The Good Place – Season 1 Finale (Michael’s Gambit)

The job of a season finale is to wrap up the season’s story arcs and subplots, and establish new story arcs and subplots for the next season. This finale did its job perfectly by completing turning the whole season on its head with a plot twist that will completely affect how the next season is written.

The episode kicks off with a flashback of Michael working, with his younger superior, Dave, informing him that their boss is allowing Michael to design his own neighbourhood. Michael is ecstatic and tells Dave that he will work hard to ensure his neighbourhood is perfect and won’t let him down. Dave points him in the direction of the ‘Architects Only’ area and wishes him luck.
