  1. This episode was hysterical!
  2. Wow, I didn't expect that surprise at the end! It opens a lot of possibilities now; I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. Deus ex machina indeed! I like how Dan put aside the demonic situation for Chloe. He's going to be fine. And I guess it's easier if you have people you can talk about it with. They can help you to get over the shock.
  3. Omg, so the Lucifer who was with Chloe wasn't Lucifer? Didn't see that coming! The bit about Hell being built on people's guilt still sounds wrong to me, but I guess we have to assume it makes sense.
  4. I think the door is the opposite to suicide. It means you are in peace: as a human, you've reached your peak, the human Nirvana. Time to become one with the universe. I saw a reference to a short story called The Immortal, by Borges. I loved it when I read it, back in the day. It's about a guy who is looking for a race of immortal humans. He thinks they will be wise and admirable, but when he finds them, they turn out to be like lazy beasts. Because everything they could learn or do, they could do it in the future. Without time, there is no purpose, no meaning. Anyway, I loved the episode. Didn't cry, but it was sweet. I'm glad we saw different paths and so many old friends. I'm going to miss this show a lot. Its humanity and optimism are amazing.
  5. I remember having read that the human mind can't really grasp the concept of eternity. In any case, I simply think that humans aren't made for eternity. Unless there's some spiritual evolution and we become something else, something inhuman, eternity is bound to become torture. So the twist about Patty and the others sounds very logical to me. Otoh, who knows what's really on the other side of the door? I mean, if there's something like a God in the show's universe, crossing that door could actually lead to another level of existence that goes beyond humanity. However, I don't think the characters have ever mentioned the existence of a God. I loved the episode and it was a joy to see Lisa Kudrow as Patty. Chidi's reaction to her was one of the best things in the world. And ffs, one of Tahani's godparents is the Big Ben!!!!
  6. I agree that there must be something wrong with the Good Place, mostly because in my opinionl, really good people could never live happily their lives while knowing that other good-normal people are being tortured forever. Maybe that's Team Cockroach's new mission.
  7. I'm not sure this episode was the right choice as l season finale. I guess I expected something more focused on Elizabeth and I wasn't really interested in Margaret and Roddy. However, I loved the scene with the two sisters, and the conversation between Elizabeth and the retiring PM.
  8. I don't think Uncle Nazi deserved such an epic shot for his death. You know, the music, the slow-mo etc. He was a Nazi and a traitor, after all. However, his moment of final vanity was amazing, so true to himself! Also, I was surprised to see Wallis so affected by his death because half of the time I got the feeling that she despised him. I loved how much Philip hated him, but I guess Elizabeth needed to have that little last moment with him. I'm not very familiar with Camilla, but the actress doesn't remind me of her at all. Is she good? Anne is a total badass.
  9. I'm surprised Philip and the dean became such close friends, but I loved it when he asked for help, which was an echo of the episode when young Philip was in his boarding school. I guess that Philip, after all, has always enjoyed being part of a group: his school, the army...So yes, it makes sense. And who knew he was an idealistic? I guess Elizabeth knew that the priest/dean was interested in psychology? It was too much of a coincidence.
  10. Oh, wow, the actor who plays Charles is amazing! And poor Charles, btw. He's starving for affection. It was like The Speech of the Prince.
  11. The scene with Lord Mounbatten and princess Alice was a wonder. Anyway, Elizabeth and Philip have really shitty relatives, heh. Judging by the show, I agree with Elizabeth: she would have been happier raising horses.
  12. I'm curious about the real story behind this episode. Didn't know princess Anne was so smart and sensible.
  13. I was surprised when she admitted she couldn't cry or maybe feel grief, I don't know, but seeing her crying at the end maybe means that she's been forced to repress her emotions for so long that it's normal to become a bit robotic or numb. It was touching to know that she's been back several times.
  14. Wow, this episode was insanely good! Margaret is a fascinating character and I'm often sorry for her. I just loved the way she handled the White House situation and the scene where the PM is telling the Queen about the limericks had me rolling. Anyway, I must agree with Philip: she would have been a terrible queen. She can't stop being Margaret and I guess that sometimes you need to stop being yourself in order to become the Queen, even if it goes against everything you want or need.On the other hand, I think Margaret, unlike Uncle Nazi, really takes the Crown seriously and wants to honour it. Tobias Menzies is amazing as Philip. My new theory is that he's the spiritual heir of Alan Rickman.
  15. We're back! Loved the bit about the stamps as a comment on the change of actors heh. Elizabeth and Philip's relationship seems way more relaxed and mature now and the actors have great chemistry. Sadly, you can't say the same about Margaret and her husband.(I mean the relationship between the characters, they seem to be unhappy).
