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. What they find in the medium place, as Janet had mentioned, is exactly one person, Mindy St. Claire. The medium place was a compromise by the authorities in both the good place and the bad place to deal with the unusual situation of Mindy, who was basically a bad person who did one spectacularly good thing before she died in the 1980s. While Jason's sole initial goal in the medium place is to figure out a way for he and Janet to have sex, Eleanor finds that mediocrity may not be all it's cracked up to be as witnessed by Mindy. But what Eleanor does, regardless of what she really wants, is dependent upon Jason and Janet. Meanwhile ... Written by Huggo
