I’ll be the first person to admit that this season of “Ted Lasso” was a failure in many ways, but I’ll also admit that the Rebecca and Keeley reveal made me giddy. Waddingham and Temple have fantastic chemistry, and their characters’ friendship is among the best parts of the show, so seeing it wasted on wandering love interests and bizarre psychic predictions this season was disheartening. If the world of “Ted Lasso” lives on in another form, a new team-up with these two hilarious, charming, and dynamic women at the helm seems like the surest way to make it great.
Additionally, the final scenes also left the door open for several other characters to make cameo appearances, should “Ted Lasso” really call it his series finale and move on to a renamed spinoff. Nate (Nick Mohammed), Roy (Brett Goldstein) and Beard (Brendan Hunt, who once and for all solidified himself in this episode as the funniest actor on the show) all seem to be sticking around for the future of AFC Richmond, and their taped “believe” sign hints that they plan to keep the Lasso spirit alive for whatever comes next.
