Because the show was on for so long, and because its fans are so passionate, a few fan theories have come up over the years about the universe of the show and its characters. Some are wilder than others.

Here are three of the craziest theories

The Office was on the air for nine seasons, the last of which came out in 2013. Even today, seven years since it wrapped, it’s still a regularly watched and discussed show among the series’ loyal fan base.

Because the show was on for so long, and because its fans are so passionate, a few fan theories have come up over the years about the universe of the show and its characters. Some are wilder than others.

Here are three of the craziest theories The Office fans have come up with.

The Scranton branch was affected by radon poisoning

Radon poisoning comes up a few times in The Office. Toby mentions it on several accounts.

“We should really have the office’s air quality tested. We have radon coming from below, we have asbestos in the ceilings, these are silent killers,” he says in one episode.

“You are the silent killer,” responds Michael.

In addition to causing coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath, one Reddit user says that radon can alter one’s behavior. Some characters undergo drastic personality changes over time. Kevin gets slower and Dwight gets more delusional, for example. This would also explain why the Dunder Mifflin employees at other branches are so much more… normal than the employees at the Scranton branch.

Jim Halpert is a sociopath

Another Reddit user claims that Jim Halpert is a sociopath. They start out by giving the definition of a sociopath: “Someone who is ‘anti-social’ in terms of ‘not conforming to social norms.’ They use ‘deceitfulness, using lies, cons, and etc for personal gain or pleasure.’ They have ‘reckless disregard for others.’ They have ‘impulsivity,’ ‘aggressiveness,’ and ‘lack of remorse for actions’ based on being indifferent to what happens because of their actions.”
