The Office Episode Recap: "The Cover-Up" Season 6, Episode 22

This week, love is in the air, or is it? We saw Michael finally obtain the girl of his dreams last week, and it may seem too good to be true. Will the boss seal the deal, or will this hottie be another office disappointment?

The episode opens with a typical Jim and Pam prank, Morris Code. In order to talk secretly, and annoy Dwight, the couple invents a secret code full of pen clicking and tapping. It works, Dwight apologizes for the annoying things he has done, accuses them of clicking a detonator, and finally is forced to wear a pair of headphones to block the annoyance. Score one for Jim and Pam.

Things are going well between Michael and Donna. She even has somewhat of a "Pilates butt." The boss is giving lectures to his workers with glee, proclaiming "the weekend is always better when you have someone, like I do." He even asks for suggestions about what they should do this weekend "other than having sex." Last weekend, they went to the Poconos to a "little Chinese bistro called P.F. Changs," and, in turn, got "screwed." (TMI is right, Michael. TMI.) Pam and the gang think Donna may be cheating, and Michael doesn't know whether to believe that or not. All of the clues are there, and the woman of his dreams may be "full of lies and deceit."

In order to find out the truth, Michael asks Dwight for a good P.I. reference. Of course, Dwight takes the job on. Meanwhile, Andy gets a call from a client saying that their new Sabre printer caught on fire. He goes to the HR rep to ask for advice, and he seems to not care, avoiding the problem. Darryl is in the room, and tells Andy that the rep may be hiding something. Turns out, the newly promoted employee is playing a trick on Andy in order to get back at him for something in the past. Let's see how this plays out (I bet Andy cries, just saying).

Dwight finds Donna at the gym, and in order to find out whether she is cheating, he plans on "seducing her, bringing her to orgasm, and calling to tell Michael the unfortunate news." Michael is still depressed, and is eating a bowl of mayonnaise and black olives instead of ice cream. Jim and Pam try to talk him out of this rut, and advise him to call off the Dwight P.I. investigation before things get ugly. This warning happens to come too late, as the man is already hounding Donna by working out next to her, moaning and all.

Dwight reports to Michael that Donna is not cheating, and also says that she is heading to the office in order to confront her new boyfriend. Michael hides behind Erin's desk in order to look busy, but it doesn't work. The bartender is furious, but is somewhat flattered my Michael saying, "You work at an adult arcade, and you can get any guy you want. I just like you a lot." She assures her new man that the relationship is exclusive, and invites him to a weekend at the beach. Oh no, Michael. Don't do it, even if she is "boneriffic."

Even though Darryl's plan to mess with Andy is quite "loose," he is hitting a home run. He notifies the salesman that the HR rep wants to eliminate him from the company, and Andy is in complete panic. Meanwhile, after identifying that Donna is wearing a heart-shaped necklace, Pam knows that another man gave her this, and it definitely was not Michael. While doing research to sniff out the truth, Pam comes across Donna's Facebook, in which pictures of her kissing another man are posted. Donna, you've been caught red handed. In turn, Pam brings the photos to her boss, and he is devastated. Poor, Michael. You don't deserve this.

As Andy enters Darryl's office, a fake-firing session is taking place, and Andy is on the verge of tears (just as I predicted it). Even though the HR rep commends Andy for bringing the faulty printer to the company's attention, Darryl continues to torture his colleague with clues of a possible ousting. Outside, Michael is pacing back in forth, developing violent feelings towards the man kissing Donna, who happens to be "a notch above Toby." He takes a walk to the car with his mysterious girlfriend, and they can't seem to find a time to meet back up. He accuses her of cheating, and she admits to it.

In the end, Darryl continues the torture by filming Andy as he acts out a Sabre safety video in a high voice, and the printer used ends up blowing a fuse. He in turn calls off the prank, and learns his lesson. Plus, Michael realizes that he is the other guy in Donna's life, the "mistress," because she is married.

So, what have we learned today folks? Donna is just a two-timing, married, bartender, Pam is a better P.I. than Dwight (obviously), and the new HR rep basically makes a living giving Dunkin' Doughnuts coupons to worthy employees. Sign me up, Toby, because I want a tall iced coffee this minute! I've been up late writing this recap and a have an early morning workout with Dwight. We are working on my biceps.
