After Troy agrees to move into Pierce's mansion at the end of the Season One episode "Pascal's Triangle Revisited" he had no idea the horrors that would await him. Not only was he to discover the dead body of Pierce's mom, he also had to look into the face of terror every night before he went to sleep. It's assumed after the events of the Season Two finale, "For A Few Paintballs More", that Troy's living situation changed again, and he moved out of Pierce's home. When the next semester started, he moved into an apartment with Abed. He tried to forget his time at the mansion, but Pierce had a plan to make him remember: he brought a gift to the duo's housewarming party, The Norwegian troll doll. Its first appearance was in the Season Three episode "Remedial Chaos Theory."
