The Office First Look: Will Michael's Marriage Proposal to Holly Go Up In Smoke?

After seven seasons and 653 awkward situations, Steve Carell makes an explosive exit as Michael Scott this week on The Office (Thursday, 9/8c).

At least that’s what almost happened.

The reality is, Carell’s swan song is still a few weeks out. But were it not for the quick-thinking of a certain veteran Dunder Mifflin-ite, Michael would’ve gone out in a blaze of utter humiliation in tonight’s episode, which revolves around the hopeless romantic’s efforts to come up with the perfect marriage proposal for Holly.

Press play and see for yourself.
