Recap Of Steve Carrell’s Final Appearance As Michael Scott
Last night, Steve Carrell made his final appearance on The Office as Michael Scott. It was such a thoughtful, funny, and truly some of the best heartbreaking 50 minutes of television! I know I got really sad watching it.
For those of you who have yet to see it, A) GO OUT AND WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY, and B) WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
Here’s out spoilers from Perez Hilton:
“The majority of the episode focused on Michael Scott’s last day at Dunder Mifflin. Unbeknownst to the staff, he had scheduled his flight to Boulder to be with his fiance, Holly Flax a day earlier than anyone knew, as to avoid the difficulty of saying good-bye to his employees.
Of course, it was an easier feat said than done and by the end of the day, Jim had figured out what was going on, which ultimately led to a heartwrenching moment between the two men as they said good-bye and let each other know how appreciative they were of their time together.
The episode wrapped with Michael at the airport, having parted with everyone but Pam (who had been out of the office for the majority of the day, assuming that she would be able to say good-bye to him later) and finally, in respect to the ‘mockumentary’ style of the show, removing his mic pack and asking the ‘camera crew’ to let him know “if this thing ever actually airs.”
As he walks away, Pam manages to get through security and, without even getting her shoes on, and they both have the opportunity to say good-bye to each other.”
