The Office Season 7 Recap: Dunder Mifflin Fear Filled Christmas
The Office returned last night with its eleventh episode entitled “Classy Christmas.”
Last night The Office Season 7 returned with its one-hour Christmas special entitled Classy Christmas. In this episode, Dunder Mifflin is preparing for Christmas but things suddenly take a “classy” turn when Michael Scott (Steve Carell) is informed an old acquaintance is returning.
For the entire episode last night, we find The Office catering to Michael’s obsession with former employeed and ex-fling Holly Flax (Amy Ryan). From a one man band to fancy Christmas decorations, topped off with a santa suit the likes of Hugh Hefner would wear, Michael Scott definitely takes Christmas to a whole new level of class.
Meanwhile, Toby (Paul Lieberstein) who is out on administrative leave is getting a lot of attention due to the trial in which he is a juror. People keep asking him about the Scranton Strangler and various different aspects of the case. Toby, who gets released for a break loves the attention from everyone at The Office.
Quite possibly the funniest aspect of last night’s “Classy Christmas” episode was the epic battle between Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Jim (John Krasinski). It all started when Jim came up into The Office and pelted Dwight with a snowball to the face. Seems pretty innocent, right? For Jim it was the beginning of a psychological nightmare.
A Small portion of last night’s episode of The Office Season 7 focused on Darryl (Craig Robinson) and his daughter. He brings her to the Dunder Mifflin Christmas party in an effort to impress her for the holidays.
Before we wind things up here let’s check back in on the whole Michael-Holly situation that has been brewing at The Office. It seems that Holly is still dating her boyfriend and Michael is pissed. He thinks his world is over and pretty much gives up on life. Just before he heads home, Pam (Jenna Fischer) talks some sense into him and lets him in on a little secret. She tells him that Holly wants to be married by the end of the year or she is dumping her boyfriend. For Michael Scott that is the best news he has heard all day.
Last night’s Christmas episode of The Office ends with Michael Scott throwing on his Santa outfit and making Darryl’s daughter have an excellent Christmas. The Dwight-Jim feud ends with Jim walking to his car through a field of angry looking snowman, terrified out of his mind. As the credits roll we are left with a classic quote from Mr. Dwight Schrute which goes like this: “In the end the greatest snowball isn’t a snowball at all. It’s Fear; Merry Christmas.”
