‘A Silent Place: Part 2’ is written and directed by John Krasinski, so you could not miss a connection to ‘The Office’, a comedy series that launched his career to fame.
When we see John Krasinski in A Silent Place: Part 2 it is impossible not to remember for fans of The Office and go back to that time when the actor played Jim Halpert, central character for the success of the sitcom and that appeared for eight years. And since the interpreter does not forget his roots, there is a subtle connection between the series and the recent horror film, taking advantage of the fact that he is the scriptwriter and director. Undoubtedly, something that makes those who have followed since then happy.
All of this comes when Regan (Millicent Simmonds), at the beginning of the sequel, is taking a look at her dad’s old map that contains the New York coastline. Turns out the camera makes a little fixation in Stamford, Connecticut, that many followers of The Office It might sound like you, since in that place is the branch of Dunder Mifflin to which Jim is transferred in season 3 of the sitcom.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that John Krasinski has made reference to The Office, since in A Quiet Place there is a sequence in which Lee and Evelyn (Emily Blunt) dance calmly and slowly while listening to an iPod sharing headphones. Something very similar happened in the second season of the sitcom when Jim and Pam (Jenna Fischer) are listening to music. Obviously John is more than satisfied with his participation in the series and therefore it is curious that he makes these kinds of connections, especially that they are so subtle, capable of fitting into the horror film and, at the same time, being evident to the eye from fans of the show that ended in 2013.

While walking in the dangerous weather they meet other characters like Emmett (Cillian Murphy), who little by little begins to get more involved in the actions and ends up helping Regan on a specific mission. Throughout the plot we not only see the peculiar connection with The Office, but there are also other curious facts.
Remember that A Silent Place: Part 2 continues in cinemas in Mexico and various parts of the world, Even a third installment is already confirmed, although it will not be directed by John Krasinski, who will give the place of writer and director to Jeff Nichols. For now it is uncertain if it will be the continuation of the Abbott story or if it will be a spin-off focused on other inhabitants of the cinematic universe, however, with the change in command it could also be the end of the references to The Office in this franchise, at least until John gets back to the front.
