Community Hot Shots: Jeff and Pierce... Bond?!

This Thursday’s Community (NBC, 8/7c) will explore something no episode of the cult hit comedy has explored before: a buddy-buddy relationship between Jeff and — gasp! — Pierce.

The following shots from the installment find the oft-at-odds study groupers palling around — but why? We’re not entirely sure, but we can tell you that the episode examines what happens when Dean Pelton uses Jeff, Annie and Britta to help land a “whale” — aka a wealthy potential student — for Greendale. And upon finding out said scheme, Pierce is livid.
