    "The Good Place" Is Over And Now We're In "The Sad Place"

    Major spoiler alert.

    Tonight The Good Place ended with one hell of a finale. There are spoilers from here on out, so proceed with caution!

    NBC

    As many fans predicted, The Good Place finale followed our fave cockroaches as they got ready to walk through the final door and reach peace.

    Jason was the first to be ready — although not the first to leave, thanks to him wanting to see Janet one last time.

    NBC

    He spent a lot of time alone in the woods, bringing his monk storyline full circle.

    Tahani was the next to be ready, but rather than walking through the door, she opted to become an architect, finally giving her purpose and meaning — the thing she struggled to achieve in both life and the afterlife.

    NBC

    Chidi was next, and, heartbreakingly, he was ready before Eleanor. He finally felt sure about something, and, although Eleanor resisted at first, she acted selflessly and let him go.

    NBC

    It shows just how far both characters have come.

    Eleanor was the last human to leave, only ready after she had helped a few more friends: Mindy St. Claire and, most importantly, Michael. She persuaded the Judge to let him finally achieve his dream of becoming a real human.

    NBC

    Upon walking through the door, Eleanor seemed to turn into light that spread out across the universe, a particle of which landed on a human and caused him to perform an act of kindness — reinforcing the idea that Eleanor's very existence had made the universe a better place.

    The show ended with a glimpse of Michael's beautiful, mundane life on Earth, where he was fulfilling all of his beautiful, mundane dreams — touched, one final time, by Eleanor herself.

    NBC

    Needless to say, it was an EMOTIONAL ride, and everything is fine but also NOT FINE AT ALL. Here are some tweets that just about sum it up...

    man this episode of #TheGoodPlace is so meta, just like Eleanor doesn’t want anyone to exit The Good Place, we humans don’t want the show to end. in the end the lesson is we may want an unlimited amount of a good thing but that’s not possible.
