The Office: Performance Review
This week we see the continuation from last week's episode detailing the hookup between Michael and his boss Jan. Michael is doing performance reviews but he is preoccupied with how to deal with Jan, who through her voicemails, doesn't want to discuss their time together. Michael plays her messages to some of his staff, including Pam, who gets him to believe that Jan is "conflicted," and Stanley, who says that Jan wants him. It is literally the talk of the office.
Michael says he wants "closure" with Jan, but as she arrives, she clearly does not want to discuss their previous encounter and strictly wants to get down to business and do his performance review. Michael tries to impress Jan with the hastily arranged "Suggestion Box meeting," but that doesn't seem to go to well. In his office, Michael tries his best to get Jan to acknowledge their relationship, but Jan walks out and basically blows him off. Michael is chastened, but he still thinks Jan wants him but she has to acknowledge her true feelings for him.
I liked the idea of having a continuation of a storyline, but the subplot of making Dwight think it was Friday when it was really Thursday really didn't go anywhere. Plus, Dwight's behavior was over the top again, and as we've discussed before, it can really be disconcerting.
