Yeah, what an idiot, not getting to his connecting flight ninety minutes early.

Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale

Reminds me of when my bus would leave early back when I had to take public transit to work/school every day. That really pissed me off. Watching your bus drive away 5 minutes early as you are trying to make it to the stop is infuriating. Especially when the next one doesn't come for 45 minutes. I can only imagine how pissed I'd be if it was a plane ride to a far away city where I had an important event.

Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale

I feel like they really made us want to root for Dwight, with him acting like Jim's been his best buddy forever. I can see Jim's point of view on this and felt it was in his character to support Wallace's move to make Dwight the Regional Manager, but Dwight doesn't feel like Dwight. Every other time he's been close, he's been ready to clear house and torture everyone else.

I did love the "Assistant-to-the-Regional-Manager" comment by Jim.

Why did they have Andy disappear for months, was it a plot necessity because Ed Helms was filming a movie? If so why didn't they just have Andy have to leave for some sane reason?
Hangover 3 I believe.

That episode kinda sums up the past few years of The Office, some good bits some really weird bits. I can't believe that actually had Andy crap on David Wallace's car. And trying to grope Toby was just weird.

Toby finally snaps, murders Michael and the show ends with his arrest and conviction.

Too dark?

I still think it will end with him being the Scranton Strangler.

Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale

This show has been off my radar for quite a while. It's sad though because it used to be appointment viewing for me. I'll at least catch the finale; hopefully tomorrow's episode as well.

Prediction: Toby is revealed to be the Scranton strangler and Michael's cameo is a clip of him on a news show saying something along the lines of "I always knew he was evil."

Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale

That was another great episode. I'm really going to miss this show.

I just remembered something. Didn't someone on this thread keep saying that Jim was leaving the show before the end and that's why they were doing this divorce-ish storyline? Where did that come from?

Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale

Here's how I would love the show to end.

Remember that episode with the obscene watermark, and Creed totally set an innocent girl up to be fired?

I want that girl to see that on the show, and then sue the company, forcing them to close the branch.

I like the way Dwight behaved when he finally got the manager position. It makes it seem like he grew over the last nine years. I think when he saw Jim talking to David Wallace, he assumed Jim was about to be offered the job. Then when David immediately called him in, he realized that David was asking Jim if Dwight should be manager and despite their rivalry he told him yes. So in that moment he lightened up and 'Got it'.

Edit: I've been power-watching Parks & Rec to see the early episodes I missed because the pilot sucked, and realizing just how much better a show it is than The Office. Such a well balanced cast, and Mark for Chris & Ben is the best trade in TV history.

I think that was me and I didn't say he was leaving before the end. I said he had only agreed to come back for a limited number of episodes this season. Therefore, they had to find a plot to explain his periodic but ongoing absences.
