The Good Place - Janet and Michael

"Janet and Michael" delves into one of the show's unanswered questions since revealing that the afterlife community Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and her friends are stuck in is actually Hell rather than Heaven. Focused primarily on Michael (Ted Danson), the episode offers flashbacks to him stealing the robot intelligence he needs to create his community and his early interactions with Janet (D'Arcy Carden). The number of reboots of Janet has caused issue concerning Janet's core programming. Michael's reaction to her logical assumption that she needs to be destroyed in order to save The Good Place, offers a first glimpse of humanity for the demon architect. Maybe there's hope for him yet.
