One of the new residents creates a division in the ranks.
Michael visits Bad Janet in Janet's void and tells her a story about how everything in the Afterlife experiment was going well, until Brent completed his racist and misogynistic novel, complete with characters based on people in The Good Place. Brent wants Simone to introduce his book at his book signing, and she ridicules it to Tahani. Chidi spirals out about the character based on him, which results in John finding out that Jason is not really Jianyu. Tahani eventually loses it, reading Brent the riot act and the experiment appears to be up in flames. The humans dust themselves off, however, and brainstorm new ideas to turn it around. This leads Michael to free Bad Janet and be better than he was yesterday.
