Synopsis


Jo flies up from Florida after the press gets wind of Sabre's faulty printers. She tells the office she'll find out the identity of the whistleblower, and they will be punished. Andy grows nervous at his desk.

Jo's determined to find the whistleblower. She calls in IT to search all the employees' hard drives. Angela complains to Michael - he hasn't sold Andy down the river, yet. Phyllis and Oscar agree. Michael still defends Andy, unable to believe he would do such a thing and put the company at risk.

Jo questions each employee privately in hopes of finding the whistleblower. She meets with Dwight, and they begin talking investments. Jo advises Dwight to buy property if he has money saved up. This advice gets Dwight thinking.

Darryl tells Michael that he leaked the story about the printers to a copy editor he was trying to pick up at a bar. Then Pam confesses to Michael. She might have leaked the story about the printers to someone at Cecelia's daycare. Michael meets with both of them in Meredith's van. Kelly joins the meeting because she leaked the story, too.

Michael tries to convince Jo to be easy on the whistleblower. Jo instantly suspects Michael knows the whistleblower's identity, an accusation Michael denies. Jo orders Michael to get in her car and they drive off to her private jet.

Once in Jo's jet, Michael reveals all the bummers in his life, starting with the closing of his favorite restaurant. He still misses his ex, Holly. Jo sympathizes, sorry for all Michael's bad luck this year.

Nick the IT guy visits to say his goodbyes. When the office ignores his farewell, he starts spilling the secrets he got off their computers. He points the finger at Andy as the official whistleblower, and even reveals the video Andy made about the faulty printers.

Jo opens up to Michael. She's always loved being a role model for young girls, and now she'll be remembered for Sabre's faulty printers. Back at the office, Andy's facing the wrath of all his co-workers, who feel he put their jobs in danger. Andy's day lightens up a bit when Erin tells him she's proud of him for taking a stand.

Dwight tells the security guard that he's about to purchase the building where Dunder Mifflin is located - and he's got a lot of new plans for the building.

Michael offers to help Jo - he'll give the official press conference about the faulty printers. Jo's touched that Michael would go so far to help save her reputation. Meanwhile, Michael thrives on all of the media attention. Later on, Jo offers to return Michael's favor, promising to work on bringing Holly back to Scranton.
