OMG, I felt something sad was going to happen in this episode.
You know when they interview the characters individually and there's usually a window behind them... this time you could see that it was a miserable rainy day outside! Then there was that new VP (i.e. the new boss), he was just behaving like a brick wall throughout the episode. He wasn't at all keen on the branch's work "culture"... and poor Jim got caught in that vortex too.
Let's see what's in store next time... maybe the end of The Office is close :(
