loved this episode. Blood everywhere. But any other ones that have to do with the Holly/AJ ultimatum make sense, too! Not the best episode, that’s for sure. AJ does propose to Holly, but by then she’s fallen back in love with Michael (or realized she never fell OUT of love with him), so she says no to him even though he met the terms of her Ultimatum? I honestly didn’t even think about Jim being gone. It’s always been in character for Michael to do stuff like that, but I actually didn’t like the apology scene. Steve Carell is not signing for an eighth season so “The Ultimatum” is between him and corporate and it lays out the plot for Michael to be replaced and leave the show. Couldn’t they have just had Pam throw in some small reason as to why Jim was missing? It must have been because he was in the cold open.

The show can survive without him because the cast is so amazingly talented, however it won’t be the same without him. Creed: I want to do a cartwheel. Andy/Erin/Gabe? That was just meh. Let’s suppose AJ does ask her…. And I found it especially hilarious when Andy was skating alone and requested The Dave Matthews Band, since I have a teacher who looks just like Ed Helms, and loves The Dave Matthews Band. Pam gets the office to share their resolutions. why couldn’t the camera follow dwight into the strip club?!? It doesn’t say on IMDB. Overall, a middle-of-the-road episode. I missed Jim!
