Eleanor is gonna find that recording next episode, mark my words.

That premiere was nothing and everything like I expected. Just great.

I approve of this.

It would be amazing if there was a reboot every single episode but I don't think that's where they're going.

I joke guessed that the Good Place was Michael's personal Bad Place after like the first or second episode of season 1, is that a real theory now? Did I meme?

I'm going to reiterate my theory from the last thread that probably won't be proven/disproven for many seasons but here goes: Michael is the Devil. No one knows he's the Devil. No one is in on it. This premiere only cemented this idea in my mind. He's literally torturing everyone, from the main characters, to the "actors" who are supposed to be in on it, to the judge who just wants this little experiment to be over. Even the name Michael means "who is like God?"

Michael is the Devil.

We got a live one over here! I like it.

I do think at some point it will be revealed that the demons were never torturing "real people" somehow. I just don't see Schur committing to the idea that most of humanity is actually having their dicks smashed or budholes filled with spiders for eternity.

Also, noticed: in the reboot, the picture of the stoner is still in Michael's office. After the way season 1 went, I 100% expect him to actually play a part in the show somehow.

Is it plot-critical or an oversight that Eleanor is the only person that always summons Janet when she says her name?

Like when she's trying to remember it and Chidi goes "You mean Janet?" and she goes "YEAH! Janet!" "Hi there!"

I noticed it a couple other times too. Hmm. :think:

I love the idea that Michael is God, or that he's the Devil, but one thing that kinda makes that seem unlikely to me - if that's true, why show us the scenes of him "psyching himself up" before talking to his boss? Those play out like he is legit afraid of being caught, which he shouldn't be if he's either God or the Devil.

Those scenes would, however, make perfect sense if he's a "good angel" that got mistakenly assigned to work in the Bad Place (whoah... it's like poetry, it rhymes!) and he's scared of blowing his cover.

Supercar Gautier posted:

I suspect he likes humans more than he'd care to admit to himself or other demons (which is why he designed a Bad Place neighbourhood this way in the first place), and his arc could involve realizing that.

Isn't that functionally the same as when I posited that he was a "good angel mistakenly assigned to the Bad Place though? It would more or less shake out the same either way.

The ultimate twist: they're not in the Bad Place, they've been on Earth and alive the whole time, plugged into a VR game that's been taken over by a rogue AI (Michael) that's been torturing them by putting them on a television show.

I wonder how many episodes until they go to The Bad Place. I can't think of a good reason for them to do so, but it feels inevitable.

Though I halfway expect them to show up and have it turn out that all the screams are fake and everyone scrambles to act like they're in hell.
