The new season of "The Office" takes its first break with a rerun slated to air on October 20. After the first few episodes, the show is in full swing. But there is one potential angle that I have been curious about. I don't know what the writers are planning, but I think one great twist would be Dwight being the father of Angela's baby. I'm not sure how it all would work, but it would certainly be funny. Stanger things have happened on this show, and I don't really believe that Angela's pregnancy will wind up being normal.
We found out that Angela was pregnant during the season premiere. She said she was married to the senator and all seems fine with her. However, there are several other angles at play here. First, we know all about the history of Angela and Dwight. At first they had a sweet little romance by their standards. But then things went south when Dwight killed Angela's cat. However, in the later seasons we learned that Dwight and Angela devised a legal arrangement to try and have a child. That right there is enough of a reason to create the possibility of Dwight being the father of the child.
To add some intrigue to the problem, we also know that the senator is actually gay. Oscar explained that he knew that when he first met him. That hasn't really been explored much since we first learned it. We knew Angela was in the early stages of dating him but there was a big time jump to get her to the point of marriage. It seems like all of those issues have been resolved, but I doubt they have been.
So could Dwight really be the father of the child? It is possible. Dwight and Angela haven't been together for a while, at least not on the show. But that doesn't mean something didn't happen between the two that we don't know about yet. Also, there was only a jump of a few months between the end of last season and the start of this season. That is a short amount of time for Angela to have gotten married and pregnant. It is entirely possible that she was pregnant before marrying the senator. I think all of this adds up to a surprising episode once she does have the baby. So far, "The Office" hasn't given any indication that Dwight could be the father. But I wouldn't be surprised to see some subtle clues creep up soon.
