The Office Photos Give Us Clues For The Series Finale

The Office Jim and Pam

May is finally upon us, and we're just a couple of weeks The Office will close its doors for good. The series finale is scheduled for May 16, and while NBC has yet to post an official episode description to clue us in on the plot of the series closer, we do have some photos from the last episode. They don't actually spoil much, but all the same, proceed with caution.

Based on the above picture, it looks like there's an event in the works. The premiere of the documentary, perhaps? Jim and Pam appear to be at some kind of formal shindig, and that looks like Andy in the background at another table.

In this one, we have the staff outside doing what looks like karate in the parking lot.

Of the group of them, Meredith's the only one dressed to be there, and she has a mat. But Dwight may be leading this group. He's up front, and we know he's a student of Karate

Further supporting the theory that Dwight's doing some kind of karate lesson in the parking lot is this Thursday night's episode, which will involve a return to the subject of Dwight's appreciation for martial arts.

In this one, we have Jim on a bike.

It kind of reminds me of Season 3 when he was working in Connecticut. He tried to ride his bike to work because Josh did, but he ended up all sweaty.

With the pictures released, hopefully NBC will give us an episode description soon enough. In the meantime, here's the description for this Thursday's episode, titled "Livin the Dream."

ANDY DECIDES TO PURSUE HIS DREAM—Andy (Ed Helms) tries to work up the nerve to quit his job and pursue his dreams of stardom. Dwight (Rainn Wilson) finally receives his karate black belt from his new sensei (Michael Imperioli) and has his best day ever at work. Jim (John Krasinski) returns to Scranton to spend more quality time with Pam (Jenna Fischer).

Michael Imperioli guest stars! See the Sopranos star all gi'ed up at Dunder Mifflin in the photo below…
