    Just a few brief thoughts for now.

    This episode opened with one of the simplest, most-obvious, yet somehow funniest lines of the whole series: "What the here is going on?" Brilliant. I'll be using that.

    I spent a lot of the episode wondering if Vicky was still bad Vicky and was running a scheme. Say, by being so good at devising tests for Tahani that's she's actually torturing her. But it seems the show is using the opportunity of her having been blasted into goo and reformed to actually reform her. Just as well with only a couple of episodes left; there's likely not enough time to execute another twist of some sort. And the show has moved past that part of the narrative anyway. Interesting though that this episode didn't end on a cliffhanger of any sort, which is very rare -- I mean, if you don't count wondering what the Good Place is like as a cliffhanger.

    I'm very curious how the show is going to end. At the start of the season I though the finale would be about saving humankind, but that's done, apparently. What's next?

    Fooooooles!

    Well, Vicky is still all about herself, so she didn't get THAT much better ;)

    She's happy now because she gets to be the lead...it all revolves around her!

    She's a strong, independent acid snake in the skin suit of a strong, independent woman.

    It got a little dusty at the end when Michael revealed the sound of someone getting into the Good Place was for the four humans. And then when listening to the podcast and they got to that part, it got dusty again. I didn't realize I was so emotionally involved in this show.

    IIRC, the finale is an hour so we get more like three episodes of running time before it's over. (And then NBC is running a cast panel after the finale, too.) So a little silver lining. :)

    NBC has released the description for the final episode...

    “various conversations occur, between various groups of people.”

    No reason to spoiler this, nothing more then personal speculation. I haven't read this anywhere.

    Could it end with the four in charge of the bad place? Learn how to work with molten lava and flatten ***. Take over from Sean.

    Please adjust your irony detector, it doesn't seem to be registering.

    Man, I really love this show. It truly makes me feel good after watching. There other shows that I like but this one is kind of special to me.

    I will miss it but kudos to them for going out while it was still good.

    I don't know about that. Two episodes from the end we all thought "Game of Thrones" was going out on top...

    We did?!?

    A lot of people spent the whole final season complaining about how far downhill the show had gone...
