Season 6, Episode 8, “Koi Pond,” is not in any respect about Halloween. The truth is, should you had been to look at the episode on streaming companies now, you possible would not discover any traces of costumes, trick-or-treating, witches, vampires, or the pleasantly cursed vacation. That is as a result of the Halloween facet of this episode was removed from the cold open.
Within the omitted scene, Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson) brings kids by way of a haunted model of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Firm warehouse and the staff try to scare the youngsters. Okay, issues are going fairly nicely for an “Workplace” Halloween episode. This all appears nicely and good. However then the climax, that includes Michael Scott (Steve Carell), occurs. Within the distasteful climax, Michael pretends to kill himself, which is not precisely appropriate for a kid-friendly haunted home. Darryl even questions Michael’s resolution.
One silver lining of this chilly open, although, is Jim Halpert’s (John Krasinski) costume. He is written “BOOK” on his face. It is a low-effort nod to “Fb,” however Darryl misreads his costume as “book-face.” Basic. One other completely splendid second? Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton) attire up as a vampire and briefly (and concerningly) mentions promoting blood. Nonetheless, for all these comedic moments, the climax of the chilly open is fairly insensitive, and it is most likely for the most effective that this doubtlessly dangerous scene would not air or stream with the episode anymore.
