Andy meets Robert California’s wife in NBC’s The Office

After this episode, I’m pretty sure Robert California is a psychopath whose only purpose as the CEO of Dunder Mifflin is to play mind games with Andy. He is the Riddler to Andy’s idiotic Batman, the Jigsaw to his all-the-victims-from-the-Saw-movies. Basically, he just
