The Good Place: Will a unicorn save Eleanor in the midseason finale?

Eleanor Shellstrop is between a rock and a hard place — and more specifically, the Good Place and the Bad Place.

She has outed herself as the glitch in the afterlife paradise, and now her fate lies in the hands of Good guy Michael (Ted Danson) and Bad guy Trevor (Adam Scott). In this opening scene from the midseason finale of The Good Place (Thursday, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, NBC), the two opposite overlords try to sort out the mess that occurred when another Eleanor Shellstrop just happened to be in the same grocery store in Phoenix as our Eleanor (Kristen Bell). One was picking up food for a homeless shelter while in town attending a conference on the death penalty, and the other was there to purchase margarita mix and the latest issue of Celebrity Baby Plastic Surgery Disasters.

Watch this clip to see which Eleanor was there doing which thing. Okay, you already know the answer to that. But watch the clip anyway to find out how this mix-up might have occurred — and how a unicorn might help fix this mess.
