I thought I had read somewhere that the shot of Jim & Pam's wedding (with Michael Scott in attendance) during the video Jim commissioned from the doc crew for Pam in last week's episode was in fact a reshoot done during the finale, but I have zero confirmation on that.
Initially, it was said that Carell would not return, opting to let his initial goodbye to The Office stand. Since then, we have had some rather cagey answers from other cast members regarding the will he/won't he return. Most recent was Mindy Kaling - who will be back - talking (or joking) on Letterman about the non-disclosure agreement she signed regarding the finale (and Steve Carell). It may be that Carell changed his mind after initially saying no, or it has all been a publicity ploy of sorts and Carell's return was in fact inevitable.....or not.
My guess is that Michael may show for Dwight & Angela's wedding. And Carell looks to certainly be taking part in the retrospective special they seem to have on tap for Thursday.Edited by jwebb1970 - 5/13/13 at 10:13am
