During a brainstorm session, Michael, Jim, and Dwight decide to set up a sting operation to observe Danny's sales techniques. They set up Meredith Palmer (Kate Flannery) as the CEO of the fictional company Solartech in Dwight's office, fitted with security cameras, and watch from another room. Danny is then sent in to try to make a sale. All starts well until Meredith attempts to seduce him. Dwight and Jim send in Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez) to save the sting, but Meredith strong-arms him into submission. After she does the same to Ryan Howard (B. J. Novak), Michael rushes in to call the whole thing off. Danny becomes infuriated and walks off. Michael catches up to him and offers him a job, pointing out that with Sabre's better pricing, he could make more sales as a traveling salesman for them. He accepts the offer, and Michael introduces him as the new salesman to the office. The rest of the sales staff act disrespectful towards him, worrying that Danny will take their clients. Michael tells them how well sales numbers will go up with Danny as a part of the branch, and that he is not going to rescind Danny's job offer just because it makes the other salespeople uncomfortable. Before Dwight leaves for the day, he viciously insults Danny about his alleged mistreatment of Pam and client-stealing past, then immediately welcomes him to the company.


In its original American broadcast on October 21, 2010, "The Sting" was viewed by an estimated 6.87 million viewers and received a 3.4 rating/9 percent share among adults between the ages of 18 and 49. This means that it was seen by 3.4 percent of all 18- to 49-year-olds, and 9 percent of all 18- to 49-year-olds watching television at the time of the broadcast.[10] The episode's rating dropped 11 percent from the previous episode to its lowest ever fall telecast at the time.[10][11] The episode ranked second in its timeslot, after an episode of the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) series Grey's Anatomy, and was the highest-rated NBC series of the night.[11]


Myles McNutt of The A.V. Club rated the episode with an "A" grade. He felt the episode was the "highlight" of the season. McNutt applauded that Michael was portrayed in a way that was neither "too dumb or too ignorant" and that he was able to have the final moment where he showed that he was a skilled salesman. Despite noting that the sting was not realistic, he further enjoyed that Michael, Dwight, and Jim were allowed to react to the situation rather than becoming part of it.[12] Jason Hughes of AOL's TV Squad gave the episode a positive review and praised the use of Meredith, calling her "hilarious and so spot-on". Furthermore, he, like McNutt, enjoyed that Michael was portrayed as competent in the end. Hughes also enjoyed the B-story and wrote that "it was a sweet moment when Darryl told Andy he didn't have to pay him any more to jam with them".[13]


During a brainstorm session, Michael, Jim, and Dwight decide to set up a sting operation to see how Danny is stealing all of their clients and observe his sales techniques. They set up Meredith as the CEO of Solartech (a fictional company), in Dwight's office that has been fitted with security cameras, and watch from another room. Danny is then sent in to try to make a sale. All starts well until Meredith attempts to seduce him, forcing Dwight and Jim to send in Oscar and then Ryan to save the sting. When Meredith strong arms both of them, a grossed out Michael rushes in to call the whole thing off. Danny is infuriated and walks off, but before he leaves the building, Michael offers him a job. Michael points out how much money Danny would make as a traveling salesman for Dunder Mifflin, as they do have better prices and services than his current company, "can you imagine how well you would do selling our stuff?" Danny accepts the offer, and Michael introduces him as the new salesman to the office. The rest of the sales staff (minus a distracted Andy) confront Michael about this decision in his office, worried that Danny will take their clients. Michael tells them sales numbers will go up with Danny a part of the branch now, and that just because they are threatened by him being a better salesman, does not mean he should be turned away. Before Dwight leaves for the day he viciously insults Danny, then near immediately changes his tone and welcomes him to the company, scoffing at Jim's confusion by replying "It's after 5:00 Jim, I'm not gonna take this home."


They used Meredith as the boss of the fake company and she starts acting inappropriate with Danny. They send both Oscar and Ryan in to save her, but she says that neither of them can speak English, so Michael goes in to pull the plug on the sting.


Because Cordray knows Michael, Dwight, and Jim, they force Meredith to play the business owner in their fake meeting with Danny. Meredith ruins the sting by trying seduce Danny, and Michael, who had been watching the whole encounter, is forced to offer Danny a job, which Danny accepts.
