  • Internal Reveal: Jim finally shows Pam the card that he had wrote for her but never gave in "Christmas Party". Literally an internal reveal in this case, because we still don't find out what it says.

  • The Reveal: Phillip truly is Dwight's son.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Everyone admonishes Darryl for having left without saying goodbye.
