Storyline

Michael has convinced the Judge to meet them all at the IHOP - Inter-dimensional Hole of Pancakes, arguably the most dangerous place in the afterlife, but a place where the Judge's powers are reduced - so that Michael can make the case that it is impossible in today's human life for anyone to make it into the Good Place using the points system if only because humans can never know all the bad consequences of the fundamentally good decisions they can make. It may take some convincing for the Judge to do anything about it, but after a visit to Earth, she does make a proposal to test Michael's hypothesis, it which has a sense of déjà vu especially for Michael in more ways than one. Meanwhile, Jason makes a proposal of his own to Janet, which could be unconsciously affected by what the Judge has decided for the group as a collective to do. Written by Huggo

This was their best so far. Smart - like really smart - Janet's jokes / puns / play on words were brilliant!
