Wow. I’m going to have to add this episode to my Christmas viewing list I do every year.
Feel good that stayed consistent to the characters. The hidden charity work done by the boss. The direct approach to getting the girl's stink fixed. The team coming together (again).I was surprised as well about the comments that the Xmas episode was "dividing the Ted Lasso community". Sure, it was a bit saccharine but what's wrong with a pure feel good episode every now and then?
I was having trouble following the narrative this week. Did the hunk Rebecca have come out of nowhere? And the sequence with Ted getting "sick" up to being found in the Doc's office just seemed disjointed to me. Did she find him *after* the drink with the players or before.And Rebecca's mystery man is...Sam! Can't wait to see what happens!
...and I don't think that the doc is going to make it for that one drink with the team...pure speculation, so I won't spoilerize...I think that Ted is having panic attacks because he's so far away from his son, and the doc will help him leave the team and move back to the US. Since this is the last season, and all.
Nice to see Nate the "Wonder Kid" help win the game.
That's not necessarily "bad" but just part of growth. Dealing with success and failure. His is the most human story on the show.up until he has his "wonder kid" moment, Nate was heading into a darker arc...he was unhappy and being shoved aside by the new assistant; who had the ear and respect of everyone...
I can see a fork in the road here where he starts demanding more (and not getting it) or if he's happy again because they won and he gets more respect...
I saw Friday night lights as being about the town not the team after the first season.
It would still be emotional as it is big growth for Keely and she wouldn't be as involved but that's what I thought would happen. Rebecca would just outsource PR to the new firm.The thing I didn't understand about it being a big emotional thing for Keeley to leave the team - Wouldn't it make sense for Rebecca to hire her new firm as the team's PR firm? So Keeley would continue to work with the team, just as a third-party PR rather than in house.
