After planting the seeds of doubt in the final few episodes of Season 2, it was revealed that Apple TV+ series power couple Roy Kent and Keeley Jones are no longer together.

The start of the new season seems like little has changed between the two, except that Keeley now runs his own PR firm, and in an early conversation with Rebecca, Keely explained that she and Roy will be talking to Roy that night niece Phoebe.

Of course, “talk” could be referring to something, but as the decisive scene rolls around, it’s clear they’re not discussing birds and bees.

Why did Keeley and Roy break up?

When Phoebe asked why Roy and Keeley were no longer an item, Roy replied that they were too busy at work to be in a relationship anymore.

Roy went on to explain that while Keeley’s time and energy were spent running her PR firm, he now has more work to do as he oversees Richmond’s strategy following Nate’s departure.

When Roy drives Phoebe home, she asks him if he thinks they’re doing the right thing, before saying she thinks he’s stupid for breaking up with Keeley.

So Roy probably thinks Keeley is better off without him, since Keeley’s own career is taking off, especially when he thinks she looks a lot more natural in photos—she’s the independent Keeley Jones, after all.

Of course, the breakup also heralded the possibility of a love triangle forming after Jamie Tartt admitted he still had feelings for Keeley in the final few episodes of season 2.

But one thing we do know is that once all the episodes are done, everything in Ted Lasso will work out, though not necessarily in the way we expect.
