Will Ted Lasso and Rebecca Welton finally get together? Little toy soldier in Season 3 leaves a clue
Spoilers for 'Ted Lasso' Season 3
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: With only a handful of episodes left of ‘Ted Lasso’ Season 3, there’s a lot of plots left to wrap up. The journey of Rebecca Welton (Hannah Weddingham) has been a rollercoaster ride after her divorce. Well, it all started with her divorce! However, with the finale approaching, her ending is far from clear. In Season 3, she expressed her desire to become a mother but that isn’t the only thing. She searched for love throughout the show, from Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh) to her deep friendship with Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) and her love affair in Amsterdam, the question remains -- who will she choose?
‘Ted Lasso’ Season 3 has intertwined several love triangles and love interests. For the most important character, Rebecca seems to choose between Sam and Ted. Although Sam and Rebecca’s story has already been explored in Season 2, the odds are in favor of Ted Lasso. Almost three seasons have passed, but Rebecca and Ted haven’t taken their solid friendship to the next level. The plot of Rebecca’s love life is taken far to the season finale, hoping to get a worth-waiting conclusion. Perhaps, the best conclusion for Rebecca might be none of them. Or it may be Ola matchbook representing Sam or little toy soldier representing Ted. As Sam and Rebecca’s love story was already doomed, we can only wait to see if Rebecca and Ted finally agree that they’re meant to be together.

Rebecca and Ted Lasso’s chemistry
The theory of Ted and Rebecca ending up as a couple on ‘Ted Lasso’ is highly possible, but it also comes with the risk of compromising the best friendship on the show. The characters' arcs have molded them into puzzle pieces to fit together. With Ted’s divorce getting messier, he wants to start a relationship. On the same side, Rebecca wants to start a family after reading from a psychic tells her that she will have children. All three 'Ted Lasso’ seasons surrounded Rebecca and Ted’s friendship and both dealt with a messy divorce. They both help each other to get through it as Ted brings out the best in Rebecca while she knows how to talk him off the ledge. The duo has a wonderful chemistry that can easily turn to love, yet their relationship remains platonic.
Though Ted is focusing on his relationship with Sassy, Rebecca’s friend, she isn’t looking for something serious. Their complicated relationship affects his friendship with Rebecca. Though they are above board in terms of friendship, anything above that wouldn’t come smoothly as there is limited time, even less to actually show them forming a romantic relationship.
Toy soldier might be the biggest hint
Early in Season 3, Rebecca is seen visiting a psychic who tells her that her love life is far from over. At the end of Episode 10, Rebecca takes out two objects -- a green matchbox and a toy soldier. As she has already explored her love life with Sam, she might likely choose the toy soldier this time. But with the show’s finale, her storyline has taken enough to finally reveal whom she chooses. This probably means we might not get to see a satisfying conclusion to Rebecca’s love life.
To recap, Ted is looking to move on and Rebecca is looking to find a new one. She wants a kind-hearted person with a family while Ted wants someone who matches his optimism. Well, the two of them have had a genuine friendship that can dedicate to a romantic relationship. All odds are in Ted and Rebecca’s favor, rest will be revealed in the remaining episodes.
‘Ted Lasso’ Season 3 is streaming on Apple TV+.
