'Ted Lasso': Signs, signs, signs everywhere

[This story contains spoilers for episode 5 of The Signs Ted Lasso’ of the third season. ]

At Ted Lasso’s press conference For three seasons, The Hollywood Reporter quizzes co-creator, executive producer and actor Brendan Hunt (Maximilian Osinski ) will disappear.

Hunter’s response: “I mean, you’ve seen this show before. You know how it goes.”

In “Signs,” the fifth episode of the show’s third season, it kicks off. Or rather, he went: igniting the squad ahead of a game against powerhouse Manchester City – essentially repeating the same idea Jamie (Phil Dunst) had previously pitched – Zawa didn’t play . (“Maybe he’s dead,” Ted muses from the sidelines. “Fucking best,” Roy growled.) He later explained to his social media followers — ahem, “believers” — Said, he will retire and focus only on his family and his family. Avocado farm.

“Sign” is a particularly apt title for this episode (on the nose? again; more on that in a few paragraphs) and metaphorically. She dated his new love (the always-popular Lucy Davis) for a minute early in season two, and she calls John a “shit in nine layers of armor” — which is exactly what Rebecca The misbehavior of Mom’s psychic reciting to her in the first two episodes. This happened when she was trying to get rid of the green matchbox at Sam’s Diner, which again shocked her so much that she went to the doctor to see if she would be able to conceive. The spectators couldn’t hear the doctor end his conversation after the City game, but judging by Rebecca’s body language and muted responses, it didn’t appear to be good news.

Earlier in order to get the matchbox, Waddingham told THR that Rebecca “had taken the psychic out of her head Just got it out, just decided, whatever I think about this quack, my mom sent me, she’s a charlatan, because she said Rebecca had a baby and she had to turn it off. But when When it came out… Rebecca was actually working. It was an obvious fact that what the psychic said had come true. I think it totally put her in free fall, which she didn’t need because she was already in Rupert Those two things combined – in my head, like she was in the tornado in The Wizard of Oz .

Meanwhile, Keeley (Juno Temple) has dealt with an even more visible sign after firing Shandy (Ambreen Razia) – in retaliation, Shandy went from commercial filming to Office, shit all over the conference room. However, it leads her to read a sign from one of her supporters, Jack (Jodi Balfour), as they crack a bottle of vodka and talk late into the night in her office. She kisses Jack, then pulls back and apologizes. However, Jack assured her that everything was fine.

Back in Richmond, Ted (Jason Sudeikis) has been trying to find out about his son Henry and the school bullying. He assumes Henry is the victim, and Beard (Hunter) and Roy (Brett Goldstein) offer all sorts of graphic ways to exact revenge on the kid’s behalf. However, it turns out that Henry is the aggressor. After the game, Ted finally got in touch and Henry told his dad that A) he didn’t follow Ted’s advice to “count to ” B) he apologized after he Rap in front of the class.

Every indication before this show is that Henry is a good kid, so this doesn’t seem like a starting pattern. It almost triggers a panic attack for Ted, though, as he reenacts the scene where Henry leaves London for Kansas. Still, Ted manages to breathe through it and get himself back where he can speak to the team.

This brings us to the “believe” sign. Half the sign fell off the wall again when Ted started talking about how Zava leaving the club turned into a positive. “We’re doomed,” Colin said, while Buberkage said “it’s a sign.”

“The truth is, it’s just a sign,” Ted replied – and then shredded it again, causing an uproar among the players. Then Ted delivered perhaps his most poignant speech to the team (and himself). Here’s the whole thing:

“Faith isn’t just because of what you hang on the wall. It comes from here [he points to his heart], here [his head] And here [his innards]. The only problem is we all have so much crap floating around us that a lot of the time we end up in our own way. Crap like jealousy or fear – shame. I don’t want to be with those anymore Shit gets mixed up, know what I mean? You know what? You know what I wanna fuck around? Believe me is important, no matter what I do or don’t achieve. Or believe that we should all be loved, no matter Have we been hurt or hurt others. Or what about beliefs about hope? That’s what I’m trying to address. Believe that things will get better – BelieveI will get better. Trust uswill get better. You believe in yourself and each other – that’s the basis of being alive. If you can do that – If each of you can actually do it – no one can tear it apart.”

Bits and pieces:

*work what Ted Lasso did in keeping Nate (Nick Mohammed) at least partially sympathetic The effort has been really remarkable so far this season. He takes Anastasia—the model Rupert introduced to him in the previous episode—on a date with Taste of Athens, a heart-wrenchingly sincere gesture, but one that’s totally different from Anastasia. do not match. Even the hitherto extremely unimpressed Jade (Edyta Budnik) notices that Nate’s heart is in the right place and drops her nonchalant demeanor to share some baklava with him. This is a sweet moment.

*Giving Barbara (Katy Wix) her own “beard after work” type presentation might be a little too much, but what Wix and the writers have done Come to Seed, aside from being a “stubborn CFO,” has some endearing details about her character. Her line “Don’t look at my desk drawer…don’t” is the comedic highlight of the episode.
