Ted Lasso S2E12 "Inverting the Pyramid of Success" Review: Finishes Season 2 Strong And Sets Up Season 3 Perfectly

Release date: October 8, 2021
Running time: 50 minutes

Richmond gets their final chance to win promotion as Ted deals with the fallout of Trent Crimm’s painfully honest exposé.

So Ted Lasso has been on a wild journey this season, and S2E12 ties up a lot of the loose plot threads into a satisfying and exhilarating finale.  I really loved how it built on the major events of the season and gave the viewers a sense of completion after all of this.  The series has been up and down, especially with a relatively weak middle part, but the ending of this season makes me excited for what is to come. It deals will all the drama that has been introduced and puts a lot of storylines that you have been following to bed.  

But what is also so special about this series is that although sports are the main subject, it is not the main focus.  Success, life, hard work, and following your dreams are the real drivers of Ted Lasso, and this episode has all of that.  This episode specifically deals with mental health (as have others) and with the benefit of having that out in the open and not hidden.  It also deals with masculinity and success, and what it means to be supportive.  And most importantly it brings back some of the things I've loved about this show, including good coaching and soccer action on top of the drama. Plus, it sets up some nice intrigue for the next season.  

Ted Lasso S2E12 finishes the series strong, with plenty of drama and heart to go with great sports action, and sets up a wonderful opponent for Season 3. 

Watch it.
