#TheGoodPlace S1 Ep.5 "Chapter 5: Category 55 Emergency Doomsday" Recap an Review
In what turns out to be another hilarious and probably one of my favorite episodes out of the five that the show has aired so far.
As Michael treats everyone with an all kind of flavor frozen yogurt, due to last weeks sink hole. As Eleanor couldn't figure out what she wanted, she let another person cut in line, which was a good thing and ran back to Chidi to tell him what happen.
After class, Eleanor feels that after what she had done that Chidi could teach her more. But she doesn't pick up the signs that he's pretty tired of teaching for the day. Later she picks up his excuses, Chidi tells her that she's been a full-time job and that he wants to take a break and not teach all the time.
That kind of put their friendship and soulmate relationship to the test. At the same time, that sinkhole has grown bigger and causing a Category 55 Emergency Doomsday Crisis for Michael and Janet to handle. At that time, Michael orders the people in The Good Place to stay inside their homes or anyplace that they're in and not to go outside.
Michael takes a couple that lives where the sink hole has grown and placed them with Eleanor and Chidi. That caused them a little tension til that couple could read their non-verbal gestures and for which they talked to them about their problem. One guy notice that one of them was hiding something and that was Chidi, for which he tells that he had never had a soulmate on Earth and thought it was going to be what he had thought about, but not with someone like Eleanor. That lead to them two going to bed together.
But Eleanor and Chidi worked things out as Eleanor gives Chidi his fantasy paradise, drinking wine and reading french poetry while on a boat, Yuck!, right?
Meanwhile, during this episode, Tahani snooped into Michael's files and saw that she's in the second to last on the neighborhood list rankings. That drew her to trying to become a better person, for which we understand why during a few flashbacks with her family. Seeing that she's always the second best than her sister at what she does. But Michael gotten it straightened out with her that the rankings are the official numbers after they died.
The next day, the sink hole has been recovered and back to it's solid ground. That cheers everyone expect for Michael and tells Eleanor that they are going to busy dealing to whatever has caused this no matter what it takes.
As I said at the beginning, this might be one of my favorite episodes of the five so far in this series. Loved the relationship between Chidi and Eleanor, that's the one thing that made me loving this episode. I also enjoyed Tahani's storyline as we understand why she always had to be amazing around people and getting their approvals.
And I don't know about you, but I would love to see the list of what kind of flavors they got in the shop. The Full Charged Battery sounds like a relaxing flavor to try.
