With his first experiment a failure in large part he believing because he paired them up, Michael has rebooted it to torture Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason, erasing their memories of the first go 'round, this time he separating the four but retaining those aspects of the first time which truly did torture them. Michael's plan is still to center the concept on Eleanor and Jason, who will still be mistaken as a Buddhist monk named Jiyanu, knowing they don't belong in the Good Place, while torturing all four initially through some aspect of their new soul mates which are not at all truly what they would consider their soul mate. Eleanor is still to be the catalyst to make it hell for all four of them. Before the formal reboot, Michael convenes the actors to discuss their new personae, some who are confused by their new role and some who just don't like their new role. Michael is also unaware that Eleanor left herself a note implanted into Janet's mouth to "find Chidi" immediately ... Written by Huggo

Chris Baker: Oh, I told her I was going to the gym again.
Michael: Why would you say that in the middle of a party?
Chris Baker: You told me to.
Michael: No, I didn't.
Chris Baker: You said if Eleanor tries to confess that she doesn't belong here, find a reason to avoid her. Like saying "I'm going to the gym." So that's what I've been saying.
Michael: That was a suggestion of the *type* of thing you could say. Don't...
