I agree with the need for the return of Mandy. Storyline wise, she was briefing Bartlett for his town hall forum on the night of the shooting and was never mentioned/shown again. At least they could have killed her off. Why wouldn't I be shocked if they had Rob Lowe try to take the ballot spot for a dead candidate yet again.

I was really, really skeptical about this working, but I loved it. It was really great seeing David Brent again. I entirely agree with you. I really wish I hadn't known about it ahead of time. I saw it on CNN, so it wasn't John's fault.
