (Joel McHale), Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), Professor Ian Duncan (John Oliver), and Chang (Ken Jeong) create the theme for the school dance (not initially realizing where Chang got his brilliant ides of “Bear Down for Mid-Terms”).

And then there were five. In a fitting farewell to Donald Glover (who is leaving the show to concentrate on his his stand-up comedy), Abed (Danny Pudi) gets the entire Greendale community to sign-on for a game of Hot Lava where no student or faculty member is allowed to touch the floor until only a single survivor remains. As expected, Greendale devolves into a bizarre dystopian future in only a couple hours as the entire populace becomes obsessed with winning the game (and the $50,000 Abed puts up for a grand prize), and the various members of the Study Group each find their way to say goodbye to their friend and wish him well on his worldwide adventure.

Failed lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), and show’s creator Dan Harmon, return to Greendale in the season opener. Under the lie of attempting to save Greendale from a lawsuit, Jeff is sent in by his former co-worker Alan Connor (Rob Corddry) to find evidence of negligence following the collapse of a bridge designed by a former student. When that falls through, Jeff attempts to prey on the failed dreams of the Study Group to create five new plaintiffs.

Abed (Danny Pudi) takes up the role of documentary filmmaker (again) focusing on the mystery behind Chang’s (Ken Jeong) amnesia. In order to offset the monetary strain of searching for the cause of “Changnesia” the Dean (Jim Rash) enlists the support of the entire Greendale community to help the school procure a $40,000 grant from the MacGuffin Neurological Institute. And so, despite Jeff’s (Joel McHale) objections, the Study Group decides to help their troubled former enemy.

As Britta (Gillian Jacobs) helps Jeff (Joel McHale) spend Thanksgiving with his estranged father (James Brolin) and the half-brother (Adam DeVine) he’s never met, Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) invites the rest of the Study Group to have Thanksgiving dinner with her family. Trapped in a situation that makes their own family dinners look inviting by comparison, Abed (Danny Pudi) narrates his friends’ plan to survive the ideal and escape in a way designed not to hurt Shirley’s feelings.
