The Office finale predictions

The Office posts have been noticeably absent from this blog, mainly because I haven't been that impressed with season three (I've found many episodes a bit formulaic, and what's with going on multi-month stretches without new episodes??).

That being said, last week's episode was pretty good and clearly set the stage for the season finale this week. First, some background. Then some predictions.

Michael got called by the CFO to come interview for a job.

Jim and Karen are also interviewing for the same job.

Here's what I think is going to happen:

Michael isn't really being considered for the job, but was invited to interview to keep up appearances. Before he gets too far into the interview, he'll down the position out of a sense of honor and loyalty to the Scranton Branch (despite the fact it was never going to be offered to him in the first place).

Jim will really be offered the job. He won't take it though, because he wants to see what will happen with Pam.

Karen, by default, will get the job. Jim, being the good guy he is, won't tell her he was offered it first. Ta-da. Karen is out of the picture, we're even more endeared toward Jim and we get to wait until next season to find out what happens with him and Pam.

Maybe it won't be that simple. They sure shocked everyone at the end of season two, although I can't imagine what they could do that would leave us hanging that much.

What are your predictions?
