  1. I really think it means the documentary crew needs to move on, as suggested by the ending of Customer Loyalty. They’re going to realize that this is their eighth(?) Valentine’s Day in the Office, which is just ridiculous.

  2. Bruce,
    The problem is a lot of the times in the office there is a singular theme that applies to many characters. It could be Erin and Andy…PLUS Jim and Pam related.
    Scary indeed.

  3. Greg Daniels said that somebody gets fired in episode 15, so that’s the previous episode to this. I’m guessing the title refers to whoever that is. It’s too early for any of the cast to leave the show, so unless whoever gets fired gets their job back again, I’m thinking it’s Pam who gets fired because the camera crew would still follow her after she had left Dunder Mifflin. That’s my theory anyway!

  4. Since it would appear that Dwight will be devoting his time on “The Farm” (the episode after this one) and not at Dunder Mifflin, maybe HE gets fired in “Couples Discount”. Supposedly, NBC is not planning to create a spin-off series with Rainn Wilson at Schrute Farms, but that doesn’t mean that Rainn finishes the series at DM either. I haven’t heard or read any rumors of this, but the writers and producers have brought so many unexpected surprises this season, I wouldn’t put it past them.

  5. I don’t think this is the V-Day episode. I think that was meant for Couples Discount before Vandalism moved to the same day as Junior Salesman.

  6. FYI…If you follow John K on twitter, you’ll see a Valentine’s Day picture of Jenna and John that may alleviate some anxiety regarding the JAM storyline.

  7. One more thing… are we 100% certain that the person who gets fired is from DM? Maybe Jim gets asked to leave Athlead by his partners…they don’t seem to be that nice to him.

  8. It could be a misleading title. Or it could be about Darryl moving on if he gets fired from either athlead or Dunder-Mifflin.

  9. Everyone’s freaking out about Andy/Erin and Jim/Pam…but maybe it’s Angela and the Senator…

  10. I’m sorry, am I reading that right? Dwight and Angela are on a mission to “clean” his aunt? Wtf? LOL! I wonder is Andy moving on from Erin or from getting fired? Or is Pam interviewing for the job because she’s been fired? Questions, questions! The guy who interviews Pam must remind her of Michael. I wonder who’ll be playing him?
