In case you didn’t know, The Good Place has officially reached its final chapter. Because I’m not a ginormous dingus, I wanted to give you a heads up that THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS. You’ve been warned.
First, this eagle-eyed Twitter user points out that Michael’s dog is named Jason, and he’s wearing a bowtie the color of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Another Twitter user pointed out that Michael lives in apartment 12358, the first five digits of the Fibonacci sequence.
You might remember that Michael’s experimental neighborhood in The Good Place contained the Fibonacci sequence, often referred to as “nature’s universal rule.”
Also, Michael lives in Blatta Vista. Blatta is a genus of cockroaches — a clear reference to Team Cockroach from Season 2!
Michael lives in apartment 322, which could possibly be a reference to the number of people in the original Good Place neighborhood.
Tahani receives a peacock bow tie as a gift from Michael. It’s the very same one he wore in the first episode.
This might not come as a huge shock, but when Chidi and Eleanor are in France we spot a sign that lists Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoirs, who were philosophers.
Reddit user LutzExpertTera pointed out that Michael takes down the framed photograph of Doug Forcett in his office and replaces it with his favorite humans.
The sign for the coffee shop that Michael visits pays homage to his sign that he created in the experimental Good Place.
Also, the writers and art department always collaborate beautifully on the signage, and I actually LOL’d when I zoomed in to see what this said.
This Twitter user points out Michael’s human surname is Realman.
And this Twitter user pointed out the symbolic nature of Eleanor’s sweater stripes. (Kristen confirmed it!)
Michael’s guitar teacher (Guitar Mary) is actually Mary Steenburgen, his wife in real life! AWWWWW.
And this Twitter user points out that Chidi and Eleanor wear similar patterned button ups on their last day together.
On earth, there’s a quick shot of Michael celebrating a new year as a human. The art behind him depicts the neighborhood he created in The Good Place.
(Here’s that alleyway with the string lights for reference!)
When Eleanor and Janet sit on the bench before she steps through the door, we see that Janet’s still wearing the necklace Jason gave her.
D’Arcy Carden (Janet) is also wearing it in the interview that immediately followed the finale!
What a forking good series. If there’s anything we might have missed, let us know in the comments!
