I think it's been ever since ep. 0201 ["The One Where Michael Leaves"], and we find out that he's threatened to leave the family several times before. In the end, he always comes back, probably because thinking that he's the only one saving the family is comforting to him.
But, his character's become pretty dark this season: from becoming more selfish (the corvette), to making more problems than he solves (imagining luceille 2's "takeover" of the company), to just becoming a shoddy father (almost the entire episode of "Hand To God"), we are starting to see that Michael's just as messed up as everyone else in the family.
It's almost funnier, seeing Michael starting to screw up a lot. I was getting a little irritated at the end of Season 1 that Michael was never wrong and always did the right thing. Sometimes doing the wrong thing's even funnier. He's starting to unravel, along with the family and company. The funny thing is, he's just as oblivious as everyone else in the show, and doesn't even know it.
