When Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8 emerges, it marks a turning point for several characters and their stories. It also sets up the end of many big storylines. With only four episodes left until the end of the Apple TV+ series, it’s unsurprising that some plots are moving forward in big ways.
Ted Lasso season 3 has been about Ted being happy at AFC Richmond, making predictions about Rebecca’s future, Keeley’s life-changing after Roy broke up with her, and Jamie growing up and becoming a star for AFC Richmond. Each show has mostly been about one of these plots in the last season.
After what happened in Season 3, Episode 7 of Ted Lasso, the next part of the story starts with AFC Richmond on a winning run because of Total Football. The status of different relationships is a big part of the show, as Jack and Keeley, Ted and his ex-wife Michelle, and Nate and Jade all find out important things about their present and future.
There are also more personal stories, like a report on Colin’s secret, Trent Crimm joining the Diamond Dogs, and more. Here is a full recap of Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, including the essential information.

Ted Lasso Season 3 Episode 8 Recap
Keeley’s Old Nude Video Leaks Online
In Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, the main plot is about Keeley. This is because an old video of her in her underwear leaked online. The video comes out as part of a bigger scandal, and Keeley is just one of many celebs whose private s*xual photos or videos have been leaked, just like in 2014, when many people were affected by a scandal.
The leak of Keeley’s naked video makes her personal and professional life a mess. Jack wants her to say she’s sorry she ever made the video, but she doesn’t want to. Roy tries to support Keeley during this time, but he asks who it was made for, which is rude and puts them even further apart.
Ted Lasso admits in the end that the video was made for Jamie. It was made for a romantic partner while they were away from Keeley and showed her masturbating. In the last part of Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, when Jamie goes to Keeley’s house to check on her, he tells her this.
This is where he says that the video got out because he wasn’t careful enough when he tried to delete it. Keeley does not blame Jamie for the nude video leaking. Instead, she hugs him for coming to see how she is. It’s possible that if he is responsible, Keeley will want to be with Jamie even more.
Isaac Finds Out That Colin Is G@y From The Pictures On His Phone
It was only a matter of time before more people at AFC Richmond discovered Colin is g@y. In Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, Isaac was the latest person to find out. Because a celebrity’s naked picture gets out, Isaac tells everyone on the team to remove private photos or videos on their phones.
Colin leaves the locker room with his phone before finishing the job, and Isaac follows him to ensure he does it. This makes Isaac want to take Colin’s phone. Even though the episode doesn’t show what Isaac sees on Colin’s phone, his response tells much about what he sees.
During the phone photo purge, Colin leaves the locker room because he doesn’t want to lose these memories and pictures of past or current relationships. When Isaac takes Colin’s phone and looks at the images on it, it’s clear that he is surprised.
After his initial shock, the captain of AFC Richmond doesn’t say anything, but by the time he gives Colin his phone back, he seems to have accepted that Colin is g@y. Since they don’t have any more scenes together in this episode, we won’t see how the rest of the AFC Richmond team finds out and responds to the secret until later.
Nate’s Journey To Happiness: Life After AFC Richmond
In Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, there is an important story about Nate. It is about how he is learning to be happy, even though he seems to miss his time and relationships at AFC Richmond. Nate’s happiness comes from his relationship with Jade getting stronger.
By the show’s end, they are officially boyfriend and girlfriend, and West Ham has won another game. But both of these things remind him of his good times with Ted Lasso and other coaches and players at AFC Richmond. This is clear from Nate trying to make the Love Hounds look like the Diamond Dogs.
Near the end of Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, we get a hint of how Nate feels about AFC Richmond and Ted. She says that Ted, Henry, and Beard looked like they were enjoying themselves at the West Ham game, which made Nate happy.
This happens after he smiles when he sees that Ted, Beard, and Henry are there to watch him teach and almost tells Rupert that he thought it was funny to see them there. This should be important to Nate’s journey to redemption and his ultimate reconciliation with Ted, whether he stays at West Ham or returns to his old team.
Keeley and Jack’s Relationship Takes a Dramatic Turn
In Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, there is a big change in how Keeley and Jack feel about each other. The leak of Keeley’s naked video strains their relationship, and Jack wonders how it will affect KJPR. This is when Jack’s true colors start to show.
She tries to get Keeley to apologize for the video, hides her from the public, and only calls Keeley her friend in public, even though she calls her frequently her girlfriend in private. Jack’s actions show who she is and offer some of the scary things about her that Rebecca tried to tell Keeley about before.
The events cause Keeley and Jack a big problem, which is when Jack’s “flight over fight” answer kicks in. Jack leaves Keeley’s place because they fight about the PR statement, and Keeley doesn’t want to put it out.
Jack tells Keeley that she isn’t sure if she’ll come, which could mean their once-promising relationship has suddenly ended. If that’s the case, it’s because Jack thinks Keeley will hurt her image and how people see her. This shows that she never cared that much about Keeley to begin with.
Michelle, Who Used To Be Ted’s Wife, Doesn’t Get Married To Dr. Jacob
In Ted Lasso season 3, episode 8, we find out that Michelle and Dr. Jacob do not get engaged. This is a big change. After learning that they are going to Paris, which has some of Michelle’s favorite places, Ted worries that this is Dr. Jacob’s plan. Ted’s worry that Dr. Jacob might ask Michelle to marry him was for nothing.
His ex-wife returns to pick him up but doesn’t bring an engagement ring. It’s unclear if Jacob never asked her to marry him or because she said no if he did. In either case, the possibility that Michelle and Ted could get back together remains.
No matter what happens between Michelle and Ted in the future, the plot helps him because Rebecca gives him good advice. She tells Ted that his time with Michelle is over and that he shouldn’t worry about what Michelle and Dr. Jacob do. Instead, Rebecca tells him to pay attention to Henry and work on making their bond stronger. It’s a turning point for Ted and could also be a sign that Rebecca will become a mom if she stays with Ted at the end of Ted Lasso.
