The entire group arrived in the Good Place and discovered that the smell of the Good Place changes for each individual. Janet destroyed the portal from accounting so that no one could travel after them. Michael tried to convince the woman running the mail room that they belonged there. She enlisted Jason, Tahani, Janet, and Michael to help her clean up the mailroom, while Eleanor and Chidi tired to find a way out of the building. Michael learned how to contact the Committee and quickly did so. Jason spoke with Tahani about the feelings that Janet obviously harbored for him, and she advised him to talk to Janet directly. But Janet quickly shut down the conversation in her ongoing attempt to portray a neutral version of herself.
The Committee arrived and Michael laid out his accusations against the Bad Place. They agreed to investigate the matter and listen to Michael’s reasoning. Chidi managed to convince Eleanor to go a date with him. Michael explained his reasoning to the Committee, and used Doug Forcett as an example before the group discussed how to proceed. Tahani and Jason explained how they met each other to the mail lady. She took Jason to sort out baskets, while Janet and Tahani discussed their feelings for Jason. Eleanor and Chidi began their date and discussed how they didn’t care about getting into the Good Place as long as they have each other. The Committee decided to put a team together to investigate the accounting system. They estimated it would take no longer than 1400 years to begin the investigation.
Tahani and Jason decided that their marriage was no longer valid as they both had died. Tahani gave both Jason and Janet permission to engage with one another. Eleanor broke down in tears at the kindness that Chidi had shown towards her. Chidi managed to comfort her with reassuring philosophical quotes. Tahani found Michael and he told her that the Committee was no help. He attempted to devise a new plan, but Tahani asked how they could help Janet and Jason. Unintentionally, Tahani helped Michael find a new solution. He heard Tahani state that her actions had ‘unintended consequences’. Michael looked into Doug’s points because had done the same thing, which resulted in different point adjustments. He found that the Bad Place wasn’t tampering, and in fact, the world was just becoming more complex. As a result, being a good person was more complex than ever before. Michael called the Judge and decided to meet with her at IHOP in order to discuss the future of humanity.
