I thought for sure they would give Karen the job so Jim and Pam could hit it off again.

Other than that, I thought it was an uneventful episode - I thought for sure the show would leave us wondering who would get the job - you know, to keep the viewers interested in the new season.

It felt like a series finale vs. a season finale.

There's a reason why he dumped Kelly.

Really?

I wonder if that's because it was an hour long.  I thought a lot of stuff happened in this episode.  Jan flipping out and getting canned (and I mean that in every possible sense), Jan and Michael getting back together (and apparently moving in together), Jim apparently dumping Karen and asking Pam out on a date (although I think there's more to the Jim/Karen thing that we'll learn more about next season, just like they did with Jim/Pam in the beginning of this season), and Ryan getting promoted to corporate and dumping Kelly.  That's a lot of stuff going on--it'd be way too much to pack into a standard episode--maybe even a "super-sized" episode.

Really. 

I thought it was uneventful.  Nothing happened that shocked me.  Again, they should have set the ending up as a cliffhanger - who's going to move to corporate?  Will it be Jim?  If so, how will he keep his relationships with Karen and Pam?  Will it be Karen?  Again, same question.

In regards to what actually happened:

Jim and Pam - we all saw that coming - the Beach episode set that up. 

The whole Jan thing doesn't really bother me - she's a disposable character, I never cared what happened to her - there's no emotional connection with her character.  Don't get me wrong, I liked her in the beginning but then she turned into a nympho and the whole situation ballooned out of control and made no sense. 

Why is she unstable and why should I care?

Ryan being promoted - aside from ruining the whole "wait til next season" idea, I again, don't really care that he's (most likely) gone from the show.  Again, he and Kelly are disposable.  They don't make the show like the other characters.

Yeah, but they did the whole cliffhanger thing last year--and waiting for September sucked.  I'm glad they did something different this time.

Right, but there's still some things that need to be resolved.  Like, what happened to Karen?  Will she be back in Scranton?  Is she staying in New York?  Did she and Jim break-up?  Just 'cause Jim asked Pam out on a date doesn't mean Karen's out of the picture.  They left that intentionally ambiguous, which is kind of a mini-cliffhanger itself.

By herself, Jan isn't a particularly compelling character, but she gives Michael something to do ( ) and their dynamic is somewhat interesting and has now gone a whole new direction.  That's why you should care.

Ryan may be gone from Scranton, but he's not gone from the show, not by a long shot.  He just took Jan's old job, that's all.  He'll be around just like Jan was--and now he's Michael's boss, which sets up some funny stuff for next year.  And B.J. Novak writes and produces for the show, so he'll be around.

I'll give you the point about Ryan - that has the potential to be funny - the relationship between the 'intern turned boss' and Michael has a lot of possibilities.

Nice pun with the 'canned' thing too.

Smartass.

I just don't like Stanley too much, but obviously not because he's black.  Seriously.  I just don't like him because he's a negative turd, and a little too much like a bunch of negative turds I've actually worked with.

How can you not love Stanley after this exchange:

Dwight:  Now, let us discuss precipitation.  Stanley, when rainfall occurs, does it usually fall in a liquid, solid, or gaseous state?

Stanley:  Liq-uid.

Dwight:  Very good  You've earned one Schrute Buck. 

Stanley:  I don't want it.

Dwight:  Then you have been deducted fifty Schrute Bucks.

Stanley:  Make it a hundred.

Dwight:  Wh. . .  don't you wanna earn Schrute Bucks?

Stanley:  No.  In fact, I'll give you a billion Stanley Nickels if you never talk to me again.

Dwight:  What's the ratio of Stanley Nickels to Schrute Bucks?

Stanley:  Same as the ratio of unicorns to leprechauns.

Probably a stuffed push-up bra.
