Michael doesn't tell the Judge what's going on as he and Janet monitor the four humans' individual progress as the four have each fallen into somewhat the same routine that got them into the Bad Place the first time around despite they making initial changes in their behaviors and attitudes immediately after their respective near death experience.

Chidi Anagonye: So for Aristotle, virtue is practical. Goodness isn't something that a person just inherently has. It's something that she achieves through her actions. Questions?

"My year started a year ago" -Jason :D
28 September 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

Oh finally ... the show still has it .. strong come back .. I loved Jason the most ,, the dude is hilarious ,, and these humorous naive lines are just 100% perfect with his character ... but over all, Chidi, Eleanor, Tahani, Jason , Janet and Michael all did amazing each in his own story of redemption after that death experience .. still as engaging as ever ,, with of course a surprising twist right in the end of the episode.

here's the start of another 13 episodes of full guaranteed fun new experiment designed by the immortal after-life creatures.
