In this episode of the third season of Ted Lasso, the team experiences yet another defeat in a friendly match in Amsterdam. The episode “Sunflowers” follows the characters as they explore the city and deal with their issues.
The episode opens with the team’s loss and the characters’ reactions. Rebecca, Keeley, and Leslie are disheartened, and Ted is frustrated. During post-match interviews, Jan Maas claims that Richmond’s spirit was broken a while ago, while Roy dismisses the loss as a “pretend match” and knocks down a poster of Zava.
Rebecca and Keeley plan to spend their night in Amsterdam apart, with Leslie heading to the red light district and Keeley planning to see the aurora borealis in Norway. Roy wonders where Keeley is going, and Rebecca responds that she’s “going somewhere that believes they deserve her.”
Ted decides to lift the team’s mood by announcing that there will be no curfew that night. Jamie, however, continues his training with Roy while Leslie asks Will to join him on his night out.
Rebecca explores the city alone and gets knocked into a canal by a passing cyclist. A man helps her out of the water and reveals she has been walking in the bike lane. Ted, meanwhile, seeks inspiration and finds it in a burger barn, but Beard dismisses it.
The team tries to decide on a plan for the night, with ideas ranging from a boat tour to a live sex show. Jan Maas suggests attending his cousin Martin Garrix’s party, but the team is divided.
Rebecca finds herself alone in a Dutchman’s boathouse, where an unknown person gives her tea. Leslie takes Will to Chet Baker’s memorial while Beard makes Ted a drug-fused tea. The team decides to go to the party, but Colin sneaks out to go to a gay bar and is followed by Trent.
Ted messages Rebecca but receives no reply. Rebecca emerges from the boathouse in a pretty orange dress, and the episode ends.
“Sunflowers” is a character-driven episode that explores the characters’ personal lives. Ted, in particular, is struggling with a lack of inspiration while Rebecca is dealing with her recent breakup.
