An episode that could have been so great, instead turned to average.  The teasing of the obvious took a decent turn.  The conversation between David and Jim about Dwight was a wonderful feeling after so many years.  Dwight’s big moment feels so wonderful to achieve, but then Andy takes a dump on a car.   Thank God they don’t drag the Andy thing out too much.  Oh wait, they did.  Andy took a dump on a car.  Kevin was a little overused, and as for the groping…poor Toby.  Angela hitting rock bottom…really?  At least she knew enough to not fall back into a relationship with Andy.  Wish she could get over Dwight, but it’s nice to see the development with Oscar.  The buyout gives the proper drama to end the show, I just hope it is not predictable or sad.  I am a wuss.
