Jenna talks about the Season 2 finale

There is a little blurb in next week’s TV Guide (page 26) from Jenna Fischer, in response to the question “Were Pam and Jim really ready for that big kiss in the Office finale?”

We discovered the plot when we first read the script aloud at the table reading. When we got to the part when Jim told Pam he was in love with her, I screamed out “What?!” I vacillated between being the actress reading Pam’s words and the viewer reacting to it. John Krasinski [who plays Jim] and I had been arguing vehemently with the writers about whether they should kiss in the final episode. We had been fighting against it, in theory. We thought it was too early. But when we read Steve Carell’s script, it was so perfect. We immediately got on board. I heard they were going to have us kiss, but the confessional completely took me by surprise. I don’t know what’s going to happen next. Pam may come back next season married to Roy. But if Pam was going to do nothing, I don’t know if she would call her mother and say she kissed another guy.
