Storyline

Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason are now in Janet's world, an endless void, made necessary when Shawn's minion demons came a calling out of his makeshift portal.

Quotes

Eleanor-6: Chidi... I'm scared.
Chidi (as Janet): I know.
Eleanor-6: What am I supposed to be doing right now? I don't remember.
[morphs into a new body]
Eleanor-7: I'm having a hard time remembering.
[begins to morph repeatedly into many different bodies]
Chidi (as Janet): Right. Memories. You need to remember who you are. You're Eleanor Shellstrop from Phoenix, Arizona. Your favorite meal is shrimp scampi.

Deserves more than 10 stars
15 August 2019 | by rockinpink123See all my reviews

This is a brilliant, hilarious episode of television featuring a tour de force performance from D'Arcy Carden. Not many actors can convincingly embody their fellow castmates' well defined characters, and she does it spectacularly. Carden was seriously robbed of an Emmy nomination for this one. The script (which was nominated) is hilarious and especially features some fantastic moments for Jason-Janet. It's also a huge episode that sets up the rest of the season.

Easily one of my favorite episodes of the series to date. And I cannot emphasize this enough: D'ARCY. DESERVED. AN. EMMY.
