🚨Spoiler alert: Our timeline isn't a Jeremy Bearimy, so if you didn't watch last night's episode, "Janet(s)," you should go do that before you read this. 🚨
Holy forking shirtballs, my mind is still reeling over the excellence of this week's The Good Place episode which I 1000% was not ready for even though the cast and writers teased the hell out of it:
Dare I say it really is in contention for the best episode yet?
So, the episode picked up where we left off — with the gang in Janet's void. But, instead of looking like themselves, Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason all manifested as Janets instead — meaning D'Arcy Carden played every main character except Michael in the forkin' episode.
Let me break it down, just so we do not underestimate the masterclass in acting that D'Arcy pulled off. She played Jason:
She played Chidi:
She played Eleanor:
She played Tahani:
She played Eleanor-As-Janet-Pretending-To-Be-Jason-As-Janet:
She played Jason-As-Janet-Pretending-To-Be-Eleanor-As-Janet and gave us the phrase, ARIZONA SHRIMP HORNY:
She played Chidi-As-Janet-Kissing-Eleanor-As-Janet:
She even neutrally played neutral Janet:
It was a little bit like this...
Basically, it was completely genius.
Of course, the brilliant episode gave people some brilliant ideas:
Heck, let them all do it!
And, forget the Oscars, D'Arcy Carden needs ALL THE EMMYS:
And, if all that brilliance wasn't enough, in true Good Place fashion, there was a MAJOR cliffhanger — and it appears they've FINALLY landed in The Good Place.
We won't get another new episode until January (aka next year!), but this has given me enough material to sustain me until 2019.
