Storyline

Eleanor discovers that the person sending her what she believes are threatening notes is not Tahani as she initially believed, but rather Jianyu. The notes are not meant to be threatening but rather a call for help, as Jianyu is a fraud like her, and should not be in the good place. He is not Jianyu Li, a Taiwanese Buddhist monk as everyone believes, but rather Jason Mendoza, an ethnic Filipino from Jacksonville, Florida, a not very good electronic dance music DJ and drug dealer with a frat boy mentality. The problem for Eleanor and eventually Chidi, who also learns about Jianyu's true identity, is that once Jianyu opens up about his Jason life, he has opened up a floodgate of frat boy emotions which may not be able to be rebottled. As such, he has no real desire to stay in the good place as he just wants to return to his partying ways. And if Jianyu gets caught, it is inevitable that Eleanor will also be exposed at the same time. So Eleanor and Chidi have to try and convince Jianyu ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

When Michael (Ted Danson) tells Tahani (Jameela Jamil) he plans to wear suspenders, her momentary confusion is caused by a difference in meaning between British and American English. Suspenders in British English are what Americans would call garters, and what an American would call suspenders, a British English speaker would call braces. See more »

Goofs

When Jason takes him there, Chidi realizes that Jason had said "bud hole" and not a similar, anatomical, phrase. Since Chidi hears speech in French, the two phrases would not sound similar. See more »

Quotes

Jianyu Li: Everyone thinks I'm Taiwanese. I'm Filipino. That's racist. Heaven is so racist.
