Ted Lasso Season 3 Episode 8 Recap
Why does Ted think his ex-wife is getting engaged?
Ted thinks Dr. Jacob will propose to his ex-wife Michelle on their trip to Paris, so he calls a “Diamond Dogs” meeting. The guys are supportive, but Ted doesn’t mention that it’s just an assumption. Trent tells Ted he cannot worry about things he cannot control or worry about something that hasn’t happened yet.
Nate, however, is so insecure he wakes up early, so he brushes his teeth, shaves use the bathroom, and then showers before Jade wakes up. Bate is his own head, so he tries to create a male support group, but the “wolfpack” of West Ham gives him bad advice and consists of one man who has been divorced three times.
What does Ted pull out of his pocket?
Ted pulls out a green matchbook from his pocket while searching for money to give Henry to play pinball. It’s an eye-opening moment since we know Rebecca’s psychic predicted the love of her life would have this matchbook, “s***e in nining armor,” and thunder and lightning.
Could Ted be Rebecca’s love of her life?
What did a hacker leak online of Keeley?
There was a massive online hack, and someone leaked a “sexting” video Keeley made, but we don’t know who it was meant for. This is mortifying for Keeley, who had a naked photo sent to her classmates in secondary school. Keeley’s girlfriend, Jack, tells her she will take care of it.
However, Jack gives Keeley a statement to post on her social media accounts. It says, “Let me convey my deepest apologies, and I deeply regret the video some of you have seen online. I’m beyond embarrassed, and I should have never made this video in the first place. I hope you can forgive me while I learn and grow.”
However, the statement implies that Keeley did something immoral, causing Keeley to feel humiliated, especially since it came from someone she loves and trusts.
What does Isaac find on Colin’s phone?
We don’t know precisely what Isaac found on Colin’s phone, but we assume it must have been videos, photos, or messages confirming that Colin is a member of the LGBTQ+ community. This is because after the team discovered a video of Keeley that was leaked online, the team captain ordered his teammates to delete everything from their phones.
After hearing this, Colin sneaks away and sits outside the locker room for privacy. Isaac sees this, follows him out, and caringly tells Colin to delete anything embarrassing on his phone.
Colin is defensive and tells him to “f**k off”. Isaac laughs, grabs his phone to see why Colin is so apprehensive, and his smile disappears. He looks at Colin, hands him back his phone, and walks away.
Is Jade now Nate’s girlfriend?
After reading an online article about Nate’s latest win, Jade tells him she likes when her “boyfriend” smiles. For some context, Ted and Beard take Henry to a soccer match on their day off because he asked to go. The only game available is West Ham. Henry calls out Nate’s name with Ted’s permission, and Nate sees them in the stands. Nate then smiles.
Later, Nate’s boss apologizes for Ted being there and tells him it won’t happen again. Nate was going to dismiss the notion, but he deleted the unsent message and then agreed with him. The next day, Nate reads the article about Ted being at the game and is caught smiling again. This is when Jade makes the statement about being Nate’s girlfriend. Nate has never looked happier.
Who did Keeley make the video for?
Keeley made the video for Jamie when they were dating. Before we find this out, the subject of the recipient has been in question. First, Roy comes over to Keeley to see if she is okay but shows his jealousy when he asks her for whom it was made.
At first, Jack appears to support Keeley, but she cancels their plans to meet her family. Later that night, Keeley refuses to post an amended apology, and Jack shows her true feelings that she is embarrassed about Keeley’s actions.
Jack asks if more are out there, and Keeley replies she doesn’t know.
Jack is about to leave, but Keeley asks if she’s coming back. Keeley’s girlfriend replies that she doesn’t know. After she leaves the next morning, Jamie stops by to apologize for the video. Her ex-boyfriend explains he thought he “deleted most of them,” but they hacked his email. Keeley then hugs Jamie, indicating she forgives him.

Is Ted’s ex-wife engaged?
When Ted’s ex-wife returns from Paris with Dr. Jake, Ted sees that Michelle doesn’t have a ring on her left hand. Michelle and Henry leave his apartment, and he watches them from the window. Ted sees Henry ignore Jacob’s fist bump, and Michelle doesn’t kiss him.
Michelle looks back and sees Ted in the window. He waves, and Michelle waves back at Ted, who then puts his hands up to show he meant no harm. Ted looks confused but pleased as he walks away from the window.
