'The Office' Romance for Michael and Holly Isn't Over After All

Michael Scott on 'The Office'Dunder Mifflin is a strange place for romance. Jim and Pam, of course, have been the cornerstone of the show. But we've also seen the rocky relationship between Ryan and Kelly, a love triangle with Dwight, Angela, and Andy (as well as Dwight's baby plan with Angela), the awkward courtship of Andy and Erin and a few doomed dalliances involving Michael Scott.

Michael Scott has moved on to a new love interest this season (played by Amy Pietz), but according to EW's The Ausiello Files, Holly Flax may not be done. Ausiello quotes 'Office' executive producer and co-star Paul Lieberstein (he plays HR guy Toby) as saying he wants to bring Holly (Amy Ryan) back next year.

It was legitimately sad when Holly had to leave town and end the relationship with Michael. From the start, the couple seemed too perfect. Anything that good in Michael Scott's life is sure to mean trouble for him down the line. In Holly, Michael finally had someone who would indulge in his dim-witted humor. They were sweet together, understood each other, although you would never want to be around this couple in real life.

It would be nice to see Michael / Holly romance rekindled. That might set up next year as one big happy romance for much of the cast, if Andy and Erin work out, and if Dwight and Angela get close again. But then, in a sitcom, one happy ending (for Jim and Pam) might be more than enough.

I would love to see Michael and Holly get back together. However, I pray Dwight sticks with Pam's friend instead of Angela.
