EW has an oral history of the Oct. 8, 2009 "Niagara" episode. Paul Feig, who directed the wedding episode, said there was a "big controversy" over the original ending. Feig says of the original plan: "All throughout the episode, Roy’s (David Denman) been kind of haunting around and unhappy that they’re getting married, so when they ask if anybody has reason why this couple can’t get married, he rides into the church on a horse to sweep Pam off her feet like a knight in shining armor and declares, 'I have an objection.' And she’s like, 'What are you doing? No, I want to get married.' She sends him away, so he has to ride his horse back out of the church. But then, in an absolute insane thing, they had this crazy ending where Dwight (Rainn Wilson) gets the horse and rides it into the falls."
