Ted Lasso Season 1 Episode 4 Recap

The episode starts with AFC Richmond losing a game with a score of 2-0. Jamie and Roy have an argument and are even ready to fight, but Ted comes and breaks it up. There is an extremely important fundraising gala for underprivileged children that is going to take place in the evening. Rebecca is hosting it and is feeling quite pressured to make the event as successful (if not more) as it used to be when her ex-husband Rupert was hosting it alongside.

Rebecca is still a little under confident in her abilities, even on the red carpet of the event. On the other hand, Ted is focused on team-building and ensures that Roy, Jamie, and he sit at the same table so that Ted can get them to work their issues out. The manager also tells his players to find some common ground and develop mutual respect. Meanwhile, when the musical guest cancels, Rebecca is feeling anxious about finding another replacement in such a short time. Ted wishes her good luck backstage and gives her some public speaking tips. She goes on the stage and kicks off the event, but Rupert shows up there and leaves her stunned. 

Rupert’s surprise appearance is definitely something that Rebecca was not expecting, but she holds her own. He tells the crowd that the previous year, £800,000 was raised for the underprivileged children, and Rebecca says that she hopes the amount can be crossed this year.  A few moments later, Rebecca introduces Ted to Rupert and also asks her ex-husband to host the auction, since the crowd would rather see him anyway. Roy and Jamie also have quite an honest conversation about why both of them dislike each other. Keeley finds out that Jamie has brought another date to the gala, and breaks up with him. By the end of the auction, Rupert publically announces his million-pound donation to the cause.

Ted saves the music situation by giving a chance to Cam, a street musician, and the dance floor is filled with people. The gala is a fantastic success, and Rebecca ends her night drinking with her new friend Keeley.
