The Target

Series 9 - Episode 8 The Target



Angela knows that Oscar is having an affair with The Senator, but he doesn’t know that she knows, and thinks he’s got away with it. She’s actually plotting her revenge, and enlists Dwight to help her. He offers Angela the services of his pal Trevor, but isn’t quite prepared for the depth of her fury – she wants the homewrecker killed.

He manages to talk her down to a mere kneecapping, but when he finds out that Oscar is the other woman – or, as he puts it, that Oscar and The Senator “are gaying each other” – he attempts to save his colleague from the lethal killing machine that is Trevor.

Watch until the very end of the episode for a reminder of how great Angela and Dwight can be together when they question Toby about the specifics of gay relationships. Somehow Rainn Wilson and Angela Kinsey remain impeccably stony-faced. 


Angela asks Dwight for help when she learns that her husband is having an affair with Oscar. Meanwhile, Stanley and Phyllis take advantage of Jim when he needs a favour, and Pete distracts Pam as she begins painting her mural.
