He is a sophisticated and smart person who is trying to keep up with the post he has been assigned to. The team has been owned by Rebecca Welton, who initially wanted to ruin the team because her husband loved them.
The upcoming episode is titled “No weddings and a funeral”. That definitely gives us the idea that this episode is going to be a bit sad. Maybe the terms have been used as a metaphor but still, there will be something that will sadden the fans.
Something is going on in Rebecca’s life. She has to pass through a sudden loss and on the other hand, Ted is battling with a piece of his past. It was shown that Ted had lost his father at a very young age. So Ted will have to support Rebecca but that will open old wounds.
Who might Rebecca be losing? There are many possibilities. It can be either of her parents and that will leave her in dismay. however, there is a possibility that it can be her long-time friend Sassy. It will leave Rebecca broken. Indeed, the twist will be when, when someone unexpected dies. So it can be her husband too. She is divorced but her husband dying can be hard for her. It will be interesting to see who the writers are going to rule out.
