Favorite Ted Lasso quote of the week: There were too many favorites to remember (not spelled with a “U” per Ted). 

As audiences prepare to say “Bye, Bye, Bye” to season two of TED LASSO, the creators dangle a slew of plot threads that will need to be “N-Sync” before the finale next week. Of course, those plot threads will veer into spoiler territory if I mentioned them, but what I can say is, the second season now has a clear villain. 

There was no way that this week could hit the high of NO WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL. So the creators wisely use some “Good thinking, Abe Lincoln,” making the penultimate episode mostly set up. It focuses on Roy, Keely, Sam, and Nate, and it was a “Vanity Fair to remember.” It sets each of these characters up with so many cliffhangers to answer next week that I feel like we are in a limbo situation, “a great party game, but a horrible relationship status.” 

Ted plays pinball with the Doc in one emotional scene and says he loves the game because “your only opponent is yourself and gravity.” So here’s to the finale defying gravity next week and answering all of the audience’s questions about their favorite Richmond team. If not, I might just have to call the “Karma Police.”

It’s available on Apple TV+.
