14. Eleanor Shellstrop (The Good Place) and Harvey Specter (Suits)
Eleanor Shellstrop has an ethics professor, a philanthropist and an amateur DJ in her corner. Ironically, she’s shown some conflicted romantic interest in all three. Realistically, it could be real fun to see Tahani and Eleanor give things a go. But the one man that could win her heart, and actually help Eleanor out, is a good lawyer. Being a lawyer in New York, Harvey Specter is pretty much guaranteed a spot in The Bad Place, so really it’s just a matter of time before these two would crossover.
Harvey isn’t well-liked by most people, which is usually something to shy away from. Eleanor Shellstrop isn’t the average woman though. Knowing her, Harvey’s lack of popularity would make him even cooler in her eyes. After getting to know him, Specter is can actually be charming and playful, and Eleanor’s quick wit would challenge his own. There would definitely be some trust issues between the two, but hey, they have an eternity to work through it together in The Bad Place. Once you crack Specter’s shell, he is eternally loyal, and could commit to being great soulmate for Eleanor.
In the meantime, with her newfound ethics and moral code, Eleanor could help to humanize Harvey a bit. She may not make the best decisions, but at least she has fun, and the pair could wreak some fun havoc on Michael once they figure out they’re in The Bad Place (again).
