After the chaos, Chidi attempts to teach Eleanor on how to be a good person.
Eleanor avoids suspicion in the aftermath of the chaos, and Michael fears he has failed in his first big project. Tahani organizes a clean up day, but anyone who volunteers will miss out on the opportunity to fly. Chidi agrees to teach Eleanor to be a good person, and requires her to volunteer. She does, but then hides the trash to go flying after all, causing a trash storm to occur; Chidi loses faith in her. That night, Eleanor feels guilty and cleans the neighborhood herself; Chidi sees her and agrees to continue to help her. A note is slipped under Eleanor's door, saying that she doesn't belong in The Good Place. Flashbacks to Eleanor's life show that she habitually shirked the responsibility of acting as a designated driver.
