The Good Place - Tahani Al-Jamil

Eleanor Shellstrop's (Kristen Bell) determination to prove that her neighbor Tahani Al-Jamil (Jameela Jamil) is an awful person leads her to spend some time with her neighbor, eventually admit her mistake, make a new friend, and discover that she isn't the only member of The Good Place who doesn't belong. Continuing to show us Eleanor's selfish behavior before her death, "Tahani Al-Jamil" continues to allow the character to grow in the afterlife (while fighting her initial instincts). The discovery that Tahani's silent soul mate Jianyu (Manny Jacinto) was also wrongly added to the community suggests Michael (Ted Danson) wasn't ready to oversee his own heavenly suburb. It also raises the question, what else might be wrong?
