After discovering its existence from Janet, Eleanor decides to hijack Shawn's train and live her afterlife in the medium place. Jason and Janet are also in tow as Jason wants to live in a place where he and Janet can live as man and wife, something they can't do in the good place but that they can probably do in the medium place away from Michael's scrutiny.

But what Eleanor does, regardless of what she really wants, is dependent upon Jason and Janet. Meanwhile ...
