Ted Lasso S2E10 "No Weddings And A Funeral" Review: A Tragic Scenario Brings The Tears and Smiles


Release date: September 24, 2021
Running time: 46 minutes

Rebecca is stunned by a sudden loss. The team rallies to show their support, but Ted finds himself grappling with a piece of his past.

I know I have been complaining about a general lack of soccer action in Ted Lasso, but S2E10 has no soccer action and I still loved it.  This episode starts with an emotional bang as Rebecca gets some horrible news, but then uses that to explore some character traumas, providing a nice avenue for additional character development.  If the last episode was a chance for Beard to shine (very loosely used), then this one is a chance for Rebecca and Ted to dig into some of the issues that we have been seeing throughout this season.  Rebecca especially gets a lot of screen time and has to deal with some upsetting situations and realizations.  But through this all you get the drama that we have come to love from Ted Lasso, and the random encounters and revelations.

But what is great about this episode is that it really allows some old wounds to be explored. You leave with a better understanding of some of our favorite characters from the show.  And it also causes some plot threads that have been developing to come to a head, paving the way for some future exploration in the finale.  But what I loved most about this episode is that it highlights how this Richmond club has become both a team and a family without needing any sports.  You get to see the characters in a very different scenario, with just as much heart, love, and camaraderie as in any match.  And you will leave this episode with a smile, a tear, and a warm feeling in your heart.  

Watch it.
