With 7 wins at this year’s Primetime Emmys, ‘Ted Lasso’ has once again shown why it is one of the best shows on TV right now. Season 2 of the Apple TV+ series gave us an idea that it is capable of making you laugh as well as fill your eyes with tears with emotional backstories and its latest episode is just like that.

In one of the earlier episodes, we saw Ted talking to the therapist and telling her about the panic attacks he has been dealing with lately. He told her that it was all due to the sudden death of his father and he is unable to forget that he killed himself. The makers decided to expand Ted’s relationship with his dad in the tenth episode and it’s surely going to make everyone emotional.

So, the episode starts with the tragic news that Rebecca’s (Hannah Waddingham) father has passed away and the entire Richmond team is going for the funeral. Ted is getting ready for the funeral when he gets another panic attack and his hands start shaking. He calls the team’s therapist and when she reaches there, Ted is really hurt by whatever he has experienced now. He starts telling her what happened and in the process, we get to know about his relations with dad. The football coach told the therapist that his dad was a “quitter” because he quit on his family and he hated him for that.

Also, Ted opened up about what happened that fateful day when his father took his own life. He was out somewhere and as soon as he reached home, he heard a loud bang coming inside from the house. When he opened the door, he saw his dad’s body lying on the floor and went absolutely numb. He called 911 and called his mom that she needs to be there. That was the last time he saw his father. Ted broke into tears while saying that as he continued talking with the therapist.

The therapist asked if there was anything good he remembers about his father. He told her about the day when his father was up all night and helped him study. In the end, he told the therapist that he was a good dad. Ted once again broke into tears as he hugs the therapist.

But we know Ted can’t be serious for a long time. As soon as he hugs her, he asked if she’s going to charge him for this session.

The tenth episode of ‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2 was an emotional ride where we got to see why Jason Sudeikis is a phenomenal actor. Sudeikis's performance in this particular scene will take your heart away and a lot of people will think about their own relationships with loved ones.

I believe this show will lay a strong foundation in letting others know that a good story always triumphs.

‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2 returns to Apple TV+ with a new episode every Friday.
