Tonight is the farewell episode (or the Bon Troyage, if you will) for Donald Glover’s character Troy Barnes on Community. NBC promoted the #BonTroyage hashtag and encouraged fans to use it before, during, and after the episode to celebrate the beloved character as he journeys forth from Greendale.
The overall fan reaction was positive — they found the send-off to be fitting and well done, though many were sad to see Troy go.
Won't lie Troy leaving brought a few tears to my eyes. #Community

.@nbccommunity was perfect tonight. This was the best way to send off Troy.

Great Abed/Troy episode as is fitting for Glover's final #Community episode. But it was also a very good Britta episode. Unexpected!

Troy leaving Community in a boat named Childish Tycoon. No wonder Gambino is so so sad. pic.twitter.com/6znJe8Apha

Well now that there's no more Troy, this means no more watching Community.

Community fans, THAT'S how you send a beloved actor off into a bright future. Well done. I'm proud of y'all. #BonTroyage Troy and Abed
