'The Good Place' series finale leaves fans torn between sadness and happiness

After four seasons, NBC's The Good Place has come to an end. During the series finale Thursday, our beloved characters each learned, in their own time, that they were ready to leave the good place as they either walked through the final door or, in Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and Michael's (Ted Danson) case, found a new role for themselves. After Jason (Manny Jacinto) and Tahani each told their friends they were leaving, Eleanor (Kristen Bell) struggled as her boyfriend Chidi (William Jackson Harper) told her it was time for him to go as well. In fact, Eleanor even tried to guilt-trip him into staying. “Jason's gone, Tahani's off doing her thing and I'm not ready to go, so if you leave, then I'm alone here. I was alone my whole life, and I told myself I like it that way, but I don't. I like being with you,” Eleanor told Chidi. However, in the end, since Eleanor has become a better person, she let him go. Cheleanor fans' hearts were, of course, broken Thursday. Here were just a few of their reactions: Even Danson chimed in: However, while viewers were emotional over The Good Place ending, on the other hand, they were also happy because they thought the series finale was "perfect." Fans also praised the fact that the series knew exactly “how and when to say goodbye,” and didn't drag on forever. Something many television shows succumb to. During the live after show with NBC host Seth Meyers, even Kristen Bell pointed out how beautiful and symbolic that was, when she stated, "There is this beautiful thing you can do, as a writer, that they did on the show, which is, like, the show ended too soon. You wanted, maybe we did, wanted more of it. But that's just what you get. That's the amount of time you get. It's a little too short. It's a lot like life."
