How different does Nate look?

So what happened in season two? The story continued to follow Ted, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team — despite having no experience, but winning the hearts of the players and fans with his upbeat approach to life. However, in season two Ted's close friend Nate grows disillusioned by him, eventually selling a story to the papers on Ted, and going on to manage a rival football club.

Discussing Nate's betrayal, one person wrote: " I am officially all caught up on #TedLasso!!! I can’t believe the rest of you have been dealing with the fact that Nate is a dreadful piece of garbage for over a year now!" Another person added: "My favorite thing about Ted Lasso is that even if you watch season 1 where Nate rises to become a hero - his cruel tendencies are still noticeable. When he's given the promotion and Rebecca pretends he's fired at first to swerve him, his words towards her are incredibly cruel."
