HDMI capture card.

Something like:

If the tv is connected to the laptop, its acting as another display already, so you should be able to capture the screen as is in something like OBS

Will connecting it to the tv still capture only the tv?

If connected correctly yes.
But its not really capturing the TV just the signal the TV gets. But you will need physical access since you need to put the capture device between them.
2in1 --> capture device --> TV
