The finale of "The Office" Season 8 saw Andy's (Ed Helms) return to regional manager status after some painful-to-watch but hilarious "fake" grovelling to Nellie (Catherine Tate) for a janitorial position. Things are finally back to normal, or as normal as they can be after Michael's (Steve Carell) departure. In a smart (yet painful) move, the producers have announced that Season 9 will be the show's final season.
Even Sabre is out of the way, as Andy was able to convince Dunder Mifflin's former CFO David Wallace (Andy Buckley) to buy the company. It was Andy's biggest feat, which is why the office gang thought he was hallucinating the whole thing until Wallace came to the office and proved them wrong.
Nellie is sticking around since Andy gave her the "pity job" of special projects manager, which actually gives her free reign over the office. We'll see what other situations she can worm her way into in Season 9.
The only thing that was left in the air at the conclusion of Season 8 was the strange love triangle between Dwight (Rainn Wilson), Angela (Angela Kinsey), and Senator Lipton (Jack Coleman). Dwight stole Angela's baby's diaper to take it in for paternity testing. After Lipton hit on Oscar, it appears Dwight may win the battle for Angela, whether he's the father or not.
The producers indicated that viewers can expect to see a resolution to all of our questions in the final season. We will even learn who was behind the filming of the documentary. Finally!
