I'm left wondering how long Micheal and Jason are going to be away, since Jason not being there might ruin the experiment in progress (since they used Jason as the catalyst for the philosophy lessons).

I suspect the experiment won't last too much longer. They've never stuck with a single premise too long.

Also, from the podcast:
one of the guests said something along the lines of "Chidi doesn't have his memories in these episodes". I take that to mean he'll get them back before the end, and I doubt they'd wait until the finale.

Ahhhhhhhhh, this is why I never lose faith in this show, best episode of the season so far

All the hints completely slipped me by, especially the more blatant one of Janet not correcting Jason like she always does. I love when Jason's goofy self always manages to be the sole person that figures out shit like this lol

And this was a really well hidden twist, because even with Janet acting weird, like y'all said, it can easily handwaved as her developing into more like a human or something along those lines.

Janet is the hottest, sorry.
Imagine thinking otherwise, Vicky who?

Also the Bortles thing plus the break up makes way too much sense
Omggggg you're right, funny how someone earlier brought up that they felt it was too mean spirited for Janet to tell Jason, guess they were right

That was the thing that made me suspicious. At first I was just upset because I thought it was a writing slip-up, but then I had a big "whoa" moment.

Such a good ep.

Man, on the topic of searching for twist setups... one of the first things "Linda" asks is if there's a fitness centre. Cause she's gonna go to the gym.

For me, I 100% caught it, but I didn't have enough faith in the show. I thought they just screwed up. :S

I thought they just didn't want to go back to the well too often. Tell the same joke too many times it'll fall flat, but here it was the entire point.

My girlfriend and I watched it yesterday and she said "Oh hey that's super weird, why didn't she correct him??" and I was all "Duh baaabe, its showing her character growth!"

Fucking got me, writers. Ya got me.

I know it should have been more obvious to me but the reason the shoe has chapters instead of episodes is this is clearly someone recounting the book of Eleanor. And will end with her picture (and the others?) frames in the good place

I think it will end with people talking about Eleanor changing and solving the system like how Doug was supposed to be the model of what someone who gets to the Good place should be like.

I’m hoping for a series swerve. I’m over the ‘experiment’ - taking up too much time for the final season.

Okay, so are we finally done with people thinking that Michael is actually Vicky in the Michael suit? Y'know, on account of her getting exploded.
Anyone else think we'll find out next episode that a human or two overheard Eleanor and Tahani's conversation at the end?
I was expecting that reveal the entire time the scene was going on (though considering how the scene was put together, there didn't look to be many places the human could be hiding except behind the camera).

Eleanor calling tahani babe the whole time was funny

Boooooo i hope that's not really the end of Vicky

Oh God the foles then the clavicle reveal was hilarious. They had to have added that part post production since they probably filmed before that I would guess

Here's an interesting article about Janet and now nonbinary people relate to her.


You could say the same with Michael and his transition from a demon to something different. I got both of these from the aaV Club review.

Same here. It's way past time to move on already.

Also, did anyone notice that Vicky exploded in some pink goo whereas Glenn and Shawn's bodyguard exploded in blue? Why was that?
Are the demons gendered outside of their human skinsuits? Those are the common girl/boy colours these days, respectively.

I don't think Eleanor got all of her memories back when they were in Arizona - I got the impression that Michael only restored enough of them to try to make his point. Tahani definitely wasn't shown getting her memories back. I think that that scene was just to let us know, "Okay, the versions of them from S1 and S2 are back."

Wasn't Eleanor the time when they were in the library in Arizona and it made her hair and teeth fall out? I can't remember Tahani off the top of my head.
Oh yeah, I think you're right. Thanks.

Yeah, I think you're right too. It just seemed so weird that they were able to do that. I don't know why but I thought that when they erase their memories, it's permanent. *throws hands up* But I guess not.

Pretty sure you're right about all of that, yeah. And, I know for a fact that Eleanor didn't get all her memories back in Arizona. She explicitly just re-lived a few of them out of hundreds of years.

Jason's "Can I have all of my memories back again, I forgot most of them" line really got me.
