'Ted Lasso' Season 3 Episode 1: Nate channels his inner VILLAIN in a scathing press confernce about Ted
The ending of ‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2 broke a lot of hearts because no one ever wanted Nate to move away from AFC Richmond. However, his hatred toward Manager Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) made him realize that he needs to get out of this team in order to make it big. At the very end of Season 2, we go to know that Nate Shelley (Nick Mohammed) has now reached West Ham United and become the team’s newest Manager. Everyone knew that he will not be soft on his previous club and we saw that when he attended the season’s press conference.
Rupert, who is the owner of West Ham and ex-husband of Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham), seems to be pampering Shelley so that he could defeat AFC Richmond and relegate the team. All the pampering seemed to be working really well because it encouraged Nate to do better and be more ferocious. So, he was attending his first PC as the new manager and got really nervous at first and hid under the table, but he forgot everything and got up to answer the questions. A reporter asked him a derogatory question in which he said that he used to wash the “underwear” of Richmond players. Nate gives a befitting reply to the reporter and says that he can’t believe an intelligent reporter would end up asking such a “stupid question.”

'Ted Lasso' Season 3 Review: The most joyous show on TV returns with another enchanting chapter
As the press conference moves forward, another reporter asks about the predictions that put AFC Richmond at the 20th position. To which, he replied, “That’s because there is no 21st.” Suddenly, the phones chime up during the PC and the photo taken by the construction worker goes viral. The photo sees Richmond players going inside a sewer for a team-building session. When Nate sees that picture, he laughs and says, “Well, it makes sense to me that they are training in the sewers because their coach is so sh***y.”
Rebecca and Higgins were seeing that PC and they didn’t like what he said. Rebecca is not happy with Ted and blasted him for behaving like a child because she doesn’t want her team to be relegated. So, they decide on a new strategy and have some new people in the team when the transfer window opens.
Nate is living the time of his life and has a lot of power now. That’s the reason he won’t stop being ferocious this time around. How will Ted Lasso be able to tackle this situation? Well, let’s see.
