She told Jimmy Fallon this week that she didn't go ahead with it because she couldn't find any facilities with a good online review.

"I have to be honest, I was not doing super well mentally at that time," she confessed.

Hunter explained that quarantine and the global pandemic had a lot to do with this.

As a result, she started researching mental hospitals in North Carolina.

She explained, "'Cause I was like, might be a good decision to do that with where I was at."

"But all of them had terrible reviews on Google Maps."

The Jules actress shared her frustration over this with Sam when he called her later that day.

He pointed out that the reviews wouldn't be good because, "No one likes being at mental hospitals."

"No one's going to leave a good review for a mental hospital," Hunter laughed.

After this, the pair started, "tossing around ideas for the episode again."

"I wrote the episode instead of going to that kind of institution," Hunter revealed.

Surprised by the confession, Jimmy replied, "Wow! And you've got a smile on your face, that's unbelievable."
