Ted Lasso S2E11 "Midnight Train to Royston" Review: Oh Wow, The Drama Is Here!

Release date: October 1, 2021
Running time: 46 minutes

A billionaire football enthusiast from Ghana makes Sam an unbelievable offer. Ted plans something special for Dr. Sharon’s last day with the team.

Alright, so I have been complaining in the last few reviews about a certain storyline just being introduced and then squashed, but oh boy does it come to a head here.  This episode again doesn't have any soccer but is makes it up with a whole ton of drama.  Members of the team deal with their own insecurities, growing unhappiness with their current situation, and an opportunity of a lifetime.  And this all feeds nicely into the big season finale, which I imagine will have many of these stories come to a head.  It has felt like the last few episodes have been building to an explosive finale, and it seems like this episode proves that.

But this is Ted Lasso so you also have plenty of humor, though as the series becomes more serious those are getting to be nice side dishes rather than the main course.  There are plenty of Ted Lasso-isms and a few moments of heart within all the drama.  But wow, did I love some of that drama.  Keeley gets a major role here and we get to see some of her vulnerability, which we don't normally get to see in her strong, confident persona.  We also see the Nate storyline play out much more here and it seems like it will become a major factor in the season finale.  And the cherry on top is that you get to see an amazing dance number that will put a smile on your face.  And after this wonderful episode of drama and revelations, you get an ENDING that sets up the finale perfectly.  And wow can I not wait to see how this ends.  

Watch it.
