It’s hard to believe we’re at the end of another season! This week we dive into Episode 12, Inverting the Pyramid of Success, which is packed with twists, turns, many things coming full circle, and a surprise ending. There was a lot to talk about and Jeff and Dimple wasted no time diving right into it.

This week we explore the theme of choices. Ted’s choice to keep his panic attack from the team and the aftermath of sharing it with the Diamond Dogs. Keeley’s choice to move onward and upward in her career. Sam’s choice to stay at Richmond and do what’s best for his personal journey. The team’s choice to believe. And Nate’s choice to direct his anger at Ted and then walking away from Richmond after tearing up the team’s beloved BELIEVE sign.   

Tune in to hear Jeff and Dimple as they take a deep dive into the season 2 finale in this extra-long episode of What Would Ted Lasso Do?

“Again, I love his reaction, like don’t you dare. You look so powerful. And he doesn’t say beautiful. I think he says powerful. And I love that. Because you know, so often that’s the stuff women get compliments on. But it is, she is powerful.” Dimple (42:52)
