The mystery of why Donna saved Brooke Thompson by injecting an antidote after she was given the lethal injection is finally out: she wants to do good, after what she did to Brooke.
And as Brooke complains about never having the 80s she deserved because of Margaret's (Leslie Grossman) lies, Donna takes her out for a girls night that will give you major El-Max feels if you've been a 'Stranger Things' fan.
When Donna (Angelica Ross) sneaks Brooke (Emma Roberts) out of the prison and into a motel room, of course, the latter has a lot of questions. Brooke pins Donna against the wall and threatens to attack her if she doesn't reveal her ulterior motive.
Donna comes clean saying she knows they will all go somewhere after they die and she wants to make sure she sets things right so she gets to the good place, not the other one.
As the conversation happens, Brooke spots a print advertisement of the massive Camp Redwood gala and her hatred and thirst for vengeance comes back.
Donna asks her to drop it but Brooke insists she can't just forget the fact that she spent a thousand plus days locked up because of the "lying b**ch" Margaret, losing out on the 80s awakening of America.
She counted every single day, every single tile, and every single crack in the walls of her prison cell as she served time under wrongful incarceration, imagining about all the things on the outside that she was missing out on.
Donna, in a strikingly new good friend avatar, tells Brooke there is someplace where the 80s are still far from over.
And just like Max (Sadie Sink) took Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) on a day out in the mall, giving her makeovers, surfing through clothes, eating ice cream, basically helping her have the time of her life after she spent a year locked up inside the cabin to protect her from the bad guys, Donna gives Brooke a taste of the outside.
She takes her to a disco slash roller skating rink and the two have a gala time.
As the two young girls go around roller skating, gorging down fries, and looking out for each other when creepy dudes hit them up, fans got all emotional.
One of them tweeted: "This show really takes your emotions all over the place. You get a fun scene at the roller rink with Def Leppard playing, and then a nod to Urban Legend which turns into a murder in broad daylight."
Another one chimed in, with praises for Roberts and Ross, writing: "OMG!! True American Horror Story!! Emma Roberts, you deserve an award for this episode! Girl! And your friend. I don’t know her name yet, but I will by the end of the night! And Dylan!! Spot on!!"
