Wow - Eleanor chose damnation with her friends over heaven! And told them that she failed as well, purely to make them feel better. That's some growth.
I thought it was some character assassination of Chidi when he said they should leave without the others, so I'm glad that was just Eleanor's test.
I guess Michael is somehow going to get them a reprieve (or at perhaps a retrial)?
Loved this exchange:
Eleanor: "You understand about 20% of what's going on"
Jason: "Aw, thanks"
Tahani's test reminded me of Orpheus and Eurydice (and like Orpheus, Tahani failed it). I don't have a problem with the test having secret conditions because so did everyone else's - Eleanor was told she and Chidi could leave without the others (she would presumably have failed had she taken that offer), Chidi's wasn't told there was a time limit on his choice and we have no idea what the conditions of Jason's test were because he didn't wait to hear them. In fact, Jason's test reminded me of this.
I thought it might be Mindy, too, though you'd think a case would have arisen before then (particularly as Mindy presumably died sometime around 2000)
This goes with my theory that Janet is God. Also, I don't think Sean (Shawn?) is meant to be omnipotent (clearly not, or Janet couldn't throw him around like that), so much as a mid level bureaucrat. If there is a Satan figure in the TGPverse, we haven't met him yet (IMO).
But he was wearing a white shirt, so the white hat would match that. Then again, nobody should ever take my opinion on anything fashion related.
Whereas I instinctively think of Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars, but I guess they won't have seen that (at least I'd hope not).
Doctor Who portrayed "God" (well, the Avatar of a sentient Universe, at any rate) as a bullfrog!
