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.

The perfect ending to every story.
The perfect mix of laughter and tears.
The perfect commentary on life.

Thank you to the writers, cast, and everyone involved with #TheGoodPlace for giving us something I never thought possible: a half-hour sitcom that managed more compelling plot twists — and *a lot* more heart — than anything else on TV. I’ll forking miss you.
