'Ted Lasso' Season 2 Episode 11: Did Nate betray Ted? His secret is out in the media
‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2 is slowly and steadily inching toward its conclusion and my heart aches after knowing that we would have to wait for a year or even more than that to see our favorite football coach back on screen. However, there are still two episodes remaining in the ongoing season and fans should expect some shocking things to happen.
The previous episodes have been really emotional and focused on a lot of storylines. However, Ted failing to cope with his mental health is still the one that fans are more invested in. In one of the earlier episodes, we saw Ted having a panic attack during one of Richmond FC’s match against Tottenham Hotspur. Even though Richmond won the game, but everyone was concerned for Ted and wanted to know what happened. Apart from the team, no one knows about this, including journalists. However, it is all about to change.
In the penultimate episode, we see Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) trying to give farewell to the team’s therapist Dr Sharon Fieldstone (Sarah Niles). The therapist has resigned from her post and Ted is ready to have a nice farewell gift for her. However, he gets to know from Higgins (Jeremy Swift) that she has already left because she had some emergency. Ted is not happy with it and reaches her home. He is not happy that she left with just a letter when he had something planned for her.
However, Fieldstone said he should read the letter first. He opens it and gets really emotional after reading it. Although we don’t get to know what’s written in it, we get the idea that it must be something heavy. They go for a nice day out, play games, and have drinks together. But, Ted surprisingly leaves her at the end of the night and gives him a letter saying, “Goodbye”. As soon as he reaches home, he receives a message from Trent Crimm, a sports journalist from The Independent, saying that he is writing an exclusive story on him. He sends the link and Ted is shocked to know that he has got to know about his “panic attack” during the game against Tottenham. Ted is surprised to know that Trent got to know about this because no one else, apart from the coaching staff, knew about this.
A few seconds later, Trent reveals that it was Nate (Nick Mohammad) who told him about the panic attack and wants to have a comment from him as well. Ted refuses to comment on it and just gets really emotional that someone from his team has backstabbed him. To be honest, it was not shocking that Nate did this. Earlier in the episode, he was jealous that he gave Ted a strategy for the next game and it will be Ted who’ll be getting all the credit for it if the team wins the game.
Not just that, since the time his strategy made them win against Tottenham, Nate has been getting a bit arrogant and speaks rudely with many people. I believe, something big is going to happen soon because Ted will surely confront him for what he has done.
Maybe, he won’t. We know that his soul is so pure that he won’t be able to say anything mean to him. On the other hand, Nate might tell him how Ted always gets the credit for the win even though he doesn’t do anything. I just hope, he doesn’t give up his coaching job for this.
The final episode is surely going to be super emotional and will reveal the fate of many people. However, people should enjoy the penultimate episodes because it perfectly sets up for an epic finale. A great episode with some really amazing acting skills by actors and brilliant writing from the writers.
