Season seven of The Office has thus far established three major storylines. The first one involves the inevitable reunion of Michael and Holly. The second one is Dwight having purchased the building. The third storyline, involves Pam's promotion to office administrator. In China, Pam's new position crossed with Dwight's ownership and management of the building.
There was something awfully strange about Michael getting greeted at the hotel. He got to go into an area that was for upper management and the board members only, to a room that had two security guards standing outside the door. As Michael and the upper echelon were going on the stage, they too were also mysteriously escorted by security.
