Storyline

While Eleanor and Michael wait for the others to return to Arizona, Eleanor is eventually able to convince Michael to provide some remembrance of her afterlife, especially with regard to what Michael told her about she being capable of love as she and Chidi had professed their love for each other. Michael has his own reasons for not wanting to provide Eleanor this insight, he being selective in what he does show her, but he does try to convince her that she does love Chidi, that despite what she feels she learned from her parents about being incapable of loving. Eleanor takes something entirely differently from what Michael shows her, without realizing how much of an influence Chidi truly has been in her life and afterlife. Written by Huggo

A nostalgic trip
12 November 2018 | by jwwalrath-227-85487See all my reviews

We get to see past exploits in the Good Place, and though I'm liking the new path, I was nostalgic for the place.

Another really funny episode. Eleanor and Michael's excellent chemistry continues. Loved the last scene.
