Interesting, since he was one of my least favourites in the D&D show.
That is absolutely ingenious and would be a much better ending indeed.I just saw the 14th episode of season 2 which is the D&D episode. I have never seen any COMMUNITY before, but what I found hysterical was Chevy Chase's endless malice towards Fat Neil. He was ****ing hysterical.
Anyhow, while I laughed throughout the episode, I felt the ending sucked. Everything was fine and they set up a much better ending, but didn't do it. Here's my take on the ending. Bear in mind, that everything up to this point is precisely the same:
Fat Neil: "I take the sword of Ducayne, and I throw it at the amulet around the sad old man's neck."
Dungeon Master: "It's a very difficult shot. You'll need an 18 or higher."
Everyone prays as the Dungeon Master rolls the dice. He rolls. His face sinks.
Jeff: "He missed?!"
Dungeon Master: "Technically, no."
The players rejoice, but Pierce interjects.
Dungeon Master: "... Rolled a '1'. He doesn't miss, he... drops the sword and impales his foot."
Jaws drop. Pierce smirks. Jeff stares daggers.
Dungeon Master: "I have to roll for damage." (he rolls) "That's... ah... critical hit. He dies from shock and blood loss."
Jeff: "So... Neil. Just. KILLED HIMSELF."
Dungeon Master nods.
Pierce: "I kill everybody."
Dungeon Master: "Everyone is dead."
Pierce reclines, satisfied. Neil cries. Jeff is livid.
CUT TO BLACK.
Over end credits. Neil is in his room, he is writing a note. Once finished, he picks up a razor blade. Brings it up to his hand... and then picks up a cellophane-sealed D&D player's handbook. Using the blade, he delicately cuts the wrapping and opens the book. He continues writing determinedly, but it turns out it's not a note, but a character sheet... for Ducayne the Second...
The season finale will be on May 12th.There's no such thing as a free Caesar salad.
Hilarious episode last night, as usual. Was that the season finale?
Agreed on both accounts.Last night kinda redeemed the string of blah episodes recently.
Monkeys make everything better.
