After nine years we say good-bye to Dunder Mifflin in a very emotional episode. The final episode is set one year after the documentary has aired and everyone has come together at the wedding of Dwight and Angela.
During the episode we find out what happened to some of our favorite characters. Oscar is running for Senate, Kevin and Toby have both been fired, Stanley has retired, Creed is wanted by the police, Kelly and Ryan run off into the sunset (leaving behind Ryan ‘s child), Erin finds her birth parents, and Andy is capitalizing off being an unwanted viral sensation.
We’ve watched the budding relationship of Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) from being best friends, to husband and wife, and then to parents. We’ve seen the struggle they went through during this last season, and now we see them getting their happy ending while deciding to move to Austin.
We see the return of Michael Scott (Steve Carell) at the Wedding of Dwight and Angela. He comes back to take Jim’s place as best man for Dwight. He wouldn’t be the fun loving boss we all know and love without delivering his famous line, “that’s what she said.” Later we see Michael watching Jim, Pam, Dwight and Angela and he looks to the camera and says, “It’s like all my children grew up and married each other.”
The end of the episode is the cast reflecting on what Dunder Mifflin meant to them and how they felt about the documentary.
“I’m happy that this was filmed so I can look back and remember everyone and what we did…I worked for a paper company all these years and I never wrote anything down,” -Phyllis on how she feels about the documentary.
Jim describes how working a paper company for the last twelve years was boring at times but this job gave him everything, “This stupid, wonderful, boring, amazing job.”
Thank you for giving us nine amazing years filled with lots of laughter and a few tears.
