In the criminal justice system at Greendale, there are two types of people; those who cause trouble and those who try to bring the troublemakers to justice. This is a story of the latter.
The crime scene is Greendale’s biology lab, where a yam (alias Sweet Potato) had been brutally dropped on the floor and stepped on. The case was time-sensitive, as the Greendale study group charged with solving the crime had to prove someone sabotaged their biology project by class on the following day.
The case was a tough one, possibly the toughest of their careers. But with special investigators Troy Barnes and Abed Nadir beating the pavement for hard evidence and district attorney Jeff Winger fighting for the chance to plead the case to the biology class, it should have been an open and shut case. Instead, Sargent Annie Edison and her team uncovered a plot to take down the yams of an entire biology class in the Case of the Smashed Yam.
With that in mind, five things I learned on last night’s episode, “Basic Lupine Urology” are:
1) Starburns is dead. Or maybe he’s not, we’ll have to wait until next episode. But for now, let’s remember him as he was, a conscientious young student who worked hard in school, had a minor kleptomania problem, and whose life was tragically cut short by a freak meth-lab explosion in the trunk of his car. Who’s to say it couldn’t happen to any one of us?
2) Apparently the United States army takes time out of its busy schedule to defend its former soldiers in front of their community college biology classes in cases where yams and honour are involved. I can’t be sure the army defends solely in cases with yams, but I’ve yet to see an instance without one. Read more…
