'Community': Are these season 3 pictures from a dream sequence or the craziest episode ever?

I can’t fathom how the following two promo pictures from Community‘s season premiere are connected. I’m going to go with dream sequence, but with this show, you never know.

At first glance, this photo of Joel McHale from the season premiere of Community seemed mildly inappropriate. (Or am I the only one with a filthy mind?) But upon closer inspection, the only implication being made by this interestingly positioned ax appears to be that Jeff is about to use it on someone. (Look at those crazy eyes!)

Meanwhile, Shirley, dressed in the shiniest ensemble I’ve seen since my evening on the Vegas strip, descending a randomly placed staircase in the middle of the study room. Check it out below:

Yes, has to be a dream. Right? We’ll find out Sept. 22.

Tell me, readers. Based on these pics, will the season be streets ahead?

    That crazy look and the axe reminds me of the movie, “The Shining”.

  • Matt

    “ascending down”? That is tricky to do.

    • dusty

      hahaha…stupid writers.

    • Bobby’s Robot

      LOL! Maybe in an M.C. Escher painting?

    • Mocha

      Or maybe she’s slowly walking up a down escalator? Hahah

    Community can pretty much do no wrong…must get a new catchphrase as streets ahead is getting old. Love the promo with John Goodman. Only 3 more weeks..I have missed Donald Glover all summer.

    • Ross

      If you missed him that much, then you have to familiarize yourself with Derrick Comedy. Specifically “Bro Rape,” “Do You Like Hip-Hop,” “Jerry,” and “Girls are Not to Be Trusted.” Ok, just check out all of them. And their movie, “Mystery Team.” Thank me later.

    My only hope is that Jeff is extermely jealous of Annie putting the chapstick on Abed in another promo pic that they released… and then he goes into a jealous rage, gets knocked out, and dreams about the whole school singing and dancing. But I’m sure that whatever they have cooked up is better. Can’t wait!

      I share your extremely wishful thinking, I to this day keep rewinding the jeff/annie kissing scene from tje season 1 finale they are hot together.

    “I forgot everything you said before rectum!”

    Me too, Dean. Me too.

      O my god, this is golden.

  • ree

    Very excited for Community to return!

  • JMJ

    So excited for the new season! I’m going through some pretty serious Troy and Abed withdrawl…

  • He Geek She Geek

    Looks like a Glee parody…I hope I hope I hope. Someone needs to take Glee down a few pegs (if their own movie didn’t do it already)

    This may be the first time we’ve really seen Shirley w/out a giant purse covering her torso. I really like this look on her; Y.N.B missed her calling as a disco queen.

  • jane

    believe me or not! me and my sister just got two i-pads for $ 42. 77 each and a $ 50 amazon card for $ 9. the stores want to keep this a secret and they dont tell you. go here CoolC ent. c om

  • Monty

    The ax bit reminded me of Frailty, but the shining is the more known reference. Though, i would like to see Jeff believing that he has been sent a message from god to destroy the Glee club if there is a musical aspect to this episode…

    • Ipecac

      Well, the Glee Club died in a horrific bus crash last year, so i doubt anything he could do would be worse than that.

  • Amy

    Cannot wait! It looks crazy and awesome.

  • Brian

    Really, EW? You can’t add a captcha to keep the spam out?

  • Skye

    I love that the writers at EW need its readers to do their editing for them. Who the hell ascends down? No wonder the mag has become garbage. All of its competent writers left long ago.

  • Lily

    Sooooo excited! I just watched season 1 again to hold me over…I hope there’s another paintball episode in the works!
