As Eleanor and the gang get through the dimension to meet the judge, will they be able to go to The Good Place or back to The Bad Place?
As Eleanor and the gang get through the dimension without Michael and Janet, they’ll have to confront the judge on their own. They meet with the judge, Jan, who after listening to them and going through their files, tells them that she rules them to go back to The Bad Place.
But after listening to Eleanor’s argument, Jan decides to give them a test and if they pass they would go. But Eleanor wants her to grade them together, not separated. The test shows how their strength of will power, decision making, and just to step back. All of which, Jason, Chidi and Tahani failed but Eleanor passed but decides to stick with her nerdy friends.
As they were dealing with the judge, Michael deals with Shaun and faces severe punishment, along with Janet who is back in her marble state. But just as Michael was about to be placed in a room full of The New Yorker magazines (the madness!), Bad Janet turns out to be Good Janet and kicks Shaun’s butt and gets Michael out and headed to meet with Eleanor and gang before Jan sends them back.
“The Burrito” was another half hour of pure comedy as this series closes out another great season. The performances from the cast was amazing. Jameela Jamil’s performance really stood out the most during Jan’s test of having Tahani just walk past the doors of compliments but decides to go in on with her parents and face them about how they love her sister more than her. Also, Shaun has been given some witty scenes the last couple of episodes that I really couldn’t stop laughing. Maya Rudolph was amazing as Jan, the Judge. The story of this episode was solid. I don’t know what to expect but I’m going to guess that in the season finale (yes there’s a Third season!) to expect the unexpected.
Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
