The Office: Will Michael and Holly Not Get Their Happily Ever After?

Well, this is a little unsettling. Amy Ryan says that Michael Scott’s soulmate, the lovable Holly Flax, isn’t even in Steve Carell’s final episode of The Office.

“I will say that I left the show before he did,” Ryan revealed to Access Hollywood when asked if the two will ride off into the sunset together — you know, like we were all hoping to see. “He’s actually filming his last episode right now. I [finished] a few weeks ago.”

What does this mean for Michael and Holly’s much-deserved happily ever after?

It’s highly unlikely that the absence means doom-and-gloom for the lovebirds. In fact, sources close to The Office tell us that Carell didn’t want a cookie-cutter happy ending for his character, which may explain why Holly if MIA from his final episode. But that’s not to say there won’t be some memorable moments between the two in his penultimate episode.

What else do we hope to see before Carell’s big-slash-sad send-off? For one, Toby (played by Paul Lieberstein) just has to come back to Dunder Mifflin for his nemesis’ last hurrah. And that would mean the Scranton Strangler case must have been solved and Holly is no longer needed as the branch’s temporary HR rep… right?
