The Office Season 7 Recap: Cameo Packed Finale Fails to Deliver

the officeThe Office Season 7 aired its season 7 finale last night and it was a major letdown in my eyes.

Last night was the big night, season 7 of The Office ended and fans were left with a big WTF on their faces. While people keep telling me that the show WILL survive without Michael Scott (Steve Carell), it’s clear that they are mistaken. NBC hyped up this big finale with a ton of celebrity cameo’s and let me tell you, it was a big fat letdown. What exactly went down at the Dunder Mifflin offices last night?

Well, aside from Ray Romano eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich during his interview, Ricky Gervais via webcam and Jim Carrey for about 30 seconds at the end of the show, not a whole lot. Jim (John Krasinski), Gabe (Zach Lewis) and Toby (Paul Lieberstein) were the dream team, looking for possible manager candidates on The Office Season 7. On top of the “guest” interviewees, some of Dunder Mifflin’s own also took a stab at the job.

Andy’s (Ed Helms) interview was a heated one as Gabe clearly expressed his disgust with him. I think he asked Andy “how many windows are in New York City?” like anyone knows that. Darryl’s (Craig Robinson) interview was short lived as they needed a resume from him, which he clearly had never made before. Perhaps the most interesting interview was Dwight’s (Rainn Wilson). After being denied a shot at the job, Dwight dressed up as a foreign burn victim, who is completely wrapped in gauze so you can’t see his face. Jim catches on immediately and in the end, Dwight interviews himself which is quite entertaining.

Aside from the interview process on last night’s The Office Season 7 finale, there are a couple of other things going on. Erin (Ellie Kemper) thinks Phyllis (Phyllis Smith) might be her mother; Angela (Angela Kinsey) prepares to marry, as Oscar (Oscar Nunez) puts it, “gay” senator and Gabe is shipped back to Florida. Oh, Erin tries to win back Andy with a puppet show but fails miserably.

That about wraps up last night’s The Office Season 7 finales. They left it wide open as to make sure us fans return for its eighth season, minus Michael Scott. If I’m being completely honest, the future of The Office does not look good without Steve Carell. I just don’t think anyone can replace the awkwardly funny humor that he brought to the show. We will just have to wait and see! What did you all think of the season finale last night? Did you like it or was it a letdown? Comment below!

  1. Hated it. Utter rubbish.

  2. I’m not sure I agree with you here. While Michael Scott was a funny character, what appeals to me about the office is the many different types of humor that the variety of characters deliver. Michael’s awkward humor was only one of them, and I know many people that didn’t watch the office because they couldn’t handle the awkwardness. I’m a big Creed fan (as many are) and Ryan usually makes me laugh as well. Jim has also been a bit more of his old fun self lately, and I feel that last week’s episode was one of the strongest, funniest episodes that were delivered in the last 4 seasons.

  3. It was ok but since season 3 and 4 finale…. this was a total letdown. Also with the several celebrities appearing couldn´t save this one. The only character that I enjoy was Robert California (James Spader) so smooth, so cool nothing in him worries. Nice one. I hope he become the RM. Until then, season 8!!!!!
