MASSIVE SPOILERS here – if you haven’t seen Rogue One or season 1 of The Good Place (the whole season is streaming on nbc.com!), go watch them!
Rogue One (highlight to read if the text doesn’t show up)
The Good Place
And it was clearly planned from the beginning, too. Going back and rewatching the season (which I recommend!) you can definitely see little bits here and there. But the best part about this is it takes what originally looked like standard sitcom tropes (Eleanor and Chidi are keeping a secret, but oh no, the marriage counselor and human lie detector have to move in with them!) and makes them calculated and probably sinister. Again, I wasn’t really bothered by these in the first place, because TV shows are gonna TV, but it was very clever!
(of course, now I’m worried that the show can’t possibly top this, but since it got renewed we’ll see what happens in season 2…)
Anyway – a good few months for twists!
