The Office Season 7 Recap: Dunder Mifflin Costume Contest

Last night The Office Season 7 returned with its Halloween inspired episode Costume Contest. I had been anticipating this episode as I was curious to see what Michael Scott (Steve Carell) would be dressed up as.

It turns out Scott played the role of Macgruber, an out-there rendition of Macguyver. It was quite funny as Michael toyed with various different super spy references, one including dismantling a bomb.

Almost every single person at Dunder Mifflin came dressed in costume, except Jim (John Krasinski) and the new guy Danny Cordray (Timothy Olyphant). You see, The Office staff were told that if they won they costume contest they would receive a coupon book worth…$15,000! Being completely blinded by the $15k, no one realized that it was all a big scam and the coupon book was only worth about $40.

The costumes were pretty tame except for Dwight’s (Rainn Wilson) whole Scranton Strangler ensemble. Anyone who would dress up as a serial killer who is still loose in the area is pretty twisted.

Meanwhile trouble between Darryl (Craig Robinson) and Michael begins to pop up. When Michael finds out Darryl went over his head for a brilliant idea he had, he gets pissed off. Scott now sees Darryl as a traitor and does not think he should be trusted by anyone.

On a completely different note, the Cordray-Pam (Jenna Fischer) relationship comes up once again. Jim, when pushing on the whole break-up 4 years ago, finds out the truth. Cordray did not call Pam back because he thought she was a nerd!

The Episode of The Office Season 7 last night ends with Jim finally dressing up as Popeye and coming to the “Costume Contest” at The Office. Michael Scott, Gabe and Darryl all have a sit down and come to an agreement for future Corporate dealings.

All in all, it was yet another funny episode of The Office. While it was not the best one of the season, it still did its duty of making me laugh quite a few times.
