  1. How the heck is Andy even still the manager after David Wallace found out he was gone for 3 months at the end of the last episode? Something tells me Andy will be the one fired by the end of this episode.

  2. “Breakups can be hilarious” – Sorry NBC, but I don’t think my favorite Office couple breaking up is funny!

    I’m glad to see that Andy apparently didn’t get in too much trouble with David Wallace though. And his hair is back to normal. lol

    What is he wearing at the beginning of the clip…?

  3. Andy has always been an unlikable psycho, except for when they elaborated on the basis of his dysfunction for a while, which made him somewhat sympathetic. Erin, however, is a nice girl who has already had to deal with all sorts of dysfunction in her life. She should be rewarded with a relationship with someone stable.

  4. Whoa, that clip is a bit of a spoiler! Andy must have quite a lot of leeway with Wallace after he persuaded him to buy Dunder Mifflin at the end of season 8. Wallace might be reluctant to fire him. There is no legal way Andy could fire Pete for stealing Erin though. He wanted to get rid of Nellie but couldn’t.

  5. I wouldn’t read TOO much into this. As Limey correctly pointed out, he has no more justification for firing Pete than he did for firing Nellie.

    Conversely, however, I’ll be curious how exactly it is that Andy himself WASN’T fired.

  6. Poor Pete! I’ve never thought Andy deserved Erin…Pete is perfect for her! I’d even take Gabe over Andy!

  7. I don’t think Wallace would fire Andy. He’ll discipline him somehow, but he won’t fire him. You guys have to remember that Andy helped Wallace buy DM at the end of last season.

  8. Erin and Pete are officially dating! Yay! Poor Andy though. I don’t care if he’s been a jerk lately, I still love him

    Also, Ben and Leslie get married! Awesome! Great night for comedy all around lol

  9. I hope that the battle over Erin is over now. I want to see Andy being what he was before this season. They have pretty much destroyed his character in my mind. People will say ‘he was always a jerk though!’. Yes, he was always a bit ignorant, bipolar and sometimes mean, but he was never the BAD GUY. He was always the imperfect and at times frustrating member of the protagonist side. In this season, Andy has been made into an adversary that you want to cheer against. He presumably will be able to move on from this, just as he was miraculously able to get over Angela. To me it would be an unforgivable mistake if he exits the show cast as a bad guy after years of us rooting for him.

  10. @13 Mint Chocolate Chip: Hear hear! I really hope Andy gets a good ending. It pains me that he has been cast as the villain this season. He is sad, not bad.

  11. @13, Mint Chocolate Chip: I honestly see Andy going out with yet another anger management/”I know my strengths” joke. Unfortunately. :/

    As an Andy fan I am kind-of sad, but it’s hard to compete with a 15-episode-old plot device.

  12. People who say Andy hasn’t been like this: Traveling Salesmen? I’ve pretty much hated him since. Sure, there are times when I cheer for him, full arcs, even. But I’m not too surprised. I’m sure he’ll get his redemption in the end.

  13. I think it goes down like this: Andy lies his way out of getting fired by Wallace. He then tries to fire Pete, knowing he can’t because he knows Pete will go right to Wallace and show him evidence of his deeds. Andy’s hoping Pete will do what Andy would’ve done in the same situation–run away. However, I think Wallace comes back to Scranton. And when he does, everything comes to the fore: Andy’s behavior toward Nellie, the boat trip; the Florida to get Erin trip, the White Pages account, etc. Once this beast is released, Wallace fires Andy. But also when he hears of Pam’s graffiti art on that warehouse worker’s car and her losing a client by playing a game, she too loses her job. Now onto something OUT THERE. Anyone notice how Kev is starting to show a bit of interest in Angela this season? From the Christmas episode on, it’s been that way. After having defended her from the Senator, Angela, for the first time in several seasons, gave her “I’m liking this” smile where she thinks no one can see it. Very interesting. Ang and Kev. How HUGE of a twist would that be?
