Chapter 19: The Trolley Problem is the sixth episode of Season Two of NBC’s The Good Place.


Chidi teaches the trolley problem thought experiment, but Michael's practical knowledge of the afterlife scoring system conflicts with Chidi's theoretical approach.

Supposedly as a learning aid, Michael subjects Chidi to realistic simulations of the trolley problem and related ethical questions, then admits he is deliberately torturing Chidi.

Chidi expels Michael, who tries to placate the humans with extravagant personalized gifts that Chidi calls bribes.

Chidi allows Michael to return after Michael offers an apology that consists of exact, seemingly sincere wording Chidi has pre-approved.

Tahani and Jason continue their relationship, but Tahani insists on secrecy while Jason wants to go public.

Janet becomes their couples counselor; over the course of a month, their relationship improves.

But Janet is performing beyond her specifications, causing worsening glitches; Janet tells Michael the neighborhood could collapse.
