Aside from the end of the episode with Jim and Pam, this episode really didn't do anything for me. Didn't care for the Andy part, or Dwight & Angela, or any of it really. Was really excited when I found out it would be 60 minutes of 1 episode, but was just really flat for me.

Anyways, that episode was good overall like the rest of the season but a little too awkward like British Office. Guess they're trying to move the story line along so less jokes. They ruined the guy trying to copy Michael, could've been funnier.

EDIT: The girl's name I think is Collete Wolfe. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2180792/?ref_=tt_cl_t10

It doesn't show her in any credits yet, she was in Observe & Report, not Paul Blart Mall Cop. I'm probably wrong, meh, just a guest role and I doubt her or Gabe will be back for much.
Observe and Report. That's where it rung a bell. She played Nell.

For me it seems like this show whenever they had an "hour long" episode it was really just a episode to big for 30 mins that they had to supply 25 mins of filler for.

It seemed like NBC pulled 1600 Penn last week, and made this an hour. I read an article on The Office writers that they usually have 42 minutes of scenes that they cut down to 22-23 so I think we just got all of the deleted scenes added to this one.

When Andy brought back the exes, I lost it. Thought it was a pretty good episode.

Stole this from ******.

I'd be okay with this as an ending.

Well we know now that The Office is set to air in May on the show. I think the last scene will be Jim and Pam sitting down on the couch to watch TV and The Office theme song starts up, and we then see the start of episode 1 with Michael Scott. Jim and Pam laugh about how silly Michael is and Pam puts her head on Jim's shoulder and that's when it ends. This way, we end the show with Jim and Pam and Michael. People are happy because we see Michael again, even though it's not anything new. Thoughts?

Toby coming out of the prison on a stretcher, clutching his throat was a bit of comic magic.

Sort of puts an end to my thought that he was the Scranton Stranlger, I suppose

As Michael Scott was leaving for his plane in the Season 7 finale, he told the crew to call him or whatever if they ever aired the footage. Perhaps Michael will actually be in the finale, rather than just showing him in the credits like that ****** post suggests.

If he does come back they're playing it very close to the chest. All reports these days say only Ryan and Kelly are coming back. But I want to believe!

Would you guys be okay with just a phone call of some sorts? They could have him on speaker with everyone in the office or maybe just Jim and Pam. Not sure what it'd be about: maybe announcing the wedding or that Holly's pregnant, etc.

Yeah, maybe in the last episode David Wallace fires Andy (which I think is a given) and announces that Michael Scott is his replacement.

(and maybe Holly returns to take over for Toby, as it is revealed he is the Scranton Strangler....haha)

Here's how I want it to end...

Dwight (new acting manager now that Andy was fired), calls everyone into the conference room, you think it's going to be another ridiculous Dwight meeting. Dwight wheels in the TV, or it's already in the room. Says "we're done working for today, the producers are giving us a sneak peek of the first episode that's going to air next week" (or something along those lines).

Jim and Pam are sitting next to each other, as at some point this season Jim realizes his dream was marrying Pam and being with her, not necessarily living the "sports dream" in Philly. Pam has some sort of outlet from Dunder Mifflin to her artwork.

Plop will take Dwight's seat so he has a view of Erin. Clark takes Pam's old seat.

Ryan and Kelly are there along with the rest of the characters, including Andy who was invited for the screening. You hear the theme song start playing and everyone in the conference room, including Dwight, laughs as the first shot of Michael Scott is shown.

Camera pans to the window that we've seen the characters look out of so frequently during the show we've watched for so long. Zooms in on Michael Scott looking up at the building smiling. Audience can assume that the producers called him now that the show is finally airing. A wedding ring is clearly visible on his hand.

Show ends.

I don't necessarily think so. There are still a lot of ways this can go. I still believe your theory.

Perhaps it is all a play of irony, and that he was actually going to the prison to tell the man that he was actually the strangler thus he knows the man is innocent. In a fit of rage the innocent man strangles the strangler to give him a taste of his own medicine.

Toby probably went to the prison to confess to the innocent man that he is in fact the Scranton Strangler. Awesome.

Edit: I just read the post above mine. haha

I hate predictable endings, but this is how I see Jim and Pam...

Pam gives him a ultimatum, he denies it and she returns to Scranton to work. Jim stays at his business until he finds an old dusty picture of them together. Jim then thinks about his life with a flashback filled episode of the last seven years or so. During the last episode he decides to leave his company in Philly and "surprisingly" returns to Scranton and he gets back together with Pam. Evil Andy's mission gets to David Wallace, he gets demoted back to his original position or he gets a better job closer to Cornell (probably gets Erin back as well) with Jim getting hired as Manager of Scranton. I don't know what happens to Pam, she either stays on her position or she gets a job with something to do with art.

Not saying that will come out, but that is one of the predictable ending I could see happening.
